In addition to maximising the benefit associated with our production operations, we are working with the Government of Papua New Guinea on innovative solutions for the supply of domestic gas to improve the capacity and reliability of Papua New Guinea’s power network.
In July 2015 we commenced supplying 25 megawatts of electricity from gas-fired generators inside the LNG Plant to the grid in Port Moresby.
Discussion is continuing with the government in relation to the development of an additional 50 megawatt gas fired power station on a site near the LNG Plant. This is in addition to the supply of natural gas for the purpose of power generation at Hides.
In order to support the supply of gas for domestic power generation, and maintain capacity of our existing trains, additional field reserves are required.
