Montney Shale pure-play Arc Resources Ltd. is forecasting strengthened pricing at the NOVA/AECO hub in western Canada relative to the U.S. Henry Hub over the coming months, according to management.

In a conference call to discuss third-quarter earnings, CFO Kris Bibby said “we are excited for the immediate near term in the winter. We would anticipate very healthy pricing heading through winter, just given the demand construct that we’re seeing and how strong it is.”

He added, “As we move into the summer, one of the key things is there will be some expansions” on the Nova Gas Transmission Ltd. (NGTL) pipeline “that should alleviate some of the pressure that we saw this last summer.”
