TAG is also pleased to report that oil and gas production from its core Taranaki Basin oil field development area has remained steady with average daily gross production for the month of December at 1,625 BOE/d, having recently reached as high as 1,865 BOE/d (75% oil). This illustrates that despite ongoing uncertainty in commodity prices, TAG has managed to continue to further the development of its core producing acreage. Cash flow from these operations allows TAG to maintain its strategic vision by being able to make acquisitions and diligently undertake exploration activities when it is suitable.

Toby Pierce, TAG Oil's CEO commented, "We are now finished with our workover program and are seeing increased production out of Cheal. The production increases have exceeded management's initial expectations. For the remainder of the year, we will continue to focus on lowering our costs and are now preparing a reduced capital budget for our fiscal 2017 program."

TAG Oil has adopted the standard of six thousand cubic feet of gas to equal one barrel of oil when converting natural gas to "BOEs." BOEs may be misleading, particularly if used in isolation. A BOE conversion ratio of 6Mcf: 1 Bbl is based on an energy equivalency conversion method primarily applicable at the burner tip and does not represent a value equivalency at the wellhead.
