Papua New Guinea's Prime Minister says the country must build on the success of the LNG gas project.

At a dinner to mark the conclusion of the construction phase of the project, and the commencement of production and exports, Peter O'Neill described it as the most successful project ever undertaken in PNG.

"We can now proudly point to a massive resource development that has taken place. Infrastructure has been built, thousands of jobs have been provided for people and of course the revenue that will come as a result of this project. We must build on this success to deliver economic and social services that our country demands and our future generations demand."
