PROPERTY REVIEW & OUTLOOK
Within the Taranaki Basin, NZEC holds a 100% interest in the Eltham Permit, a 65% interest in the Alton Permit with L&M Energy ("L&M"), and a 50% interest in the TWN Licenses and the TWN Assets with L&M. The Company has lodged an application with New Zealand Petroleum & Minerals to convert a portion of the Eltham Permit into a Petroleum Mining Permit, comprising the area surrounding the Copper Moki and Waitapu oil discoveries. The Taranaki Basin offers production potential from multiple prospective formations, ranging from the Kapuni sandstones at a depth of approximately 4,000 metres, the Tikorangi limestones at approximately 3,000 metres, the Moki sandstones at approximately 2,500 metres, and the shallower Mt. Messenger and Urenui sandstones at approximately 2,000 metres. All of NZEC's production to date is from the Tikorangi and Mt. Messenger formations.
Production and Processing Revenue
To date the Company the Company has advanced 12 wells to production: four wells on the Eltham Permit and eight wells on the TWN Licenses. Total corporate production during the first quarter of 2014 averaged 219 bbl/d net to NZEC (not including production from the Waihapa-8 well). On March 29, 2014 the Waihapa-8 well commenced production, on April 12, 2014 the Toko-2B well recommenced production following installation of high-volume lift, and on April 17, 2014 the Waihapa-2 well commenced production following a successful uphole completion. Production from Toko-2B, Ngaere-2 and Ngaere-3 is combined into one single gathering pipeline that goes through the B-train separator at the Waihapa Production Station. Ngaere-2 and Ngaere-3 were taken offline on April 12, 2014 in order to allow for full evaluation of Toko-2B's production performance. Total corporate production during April 2014 averaged 228 bbl/d net to NZEC. Ngaere-2 and Ngaere-3 resumed production on May 4, 2014, while the Toko-2B well was shut-in to allow for installation of a permanent power source. Toko-2B resumed production on May 19, 2014. The Waihapa-2 well produced for eight days during May and is currently shut-in awaiting evaluation and installation of an alternative artificial lift method. The Copper Moki-3 well has been shut-in since early March awaiting installation of a new pump. Total corporate production during May 2014 averaged 201 bbl/d net to NZEC.
NZEC and L&M acquired the TWN Licenses on October 28, 2013 and formed the TWN Joint Arrangement ("TWN JA"), with NZEC as the operator, to explore and develop the TWN Licenses and operate the Waihapa Production Station and associated infrastructure. To date, the TWN JA has advanced eight wells to production for a total of 42,620 bbl produced since closing of the TWN Acquisition (21,310 bbl net to NZEC), with cumulative pre-tax oil sales net to NZEC of approximately $2,324,833. The wells produce light approx. 41 degrees API oil that is delivered by pipeline to the Waihapa Production Station and then piped to the Shell-operated Omata tank farm, where it is sold at Brent pricing less standard Shell costs.
Following closing of the TWN Acquisition, the TWN JA immediately proceeded with the work required to reactivate oil production from the Tikorangi Formation in six wells drilled by previous operators. On December 2, 2013, NZEC announced that all six wells had been reactivated and were flowing into the Waihapa Production Station. In March 2014, the TWN JA also reactivated oil production from the Mt. Messenger Formation in a well that had been drilled and produced from the Mt. Messenger Formation by a previous operator (Waihapa-8). The Waihapa-8 well produced an average of 20 bbl/d (10 bbl/d net to NZEC) over the last two weeks of May. The TWN JA is evaluating alternative methods of artificial lift that could produce the well more effectively than the current heated gas lift.
The TWN JA continues to evaluate and optimize production from the reactivated wells. As part of the optimization process, in April 2014, the TWN JA installed high-volume lift ("ESP") on one of the reactivated wells (Toko-2B). Toko-2B was chosen as the first well for ESP installation because the well had a high oil cut of approximately 20%, but had to be shut-in every few days to allow the Company to unload a water column that would build up in the well. The TWN JA expected that an ESP would allow the well to be produced continuously and would maximize oil recovery. The ESP was operated initially using a portable generator, which limited the pumping capacity and did not adequately draw down fluid levels in the well. In May 2014 the TWN JA connected the Toko-2B high-volume lift to a permanent power source and is gradually increase the pumping rate. The Toko-2B well has produced an average of 10 bbl/d (5 bbl/d net to NZEC) over the last five days, with the ESP pumping at a rate of 2,500 bbl/d. Current pumping rates are still not sufficiently drawing down fluid in the well, as evidenced by the oil cut of 1.2%, which is lower than expected. The TWN JA is hopeful that higher pumping rates will draw down fluid levels in the well and allow the oil cut to increase, and is steadily increasing pumping rates with the expectation of ramping up to 8,000-10,000 bbl/d by June 2, 2014.
