Gulf Tribe sets and gets approval as LO group; wrong project named

Looks like the author of the article ha a slip-up in his article and states "PNG LNG" but means Gulf LNG. PPLs 236, 237 and 238 are IOC's license areas, not PNG LNG's. Oooooooops

Gulf Tribe sets up Resource Holdings
The 6000 population of the people of Pawaya Tribe of Wabo in Gulf Province can finally benefit from the multibillion PNG LNG project after finally setting up its own Resource Owner Holding Company (ROHC) this year.
Chairman of the Pawaya Resource Owner Association, John Amai said the registered entity has the support of the 45 sub tribes and 142 registered incorporated Land groups as well as the backing of the Gulf Provincial government. This includes those that are living outside of Pawaya Tribal area of Wabo in the Gulf Province.
Amai said the ROHC that is recognized by the Gulf Provincial government under the leadership of current governor Havila Kavo have given their full blessings for the benefit of all the people with in PPL 236, 237 and 238 areas.
“With the able support of our JV Company, ROHC Ltd is prepared to secure major contracts from the Developers in the coming weeks,” Amai said.
Meanwhile Amai is calling on the Prime Minister Peter O’Neill and Minister for Mining and Petroleum, William Duma to quickly  carry out the final social mapping acitivity before the final investment decision is approved.
“Through this exercise, al Pawaya tribal clans and members who are living outside of Wabo area are to be identified and recorded to benefit from these multi-billion projects to avoid any physical confrontation and legal battles,” Amai said."
Technically IOC does have an entity named PNG LNG which is a parent of LNGL, so confusion is warranted. But mentioning a need for "quickly" get the social mapping complete before FID indicates high urgency. Last we heard the mapping has been completed. FID could be imminent.
