Incomplete contents:
The modern hydrocarbon exploration effort has steadily increased over the last 35 years with the total reserves of hydrocarbons being discovered during the last 26 years. The rate of discovery has followed the typical international trend of large initial finds dropping off to much smaller discoveries with continued exploration. This suggests that in the areas of New Zealand explored since 1950 future discoveries are likely to be more difficult to make and they will be in the smaller categories rather than equalling the finds of Kapuni and Maui

The modern hydrocarbon exploration effort has steadily increased over the last 35 years with the total reserves of hydrocarbons being discovered during the last 26 years. The rate of discovery has followed the typical international trend of large initial finds dropping off to much smaller discoveries with continued exploration. This suggests that in the areas of New Zealand explored since 1950 future discoveries are likely to be more difficult to make and they will be in the smaller categories rather than equalling the finds of Kapuni and Maui
