26 – 28 March 2018


The New Zealand Petroleum Conference is New Zealand’s premier oil and gas event.  Every year large numbers of delegates from across New Zealand and around the world come together to celebrate our petroleum industry.

The Conference is the only event in the sector that brings together senior government officials, regulators, industry leaders, international experts and service providers.

We are delighted that the 2018 Conference will be held in Wellington – New Zealand’s political and cultural centre.  Wellington truly is one of New Zealand’s great cities, often described as the world’s coolest little capital – famous for its cosmopolitan feel, craft beer, great food, creative culture and coffee.

New Zealand’s oil and gas sector is poised for action and ready for growth – exploration activity is progressing and there is genuine excitement about the opportunities available and the development underway.

Strong international attention continues to be focussed on the country with its strong economy, stable policy settings, robust regulatory framework and strong potential for commercial hydrocarbon discoveries.

The 2018 Petroleum Conference will see the industry come together to celebrate its achievements. We promise an informative and diverse programme, outstanding networking opportunities and a lot of fun. We hope you choose to be part of this conference.
