EUB closes file on Compton proposal for Calgary area drilling

CALGARY, ALTA-The Alberta Energy and Utilities Board (EUB) has closed Compton Petroleum's applications associated with its North Okotoks horizontal well program due to the company's failure to file its Emergency Response Plan (ERP) by the January 3, 2006 deadline. Late last month, the EUB refused the company's request for a deadline extension, but said it would accept a draft ERP on January 3 instead. Compton was seeking approval to conduct a drilling program 4.5 kilometres southeast of the nearest community in Calgary.
