Envisory provides policy advice to government organisations in New Zealand, Australia and Pacific Island countries on the security of fuel supply.
We advise on how a country’s fuel supply security can be improved, how policy responses may influence energy security and how supply chains might respond in an emergency. We model disruption scenarios to assess economic impacts and options for alternative supply.
Envisory provides advice to the Australian and New Zealand Governments to assist them with policy development relating to their membership of the International Energy Agency (IEA).
Examples of our policy work include:
- Assessment of the fuel security implications from the closure of New Zealand’s only refinery and fuel stockholding costs and benefits
- Recommendations to the World Bank (on behalf of the Government of Vanuatu) for improving supply security and cost of petroleum and LPG in Vanuatu
- Co-authors examining the likely consequences of a major natural gas disruption event in New Zealand
- Options for the Australian Government to meet its IEA stock obligations
- Commercial and technical advice to the New Zealand Government including project management of its stock tenders to meet IEA obligations
- The impact of oil stock in transit (on the water) on IEA obligations for both the Australian and New Zealand Governments
