“We are pleased with the operator’s progress on the drilling,” said Troy Hayden, managing director and CEO of joint venture partner Tap Oil.

“The last of the critical systems should be handed over to operations by the end of the week, with production now scheduled to commence by mid-November. Despite this, the operator has advised peak production remains on track to be achieved in the first quarter of 2015 due to the progress of the development drilling”.

It is now expected that production will commence from all three wells (MNA-01, MNA-02 and MNA-03), resulting in a higher initial rate than forecast with two wells.

Completion on MNA-05 has now commenced.

Platform commissioning at Manora is well underway with hook up and commissioning nearing completion.

Mubadala Petroleum has advised production is now expected to commence by mid- November.
