Kumul Petroleum supports the 71st New Britain Open!

For the second year in a row, Kumul Petroleum, Papua New Guinea’s national petroleum and energy company, is a gold sponsor for the New Britain Open golf tournament – the longest running sporting event in the country.

Held at the Ralum Country Club in Kokopo from 21-23 July, this major regional sporting event regularly attracts more than 100 amateur and professional golfers from throughout Papua New Guinea and Australia.

Wapu Sonk, Managing Director of Kumul Petroleum Holdings said, “KPHL is happy to contribute to making this annual event a success.”

“Kumul Petroleum supports a number of sporting codes including golf and our small contribution to this particular event is in line with our underlying rationale that sport is an ideal way to bring people together to work and play in a disciplined manner.”

Mr Sonk said, ”Our company is no stranger to East New Britain Province, which has in past years been the recipient of a number of our community investment programs, particularly in the health and law and order sectors.

“Last year Kumul Petroleum was able to provide Nonga Base Hospital with K500,000 of equipment for their Emergency Department, part of the company’s wider support of health infrastructure in the country.”

“Kumul Petroleum also donated three fully kitted out police vehicles to the East New Britain provincial administration to assist them strengthen law and order in the province

Mr Sonk concluded, ”Kumul Petroleum, as the national petroleum and energy company, stands ready to support worthy community initiatives from organisations such as the New Britain Open.”
