Energy firm aids PNG community

Energy firm looks to aid impoverished, but resource-rich Papua New Guinea.

    Papua New Guinea is an impoverished country rich in natural resources.

    Last year, it signed a deal with Exxon Mobil for a $15bn liquefied natural gas project.

    Other resources projects in PNG have been criticised for not helping local communities.

    But Exxon's local partner, Oil Search, says it is striking a balance - even providing services to the local community that the national government has failed to deliver.

    Al Jazeera's Laura Kyle reports.

    No, it wasn't because of WMDs, democracy or Iraqi oil. The real reason is much more sinister than that.
