School receives new buildings


The Oil Search and the Tax Credit Scheme project has delivered two new dormitories and two teachers’ houses at a cost of K3.9 million to Bimai high school in Chimbu.
Oil Search executive general manager Gerea Aopi officiated and handed over the facilities to the PNG Government.
“The focus for Oil Search is to improve the lives of our people in remote parts of Papua New Guinea,” he said.
“We recognise the importance of strong, mutual beneficial stakeholder relationships and the role they play in our business success.
“Our commitment is to operate responsibly to make a tangible difference in our communities that include infrastructure delivery,” Aopi said.
“I am pleased to see that the project was delivered successfully under extreme conditions, this demonstrates our commitment to PNG and having quality education for all,” Aopi said.
The latest project included 1295-square-metre perimeter fencing and minor earthworks at the request of Member of Sinasina-Yonggamugl Open Kerenga Kua.
The school was built in 1992 and since then has needed major upgrade to accommodate the growing number of students and teachers.
Bimai High School enrols students from more than seven feeder primary schools.
In 2017, Oil Search managed infrastructure projects worth more than K396 million, including the construction of roads, hospitals and school redevelopments under the (ITCS) partnership with the Government.
