Crescent Point's 2011 capital expenditures budget has been set at C$800 million. Execution of the budget is expected to increase average daily production to more than 112,000 barrels per day (17,800 m3/d) of oil equivalent, weighted approximately 90% to oil.

Beginning in 2013, Crescent Point Energy will be the sponsor of the Crescent Point Energy Western Canada Cup.[2]
