The new batch of forty young Papua New Guineans to train at the Kumul Academy in Port Moresby will have the chance to work in the new Papua LNG project.
The Managing Director for Kumul Petroleum Holdings Ltd (KPHL) Mr. Wapo Sonk said the training is in time to make sure that skilled personnel are ready for the second LNG project.
“So this training is just in time for making sure that we have skilled level that is necessary to work in the construction and into the operation phase of existing plant expansions. One more train by Exxon Mobil and two trains to be built by Total,” said Mr. Sonk.
The project agreement is expected to be signed by the government in March with the project to start next year, and by the time the trainees complete their 12 months training, the project construction phase should be in the process to start by then.
Meanwhile, the next forty trainees will be selected in June and July for the Academy.
