About Energy Resources Aotearoa

Energy Resources Aotearoa represents energy intensive businesses, from explorers and producers to distributors, sellers, and users, of energy resources like oil, LPG, natural gas, refined products, and hydrogen.

Right now, natural gas and oil take care of around 40 per cent of New Zealand's primary energy. This is energy that families, businesses, industries, schools and hospitals depend on.

Energy Resources Aotearoa members provide around 90% of natural gas and oil produced in New Zealand and use around two thirds of all natural gas consumed.

We support balanced energy choices because balance benefits all New Zealanders as we transition to a lower emissions future.

We are partnering with Government, industry, and innovators to make this transition work.

In 2021 we changed our name from the Petroleum Exploration and Production Association of New Zealand (PEPANZ) to reflect our new strategic approach and move into being the voice of a successful and resilient energy resources sector.
