OUR PHILOSOPHY
We are built on more than a century of sound business practices

The Mancal Group is owned by the Mannix family and is founded on 120 years of entrepreneurial spirit, hard work and determination. The Mancal Group believes it shares a responsibility to Canadians and as a result is driven by a commitment to communities and the Canadian people in advancing society.

Much of the infrastructure that exists in Canada today was built by the Mannix family as their journey with industry began in 1898. Through the generations that followed, the family's resilience, entrepreneurialism and community focus allowed them to continue to successfully construct projects and deliver essential products to support economic growth and social change. With these same guiding principles, the family started Mancal Energy Inc. in 1999.

Sustainability at Mancal Energy

At Mancal, we believe that entrepreneurial spirit and collaboration will
drive sustainable energy development in this country, and beyond our
borders. This commitment is reflected in our community engagement,
in our corporate sustainability strategy and through our risk
management processes.

OUR APPROACH
Advancing our ESG performance

Although this is our first Environment, Social, Governance (ESG) report, the Mancal Group has been operating under the principles of ESG since the late 1800’s. Even in the early years, the 'outfit' was a pioneer in sustainability and health and safety practices ensuring that environmental protection and well-being were part of doing business. Nonetheless, this report marks an important step in our sustainability journey.

This report provides our key stakeholders with a comprehensive view of our Company and values, how we are managing risk and setting our goals for the sustainable development of our assets. This report has been completed with data collection procedures that ensure data we are using is accurate and verifiable, and it has been reviewed and approved by Mancal Corporation's Board of Directors.

We used Global Reporting Initiative (GRI) Sustainability Reporting Standards to provide a framework for this report which includes the GRI disclosures that our Leadership team has determined are relevant. The index at the conclusion of the report provides guidance on where the disclosures can be found in the report. Our intention is to publish an ESG report annually to update our stakeholders on new and exciting initiatives and the progress we have made towards our sustainability goals. Any reference to "Mancal", "Mancal Energy", "MEI", "the Company", "we", "our", etc. refers to Mancal Energy Inc. and not any of the other Mancal Group of Companies. Any limitations with regards to the data have been identified within the report.

OUR COMPANY
Entrepreneurial spirit and community advancement



Mancal Energy’s corporate headquarters are in Calgary, Alberta and our field operations are based in Drayton Valley, Alberta. We are focused on the development and production of liquids rich natural gas and oil. In 2019, liquids production accounted for 50% of our total production. Our annual average production for 2019 was 5,403 barrels of oil equivalent per day. Barrels of oil equivalent is calculated using a conversion ratio of six thousand cubic feet of natural gas for each barrel of oil. This balanced portfolio allows the Company to maintain a strong balance sheet that provides added stability through varying commodity price cycles.

OUR LEADERSHIP
Message from the Chairman

Change is challenging. The world today is changing faster, more unpredictably and with greater swings than at any other time in my 60 years of experience. All areas are being affected: the environment, our social and political norms and practices, and of course the economic challenges our business faces. Each of these areas require us as a team to excel and be best in class when it comes to protecting the environment, being socially responsible and governing our actions and decisions with discipline to the highest measure.

I am proud of the way our Mancal Energy ‘outfit’ has responded to these changes and how we have overcome and embraced diversity with integrity and balance.

The Mancal Group has a deep history of over 120 years of engaging in business, primarily within Canada, in a manner that has always promoted the fundamental actions of ESG priorities. These environmental, social and governance priorities are nothing new to us, and even though we have not prepared a report such as this to discuss our performance, we often acknowledged and recognized the successes we have made with respect to ESG initiatives. 

With this inaugural report, we hope to provide some examples from our proud past and to report on ESG initiatives we are currently engaging in.

Welcome to our first ESG report!

Regards,
Fred P. Mannix

OUR LEADERSHIP
Message from the President 

Mancal Energy is very proud to release this, our inaugural ESG Report – 2020. Although this is our first formal ESG report, Mancal Energy has been proudly practicing and demonstrating ESG responsible measures for over 20 years and our shareholders, the Mannix family, have built this and other companies over the decades using what I would describe as ESG fundamental principles.

