Taranaki Community Update: Mangahewa News – March 2020

Welcome to the first Todd Energy community update for 2020. It was fantastic to see some of the performers from our 2019 Todd Energy WOMAD Community Programme back on stage at the Waitangi Day celebrations at Puke Ariki Landing. The group came together to re-perform Free to Roam, a song they wrote last year and performed at the opening of WOMAD. It’s a great example of the talented young people we have in Taranaki.

In North Taranaki, our stormwater maintenance project underneath the McKee Mangahewa Production Station is progressing well. The first stage of the project has already been completed, with stages 2 and 3 scheduled to be undertaken over the next few months. I am particularly pleased with the technology being used to repair the stormwater pipes, which has reduced the need for lengthy confined space entry for our team.

In South Taranaki we are continuing to make great progress with our Kapuni J development. Already the pipeline installation is nearing completion, and the wellsite development is tracking to plan. It is scheduled to be completed by May 2020. Once complete, the site will be ready for the installation of site facilities, which are expected to continue through to early 2021. Last month, we also successfully completed a full wellsite and Production Station shutdown. I would like to acknowledge the support and understanding of our neighbours, landowners and the community during this period of increased activity in South Taranaki.

Finally, to those who are planning to enjoy the culture, fun and creativity of WOMAD this year, I hope you all have an enjoyable time and that you make the most of everything WOMAD 2020 has to offer.

As always, if you have any questions or concerns about our operations or activities, please contact the community team on 0800 001 007.

Kind regards
