Eleven Million Barrels of Tui Oil

14 April 2008


Production from the Tui oilfields off the coast of Taranaki has now reached 11 million barrels of oil.

New Zealand Oil and Gas Ltd (NZOG) is the New Zealand-based partner in the Tui Area Oil Fields, with a 12.5% stake.

Production began on 30 July last year and yesterday total production to date passed the 11 million barrel mark. NZOG’s share of production to date is approximately 1.38 million barrels.

The field performance has continued to be better than forecast. Associated water is being produced from the field, but this continues to be at lower rates than expected from original field simulation models. The average daily oil production has stayed above 40,000 barrels, but this is expected to decline in coming months.

Based on the continued performance of the reservoirs, the operator AWE is undertaking a reserves review to match field performance against actual and expected production. This is expected to be completed by the end of June 2008.