Because Mancal Energy Inc. is private, we do not provide financial statements or operational updates to the public for review. However, we do actively participate with our public peer companies in all the environmental and socially responsible initiatives our sector has undertaken over the years, making Canada one of the preeminent jurisdictions in the world when it comes to ESG compliance. This year, we elected to prepare a publicly available report demonstrating our ESG practices and statistics, because we believe it is important and we want to demonstrate support for the Canadian energy sector in terms of ESG importance, compliance and initiatives towards continual improvement.

ESG practices are nothing new to Mancal and the Mannix family. We have been practicing them as a matter of business for decades. As an example, the following is an excerpt from "Beating the Odds", a book published in 1998 commemorating the first 100 years of the Mannix family in business.

  In 1966, Manalta Coal (a Mannix company) closed a coal mine and filled the pit and levelled spoil piles to restore the landscape to its previous condition. At the request of the Taber Fish and Game Association, one portion of the pit was only partially filled in, then flooded to create a small lake. The lake was then used as a hatchery by the Fish and Game Association. While they were helping to shape the new regulatory environment, they were integrating reclamation work into their mine planning and operations work.

More recently, Mancal Energy has dramatically reduced emissions at several of its wellsites by installing solar powered pumps instead of the traditional pneumatic (methane) controlled pumps. Our goal on new wells is to get to zero emissions at the wellsite, and we believe we are very close to achieving this target.

I believe we all acknowledge the world is changing both from a climate and social perspective. We also recognize that the world needs energy and we need to increase the standard of living across many undeveloped nations in the world while maintaining the existing standards we are accustomed to. In order to do that, we need energy and thus we believe the energy sector (and hence our company) will play a vital role in that mission. However, we want to develop our resources responsibly, by minimizing environmental impacts, working within our communities to provide jobs and other forms of support, and doing our business in a manner ensuring that we abide by all regulations and comply with all standards.

In conclusion, I look forward to having you, the reader, learn a bit more about Mancal Energy, the Mannix family and our commitment to the principles of ESG. We are proud of our history and working for the ‘outfit’ as it has been called for generations; a nod to 1898 when F.S. Mannix started up his first company with a team of horses and a wagon. Through four generations, the Mannix family have demonstrated sound ESG principles and ingrained that culture into their companies; long before the acronym ESG or environmental regulations were contemplated.

Sincerely,
Byron Lutes
 

Byron Lutes, P.Eng President

GOVERNANCE
A commitment to excellence 

Our Shareholders, the Board of Directors and the Leadership
Team promote strong corporate governance as it is essential
to achieving exceptional performance.


Board of Directors
The Board of Directors (the “Board”) provides oversight on the strategic planning of the business, provides oversight on the business process to identify potential risks and is the primary group influencing corporate governance. The Board has a Human Resources & Compensation Committee, an Audit Committee, a Reserves & Valuation Committee, and a Health & Safety Committee. The Health & Safety Committee has developed and approved management systems that ensure Mancal Energy’s operations comply with all laws and exceed the applicable regulations with respect to the health and safety of all persons associated with the operations of the Company and the protection of environment. The Audit Committee meets semi-annually and is responsible for overseeing financial reporting, internal controls, risk and compliance. The Board meets on a quarterly basis.

President and CEO
The President and the Chief Executive Officer are responsible for the Company’s strategic approach to sustainable development.

Leadership Team
The Company's Leadership Team is responsible for contributing to the strategy, prioritizing initiatives and monitoring project development to completion.

 

The following policies help govern sustainability
performance at Mancal Energy.

Business Practice & Ethics Policy
It is the policy of Mancal Energy to maintain the highest standard of ethics in its relationships with customers, governments, suppliers, competitors, joint venture partners, its employees and the community at large. We must not only conduct, but must be seen to conduct, our business dealings in accordance with high ethical standards.

