Nov 24 (Reuters) - Pace Oil & Gas Ltd PCE.TO said it will buy certain oil weighted assets for C$52 million to solidify its position in Alberta.
The company said the new assets are currently producing 1,350 barrels of oil equivalent per day (boe/d), which has 41 percent oil.
The Canadian company said it will acquire 100 percent interest in a keyhole section of its existing waterflood in Dixonville, which is in north-western Alberta.
It will also consolidate additional surrounding lands and associated infrastructure.
