A forum for upstream oil and gas operators with operations in New Zealand.
Operators, explorers, service companies, rig owners and key infrastructure providers use the forum to discuss upcoming activity and share information for mutual benefit and the advancement of the industry in New Zealand.
The New Zealand Petroleum Club (NZPC) also administers the Offshore and Onshore Operators' Forum. Meeting minutes and a spreadsheet of upcoming drilling plans and rig availability are sent to key personnel.
Scope of the club
The purpose of the NZPC is to share information for the purposes of co-ordinating resource sharing and farming opportunities for the benefit of all parties for future operations.
It is intended that the exchange of information would be fair and equitable among all participants. NZPC is a meeting of members to exchange views and full participation is actively encouraged.

Scout Check or Club?
The New Zealand Petroleum Club is not a scout check strictly speaking and participants are not expected to provide detailed drilling reports nor will they receive the same. The expectation is that an activity review of each participating company will highlight current operations, upcoming plans and other industry wide knowledge sharing useful for the larger group.