A number of wells on the TWN Licenses, with previous production from the Tikorangi Formation, have uphole completion potential in the shallower Mt. Messenger Formation. The TWN JA has recompleted one well uphole in the Mt. Messenger Formation (Waihapa-2) and achieved production from that well in April 2014. This successful recompletion confirms that production can be achieved from an uphole reservoir. The Waihapa-2 well had produced an average of 120 bbl/d (60 bbl/d net to NZEC) over a period of eight days in May with an oil cut of approximately 67%. The presence of sand is not uncommon in the Miocene Formation, and the downhole pump is designed to handle some sand. The inflow of water and oil into the well, however, is drawing in volumes of sand that make the current artificial lift ineffective. The TWN JA is evaluating alternative methods of artificial lift which could service both the Waihapa-8 and Waihapa-2 wells.
The TWN JA continues to review well logs, historical drilling records and seismic data across the TWN Licenses to identify additional opportunities to advance existing wells to production. The TWN JA has identified four additional production opportunities in existing wells on the TWN Licenses: three uphole completions in the Mt. Messenger Formation and one well that offers production potential from both a Tikorangi reactivation and a Mt. Messenger uphole completion. The TWN JA will continue to evaluate these opportunities with the objective of advancing these wells to production.
Third-party revenue from the Waihapa Production Station since closing the TWN Acquisition totals approximately NZ$979,704 to NZEC. In addition, during February 2014, the TWN JA entered into an agreement with a gas marketing counterparty to transport gas along a section of the TAW gas pipeline for a term of four years with a five-year right of renewal. The arrangement is expected to generate between NZ$250,000 and NZ$1 million revenue per year (net to NZEC). First gas commenced flowing on May 5, 2014, with revenue to be received from the counterparty from July 1, 2014. From May 5 to July 1, the counterparty will pay all reasonable direct costs and charges incurred by the Company with regards to this arrangement.
The Company has drilled ten exploration wells on its 100%-owned Eltham Permit. Four have been advanced to production. Of the ten wells drilled on the Eltham Permit, only one well (Wairere-1) failed to encounter hydrocarbons and was immediately sidetracked. One well (Copper Moki-4) made an oil discovery in the Urenui Formation and has been shut-in pending additional economic analysis and evaluation of artificial lift options. Wairere-1A was drilled to the Mt. Messenger Formation and encountered hydrocarbon shows, with completion pending. Arakamu-2 made an oil discovery in the Mt. Messenger Formation and has been shut-in pending evaluation of artificial lift options. Waitapu-1 is shut-in pending further testing or sidetrack to an alternate target and Arakamu-1A, a Moki Formation well, is suspending pending further evaluation. The Company continues to assess and reprioritize these Eltham Permit opportunities as new reservoir data becomes available from the Company's activities on the TWN Licenses.
To date the Company has produced approximately 260,879 bbl from its Eltham Permit wells (including oil produced during testing), with cumulative pre-tax oil sales from inception of approximately $28.3 million). All of the Eltham Permit wells produce light approx. 41 degrees API oil from the Mt. Messenger Formation. Oil is trucked to the Shell-operated Omata tank farm and sold at Brent pricing less standard Shell costs. Production from the Eltham wells has been very stable year to date, averaging 108 bbl/d during the first quarter of 2014, and 131 bbl/d during May 2014. The Waitapu-2 well recommenced production on March 6, 2014 following installation of artificial lift. The Copper Moki-3 well was shut-in during early March 2014, and is expected to resume production in Q2-2014 following installation of a new pump.
NZEC is actively seeking farm-in partnerships to allow the Company to accelerate exploration of additional high-priority drill targets on the Eltham Permit.
During 2014, the Company plans to drill a new exploration well on the Alton Permit. The current work program for the Alton Permit requires the Company to drill an exploration well by November 22, 2014. The Company has identified a drill target in the Mt. Messenger Formation and has initiated the community engagement and technical assessments required to obtain land access consents and permits. NZEC is actively seeking farm-in partnerships to allow the Company to accelerate exploration of additional high-priority drill targets on the Alton Permit.
