Black gold in NZ - we just need to find it!

Share |
It is good to see the NZ government promoting oil & gas exploration. My opinion is that they are not doing enough. Here is an NZ Oil & Gas Presentation for 2011, which provides a good overview of the NZ industry. There are several points I would make:
1. The effective tax rate on oil & gas production is 20-25% of profits - based upon the 20% royalty and a nominal income tax because although the tax rate is 28%, any discovery resulting in production is only going to be realised after capital has been recouped and a scaled up exploration and development program has been advanced, i.e. Don't expect much income recovery.
2. There is a significant income for NZ from local, competitive energy supply, though oil is likely to be processed in Australia. There will be a lot of jobs and engineering work.
3. The NZ government ought not to wait for these private companies to give the country attention; it ought to expedite their own exploration efforts. i.e. Spend $50mil over the next 2 years contracting geophysical surveys over the most prospective areas. This will give a better idea for future exploration, as well as attract private interest. Establish a state oil company and seek private equity so that there is a 'bidder of last resort', and this enterprise ought to be sold off when the market for risk capital arises, or the risks fall.

The motivation for this approach is:
1. NZ has yet to have a significant oil discovery. Until that happens, NZ will not be taken seriously
2. NZ should not be letting foreign nations decide its fortunes
3. NZ needs to place some faith in its oil and gas potential
4. NZ needs to recognise the huge potential of its offshore areas - they trump the offshore mineral potential, and yet the governments primary focus is on these areas. They are getting all the political focus.
5. NZ is in a global recession. Commodity prices are high, and NZ needs to invest in income generation. There is no better area to do this than oil and gas!!!
6. NZ could have a $1 trillion future fund to match Australia's in 2030 if it appreciates its offshore oil potential

Japan Foreclosed Property 2015-2016 - Buy this 5th edition report!

Over the years, this ebook has been enhanced with additional research to offer a comprehensive appraisal of the Japanese foreclosed property market, as well as offering economic and industry analysis. The author travels to Japan regularly to keep abreast of the local market conditions, and has purchased several foreclosed properties, as well as bidding on others. Japan is one of the few markets offering high-yielding property investment opportunities. Contrary to the 'rural depopulation' scepticism, the urban centres are growing, and they have always been a magnet for expatriates in Asia. Japan is a place where expats, investors (big or small) can make highly profitable real estate investments. Japan is a large market, with a plethora of cheap properties up for tender by the courts. Few other Western nations offer such cheap property so close to major infrastructure. Japan is unique in this respect, and it offers such a different life experience, which also makes it special. There is a plethora of property is depopulating rural areas, however there are fortnightly tenders offering plenty of property in Japan's cities as well. I bought a dormitory 1hr from Tokyo for just $US30,000.
You can view foreclosed properties listed for as little as $US10,000 in Japan thanks to depopulation and a culture that is geared towards working for the state. I bought foreclosed properties in Japan and now I reveal all in our expanded 350+page report. The information you need to know, strategies to apply, where to get help, and the tools to use. We even help you avoid the tsunami and nuclear risks since I was a geologist/mining finance analyst in a past life.
