Gas guzzling: Subdued oil and gas prices are prompting mergers and acquisitions

Firms in the Oil and Gas Extraction industry mainly supply crude oil for export markets, or natural gas for domestic industrial, commercial and residential users. All of New Zealand's oil and gas extraction takes place in the Taranaki Basin, in the Taranaki region. The industry's small size on a global scale and concentration in one geographic area makes it economical for a small number of firms to hold a large share of the market. As a result, the industry's major players, Todd Energy, OMV, Greymouth and Beach Energy, make up the majority of industry revenue.Over the past five years, the industry has been negatively affected by weak crude oil prices, particularly in 2015 and 2016, when oil prices fell more.
