The 13th bi­en­nial Pa­pua New Guinea Min­ing and Petroleum con­fer­ence will take place at the Hil­ton Ho­tel, Syd­ney on 1 and 2 De­cem­ber 2014. Hosted by the PNG Cham­ber of Mines and Petroleum, the event is the high­light of the PNG re­source in­dus­try’s cal­en­dar. It drew over 1000 del­e­gates in 2012, in­clud­ing rep­re­sen­ta­tives from nearly all the coun­try’s cur­rent min­ing and petroleum projects. 2014 will be a wa­ter­shed year for the in­dus­try, with first LNG ex­ports due, a new Min­ing Act and re­sources tax reg­i­men ex­pected, and re­struc­tur­ing oc­cur­ring in the min­ing sec­tor against a back­ground of lower global metal prices. It will also rep­re­sent a chance for the in­dus­try to hear from new Petroleum and En­ergy Min­is­ter Nixon Duban, who re­placed long­stand­ing min­is­ter Wil­liam Duma in Fe­bru­ary 2014.
