The inaugural fundraising golf tournament named Kumul Petroleum Charity Golf Challenge (KPCGC) was held on July 13, 2018.
Forty-two teams, mainly from corporate organisations, played in 4-men Ambrose teams at the Royal Port Moresby Golf Club. The event raised over K130, 000 for Life PNG Care (LPC), a PNG non-government-organisation which takes care of and educates vulnerable children in Port Moresby.
This is the first Signature Event for KPHL and will be held annually to benefit LPC.
Managing Director, Wapu Sonk said, "LPC is doing a tremendous job by empowering underprivileged children in Port Moresby for a sustainable future through education under Strongim Pikinini Education and Mobile Education Programs and we are delighted to be associated with them."
The PNG Petroleum & Energy Summit (PNGPES) was initiated out of the idea that the country’s massive oil, gas and energy potential be well positioned and showcased through an appropriate platform onshore rather than the traditional ways of being showcased offshore.
Hence, the birth of PNG’s home-grown summit, PNGPES in February 2017 at the Stanley Hotel, Port Moresby followed by the second one in 2018.
The Summit covers key topics and sessions on government policies, developing domestic energy market and future strategies for expansion, as well as provides updates on projects from developers.
The Summit brings together over 500 participants including eminent speakers, senior government officials as well as major industry players in PNG and overseas.
The most important aspect of the summit is creating an avenue for LNG buyers, sellers and other corporate entities who are involved in the energy sector, to meet.
