The project has been drilled by L&M Energy (LME), a New Zealand based energy company.[1]

As for early 2012 NZ$3.4 million has been spent on the project.[2] In October 2012 LME reported that at the OM#5 test well "production rates to date are lower than modelled and the latest work‐over programme is aimed at determining the variances between actual and modelled production rates."[3]
