PNG LNG: What Could PNG’s Pipeline Bring?

The PNG LNG Project - The Ability to Change PNG

Chris Wright (CW) of Euromoney has written a BRILLIANT article on the PNG LNG project and some of the numerous effects it will have on the people and government of Papua New Guinea – from its spin-off effects to stimulating economic growth and reducing public debt to the risk of Dutch Disease and enormous strain on our already overloaded infrastructure.

The article has copy/paste protection so I couldn’t copy it to this post directly – what I’ve done instead is select excerpts of the article which are presented below.
