The contract for the lease and operations of the FPSO offshore New Zealand has been extended for one year. The firm period has been extended to Q4 2019 (from Q4 2018).

The FPSO is operating on the Tui field offshore New Zealand. The FPSO has been operating at the field since 2007.

The Tui Area Oil Project constitutes three fields, Tui, Amokura, and Pateke, which started production on July 30, 2007, and produce from four horizontal wells flowing to a permanently moored FPSO, the Umuroa. The oil is processed on the Umuroa before being exported via export tankers destined for refineries on Australia’s eastern seaboard. The FPSO has a storage capacity of 700,000 barrels of stabilized crude oil.

The Tui area was previously operated by AWE until Tamarind took over operatorship in March 2017.
