Major earthworks and civil works for the construction of the platform and drilling pads for the production wells. Other activity include forming access ways for construction vehicles.
- Hours of Work, 7am – 7pm, 7 days a week except on Public Holidays.
- Night works would be unlikely / small scale (for the Earthworks and Civil Enabling Works).
As most of the work is happening on Top Energy’s property you should not be adversely impacted by the construction. There will be a number of truck and trailer units required to transport the drilling rig to and from the site. This means that there will be increased heavy traffic along the selected routes of SH 1, SH 12 and Ngawha Springs Road during the project setup, construction and close-down stages.

Several site plans have been prepared to facilitate the management of erosion, traffic, dust (air quality), contamination and noise.
