ExxonMobil PNG managing director

Year of tragedy and triumph

Speaking at the recent ExxonMobil PNG’s Stakeholder Thank you event, Barry said the 2018 February earthquake was the worst disaster he had seen.

Barry said while the PNG LNG project was affected by the earthquake, there were no major injuries. However, many surrounding communities were affected.

He said without the support of partners they would not have been able to attend to them; a role that is still continuing to this day.
