Kumul LNG Project Director, Mr Jason Pollock added: The scope of the concept feasibility study currently undertaken to evaluate the potential KEH economics will include a mid-scale LNG liquefaction and regional export facility to encourage future PNG electrification via gas-driven generation in remote areas, a 180MW power generation facility of which up to 100MW has been allocated for Western and Southern Highlands electrification via future grid connection, a methanol processing facility to enable local petrochemical bi-product production, and a condensate stabilisation, storage and regional export facility.
