New Zealand Energy Corp. has initiated an extended production test of its Copper Moki-2 (CM-2) well and commenced drilling Copper Moki-3 (CM-3), its third well in the Taranaki Basin of New Zealand’s North Island.
The company has also entered into a farm-in agreement with L&M Energy Limited and will subsequently earn an additional 15% in the Alton Permit, increasing NZEC’s interest to 65%.
The CM-2 well commenced flowing on February 15 and is currently flowing at a rate of 1,000 barrels of oil per day and 820 thousand cubic feet of natural gas per day.
NZEC has commenced drilling CM-3, with the expectation of releasing well results by the end of March 2012. CM-3 will be NZEC’s first well to target the deeper Moki formation, and the company will collect information from both the Urenui and Mt. Messenger formations as CM-3 drilling proceeds. Immediately following the conclusion of CM-3 drilling, NZEC anticipates commencing drilling of the Copper-Moki-4 well from the same drilling pad.
