Electric log analysis of these wells indicates high-quality oil pay in the targeted Mt. Messenger and Urenui Formations. A pumping unit is currently being mobilized to the field for extended well testing. The Company is also pleased to announce the spudding of the Cheal-B5 appraisal / development well, which will target the same reservoir horizons.

Cheal C2 Cheal-C2, the first well in TAG's current ten-well Taranaki drilling program, targeted the Mt. Messenger Formation and was drilled to a depth of ~2,130 meters from the Cheal C drilling pad. This well encountered "free oil" and the highest mudlog gas peak ever recorded at Cheal from multiple sandstone intervals. Cheal-C2 was a "step-out" from the Cheal-C1 oil discovery announced on June 6, 2011. For more information on Cheal-C1 discovery please see our June 6, 2011 Press Release.

In addition, TAG has recently completed drilling of the Cheal-A8 well, the second well in the ten-well drilling campaign, which targeted the Urenui Formation from the Cheal A drilling pad. The well was drilled and cased to a depth of ~1,585 meters with "free oil" encountered from multiple sand stone intervals.

Garth Johnson, TAG Oil CEO, commented,"We are very pleased at the results to date in our current Taranaki drilling program with both wells exhibiting what appears to be excellent oil pay in several intervals. We are also undergoing a field optimization project including water flooding and workover / recompletion of existing older wells to enhance the field productivity."

The Cheal oil and gas field, 100%-controlled by TAG Oil, is located in Petroleum Mining Permit 38156 in the onshore Taranaki Basin, New Zealand.

About TAG Oil Ltd
TAG Oil Ltd. ( is a Canadian-based production and exploration company with operations focused exclusively in New Zealand. With 100% control over all its core assets, including oil and gas production infrastructure, TAG is anticipating substantial oil and gas production and reserve growth through development of several light oil and gas discoveries. TAG is also actively drilling high-impact exploration prospects identified across more than 2,600 sections of land in the onshore Taranaki and East Coast Basins of New Zealand's North Island.

In the East Coast Basin, TAG has partnered with Apache Corporation to pursue the significant unconventional resource potential estimated in the fractured shale source-rock formations. These oil-rich and naturally fractured formations have many similarities to North America's Bakken Shale source-rock formation in the successful Williston Basin.

Important Information
"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.
