A report has been released into the Maui gas leak last October.
The outage caused widespread disruption to businesses in the upper North Island, with many having to completely shut down.
Maui Development Limited's report has found the gas leak and resulting outage was caused by a section of the pipeline in North Taranaki's Pukearuhe area failing due to a landslide.
Investigations have also found that no property, defect or flaw in the pipe itself contributed to the failure.
The section of the pipeline has now been stabilised, and will be continually monitored so a longer term solution for the section can be implemented.
