VANCOUVER, BC, Aug. 29, 2023 /CNW/ - TAG Oil Ltd. (TSXV: TAO) (OTCQX: TAOIF) ("TAG Oil" or the "Company") is pleased to report the filing of its financial results for the interim period ending June 30, 2023. A copy of TAG Oil's financial statements and management discussion and analysis for the interim period ending June 30, 2023 are available on SEDAR+ (www.sedarplus.ca) and on the Company's website.
Highlights over the period include that the Company had C$15.5 million (March 31, 2023: C$19.5 million) in cash and cash equivalents and C$17.9 million (March 31, 2023: C$21.6 million) in working capital and has no debt. TAG Oil recently announced the closing of its upsized $11.7 million bought-deal public offering and continues to manage its costs and allocate the necessary resources towards its operations and business development efforts in Egypt and the broader Middle East and North Africa region.
Drilling operations at the Badr Oil Field ("BED-1") in the Western Desert of Egypt of TAG Oil's first horizontal well, BED4-T100 ("T100"), are progressing. The Company has set surface casing at ~1,250 meters and will be drilling out in the next 48 hours or so. The purpose of the T100 well is to target oil in the Abu-Roash "F" unconventional tight, carbonate reservoir in BED-1 at projected total vertical depth of 3,300 meters. The Company will provide detailed drilling and completion updates in due course and anticipates that the T100 well will be completed by calendar Q4 2023.

Statements contained in this news release that are not historical facts are forward-looking statements that involve various risks and uncertainty affecting the business of TAG Oil. All estimates and statements that describe the Company's operations are forward-looking statements under applicable securities laws and necessarily involve risks and uncertainties. Actual results may vary materially from the information provided in this release, and there is no representation by TAG Oil that the actual results realized in the future will be the same in whole or in part as those presented herein. TAG Oil undertakes no obligation, except as otherwise required by law, to update these forward-looking statements if management's beliefs, estimates or opinions, or other factors change.
Exploration for hydrocarbons is a speculative venture necessarily involving substantial risk. The Company's future success in exploiting and increasing its current resource base will depend on its ability to develop its current properties and on its ability to discover and acquire properties or prospects that are capable of commercial production. However, there is no assurance that the Company's future exploration and development efforts will result in the discovery or development of additional commercial accumulations of oil and natural gas. In addition, even if further hydrocarbons are discovered, the costs of extracting and delivering the hydrocarbons to market and variations in the market price may render uneconomic any discovered deposit. Geological conditions are variable and unpredictable. Even if production is commenced from a well, the quantity of hydrocarbons produced inevitably will decline over time, and production may be adversely affected or may have to be terminated altogether if the Company encounters unforeseen geological conditions. The Company is subject to uncertainties related to the proximity of any resources that it may discover to pipelines and processing facilities. It expects that its operational costs will increase proportionally to the remoteness of, and any restrictions on access to, the properties on which any such resources may be found. Adverse climatic conditions at such properties may also hinder the Company's ability to carry on exploration or production activities continuously throughout any given year.
This press release includes cumulative production rates for a certain well over short period of time. Short term production rates are preliminary, subject to a high degree of predictive uncertainty, and not determinative of the rates at which those or other wells will continue to produce and thereafter decline. Short term test rates are not necessarily indicative of long-term well or reservoir performance or of ultimate recovery. Production over a longer period will experience natural declines, which can be high and may not be consistent over a longer period. Actual results will differ from those realized during an initial production period and the differences may be material.
References to "oil" in this press release include crude oil and field condensate.
