US energy giant ExxonMobil’s Angore pipeline project in Papua New Guinea sustained damage in recent protests in the country. 

The spokesperson for ExxonMobil’s PNG unit told Reuters that heavy equipment at the project sustained damage due to vandalism at well pad A in Anfore.

The company continues to monitor the situation in the Hela province and will assess the impact of the damage on the project’s schedule.

LNG World News contacted ExxonMobil PNG seeking information on the events. This article will be updated once information is received.

The protests kicked off in Papua New Guinea as a court challenge to a provincial governor’s election failed.

The Angore project is planned to support the ExxonMobil-led PNG LNG facility that was shut down recently due to the damage sustained in the Earthquake that shook Papua New Guinea’s Highlands in February.
