A risk managed, high-impact opportunity

Undiscovered resource opportunity

TAG Oil is firmly positioned in Australia, which is regarded by the industry as one of the world’s few politically stable, untapped oil and gas frontiers.  TAG is at the forefront of this rich resource opportunity by effectively positioning the Company through advanced-stage exploration acquisitions, providing a strong forward growth platform for years to come. Prospect-rich, high-impact exploration acreage in proven prolific discovery trends and a solid balance sheet, form the foundation from which our successes will continue to grow.

* Reserves Footnote

BOEs: TAG Oil has adopted the standard of six thousand cubic feet of gas to equal one barrel of oil when converting natural gas to “BOEs.” BOEs may be misleading, particularly if used in isolation. A BOE conversion ratio of 6Mcf: 1 Bbl is based on an energy equivalency conversion method primarily applicable at the burner tip and does not represent a value equivalency at the wellhead.

Undiscovered Hydrocarbon-In-Place (equivalent to undiscovered resources) is that quantity of petroleum that is estimated, on a given date, to be contained in accumulations yet to be discovered. There is no certainty that any portion of the undiscovered resources will be discovered or that, if discovered, it will be economically viable or technically feasible to produce.

Taranaki contingent resources were estimated by Drew Cadenhead, a full-time employee of TAG Oil Ltd., who is a qualified reserves evaluator in accordance with National Instrument 51-101.
