First shipment leaves from PNG LNG project

An official ceremony to mark the beginning of loading of the first shipment of LNG from the ExxonMobil group’s Papua New Guinea LNG project (PNG LNG) onto the Spirit of Hela LNG carrier was held on May 14.

The cargo, loaded from the project’s jetty adjacent to the production plant near Port Moresby, will depart shortly on its way to customer Tokyo Electric Power.

The ceremony was attended by Papua New Guinea Prime Minister Peter O’Neill and the country’s founding Prime Minister Sir Michael Somare.

ExxonMobil Papua New Guinea managing director Peter Graham said the first cargo is only days away from being shipped to customers.
