Taranaki Community Update: Mangahewa News – December 2019

As we approach the end of 2019, I want to take the opportunity to say thank you to you all – our neighbours and community members – for your patience and support throughout the year.

It has been a busy year for Todd Energy, with the completion of the Mangahewa G drilling campaign and stimulation activity in North Taranaki. Other work included the track and bridge for the new Kapuni J site, and we really appreciated the support from neighbours, landowners and the surrounding communities in both North and South Taranaki throughout the year.

Todd will have no field construction over the Christmas and New Year period, from Saturday 21 December 2019 through to Monday 6 January 2020.

Looking ahead to the New Year, we’re planning for 2020 to be a busy year for Todd Energy as we continue with Kapuni J wellsite development. Stage 2 of our Kapuni J wellsite activity will involve the construction of the wellsite itself, along with the pipelines, the rig camp area, and wellsite facilities.

In addition to the stories inside this newsletter, I wanted to share one of our most recent new community partnerships, which is our support for Tikorangi School’s new literacy programme. It is great to see such a fantastic learning programme supporting the children in the local community, and we look forward to sharing more on this with you next year once the programme is well underway.

Finally, thank you to those of you who came to our Kapuni Christmas community meeting in November, and I look forward to seeing those of you who attend our Tikorangi meeting on 12 December. As a reminder, if you have any questions or concerns, please don’t hesitate to contact our Community team on 0800 001 007.

Wishing you and your families a safe and enjoyable Christmas and holiday period.

Kind regards
