Oil & Gas

Oil and Gas
I have advised central government agencies, industry and investment fund managers on oil and gas exploration and development on land and at sea.

I have strong working relationships with leading international engineering and environmental consultancies that specialise in upstream exploration and production.

A renewed market focus is offshore production, and I am actively involved in advising on offshore exploration and development.

Some of my recent work includes:

  • Delivering national seminars for the New Zealand Law Society on exploration and development within the EEZ – offshore oil and gas, March 2014.
  • Chairing panel discussion on Regions and Environment at New Zealand Petroleum Summit, Wellington, September 2013.
  • Chairing plenary session on Deep-Sea Oil at Resource Management Law Association National Conference, September 2012
  • Advising the Environmental Protection Authority on the regulation of exploration and development within New Zealand’s EEZ.
