Good afternoon,

New Zealand Petroleum & Minerals is reviewing the fees charged for petroleum prospecting permits and offshore minerals permits. I would like to invite you to make a submission as part of consultation for this review.

This partial review focuses on issues that need to be addressed this year. We will complete a full review of the fees regime in 2015-16, once operational changes to support the 2013 amendments to the Crown Minerals Act are fully implemented.

This partial review will focus specifically on annual fees for petroleum prospecting permits and offshore minerals permits. Our analysis suggests we are charging more for these permits than we should be.

Our aim is to ensure the regime is transparent, fair and consistent with public sector best practice. We are consulting on the proposed changes with industry stakeholders and iwi. In particular we would like feedback on the following questions:

1. Do you agree with the analysis of the proposed fees for offshore minerals permits? If not, why not?

2. What are the effects of the proposed fees on your organisation?

The consultation closes on Friday 6 June 2014.

More detail on the review, including the consultation document and information on how to make a submission is available on our website.

Please let me know if there is a better contact person for this email. If you have questions about the review please contact me.

Yours sincerely,
Sefton Darby
