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.

'Te Honongona' Urban Māori Stories
ODT Cartoon outrage misplaced
We should collectively be righteously appalled at the tone deaf ODT cartoon that made light of the terrible measles epidemic that has killed over 50 children in Samoa. It was an ugly 'joke' that shouted white privilege, but calls to boycott the ODT, sack the cartoonist and the enormous social media wave of fury seem to me to be grotesquely misplaced.

Dr Rawiri Taonui: Utilising ‘white’ as a metaphor for ‘a person or woman of colour’ conveys connotations of white superiority.
