Our compliance team have been out and about and have completed 69 site inspections in the Canterbury, Otago and Southland areas since we issued our last newsletter.
Thank you to all of the people working on these sites for their help and cooperation explaining their operation to us.
Have you got your annual summary report in to us?
Minerals annual summary reports
This year we expect to receive 948 annual summary reports for minerals permits in total. So far, we have received 89% of the expected returns. By the due date of 31 March, we had received 69% of the expected returns on time, which is up from 64% last year.
If you haven’t filed your annual summary report with us yet you need to do it now. We’re still waiting for about 100 minerals annual summary reports to come in. The details of permit holders who haven’t submitted their reports were passed on to our compliance team at the end of May and these permit holders may face enforcement action.
Petroleum annual summary reports and release of petroleum reserves data
We have received all 60 annual summary reports due in for petroleum permits.
MBIE has now released details of New Zealand’s petroleum reserves as at 1 January 2019.
This information covers oil and gas production profiles, remaining reserves and contingent resources, all by field. More statistics will be included in the Energy in NZ 2019 publication, due to be published in September.
