A report for PEPANZ.

The Petroleum Exploration and Production Association of New Zealand (PEPANZ) commissioned NZIER to estimate the macroeconomic and regional economic impacts of the Government decision to ban the granting of new oil and gas exploration permits outside onshore Taranaki. This ban was given effect through the Crown Minerals (Petroleum) Amendment Act 2018.
