Papua New Guinea with Total to discuss Papua LNG

 DIALOGUE between the Papua New Guinea Government and Total, the operator of the Papua LNG project, has been scheduled for next Thursday, the country's Petroleum Minister Kerenga Kua says.

Prime Minister James Marape told Parliament that a high level delegation from Total would be in the country to hold talks on the project.

Marape had said other partners in country including ExxonMobil and Oil Search would participate in the discussions to progress the project into its next phase.

“The Total delegation will arrive in the country in the next two weeks and myself and minister Kua will sit with them for them to tell us what the exact timeline of Papua-LNG is going forward,” Marape said.

“The economy should be happy and excited that Papua-LNG hasn’t been scraped off as far as direct foreign investment is concerned.

“Companies like Total and Exxon are major global operators.

“They have investment footprints all over, the globe is their market place.

“For our interests sake, Total had 80 trillion cubic feet of gas project from Mozambique that was coming in directly in contest with our own gas resources we have in Papua and other stratified we have.”
