2009 Papua New Guinea Mining and Petroleum Seminars

The Papua New Guinea Chamber of Mines and Petroleum will be hosting a Petroleum Seminar on the 27th –28th October followed by a Mining Seminar on the 29th – 30th October at the Crowne Plaza, Port Moresby.

As well as providing a comprehensive technical update on current activities in the mining and petroleum industry, these seminars will offer an excellent opportunity to meet all the players in the PNG resources industry, including Government, and for joint venture discussions, networking, and promotion.

The Petroleum Seminar will feature the current activities in the petroleum sector including PNG’s first LNG development, major new gas discoveries at Elk/Antelope in the Gulf Province and Douglas/Puk Puk in the Western Province, and other exploration.

The Mining Seminar will showcase the PNG mining industry highlighting project updates, new developments, advanced prospects, and exploration. PNG’s four new mines – Ramu nickel/cobalt project and Hidden Valley, Simberi and Sinivit gold mines - will be featured as well as the offshore deep sea exploration for seafloor massive sulphide deposits.

The seminars will be complimented by a Trade Fair with 16 companies exhibiting their services, products or exploration/production activities to the delegates.

The Chamber sees the seminars as an important service to members and to the general public.

It is essential that information on the activities of the mining and petroleum sectors is freely available to all.

For this reason, the Chamber endeavours to keep the registration fees for the events to a minimum.

The Chamber is expecting over 800 delegates to attend the seminars.

Along with industry and Government any member of the public is welcomed to attend.
