37 CONFIRMED DEAD IN SHP QUAKE

The natural disaster damaged the impoverished nation's biggest-ever development project as well, the PNG LNG project operated by USA energy giant ExxonMobil, setting it back by up to 8 weeks as the facilities damaged by the quake would undergo repairs.

Oil Search on Monday said it will revise its production guidance and estimate the likely earnings hit when it can.

The 7.5 magnitude quake struck the PNG highlands late last month, devastating the local area and shutting down the PNG LNG project.

It is likely as more detailed examination is made of the project's various bits and pieces the delay could be extended. "They think the end of the world is happening". Exxon said earlier this month that together with its partners, France's Total SA and Australia's Oil Search, it plans to nearly double the facility's export capacity to 16 million tonnes per year.

"The earthquakes are occurring well below where the oil and gas industry is operating".

ExxonMobil's Hide Gas Conditioning Plant saw the plant's camp damaged by the quake.

Its central processing facility is also less damaged than originally thought and can be restarted within the next two to three weeks.

The death toll has now reached some 70 people as the quake triggered landslides, destroyed buildings, and closed down oil and gas operations.

All personnel are safe and accounted for and ExxonMobil and Oil Search, as the operators of the various joint ventures, continue to evaluate the situation and plan for production resumption, Santos confirmed.
