The presence of police and mobile brigade soldiers at construction sites
for the PNG LNG (liquefied natural gas) project in Papua New Guinea --
majority owned by Exxon Mobil -- is an indication of the community
discontent surrounding the project.

Fears have been raised that conflict over the project could provoke
violence like that of Bougainville in the 1990s.
