Here are below some videos to introduce you to the activities of Papua LNG in Papua New Guinea:
Teachers welcome ceremony in the villages
Papua LNG’s partnership with the National Volunteer Service (NVS) focuses on social and educational services through the use of volunteer teachers. The ceremony celebrates the arrival of the teachers in Wabo and Evara (Gulf Province), embodying the collaborative efforts of Papua LNG, NVS and the Gulf Provincial Government.
Watch this moving video to see how Papua LNG supports the cause of education with facts.
Pre-clearing surveys (Cultural Heritage)
With a focus on cultural heritage, the Pre-Clearance Surveys (PCS) plays a crucial role in the preservation and conservation of cultural sites. Consultation with communities, recording of cultural material, and compliance with regulations and permits ensure the protection of Papua New Guinea’s cultural heritage.
Watch the third and last episode here, which covers the cultural heritage.
Pre-clearing surveys (Aquatic biodiversity)
As part of Papua LNG’s commitment to environmental stewardship, the Pre-Clearance surveys (PCS) are critical to understanding the physical and cultural landscape. In June 2023, an aquatic team from ERIAS (an independent environmental assessment agency) carried out water and soil quality assessments, and we were on site to witness their surveys.
Watch the second episode here, which covers the aquatic biodiversity.
Pre-clearing surveys (Terrestrial biodiversity)
At the end of June 2023, we followed the ERIAS (an independent environmental assessment agency) team on site as they carried out the Pre-clearing surveys (PCS) required under the Environment Act. We witnessed their work in assessing environmental sensitivities and features that may be affected by the Project.
Watch the first episode here, which covers the terrestrial biodiversity, including flora and fauna.
Papua LNG second Information Session (Early Work and Infrastructure)
Earlier in May and in the first week of June 2023, the Papua LNG project team successfully updated local and international business houses in Papua New Guinea (PNG) the status of the Project, as well as crucial information regarding Upstream project packages of interest.
Two information sessions in the form of breakfast events, were held in partnership with the Chamber of Commerce and Industry of Port Moresby and Lae. Here below the highlight video.
First barge trip down the Purari River
From the 6th to the 16th of May, 2023, Papua LNG achieved a major milestone by becoming the first company in PNG to transport and offload the first barge of aggregates from Port Moresby to our logistics base (Herd Base) on the Purari River. This complex mission was accomplished by the Logistics and Marine Operations team.

Papua LNG project overview
Papua LNG is a liquefied natural gas (LNG) production project led by TotalEnergies in response to Papua New Guinea’s desire to develop its gas resources.
Gas resources in PNG have been estimated at over 1 billion barrels of oil equivalent. The Project will have a projected LNG export volume of 5.6 million tonnes per year (Mt/y).
Watch this instructional video to understand the Project in its entirety.
Saving the frogs
Climate Change has wide ranging impact on biodiversity. Many animals and plants cannot adapt to impacts of climate change. Amphibians such as frogs have moist skin, which detect very small changes in the environment, such as moisture and temperature changes or any modification in nature balance.
This film shows frogs are affected by a global pandemic and how the Project assists in the global effort to protect these special creatures form extinctions.
Papua LNG first Information Session
On October 7th, 2022, Papua LNG organized a Project Information Session at the Stanley hotel, attended by over 200 members of the PNG business community.
If you would like to learn more about this special day from the actors themselves, please watch the video and the interviews with key people involved in the Project.
Zero Net Deforestation
The project has made a bold commitment to implementing the Zero Net Deforestation (ZND) policy.
The video below shows the project’s activities to effectively implement the ZND policy through the production of high value and native plantation species, the sustainable management of 7,500 hectares of native forest combined with plantations in Kuriva, a mangrove restoration and conservation programme in Koke Hanua and a sandalwood conservation programme.
Papua LNG engages with local communities
The EIS Roadshow, mandated by the Environment Act, educates stakeholders about the activities, impacts, and mitigation measures of the Papua LNG project. Over 13 locations from April 7th to 22nd, 2022, 31 communities and 2,870 attendees learned about the Project.
This informative event demonstrates Papua LNG’s dedication to protecting the environment while pursuing sustainable development. Embark on a sound and color adventure through the villages of the Project area.
Balancing Energy & Biodiversity
The island of New Guinea is home to the third-largest tropical rainforest on earth, and Papua New Guinea boasts 7% of global biodiversity on less than 1% of the surface area.
Papua LNG is committed in balancing energy and biodiversity preservation.
In this video, you will understand the strategy used to achieve this goal.
TVET Graduation Ceremony 2022
The graduation ceremony for Port Moresby Technical College took place on April 6th, 2022. This year Papua LNG has again sponsored 57 students from the Gulf Province to study a variety of TVET Programs at POM Tech. Among those, 22 are female (38% of total).
