Following a rigorous judging process, TAG Oil was delighted to be a finalist in the prestigious Deloitte Energy Excellence Awards, as one of just four companies in the Overall Energy Company of the Year category.
Chairman of the Judging Panel Richard Westlake said the caliber of entries was extremely high and the finalist selection process had been a tough one. The finalists were:
- Meridian Energy
- TAG Oil
- Shell New Zealand
- Mighty River Power
Although TAG Oil was edged out by global “supermajor” Shell (Shell New Zealand), we got great feedback and support, and are pleased with what we’ve accomplished in New Zealand to date. Said Judge Westlake, "The judging panel was impressed by the depth and quality of the entries and our task certainly hasn't been easy. Some of the entries this year were the best the panel has seen."

Now in their fifth year, the Excellence Awards provide an opportunity to recognize excellence and achievement across the electricity, oil, gas and petroleum industries.
“Whether it’s providing New Zealand homes and businesses with a reliable energy supply or exploring the country’s underdeveloped resources, this sector provides exciting opportunities for innovation and investment.
The Deloitte Energy Excellence Awards have been formed to recognise and celebrate excellence across the many disciplines that comprise the sector. “
