Oil and Gas

Our rich experience in this field means that we can work side-by-side with your team to develop best-fit solutions that are tailor-made for your requirements.

Our involvement with oil and gas in New Zealand began with the development of the Kapuni gas field when a consortium comprising Shell, BP and Todd Energy first discovered gas in 1959, a landmark event for New Zealand.

When the Kapuni field went into production in 1969, it launched a new energy era for the country as both consumers and the commercial sector took advantage of gas as an efficient and low cost energy source. It also paved the way for the development of Taranaki's energy infrastructure and further discoveries such as the offshore Maui field.

Today, our Taranaki-based team have a strong connection to their local community and understand the importance of the oil and gas sector to the region. It is WSP Opus' local presence and wider network of over 40 offices in New Zealand that enables us to deliver global expertise at a local level.
