This chapter includes the following articles.
Papua New Guinea’s energy sector has undergone a dramatic transformation over the previous decades, with liquefied natural gas (LNG) becoming the sector’s biggest growth driver. The multibillion-dollar PNG LNG project is now operating well above nameplate capacity, and LNG export revenues are expected to remain a major pillar of the economy in the coming decades. Ongoing exploration activities will offer a clearer understanding of the country’s hydrocarbons reserves and further support plans to expand LNG production. Major international oil companies such as ExxonMobil and Total are looking to additional gas fields for new supply.
This chapter contains interviews with Peter Botten, CEO, Oil Search and Andrew Barry, Managing Director, ExxonMobil PNG.
