The Green Party is happy that Petrobras has abandoned their search for oil in the Raukumara Basin.

Green Party MP Gareth Hughes said the Government has no mandate to allow oil exploration by overseas companies around areas under the authority of different people.

Anadarko is another company which has abandoned oil exploration on the Taranaki coast. So now the Government has no potential work for the unemployed and should concentrate on manufacturing potential instead.

Kei te harikoa Te Torangapu Kākāriki kua whakarerea e Petrobras tana arunga kohinu i te tāhuna o te moana o Raukumara i Te Rawhiti. Ki nga korero  Gareth Hughes o Te Kakariki kare te Kawanatanga e mau ana i te mana tangata kia ahei nga umanga o tawahi ki te kowiri kohinu i nga rohe o tena iwi, o tena iwi, o tena iwi. Ara hoki te umanga Anadarko kua whakarerea hokitia e ia tan arunga kohinu i te takutai o Taranaki. No reira kare he take nga te Kawanatanga e whai turanga mahi ma te hunga kore mahi me hanga ke he pakihi e hanga taputapu ana.
