Micah sees huge opportunity for unconventional gas
Friday, 8 July 2016
PETROLEUM and Energy Minister Ben Micah this week reaffirmed Papua New Guinea's commitment to the development of a shale gas industry in the country.

He said it was previously thought that "this type of gas" did not occur in PNG.
"We will now join the United States in this exciting development by joining the shale gas revolution," he said, referring to the prospectivity of blocks in Southern Highlands, Gulf and Western provinces,
He warned that it might take up to seven months for licences to be issued to potential investors, as he expected strong appetite for tenements from exploration companies.
"The development of oil and gas has increased in scale and in terms of its reach throughout the country. This industry is going to have a significant impact as exploration work identifies more oil and gas reserves," Micah told journalists at a briefing in Port Moresby.
Noting that legislation allowing for the development of unconventional gas was passed in 2015, Micah said unconventional gas had the potential to earn the country three times more money than the current conventional hydrocarbons.
At the briefing, Micah was joined by Petroleum and Energy acting secretary David Manau and Kumul Petroleum managing director Wapu Sonk.

"I will be proposing to cabinet for Kumul Petroleum, the state-owned oil and gas company, to play a leading role in developing this new unconventional hydrocarbon initiative," Micah said.
