KPHL appointment to lead gas-fired power generation

Kumul Petroleum Holdings Limited (KPHL) is quickly moving forward to establish the Gas fired 58 Mega Watt power generator outside Port Moresby.

Recently the company appointed former part-time employee, Richard Robinson, to head its Energy Business Subsidiary which oversees the power plant.

Robinson was with KPHL between 2013 and 2014 and led efforts to develop gas-fired power generation in Port Moresby.

In a media statement KPHL Managing Director, Wapu Sonk, said Robinson will focus on the set up and development of the new business venture whilst maintaining a close overview of the initial Port Moresby gas-fired power station project development.

“This is a very exciting time for KPHL as we continue to develop as the key energy partner of the people of PNG.

“We are very pleased to have Richard, with his 30 years of experience in the PNG energy industry, back in the team.

“Richard recently stood down from the position of Chairman of Kina Petroleum Limited, an ASX/POMSOX listed explorer in Papua New Guinea,” he said.

Soink further added “The Power station is currently being developed on a 50/50 basis with Oil Search Limited.

Richard has re-joined us to lead our new Energy venture and his primary focus will be to construct and deliver the Power Project before APEC 2018.”
