WELLINGTON - New Zealand Oil & Gas Ltd. said Thursday that it has acquired a 50% interest in an exploration permit for the Canterbury basin off the east coast of New Zealand's South Island from a subsidiary of Beach Energy Ltd.
Financial details weren't disclosed for the deal, which will see the Wellington-based company become the operator of the permit once regulatory approval has been received.
The Canterbury and Great South Basin are a major focus for conventional oil and gas exploration in New Zealand and drilling in an adjacent permit is scheduled for next year, the company said.
