We’re happy to report the positive findings in a report by Horizons Regional Council, which tracks and manages the land, air, and water for a large portion of New Zealand’s north island.
Horizons visited TAG’s Ngapaeruru-1 site 11 times to monitor compliance during construction and drilling activities, and to take ground and surface water samples with each visit to test the different phases of well activity. Visits and water analysis showed no incidents – essentially giving TAG and the well site a clean bill of health.
TAG’s operating goal is to achieve 100% compliance during all activities of its drilling programs, whether it affects worker or environmental safety, and we thank our team for their care and commitment.
The Council focuses on biosecurity and biodiversity, and “works to identify potential hazards and risks to people, property, infrastructure, environment and the local economy.” The area they oversee:
We continue to analyze the very encouraging drilling data, and our team expects to make a decision on future activities in the coming months.
