Good morning.

As Minister of Energy and Resources, it’s my pleasure to welcome and host you here, in Parliament, this morning to award permits for the Government’s Block Offer 2014.

We are here today because New Zealand has a petroleum potential that needs to be better understood. 

The oil and gas industry is already a vital part of the New Zealand economy.  Oil is our fourth largest commodity export after dairy, meat and wood, and oil and gas combined contribute more than $2.7 billion to GDP each year.
