Fuel supply outages (NZ)

(Client: Ministry of Business, Innovation and Employment)

This study focused on using the Non-Spatial MERIT tool to evaluate the economic consequences of fuel outage scenarios, with and without mitigation options to better understand the impact of disruption and potential value of mitigation actions for New Zealand.

The MERIT tool was applied to five disruption scenarios including international fuel supply disruption, refinery disruption scenarios, and refinery to Auckland pipeline disruptions.

The project findings contributed to the Board of Inquiry into the 2017 Auckland Fuel Supply Disruption.
The full project report is available from the MBIE website.
