The landowners are fromthe Gulf LNG Umbrella Company representthe entire gulf province, andthe five project areas, that isthe Petoi Wharf, Pipeline Resource, Processing facility,the oil head andthe offshore waterways resources.
They are not happy withthe current development onthe Gulf LNG Project. They want to be more involved but that is notthe case.
Havila Kavo,they say should not be hiring foreign workers from Fiji, but usethe money to train locals for the job.
“Why underminethe Gulf people and Papua New Guineas when we havethe money to develop our people to meet our National 2050 Vision,”they said. “Gulf people have been lacking development for many years and we believe thatthe Gulf LNG project will make a difference so we Gulf must fully participate in this project.”
The landowners have also demandedInter Oil to immediately engage a second partner to develop Gulf Resources and involvethem inthe consultative process.
“They are making decisions wheretheLandowners andthe people of Gulfthemselves don’t know who will developthe project…we will do all we can to stop this project if our demand is rejected,”they said.
