Report summary

A 37% upgrade in New Zealand’s gas reserves has pushed an anticipated shortfall from 2018 to 2022, buying the country valuable time to make decisions about its future energy strategy. However, a gas supply deficit still looms for New Zealand unless additional supplies can be realised. Recent exploration has been disappointing and LNG imports have been discussed as being an alternative to domestic production, but the increase in the cost of gas could damage the industrial sector.
