TAG Oil Ltd.
TAG Oil Ltd. (http://www.tagoil.com/) is a Canadian-based production and exploration company with operations
focused exclusively in New Zealand. With 100% control over all its core
assets, including oil and gas production infrastructure, TAG is
anticipating substantial oil and gas production and reserve growth
through development of several light oil and gas discoveries. TAG is
also actively drilling high-impact exploration prospects identified
across 3,500 sections of land onshore in the lightly explored Taranaki
and East Coast Basins of New Zealand's North Island.
In the East Coast Basin, TAG Oil has demonstrated and is pursuing the
significant unconventional resource potential estimated in the
fractured shale source-rock formations that are widespread over the
Company's acreage. These oil-rich, naturally fractured and thermally
mature source-rock formations have many similarities to North America's
Bakken Shale source-rock formation in the successful Williston Basin.
