Revenue declines: Low global crude oil prices have negatively affected industry operators

Firms in the Oil and Gas Extraction industry mainly supply crude oil for export markets, or natural gas for domestic industrial, commercial and residential users. All of New Zealand's oil and gas extraction takes place in the Taranaki Basin, in the Taranaki region. The industry's small size on a global scale and concentration in one geographic area makes it feasible for a small number of firms to hold a large share of the market. As a result, the industry's major players, Todd Energy, OMV and Greymouth, make up the majority of industry revenue.Weak crude oil prices, particularly in 2015 and 2016, when oil prices fell sharply, have negatively affected the industry over the past five more.

The market shares held by larger players in the industry also restrict the ability of new entrants to establish sufficient scale to reduce average costs and compete based on price...purchase to read more.
