Drilling of the first East Coast wells is expected to commence in late March/ April 2013, subject to receipt of the necessary consents from regional government. TAG will utilize conventional vertical drilling techniques similar to those used by TAG Oil over many years in its successful Taranaki Basin operations.Mr. Johnson concluded: "It was a pleasure to have had the opportunity to work closely with Apache. Our work together provided important geotechnical and operational related work, which has confirmed our belief in the major potential of this project, and advanced it to drill-ready status. Furthermore, TAG's cash flow and assets have grown dramatically since we first signed the agreement with Apache. So the Company can now fund further drilling operations and exploration activities from a place of strength and greater flexibility."