Policies Governing Sustainability

Business Practice & Ethics Policy   Environmental Policy
Equal Employment Opportunity   Health & Safety Policy

Respect in the Workplace Policy   Whistleblower Policy

Equal Opportunity Employer
It is the policy of Mancal Energy that all persons are entitled to equal employment opportunity without discrimination based on the federally and provincially legislated prohibited grounds. Specifically, employment opportunities are open to all qualified candidates based on education, experience, aptitude and abilities.

Whistleblower Policy Mancal
Energy believes in the protection of individuals against retaliation where an employer’s activities are deemed to be illegal, unethical or dishonest. The Company subscribes to the C.A.R.E. program which is an acronym for Confidential Anonymous Reporting for Employees. This is an independent service operated by Grant Thornton LLP which allows employees to anonymously raise a concern of misconduct if a violation has not been adequately addressed. While this aspect of governance has been mandated for public companies, it is not a requirement for a private company. The Company is serious about the values and ethics of the organization and has therefore created a culture of support.

 

  Health & Safety Policy
Mancal Energy embraces and promotes a culture where health and safety, including psychological health, are an integrated component of our overall approach. The Company is committed to providing a safe and healthy work environment for employees, contractors, neighboring communities and other stakeholders who may be affected by our operations. In fulfilling this commitment, we have developed a health and safety program that details specific health and safety requirements and guidelines in compliance with all legislative requirements. The goal is a healthy, injury free workplace for all workers.

Respect in the Workplace Policy
Mancal Energy is committed to ensuring that employees are provided with a work environment that is respectful and safe. Any type of harassment or behavior that affects the safety and security of employees in the workplace is prohibited by the Company and is not tolerated. All employees are required to attend a Respect in the Workplace training seminar.

“Our safety program is essential to building a work environment that we can all be proud of. Our HSE program reaffirms our belief that safety of operations and our people comes first.”

- Mike Foster, Operations Superintendent



Environmental Policy

Mancal Energy is focused on minimizing the adverse impacts on the environment resulting from its business activities. In order to achieve that objective, the Company considers environmental impacts in project decisions and has built management plans that include these factors. We focus on prevention, scheduled environmental reviews and employee training and education as proactive measures to prudently operate the Company’s asset base.

We are compliant with all applicable laws, regulations and have developed appropriate emergency response procedures and remedial action plan that minimize adverse effects on the environment and ensure any impacts are handled timely and efficiently. The Company is responsive and sensitive to the public’s concerns in the conduct of its business activities and is accountable for its actions.

HEALTH & SAFETY
Our commitment to staff, neighbours and communities 

  Management's Approach
Mancal Energy has an extensive health, safety and environment (HSE) program which involves quarterly reporting to the Board on HSE performance. The Board has delegated authority to the Environment, Health and Safety Committee to oversee policies relating to environment, health and safety. Everyone employed by Mancal Energy is responsible for maintaining our HSE program.

The prevention of incidents and accidents through front of mind awareness gained from tailgate to boardroom safety conversations, hazard awareness training, near miss, incident and accident reporting followed by thorough investigations is paramount to the Company. We track key data and safety statistics which allows us to identify trends and opportunities to strengthen our program.

All contractors providing service to Mancal Energy go through a pre-qualification process which requires them to submit appropriate worker compensation, insurance and safety program documentation for review.

  0 Lost Time Incidents

0 Recordable Injury Frequency

 


Education & Training

At Mancal Energy, we provide an e-learning experience to our staff and operators through an online library that is used as a resource to continue development of our competency management and training system. Our e-learning education and training platform allows for both voluntary and mandatory modules based on risk and time sensitivities. For critical competencies, mandatory tests are required to see that those in positions of responsibility are equipped with the knowledge to understand a topic and are able to demonstrate that the task can be performed competently and safely. The e-library also provides a resource to enhance or refresh one’s knowledge as needed.

