  • This dataset contains geospatial datasets for sedimentary basins in the Northwest Province (Taranaki, Deepwater Taranaki, and Reinga-Northland basins), produced and compiled as part of GNS Science's "Atlas of Petroleum Prospectivity" programme (APP). APP is synthesising the wealth of new and existing information and knowledge within GNS Science and other open-file sources, to produce a nationally-significant baseline reference dataset that summarises the current understanding of the petroleum prospectivity of New Zealand's offshore sedimentary basins. Polygon, point, and polyline features are organised thematically into Feature Datasets, each of which contains multiple Feature Classes. Raster datasets are included at the highest hierarchical level of the database. The co-ordinate system used for the database is New Zealand Transverse Mercator, based on the NZGD2000 datum. Database compilation was undertaken using ArcGIS 10.3.1 for Desktop (version For further information on these data, please refer to: Arnot, M.J. and Bland, K.J. et al. (Compilers), 2016.

  • Supplementary Data Table 1 Otago and Marlborough schist, detrital zircon ages of schist protoliths U-Th-Pb isotopic ratios, measured and common-Pb corrected detrital zircon ages A) Western Otago: Samples 1-18 B) Marlborough: Samples 19-30 Supplementary Data Table 2 U-Pb zircon age data, southern New England Orogen granite suites: Samples 1-6 Key Points • Original protoliths are recognisable within the Haast Schist of New Zealand on the basis of distinctive detrital zircon age patterns. • The Aspiring Lithological Association (Otago Schist) of western Otago, is correlated with a similar belt of schistose rocks (Marlborough Schist) in western Marlborough, and both are assigned to a Waipapa Composite Terrane protolith of Jurassic to Late Triassic age. • The Jurassic-Late Triassic sandstones within Waipapa Composite Terrane are dominantly of granitoid provenance in eastern Australia. • Detrital zircons of Carboniferous age in Waipapa Composite Terrane support a possible New England Orogen provenance in northeastern NSW and southeastern Queensland, and also indicate possible primary sources for the gold and tungsten in the western Otago Schist and western Marlborough Schist. • This result is in marked contrast to eastern Otago Schist where the protolith is Rakaia Terrane of Late Triassic age and whose provenance is in central-eastern Queensland.

  • Downstream infrastructure Maui offshore platforms; Tui and Maari FPSOs; Pohokura, Maari and Kupe unmanned platforms. Eight onshore production stations in Taranaki. North Island gas pipeline network, including pipelines to Gisborne and Hastings. Oil refinery and port at Marsden Point, Whangarei, with connections to the North Island gas pipeline network and a liquids pipeline to Auckland.

  • This collection of datasets contains the 1:50 000 geological data for the Middlemarch area, East Otago, New Zealand (Topo50 sheet CD16). They spatially represents an interpretation of geological and geophysical information compiled from new field work and existing data. The mapping frame for the majority of datasets is defined as surface geology (i.e. the bedrock and superficial deposits that would be visible if the overlying soil was removed or are exposed at the topographic surface). The data structure complies with the GeoSciML Portrayal standard where one exists and fields required by that standard were populated using the CGI Controlled Vocabulary (2012-11). The data should not be used at scales beyond that for which it was prepared. The spatial accuracy is estimated to be no better than +/- 100 m. The datasets were produced by GNS Science and are associated with Martin, A.P.; Cox, S.C.; Smith Lyttle, B. 2016: Geology of the Middlemarch area 1:50 000. GNS Science geological map 5.
