OMV New Zealand owns and operates the Maui gas field having acquired the 83.75% share from Shell Exploration NZ and the 6.25% share from Todd Energy at the end of 2018.
Māui was discovered in 1969. The first gas to shore was ten years later, in May 1979.
Until 2008 Maui was the country’s largest gas field. It now meets about 20% of New Zealand’s gas needs.
