Report summary

The asset report for the New Zealand Great South exploration basin has been archived. This is because little Texploration has occurred since the last update (December 2015) and in fact no exploration drilling has taken place in the basin since 1983. In addition, future activity is forecasted to be minimal due to New Zealand government's recent ban of future exploration licensing. A comprehensive update of this basin report will be carried out if and when activity necessitates it. However, should the basin be of interest to you, please contact us using the analyst details linked to this report and we will share Wood Mackenzie’s latest views and information.
