Terms and conditions

The Oil and Gas Capability Database is a flexible, customised database for the O&G industry. It is a commercially-neutral marketing tool for New Zealand O&G businesses, a business-to-business searching service where buyers and sellers can connect, generate new connections and increase the global visibility of their businesses.

The database is operated by Venture Taranaki – the regional development agency for Taranaki, New Zealand. Venture Taranaki is an initiative founded by New Plymouth District Council. It is supported by South Taranaki District Council, Stratford District Council, Taranaki Electricity Trust, New Zealand Trade and Enterprise, and numerous private sector organisations.

Registration Policy

Participation in the O&G Database is open to all NZ O&G businesses and related organisations, subject to the limitations set out below:

  1. Venture Taranaki reserves the right to exclude from the database businesses that are identified as ineligible for support.
  2. Venture Taranaki reserves the right to exclude businesses that market products or services that are illegal or restrained by court order (e.g., court order regarding the right of a company to use a trademark).
  3. Venture Taranaki reserves the right to exclude businesses that cannot be independently verified as a fully operational company operating in New Zealand.
  4. Venture Taranaki reserves the right to exclude or to remove businesses from the database that may be inconsistent with local or national legislation, policies or programmes (or that may be in non-compliance with these).

Venture Taranaki is responsible for the monitoring and management of the O&G Capability database. Venture Taranaki considers free registration on the database to be a privilege provided to New Zealand businesses, and reserves the right, at its sole discretion, to remove a registration from the database for reasons of public interest and public protection.
