TAG Oil has announced initial production test results on its BED4-T100 horizontal well, which tested at 800 barrels of oil per day. The T100 well has demonstrated encouraging results following a multi-stage hydraulic fracture stimulation targeting the Abu-Roash 'F' ('ARF') tight carbonate reservoir in the Badr Oil Field ('BED-1') in the Western Desert of Egypt.

During the clean-up phase post-stimulation, the T100 well flowed at rates exceeding 1,000 barrels of fluid per day. By the conclusion of the production test, the water-cut had decreased to below 30%, indicating favorable reservoir characteristics and effective well stimulation techniques. During flowback, the oil production rates ranged between 400 and 800 BOPD as the well unloaded. The well will continue to be unloaded under natural flow for another two to three weeks until an artificial lift system and surface facilities are installed. The well has recovered approximately 23% of the frac load water and has produced over 4,500 barrels of oil to date.

Mr. Toby Pierce, TAG Oil’s Chief Executive Officer, commented 'We are pleased with the performance of our first well in the ARF resource play despite encountering drilling challenges resulting in a shorter lateral section of 308 meters. Looking ahead, TAG Oil plans to drill horizontal wells with lateral lengths of up to 1,000 meters, accompanied by three times the fracture stimulation stages. This longer lateral approach lays the groundwork for scaling production growth. Success of the T100 well is an important step to unlock the potential of this significant resource play and planning is underway to develop the 500 million barrels of oil in place in the ARF.'

A further well production update will be provided in due course and will also detail plans for tie-in and facilities configuration after stabilized production volumes have been established.
