Tap Oil Completes Sale of Tap (Harriet) Pty Ltd

Tap Oil announced that it has completed the sale of its wholly owned subsidiary, Tap (Harriet) Pty Ltd, to a subsidiary of Apache Corporation.

The sale was first announced to the ASX by Tap on 13 February 2012. Tap (Harriet) Pty Ltd holds a 12.2229% interest in the Harriet Joint Venture (HJV) as well as a 10% interest in WA-45-R, WA-46-R and a 20% interest in WA-334-P.
