P021 EXPLORATION OF IGNEOUS CORED DOMES TARANAKI BASIN NEW ZEALAND Abstract: Although known to host hydrocarbons the Neogene igneous cored domes of the North Taranaki Basin are an under-explored play. Exploration of these features requires developing geophysical methods for imaging them and geological models for predicting reservoir quality. Research on two of the domes Kora and Nga Motu leads to new concepts for their exploration. 1 Introduction: Taranaki Basin provides New Zealand’s petroleum production from a number of oil and gas fields. The smallest and oldest (since 1865) is the Moturoa Field where oil is produced from Neogene turbidites proximal
