Issued 15 September 2015.

Corrections were made on 15 September 2015 to the commentary and tables in Energy in New Zealand, published on 12 August 2015. The corrections relate to unit conversion of natural gas and LPG reserves, and only affect the reserves as at 1 January 2015.

As a result, there were minor changes to reserves for several fields. Ultimate recoverable natural gas and LPG reserves (2P) fell 1% (previously published as increasing by 1%), and remaining natural gas and LPG reserves (2P) fell 12% (previously published as falling by 10%), from 2,642 PJ to 2,328 PJ. Additionally, the Taranaki oil and gas fields map has been updated.
