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.
