The Ministry of Business Innovation and Employment requires the development of a cost estimating model to provide a clear and consistent method to estimate the cost of decommissioning onshore petroleum production facilities.
The model should use a cost norm-based approach to build up and overall cost of decommissioning that reflects the range of activities specific to each facility. Where possible these norms should reflect New Zealand market conditions and expertise.
As the owner of New Zealand’s petroleum resources the New Zealand Government is both the regulator and a beneficiary of New Zealand’s oil and gas sector. The primary legislation for regulation is the Crown Minerals Act (1991), the purpose of which is to promote prospecting, exploration production for the benefit of New Zealand.
Fundamental to this purpose is to ensure a fair return to the Crown, in the form of a royalty, and to ensure activities are carried out in accordance with best practice. It is therefore necessary for the Crown to have an understanding of the costs associated with decommissioning petroleum production facilities, including wells, at the end of their economic life.
