New Zealand Energy Corp Announces Third Quarter 2019 Results

Wellington, New Zealand--(Newsfile Corp. - November 28, 2019) - New Zealand Energy Corp. (TSXV: NZ) ("NZEC" or the "Company") announced today it has filed with Canadian regulatory authorities its third quarter 2019 financial results and management discussion and analysis, which documents are available on the Company's website at www.newzealandenergy.com and on SEDAR at www.sedar.com.

Commenting on the Company's third quarter 2019 results, Chairman James Willis said "The results saw a loss of $191,045 in part attributable to non cash expenses. There was a small ($87,621) increase in cash ($991,935 was held at the end of the quarter) with modest development expenditure ($96,819) paid in the quarter offset by the proceeds from the sale of equipment. Production was down as a result of a hole identified in the tubing in Ngaere-1, above the Electric Submersible Pump. Once Ngaere-1 is repaired we expect to see the well returning to full production with an increasing oil rate and oil cut.The Copper Moki wells continue to perform well, with regular condensate flushes removing wax and sand disposition and increasing productivity.

Cash provided by operating activities, for the quarter, was $163,674 (2018: $856,649). The net loss for the quarter was $191,045 (2018: $48,051) with one factor being $421,427 in non-cash depreciation, depletion and accretion (2018: $503,621). The Company achieved average net daily production of ~194 boe/d (97% oil) through Q3.
