Offshore Exclusion Areas


There are exclusion areas around the offshore pipelines and platforms which restrict access, anchoring and fishing. These are in place for safety reasons as the pipelines contain flammable gas. These areas are detailed on the LINZ marine charts below:

Exclusion Zone: There is a 500m Exclusion Zone around the Maui A, Maui B, Pohokura and Maari platforms, and Raroa FPSA. Entering this area is prohibited. 
Protected Area: There is a Protected Area either side of the offhsore pipelines which prohibits anchoring or fishing.