East Coast Basin
Within the East Coast Basin, NZEC is the operator of three permits, with a 100% interest in the Castlepoint Permit, a 100% interest in the East Cape Permit, and an 80% working interest in the Wairoa Permit in a joint arrangement with Westech Energy New Zealand. The Company is actively seeking a farm-in partner for its East Coast permits, to participate in and fund exploration and development in the East Coast Basin in return for an interest in the permits. The Company has received an extension to its drilling commitment on the Castlepoint Permit, and is currently required to drill its first exploration well on this permit by November 23, 2014. The Company has identified its preferred drill location and has initiated the community engagement and technical assessments required to obtain land access and resource consents. The current work program for the Wairoa Permit requires the Company to drill an exploration well by July 2, 2014. The Company has identified the preferred drill location and has progressed the community engagement and technical assessments required to obtain land access and resource consents. The Company applied for but has been unable to obtain an extension to the work program commitment, and is considering relinquishing the Wairoa Permit. The Company anticipates completing fieldwork and geochemical studies on the East Cape Permit in 2014.

RESULTS OF OPERATIONS FOR THE THREE-MONTH PERIOD ENDED MARCH 31, 2014
During the three-month period ended March 31, 2014, the Company produced 19,682 bbl (2013: 30,179 bbl) of oil and sold 17,630 bbl (2013: 27,246 bbl) for total oil sales of $2,100,545 (2013: $3,061,064), or $62.33 per bbl (2013: $112.35). Reduced production compared to the same period in 2013 is the result of production declines in the Copper Moki wells, which is to be anticipated in oil wells. Production from the Copper Moki wells has since stabilized.
During the three-month period ended March 31, 2014, the Company recorded sales from purchased oil and condensate of $2,588,219 and $1,491,358, respectively (2013: $nil and $nil). The Company also received $362,459 (2013: $nil) of processing revenue from the Company's interest in the Waihapa Production Station.
Total recorded revenue during the three-month period ended March 31, 2014 was $1,878,912 (2013: $2,925,258), which is accounted for net of royalties of $221,633 (2013: $135,806).
Expenses and Other Items
Production costs related to oil sales during the three-month period ended March 31, 2014 totalled $780,115 (2013: $1,691,405) or $44.25 per bbl (2013: $62.08). The decrease in production costs in Q1-2014 compared to Q1-2013 was from cost efficiencies due to the installation of production facilities on the Copper Moki site. Other costs of $4,079,577 are for costs directly related to the sale of purchased oil and condensate. During the three-month period ended March 31, 2014, fixed operating costs represented approximately 74% of total production costs, giving rise to higher field netbacks in light of reduced production cost compared to Q1-2013.
Processing costs of $294,622 (2013: $nil) relate to direct costs associated with the operations of the TWN Assets.
Depreciation costs incurred during the three-month period ended March 31, 2014 totalled $829,446 (2013: $867,042), or $37.45 per bbl of oil sold (2013: $31.82). Depreciation is calculated using the unit-of-production method by reference to the ratio of production in the period to the related total proved and probable reserves of oil and natural gas, taking into account estimated future development costs necessary to access those reserves.
Stock-based compensation for the three-month period ended March 31, 2014 resulted in an expense of $249,620 (2013: $580,017). The decrease is because the Company granted fewer share purchase options to employees, directors and officers of the Company.
General and administrative expenses for the three-month period ended March 31, 2014 totalled $1,823,498 (2013: $1,682,505). The increase in general and administrative costs corresponds to an increase in travel and insurance in connection with the TWN licenses. General and administrative expenses are net of legal fee rebates received in the amount of $249,444.
Net finance expense for the three-month period ended March 31, 2014 totalled $69,854 (2013: $17,887). Finance expense relates accretion of the Company's asset retirement obligations, presented net of interest earned on the Company's cash and cash-equivalent balances held in treasury and on term deposits. During the quarter ended March 31, 2014, the Company incurred more accretion expense due to an increase in asset retirement obligations incurred from the acquisition of the TWN Licenses and TWN Assets.
Foreign exchange loss for the three-month period March 31, 2014 amounted to $216,939 (2013: $316,338). The foreign exchange loss incurred in the current period is a result of the strengthening of the New Zealand dollar against the US dollar, during a period in which the Company's subsidiaries (which have a New Zealand dollar functional currency) held US dollar denominated assets and working capital.
Total Comprehensive Income / Loss
Total comprehensive income for the three-month period ended March 31, 2014 totalled $8,452,444 after taking into account a foreign translation reserve gain of $10,475,166 on the translation of foreign operations and monetary items that form part of NZEC's net investment in foreign operations. Total comprehensive loss for the three-month period ended March 31, 2013 was $1,313,397.
Based on a weighted average shares outstanding balance of 170,873,459, the Company realized a $0.01 basic and diluted loss per share for the three-month period ended March 31, 2014. During the three-month period ended March 31, 2013, the Company realized a $0.02 basic and diluted loss per share, based on a weighted average share balance of 121,933,549.
