Govt queried on future plans

Landowners from the Papa-Lealea, Porebada and Boera areas want to know the Government’s future plans for oil and gas production on their land.

A Papa village ward councilor in Central Province is questioning what plans are there for the next 5 years considering the global issues that are affecting PNG.

Councilor Tarata Geita stated that it is important for the PNG government to inform the people on what the future holds for the LNG project in the country.

He said they are the most impacted and they still have some benefits outstanding as well.

They are adamant that the government initiate some kind of awareness or information programs so that they are aware of issues relevant to the gas project.
