Tangguh Independent Advisory Panel
Senator George Mitchell, a member of the first TIAP walking with the villagers, Taroy Village, 2004
The Tangguh Independent Advisory Panel (TIAP) was established in early 2002 to provide external advice to senior decision-makers regarding non-commercial aspects of the Tangguh LNG Project.The Panel was chaired by former U.S. Senator George Mitchell and includes Lord Hannay of Chiswick from the U.K., Ambassador Sabam Siagian from Jakarta, and the Reverend Herman Saud from Jayapura.
In July 2009 a new Panel was appointed with Pak Augustinus Rumansara based in Jayapura. In June 2011 he was joined by former United States Senate Majority Leader Tom Daschle who will chair the new TIAP.
In recognition of the work of the Tangguh Lenders Group and the start of Tangguh operations – the new TIAP’s focus will be to offer advice to BP on developments, and Tangguh’s performance, in the matter of the non-commercial aspects of the Project - while not duplicating the existing Tangguh Lenders Group’s independent external review procedures. The Tangguh Lenders Group (represented by the Asian Development Bank, Japan Bank for International Cooperation and Mizuho Corporate Bank) have established an External Panel and this is staffed by independent experts who visit regularly and publish their reviews (on the ADB website) of compliance with issues connected to safety; environment; resettlement; indigenous people and progress with social programmes. With the exception of the focus on resettlement (whose physical aspects has been completed) the reviews continue to 2021.
