New General Manager Origin Energy New Zealand

Media advisory

11 December 2007

Origin Energy is pleased to announce the creation of the role of General Manager, Origin Energy New Zealand, to oversee the company’s growing upstream interests in New Zealand.

The role, and the appointee, reflects Origin Energy’s decision that its growing interests in the New Zealand energy sector have reached a stage which requires expert and dedicated local senior management oversight.

The inaugural appointee to the role is Chris Bush, a New Zealander who was previously based in Houston with Swift Energy.

Chris will be based in New Plymouth. He will be responsible for managing Origin Energy’s upstream interests in New Zealand including preparing the Kupe Gas Project for commissioning and operations. Chris will also lead representation of Origin Energy with Government, regulators and energy industry associates in New Zealand.

The role will make the most of Chris’ leadership and experience in the energy industry in general management, business development, and project management roles.

Chris was previously responsible for Swift Energy’s Taranaki operations; was General Manager of the Kapuni Gas Processing and Cogeneration facility; and held a number of business development and project management roles within Methanex and Mobil.

In addition to the Kupe Gas Project, Origin Energy’s current upstream interests in New Zealand include a wide portfolio of offshore prospecting licences. The company also is majority owner of Contact Energy.
