TAG Oil Blog

Oil and gas drilling and production brought to life

Posted by Denise della Santina on Apr 13, 2014 6:34:00 AM

We realize that we post a lot of pictures of our oil and gas permit sites here on the blog, and write press releases about our drilling process, the status of different exploration sites, production numbers, and estimated potential. Further, we talk a fair bit about how we use the safest, most environmentally conscious techniques, many of which we’re the first to bring to New Zealand.

But talking about it isn’t the same as showing it. 

So talented New Zealand video firm buildmedia recently put together a few videos that bring TAG Oil’s work to life. This first one is particularly exciting, as it shows TAG’s process from scoping to siting to drilling to production, all within the context of the actual landscape…above ground and below!

Over the next few weeks, we’ll release the other two videos, which you’ll also find posted to our website. Hopefully, you’ll enjoy and learn simultaneously. As buildmedia’s tagline says, “seeing is believing.”

Forging relationships in the Asia Pacific

Thanks to all of you who dropped by the TAG Oil booth at the Hong Kong Mines and Money conference last week. IR Director Seth Kay and Exploration Geologist David Loretto reported that the gathering was energizing and informative, with speakers and attendees from around the world.

“Being one of the few oil and gas exploration and production companies exhibiting at the mining conference, we definitely stood out and attracted a lot of attention," said Seth Kay. "This was a great step in raising awareness and increasing our exposure in this part of the world. As a result, TAG Oil is starting to generate more interest from the Asian investment community, and we’ve established some valuable relationships to explore going forward.”

What did people find to be so compelling about TAG? "With very strong fundamentals, an ambitious exploration campaign underway, potentially major near-term catalysts, and a share price currently trading near four-year lows, this is the time to get TAG Oil’s story out in front of as many people as possible.”
