    HOMEX - Perth


    At 0600 hrs, 12 July 2002, the well was pulling out of the hole after
    cleaning out the open hole section, to 4428 meters, conditioning and
    circulating the hole in preparation for the open hole drill stem test
    of the Kapuni sandstones. Thedrill stem-test (DST) tools will then be
    run into the hole to test the 4370-4428 meter open hole interval. The
    results of the DST should be available in 2 to 3 days.

    The objectives of the forward testing program will be to evaluate the
    production characteristics, reservoir quality and nature of the
    hydrocarbons and formation fluids in the Kapuni formation sandstones
    and the extensive fractures within the Murihiku Group metasediments.

    As reported previously, strong mud gasshows commenced at 3828m, and
    further strong gas shows with associated live oil shows were recorded
    over a 237 meter gross interval while drilling from 4263m down to the
    current total depth of 4500 metres. The top of the Kapuni Group is
    interpreted from drilling data at 4378 metres.

    Hydrocarbons are produced at commercial rates from Kapuni sandstone
    reservoirs as well as the Tariki sandstones in the Taranaki basin.
    Internationally, and within Australia, many large commercial oil and
    gas fields produce from fractured reservoirs.

    PEP 38716 hosts all or part of three structures related to the
    eastern bounding fault of the Taranaki Basin, all being similar to
    that of the major Rimu/Kauri oil and gas discovery 18 kilometres
    south which is currently under development. The structures are named
    Huinga and Huinga South, both entirely within the Permit, and Makino,
    which is partly within the Permit but mostly within PEP38728, which
    adjoins to the south.

    Huinga 1B commenced re-entry: 8 April 2002.

    Location of well: NZMG: 2 631 910.93 mE.
    6 205 424.34 mN.

    Operation since last report: RIH with bit to clean and
    circulate hole; POOH.

    Drilling Rig: Parker Rig - 188.

    Proposed Total Depth: 4,500 metres - subject to

    Primary Objectives: Fracture zones within the Murihiku

    Sandstones units of the Kapuni

    Last hydrocarbon indications: Samples of waxy crude and strong
    gas shows recorded at surface
    while drilling and circulating
    the hole prior to logging.
