We’re taking some well-deserved time off to enjoy our warm winter holidays (a nice benefit to being in New Zealand). See you in 2011!

We just completed the acquisition of a 20% interest in offshore PEP 52181, just 8 km from shore, operated by ROC Oil.

The Permit contains the Kaheru Prospect, a Miocene-aged prospect on the same successful thrust belt play fairway as many significant Taranaki oil and gas fields, including: Rimu, Kauri, Manutahi immediately north, and the Tariki, Ahuroa, Waihapa and Ngaere (“TAWN”) fields further north. Immediately to the west, the large Kupe Gas-Condensate field is now also in full production. All in all, a good addition to our prospect portfolio.

Between Cheal-BH-1 testing strong and hitting the highest daily oil and gas production volume in Cheal’s history due to workover operations, we’re having a pretty good month. Plus it’s summer down here……
