Production from MNA-15 is expected to begin in the last week of this month, while MNA-16 is scheduled to start production during the first week of May 2016.

Tap Oil plans to review these reserves and contingent resources following development drilling and production performance.

In April 2015, Mubadala completed drilling of all 11 Manora development wells in the Northern Gulf of Thailand.
