The Oil and Gas Interest group attempts to summarise, on a regular basis in the Society Newsletter, what is happening in the exploration sector of the Oil and Gas Industry in New Zealand. We tend to stress geological issues, to satisfy our main readership, but are aware that numerous other aspects have to be understood and commented upon in the appraisal of New Zealands hydrocarbon resources.

The Newsletter "Round Up" is written and edited by a small group of Government and Industry professionals (some retired) who try to inform our readers, and stimulate discussion within our membership, on a variety of oil and gas issues. The issue of geological education is also within our orbit as we recognise the need for younger minds to become involved in this exciting industry.