Emergency Response Plan
Our Emergency Response Plan ("ERP") sets out the steps and procedures to respond immediately in the event of an accident in order to reduce the risk of injury to people and the effects on the environment. To ensure our people and those of our contractors are prepared in the event of an accident, we conduct mock drills of real-life scenarios as well as table top exercises to train people and be able to provide a well-coordinated, systematic and measured approach in the event an actual accident.

The goal is a healthy, injury free workplace for all workers.

 

“We continue to build on our history of responsible stewardship of all Mancal’s resources – our assets, the environment, our people and the communities in which we live and work. We believe these are an essential part of our long-term success.”

- Bret A. Hughes, P.Eng Vice President Engineering

ENVIRONMENT
Air, Land, Water, Biodiversity, Asset Integrity 

Regulatory Update
On January 1, 2020, the Government of Canada applied the federal fuel charge in Alberta under the Greenhouse Gas Pollution Pricing Act ("GGPPA"). The GGPPA includes provisions to exempt facilities subject to provincial policies that meet federal benchmark criteria. The Technology Innovation Emissions Reduction ("TIER") regulation in Alberta complies with the federal criteria and is an improved system that assists companies in finding innovative ways to reduce emissions and invest in clean technology. Mancal Energy has opted into the TIER regulation and is compliant with the program.

We have dedicated a significant amount of effort on methane emissions reduction activities as methane is 25 times more impactful on the environment than carbon dioxide over a 100 year period.

Our team is committed to minimizing the emissions intensity of the Company’s operations and is focused on reducing methane leaks, reducing flaring as well as limiting power consumption through energy efficiency measures. With this objective in mind, in 2019, Mancal implemented a methane reduction initiative that focused capital investment into leading emissions reduction technologies. The Company worked in close collaboration with domestic technology and service providers to install technologies that reduce methane emissions through the elimination of vented gas on tanks and pneumatic devices. We continue to explore new and innovative ways to eliminate and reduce methane emissions from operations in partnership with select vendors.
 

Fuel Switching
We utilize bi-fuel drilling rigs that substitute the use of carbon intensive fuels such as diesel with natural gas to reduce the carbon intensity of its operations. MEI also trialed the use of natural gas-powered electric generators for well sites in a core area as a substitution for diesel generators. These allow for a reduction in diesel consumption and significantly reduces emissions of CO2, NOx and SOx from these sites.

Zero Methane Emissions Wellsite
We are installing LCO Technologies “Crossfire” Clean Air and Chemical Management Solution. This ultra-low power chemical injection pump system is designed to reduce maintenance costs, chemical costs, and methane emissions all with the same reliability as standard pneumatic pumps.

The “Crossfire” solution centers on a solar powered instrument air compressor to produce clean, dry compressed air for use in the pneumatic system as opposed to production gas. It is powered off solar energy and capable of running weeks without recharge. The system provides exact chemical volume injection and can automatically adjust rates according to production rates. The platform tracks and stores data to achieve profitable emission reductions utilizing Alberta's carbon credit offset system.  

Tank Vapour Recovery
In 2019, the Company installed a new vapor collection system at our Karr property to capture 100% of the natural gas that previously escaped from the tanks used to store oil prior to shipping down a pipeline. During oil storage, light hydrocarbons dissolve in crude oil, resulting in methane vaporization. These vapors are often vented to the atmosphere or flared. To prevent emissions of these light hydrocarbon vapors, Mancal Energy uses this vapour collection technology on its oil storage tanks where practical.

 

Mancal's tank vapour capture system was installed in 2019 and eliminates 100% of methane emissions from entering the atmosphere each year.

Solar Chemical Injection
In two of our operating areas, we have installed Sirius solar injection pumps which have eliminated methane venting from onsite chemical injection activities.

 

Pneumatic Device Conversions
In 2019, Mancal Energy partnered with an award-winning climate solution company to replace 100% of the Company’s high bleed controllers resulting in 3,200 tCO2e annual emissions reduction.

