The significance of the elevated gas readings will not be known until wireline logs have been run and evaluated.

The Ngapaeruru-1 well has reached intermediate casing point at 977 meters with operations continuing according to the drill plan. The planned total depth of the Ngapaeruru-1 well is approximately 1800 meters and is targeting the naturally fractured Waipawa Black Shale and Whangai source-rocks.

"We've passed a couple of critical drilling challenges successfully in the Ngapaeruru-1 well now, including cementing intermediate casing across the troublesome Weber and Wanstead Formations. TAG can now drill confidently ahead into the Waipawa and Whangai source rock targets." Drew Cadenhead, TAG's C.O.O. commented. "We've had to increase the mud weights considerably as we drill deeper, and we continue to see rising mudlog gas readings, including the oil-indicative C3-C5 factions, which is encouraging. The "oil kitchen" in these source rocks is definitely working below us - it promises to be interesting drilling over the next couple of weeks."

The Ngapaeruru-1 well was spudded on April 22, 2013 and is located in TAG's 100% controlled Petroleum Exploration Permit 38349, located in the East Coast Basin of New Zealand.

About TAG Oil Ltd
TAG Oil Ltd (tagoil.com) is a Canadian-based production and exploration company with operations focused exclusively in New Zealand. With 100% ownership over all its core assets, including extensive oil and gas production infrastructure, TAG is enjoying 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 2,984, 171 net acres of land in New Zealand.

In the East Coast Basin, TAG will explore and potentially develop the major unconventional resource potential believed to exist in the tight oil source-rock formations that are widespread over the Company's acreage. These oil-rich and naturally fractured formations have many similarities to North America's Bakken source-rock formation in the successful Williston Basin.

TAG Oil has adopted the standard of six thousand cubic feet of gas to equal one barrel of oil when converting natural gas to “BOE's”. 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.
