New Zealand Energy Corp. (NZEC) is a publicly-traded company (TSX-V: NZ, OTCQX: NZERF) focused on the production, development and exploration of oil and natural gas prospects in New Zealand. NZEC controls 1.15 million acres of land across six permits, comprising one of the largest onshore exploration portfolios on New Zealand's north island. The properties offer significant production potential with reserves estimated at 1.2 million barrels of oil net to NZEC, and significant additional resources. In October 2013 the Company completed an acquisition of strategic upstream and midstream assets that expanded its portfolio with a full-cycle production facility and three new petroleum mining licenses with independently confirmed reserves and resources.
NZEC was formed in 2010 to pursue new opportunities for energy exploration resulting from the New Zealand government's growing encouragement of energy exploration. The Company drilled its first discovery well in August 2011 in the Taranaki Basin and is currently producing high-quality light oil from 11 wells, with additional production pending from the new petroleum licenses and further exploration and development planned for 2014. On the East Coast Basin of the north island, NZEC holds a 100% interest in an onshore exploration permit covering more than 1 million acres, giving NZEC a significant footprint from which to unlock the potential of New Zealand's unconventional oil shale formations.
