Block Offer 2013
Between 8 November 2012 and 30 January 2013, New Zealand Petroleum and Minerals consulted with 74 iwi organisations and 42 local authorities on Block Offer 2013
Thirty submissions were received - 15 from iwi and 15 from councils. The consultation identified sensitive sites in two blocks on the East Coast. Sections of these blocks were removed from the final tender.
In December 2013, Energy and Resources Minister Simon Bridges announced ten petroleum exploration permits for Block Offer 2013.
The permits included five onshore permits, in Taranaki and the East Coast, and five offshore permits in the Reinga-Northland basin, Offshore Taranaki, and Great South Basin (South-Canterbury).
