Where we operate

The Oil Search Foundation delivers initiatives in the areas surrounding Oil Search’s operational footprint. We have years of experience in the PNG Highlands and Gulf, which are some of the most remote areas in PNG and experience significant development challenges.

We strategically contribute to the sustainable development of communities most impacted by Oil Search’s operations in Nipa-Kutubu in Southern Highlands Province, Hela Province, and Kikori in Gulf Province.

Our expertise in these locations allows us to build partner capacity to deliver better services and support the country’s own resources towards the development priorities that are most beneficial to the local communities. At the same time we leverage logistical and other business assistance from Oil Search to achieve the best possible outcomes.
