TOTALENERGIES has reassured communities in Gulf that the US$10 billion (about K34.2 billion) Papua LNG project is back on track.
The front end engineering design (Feed) is set for June and the final investment decision (FID) next year.
New senior vice-president TotalEnergies E&P Asia-Pacific, Julien Pouget, who was recently in the country travelled to Poroi Two on Thursday and met locals, said the project was back on track and the people of Gulf would now see increased activity.
Pouget spent two days in the province, seeing firsthand the terrain and landscape of petroleum retention licence (PRL 15), the Elk Antelope fields and met staff at the Herd base.
During a meeting with members of the village, he said being good neighbours was central to the firm’s relationship with all communities along the Purari River.
Pouget noted that health, education and livelihood development would remain the priority of TotalEnergies community development programmes, especially at this early stage.
“We seek more opportunities to work and collaborate with partners and take advantage of our logistical capabilities to deliver more community-based projects and programmes,” he said.
On the Papua LNG project, Pouget said the company was here to deliver the Papua LNG Project.
He said commitments had been made between the company’s chairman Patrick Pouyanne and the Government which had been reaffirmed.
He added that the Papua LNG Project would provide a much needed impetus to the PNG economy.
