Upstream - New Zealand

New Zealand

Anadarko’s advanced exploratory program in New Zealand is rooted in science and open stakeholder engagement. 

Our Growing Presence in New Zealand

Anadarko has been actively exploring in New Zealand since 2008, with offshore acreage primarily located in the Canterbury Basin. In 2011, we opened an office in Wellington, which focuses on stakeholder engagement and community relations.

Exploratory Studies and Future Drilling Opportunities

In 2014, Anadarko drilled two exploration wells: one in the Deepwater Taranaki Basin and one in the Canterbury Basin. The company continues to evaluate the science and future opportunities.

“Having established strong and positive relationships at the national and community levels, as well as among the ‘iwi’ or indigenous community, Anadarko is building its knowledge and understanding of New Zealand’s deepwater environment and geology as it continues to explore these frontier offshore basins.”
