TotalEnergies EP PNG Limited as an operator of the Papua LNG Project had a strong focus on sustainability, enhancing biodiversity and encouraging low carbon emission solutions hence in partnership with the USAID Papua New Guinea Electrification Partnership Activity, embarked on a solar electrification project to provide a 42-kilowatt renewable energy mini-grid, to the St John Bosco – Kuriva Primary School and Kuriva Sub-Health Centre which was commissioned yesterday.

“Health and education are the backbone of our society; they ensure the future of the next generations,” said Managing Director of TotalEnergies EP PNG Limited Mr Jean-Marc Noiray.

“I am pleased to inaugurate this solarisation project for the Kuriva Primary School and the Kuriva sub-health centre, which demonstrates, among the many social benefits, in addition to the jobs and value creation, that projects like ours can bring to our neighbouring communities so we may prosper together,” he added.

Papua LNG is committed to improving the education and health services in its surrounding Project communities and in cooperation with the Papua New Guinea Forest Authority (PNGFA),

This relationship was further solidified through the signing of two pivotal agreements on August 22, 2023, between TotalEnergies EP PNG Limited and PNGFA, to progress Afforestation / Reforestation (A/R) and forest conservation activities at the Kuriva forestry station, in Central Province.

Additionally, PNGFA Chief Operating Officer Mrs Magdalene Maihua, together with Mr. Noiray, announced at the event, that the Kuriva communities will also benefit from a St John Ambulance that will be based at the Kuriva Health Centre as part of the project’s initiative.
