La’o Hamutuk: The Greater Sunrise Oil and Gas Project
29 April 2010, updated 23 June 2010
LH: http://www.laohamutuk.org/Oil/Sunrise/10Sunrise.htm
"The Greater Sunrise oil and gas field in the Timor Sea has been the subject of exploration, controversy, and negotiations since it was first discovered in 1974. In particular, the question of where to liquefy the natural gas -- converting it into LNG which can be shipped to overseas customers -- has been vociferously debated since Indonesia was forced out of Timor-Leste in 1999. After moving ahead in fits and starts, the Sunrise project is now getting closer to reality. This web page will include information and analysis about the project, especially events in 2010. ... Over the last few months, the discussion over Greater Sunrise has intensified, with Timor-Leste’s government, other Timorese politicians and NGOs, Woodside, the Australian government and many commentators offering their views. Timor-Leste media have been filled with polemics and misinformation regarding the Greater Sunrise gas field and the LNG plant that will go with it. La'o Hamutuk is a Timorese civil society organization which hopes that this project will give the maximum benefit to the Timorese people. We are concerned that many of the reports misrepresent the reality of the situation, which has economic, legal, technical and environmental aspects, not only politics, and we hope that this web page will help people better understand the issue."

"What will result if we bring natural gas to Timor-Leste and construct and operate a gas liquefaction and LNG (liquefied natural gas) shipping facility here? The answer is “it depends.” This article, part of a series derived from La’o Hamutuk’s research report Sunrise LNG In Timor-Leste: Dreams, Realities and Challenges, will explore what it will take to maximize the benefits and minimize the dangers."

La’o Hamutuk Bulletin: What is Liquefied Natural Gas (LNG)?
Vol. 9, No. 2: August 2008
LH: http://www.laohamutuk.org/Bulletin/2008/Aug/bulletinv9n2.html#LNG
"Many people in Timor-Leste, from village residents to top government officials, are discussing the benefits that our country might receive if a gas pipeline is built from Greater Sunrise to Timor-Leste, with an LNG (liquefied natural gas) factory in our country. ... La'o Hamutuk has studied this proposed project for more than two years ... We found that the benefits from this project may be difficult to achieve, and that there are significant risks which Timor-Leste is not yet ready to handle. We also discussed what needs to be done to maximize the good things that a pipeline and LNG plant can bring to our people, and to prevent or reduce the dangers."

La’o Hamutuk Bulletin: La’o Hamutuk brings LNG information to south coast
Vol. 9, No. 3: November 2008
LH: http://www.laohamutuk.org/Bulletin/2008/Nov/bulletinv9n3.html#south
"Up to now, most discussions have been in Dili, far from the south coast where a plant might be built. As people in the south will be most impacted by such a project, they have a right to be involved in discussions and decision-making. Therefore, La’o Hamutuk translated its research report into Bahasa Indonesia, prepared a shorter version in Tetum, and created a slide show (also Tetum) which we presented in August 2008 at workshops in Betano, Lore I, Los Palos, Beaçu and Viqueque. Local community people participated in large numbers, including women and youth, local government authorities (including chefe suco, chefe aldeia, sub-district and district administrators), police, media, NGO and church representatives. Every workshop drew at least 35 people, and often people crowded around the meeting space. We thank everyone for their enthusiastic participation."
