This work has taken place over the past two weekends and was expected to be complete by today.
The FSVU Sergeant Eremugo Job said the hut was a waiting area for families who came to the unit for help. He said it was built two years ago through the PNG-Australia Policing Partnership but had weathered over time and was in much need of repair.
"The floor boards have holes and is a safety hazard to our visitors, rain also gets into the waiting area. There is some work still needs to be done and I am pleased that these young ExxonMobil PNG staff have come to assist us," Job said.
The volunteers came from the company's head office, the PNG LNG Plant site near
Port Moresby and also staff on field break from the Hides Gas Conditioning Plant in
Exxon employee Andrew Hemetsberger said he enjoyed doing the renovations.
"Doing this gives me exposure and experience. It has also given me a feeling of accomplishment that I helped the community in some way."
