Western Province Deputy Governor Abini Gesele

Western Province to back Western Pipeline

Deputy Governor, Abini Gesele, told Loop PNG that he has spoken to KPHL and wants to see cooperation between all stakeholders to make the project a reality and for the people to benefit.

The proposed third train Liquefied Natural Gas (LNG) project was announced by KPHL Managing Director, Wapu Sonk, in Sydney, Australia, last month.

The Western Pipeline aims to aggregate all the gas fields in the Western Province into a single pipeline that will run all the way to Port Moresby.

Deputy governor wants unity

Abini Gesele says he is a believer in unity and wants leaders of the province to work together to deliver services to the people.

Biyama told Loop PNG last month that he was willing to put his hand up for the Governor seat, whatever the outcome of the appeal on the current Governor’s jail conviction.

Gesele said Biyama is a respected and long serving parliamentarian for the province.

“If he (Biyama) puts his hand up for Governor’s seat, I’m willing to support him, because the big thing is, let’s work together so that the benefit reach our people.
