  • Institutions & Energy Policy

    Papua New Guinea (PNG for short) occupies the eastern half of the island of New Guinea (the western part belongs to Indonesia). The capital is called Port Moresby. Papua New Guinea is rich in natural resources (gold, oil, gas and copper). Agriculture occupies around 85% of the population and...

  • Energy Companies


    Oil Search and InterOil are also the two main gas operators.

    Nevertheless, new players such as Talisman, Samsung, DSME E&R and Hoegh have entered the sector in recent years following the construction of the first LNG project.

    PNG LNG, a consortium made up of ExxonMobil (...

  • Energy Supply


    Crude oil production virtually stopped in 2011, and only resumed in 2013 (0.76 Mt in 2014). Before 2009, it declined steadily, from 4.5 Mt in 1990 to 3.7 Mt in 2000 and to around 2 Mt between 2007 and 2009.

    The country has one refinery with a capacity of 32 500 bbl/d.

  • Energy Consumption

    Total energy consumption per capita is relatively stable, at 0.5 toe. Electricity consumption per capita was 440 kWh (2015).

    Total energy consumption is mainly covered by oil (44%) and biomass (43%). The remaining consumption comes from hydropower and geothermal (11%) and gas (2%).

  • Issues & Prospects

    In the APEC 6th edition of Energy Demand and Supply Outlook report, primary energy demand is projected to increase from 2.6 Mtoe in 2013 to 7.7 Mtoe in 2030 (BAU scenario).
