Block Offer 2013 nominations open
27 July 2012
Nominations for next year’s Block Offer are now underway.
It is the first step in an 18 month process. New Zealand Petroleum & Minerals will consult with iwi and local authorities in late 2012 on the blocks proposed to be included in the 2013 block offer. Permits granted as a result of Block Offer 2013 will be awarded at the end of next year.
Any interested party is invited to nominate areas of exploration interest (block, basin or sub-basin) for possible inclusion in Block Offer 2013, or any future block offer. The focus of the nominations is on prospectivity and nominees are encouraged to provide evidence that demonstrates prospectivity.
Nominations for Block Offer 2013 close 21 September 2012.
