      The Paparoa Metamorphic Core Complex (PCC) on the West Coast of the South Island of New Zealand is a bivergent core complex, characterized by the top-to-the-SW Pike Detachment at its southern end and the top-to-the-NE Ohika Detachment in the north (Tulloch and Kimbrough, ) ().Spell et al. () proposed that extension initiated at the Ohika Detachment, but Cited by: The Taranaki basin, on the west coast of the north island, contains all of New Zealand's currently producing fields (Fig. 1) but in a global sense .

Cretaceous structures are dominantly compressional onshore in the north and extensional offshore and in the south. There are few Paleogene structures, reflecting a passive margin phase.

Numerous oil and gas seeps demonstrate the region's petroleum potential, and significant gas was found in the two offshore wells drilled. On return to New Zealand, he commenced research on the sedimentary basins of the West Coast of the South Island; this later expanded to cover the whole of New Zealand and culminated in the management of a major project on the Cretaceous and Cenozoic basins of the New Zealand region.

The Taranaki Basin is an onshore-offshore Cretaceous rift basin on the West Coast of New Zealand. Development of rifting was the result of extensional stresses during the breakup of basin later underwent fore-arc and intra-arc basin development, due to the subduction of the Pacific Plate under the Australian Plate at the Hikurangi Subduction System.

The West Coast region of New Zealand’s South Island is situated at the eastern edge of the Australian plate where it is being overthrust and dextrally offset against the Pacifi c plate along the Alpine Fault.
