It appears that while ExxonMobil are adept at having their PR releases published as news (not just in the Post-Courier!) - they cannot stop the dogs of reality from barking. Here is a recent update on the LNG PNG strikes from the Sydney Morning Herald (26/08/2011)
Workers on Strike at PNG LNG
As many as 100 labourers have gone on strike over pay at the ExxonMobil-led Liquefied Natural Gas (LNG) plant on the outskirts of Port Moresby.
In February 2010, construction at another site stopped when four coastal villagers near Port Moresby were killed in a feud over land ownership and LNG-related benefits.
