New Zealand Petroleum Club

The New Zealand Petroleum Club is a forum for upstream operators and energy organisations with operations in New Zealand.

Operators, explorers, service companies, rig owners and key infrastructure providers use the forum to discuss upcoming activity and share information for mutual benefit and the advancement of the industry and energy in New Zealand.


Scope of the club

The purpose of the NZPC is to share information for the purposes of co-ordinating resource sharing and farm-in opportunities for the benefit of all parties for future operations.
