Greymouth Petroleum has been granted consent to carry out exploration on Stewart Island and to drill one well site.

Southland District Council senior resource management planner Jennifer Green said the consent was for exploration over four months, and allows one drilling well on a site at Horseshoe Bay Road.

"This consent is for exploration only, and any testing of the well or drilling of further wells will be subject to another resource consent application," Green said.

Activities include 24-hour drilling operations, temporary buildings/structures and minor earthworks relating to site construction and reinstatement.

The consent has been granted with 13 conditions.

Consents have also been obtained from Environment Southland.
