Company Profile


OMV New Zealand Ltd is one of the country’s largest liquid hydrocarbon producer and a major explorer in search for new resources in Taranaki and the Great Southern Basin.  OMV began operating in New Zealand after acquiring a share in the Maari licence in 1999.

Since then it has grown to a workforce of more than 100 full-time employees with offices in Wellington and New Plymouth, delivering substantial value to its shareholders and to the New Zealand government.

OMV’s New Zealand production is derived from the non-operated interests in Maui and Pohokura and the operated Maari field offshore of the South Taranaki coast.  OMV has developed the Maari field as operator to first production in 2009, invested more than 1.5 billion NZD in New Zealand and contributed over 850 million NZD in royalties and taxes to the state budget in the last 10 years.

OMV is proud of its pioneering spirit, professional offshore expertise and positive relationships with its stakeholders as a reliable and trusted Partner.