We continue to look at other pneumatic devices to replace and are committed to moving away from natural gas pneumatic devices to air or electric on all future locations, similar to our upcoming zero emission wellsites.

Air Performance
GHG emissions in oil and gas operations are produced from flaring, combustion and venting. Emissions from operations can be classified as direct or indirect. At Mancal Energy, direct emissions result from on-site fuel, flare, and vent sources while indirect emissions are associated with purchased electricity.

Our direct emissions are primarily generated by the combustion of natural gas used in compressors, heaters, flares, and power generators. In 2019, our direct emissions were 46,136 tonnes of carbon dioxide equivalent while our indirect emissions were 3,561 tonnes of carbon dioxide equivalent.

This amounts to a corporate emissions intensity (direct and indirect emissions) of 0.025 tCO2e/BOE.
 


MEI focuses on conventional exploration and development projects in Canada. We do not develop or produce shale oil or shale gas which allows us to significantly reduce the water used in our process. When we use hydraulic fracturing, it is under strict government regulations.

Water Performance
Water is used for drilling and completion operations which includes hydraulic fracturing. We do not use any hydrocarbon based fluid to fracture. The Company participates in an online chemical disclosure registry which provides information on hydraulic fracturing and chemical usage, government regulations and groundwater protection. The protection of groundwater is paramount in the Company’s operations. Water that returns to surface following completion of a fracture operation is managed in accordance with AER standards. The protection of groundwater is also managed through wellbore design and construction which ensures that groundwater is isolated and protected from drilling fluids and all oil and gas activities. Produced water is sent to a third-party disposal or reused in our operations.

Land Performance
Mancal Energy operates and maintains more than 260 kilometers of pipeline, 13 multi-well oil batteries and more than 280 well-sites. The Company’s spill management efforts include monitoring and reviewing the integrity of our assets.

Emergency response training is conducted annually to ensure timely response should a spill occur. We enhance our asset integrity through pipeline inspections such as smart pigging, pipeline surveillance, application of corrosion inhibitors and the abandonment of high-risk wells.


Mancal's Pembina multi-well pad reduces land use and minimizes impact on land.

Operations
We primarily develop using horizontal wells allowing the Company to move from single wells to the use of multi-well pads. This has dramatically reduced surface disturbances. A single multi-well pad in our operations can support up to four or more wells. This reduction in surface footprint is amplified by allowing us to drill longer horizontal wells, thereby reducing the total number of wells and sites required for development. Today, we have drilled wells with horizontal lengths greater than 3,000 metres.

In 2019, the AER conducted a review of our operations which resulted in zero non-compliance issues.

 

When the Company is looking to explore in biologically sensitive areas, we ensure that we have adhered to the policies and procedures provided by the Alberta Energy Regulator (AER) that monitors nesting and breeding grounds of species.

  Land Disturbance
Our core area has the environmental benefit of being able to share surface infrastructure, such as roads, pipelines, and processing facilities between several different industry parties. Also, wherever possible, existing well sites, flow lines and surface equipment are reused instead of building new ones. This reduces the impact of our operations.
Spill Monitoring
Early on, the Company required the use of pollution control and detection devices (right) to prevent spills on all of the company's pumping oil wells. These operations focused policies and technology applications have been instrumental in reducing our impact on the environment when equipment wears or fails.

  Abandonment and Reclamation of Assets
The Company's land use is temporary in nature. As such, we are committed to returning the land to its owners in a responsible manner at the completion of the development and production of a resource. Although the Company currently estimates the associated cost of its asset retirement obligations to occur over a 40-year span, we continue to proactively manage any liabilities as they arise and are compliant with the AER’s requirements.

Mancal Energy contributes to the Orphan Well Association, which is managed by the Province of Alberta, to address the abandonment of orphan wells. The Company prioritizes the reclamation of sites with higher environmental risks. In the past year, Mancal has obtained three reclamation certificates.

