Site selection GAP-LNG plant

Mitsubishi Corporation and it’s partner, Talisman Energy (Brisbane office),  are looking for an appropriate site to build a GAP-LNG plant to process their gas reserves coming from the Highlands in the Western Province. One of the possibilities is a reclamation (130 ha) east of Daru Island, which was investigated in concert with SDP (Sustainable Development Project), Port Moresby, Papua New Guinnea.

Extensive studies for a deep water port were carried out in the past. The latest geotechnical survey took place in 2011 - 2013. Technical assistance is still onging and concerns the civil engineering aspects of the site selection, in particular the dredging related items.

The services provided are:

  • Inventarization of existing data, for all the potential site along the coast of PNG
  • Assistance in the port masterplanning at Daru, being proposed as a staged development plan by SDP
  • Active participation in the geotechnical, geophysical and bathymetric survey around Daru and Bristow Island
  • Assessment of the capital and maintenance dredging aspects of the proposed sites
  • Regular workshops with the partners in Brisbane and Tokyo to assess the collected data and discuss the way forward w.r.t. the potential sites and their development
