As the operator of the PNG LNG project, ExxonMobil PNG Ltd has commenced delivery of up to 25 MW of electricity from the PNG LNG plant to PNG Power.
ExxonMobil PNG’s Managing Director, Andrew Barry, has said that he was extremely proud of the achievement, delivering on a key commitment to supply electricity to PNG Power, who will utilise the supply locally under a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) which was signed with the government and PNG Power in January 2015.
Mr Barry said: “ExxonMobil PNG has done an outstanding job of fast tracking the project in order to deliver electricity from gas turbine generators inside the plant, to the people of PNG in time for the start of the Pacific Games […] A team of 80 people completed around 100 000 hr of work to deliver the project safely and without incident.”
