The Cook Islands have no history of oil or gas production and no exploration wells have ever been drilled on any of the islands or in their vast area of surrounding ocean. Globalshift does not forecast any future production of oil or gas from the country.
For recent events see News Briefs.
The Cook Islands are extinct Tertiary volcanoes extruded into the oceanic basement of the Pacific plate through fissures or over hot spots in the mantle.
Some of the islands are fringed by reefs and can be formed into well-defined atolls but Globalshift regards them to have no oil and gas potential onshore and offshore.
