2017 Mining and Petroleum Conference

Constant coverage on LO issues concerns chamber

President of the PNG Chamber of Mines and Petroleum, Gerea Aopi, said this during the recent 2017 Mining and Petroleum Conference in Port Moresby.

Aopi said there were currently very positive signs for the mineral, petroleum and LNG sector.

However, further investment in the sectors is under threat due to landowners’ discontent.

“It will be remiss of me to not echo the concerns around landowner commitments. The wide media coverage can adversely impact PNG’s aspirations for the recognition as an attractive investment destination.