Land Disturbance and Biodiversity
Our approach to pad design and horizontal directional drilling maximizes our connection to available oil and gas reserves while limiting the surface area disturbed by our operations. For all new developments, the Company recognizes and respects the existing biodiversity within an area and actively works to minimize operational impact. In areas of interest, studies to identify current activity, flora and fauna are conducted by industry experts during the initial phase of consideration.

 

"When I joined the Mancal team I was immediately impressed with how careful and deliberate Mancal was with proactively addressing abandonment and reclamation obligations. It's this commitment to restoring the environment in which we operate that I'm most proud of.”

- Jordan P. Murray, MBA Vice President Land


Operations Impact
The Company assesses the potential impacts of operations and is sensitive to the cumulative effects that an operation can have on an area. We continue to work with industry experts, where applicable, to minimize disturbance.


Mancal's partnered gas plant.

Examples of our commitment include:

  • Installing hospital grade mufflers on engines to reduce noise.
  • Working with farmers to ensure our operations do not bring in any unwanted plant species. In central Alberta we implemented a full protection plan to ensure farmland would not be contaminated with clubroot disease that affects canola crops. The protection plan included equipment cleaning and decontamination procedures.
  • Regular inspection and maintenance of lease sites.
  • Increasing our connectivity to wellsites to effectively monitor day to day operations. This initiative reduces noise, dust and vehicle intrusion in the communties in which we operate.

S O C I E T Y
Collaboration, Relationships, Trust 

Management Approach
Mancal Energy recognizes that entry into an area is a privilege and therefore works with communities to develop oil and gas resources in the most respectful and responsible manner. As a good neighbor, the Company ensures there is social funding to add to the economic well-being of the communities in which we operate.

"The Company has contributed to the growth and economic advancement of communities in providing jobs and engaging business.”

- Kathryn Stephenson, CPA Vice President Finance

 

Economic Impact
Over the last 20 years, Mancal Energy has invested over $900 million in Canada largely in acquiring land, drilling wells, and building facilities. In doing so we have engaged over 6,000 contractors and suppliers in various communities, employed local full time staff and have paid $260 million to governments, municipalities and regulators in the form of fees, royalties and taxes. These funds contribute to Alberta’s investment in building schools and much of the infrastructure that our communities continue to enjoy today. The Company contributes to social programs in communities that we are involved in by funding schools and athletic programs. We are committed to increasing the prosperity of communities and sharing in the economic benefits of resource development.

Indigenous Relations
The Company has assets that are adjacent to indigenous lands or are situated on crown lands where traditional use has been established. We are committed to respectful collaboration, ensuring that the rights and title holders’ heritage is considered in the development of these lands.

Management meets with Indigenous leaders to coordinate and facilitate discussions around planned projects. The Company aims to improve the economic situation in communities in and around our operations through engagement and economic activity. Throughout our engagement process we invite local and adjacent stakeholders and rights holders to collaborate and understand issues regarding the development plans. The Company gives back to the community in providing support for education and infrastructure.



The Aboriginal Consultation Office of the Government of Alberta has established procedures for consulting with Indigenous communities about their traditional lands. Mancal Energy believes in the consultation process and trusts that consultation will bring the company and community together to ensure the project's success.

Human Resources
Mancal Energy is committed to providing a culture of inclusivity and empowerment by encouraging a progressive environment where employees are engaged, motivated and challenged. We are dedicated to providing meaningful employment where all employees are treated fairly.

Additionally, innovation and creativity are encouraged, and entrepreneurial excellence is rewarded. Our relationships with staff, contractors and partners are important to us, and we act and treat everyone with integrity and respect. The Company believes in compensating fairly and providing a safe and healthy work environment. Through our recruitment process and beyond, we focus on attracting, retaining and developing talent.

Looking Forward
Our organization was built through hard work, honest leadership with strong ethics and on a foundation of environmental and social responsibility. We are proud of where we came from and we are excited for what is yet to come.
