Kumul Petroleum Holdings Limited Kumul Petroleum Holdings Limited Promoting Excellence for Benefiting Papua New Guinea for now and into the future.

Kumul Petroleum holdings Limited is Papua New Guinea’s national oil and gas company (NOC) mandated to protect and maximize the value of the Country’s assets such that it can contribute to the maximum wealth for its ultimate shareholders; the 7 million plus people of Papua New Guinea.

When the Kumul Legislations is Certified, Kumul Petroleum will be Kumul Petroleum Holdings Limited.

Since its inception in 2009 as Kumul Petroleum, the NOC was operating as a commercial entity with its core commercial interest being the interest in the PNG LNG Project.

Kumul Petroleum holdings Limited is currently responsible for managing the State’s 16.57% equity in the S$19b PNG LNG Project; becoming the 3rd largest partner in this single largest investment made by the nation to date.

Kumul Petroleum holdings Limited being a NOC envisions being like Petronas of Malaysia in creating value and opportunity for PNG and its people by becoming a major national oil and gas corporation.

Kumul Petroleum holdings Limited has the potential to be like Petronas because it has the oil and gas resources in the country that it will always have an option for 20.5% stake in every development.

The Exploration potential is very high as well so Kumul Petroleum can grow to a Multi-Billion dollar company very quickly in PNG and start venturing outside of PNG.

That is the vision of Kumul Petroleum or Kumul Petroleum Holdings has and it will carry PNG’s flag everywhere it goes.

That is what we truly mean to say “creating wealth and opportunities for Papua New Guinea now and into the future.”
