Since 1972, the Petroleum Exploration and Production Association of New Zealand (PEPANZ) has been the national body representing the upstream oil and gas exploration and production industry.

PEPANZ represents the major companies that explore for, and produce, New Zealand’s oil and gas resources. The companies currently account for an estimated 95% of petroleum production. In addition, PEPANZ also represents more than 30 associate member companies that provide a wide range of goods and services to the industry.

PEPANZ works with local and central governments to ensure that the country’s regulatory and commercial framework promotes investment and maximises the return to both industry and community from developing New Zealand’s oil and gas resources.

As an Association, PEPANZ also seeks to increase community and government understanding of the upstream petroleum industry and its economic importance to New Zealand.
