Bidders for the latest petroleum exploration permit block offer in Taranaki have been told they have to engage with iwi on an ongoing basis.

Petroleum and Minerals national manager Ilana Miller says the condition was added after consultation with iwi and hapū.

The Block Offer covers just over 2000 square onshore kilometres.

The Government is no longer offering offshore petroleum exploration permits.

The change in the legislation also prohibits access to conservation land, as part of the Block Offer process, except for minimum impact activities.
