C1 - La'o Hamutuk OilWeb: CD-ROM on
East Timor’s Oil and Gas
Oil and gas under the Timor Sea between East Timor and Australia are essential
to East Timor’s economic future.
Although these resources will bring much-needed money to East Timor, they
also bring danger. Around the world, oil and gas development often comes
with war, corruption, dictatorship, repression and environmental destruction.
To help explain these issues, La’o Hamutuk has compiled information and
documents in a “website” which does not require connection to the internet.
Most of OilWeb is English, although it includes much in Bahasa Indonesia
and some Tetum and Portuguese.
Overviews, information and analysis about history, companies, geology,
finances, development options, economics, and environmental consequences.
Complete text of all treaties and agreements relating to Timor
Sea oil development and boundaries since 1971, as well as the U.N. Convention
on the Law of the Sea.
Movie “Don’t Rob Their Future” (English, 17 min.) which explains
the boundary issue in non-technical terms.
Audio drama (Tetum, 15 min.) of the history of Australia-Indonesia-East
Timor oil and boundary negotiations.
Profiles of oil companies and oil fields, including annual reports,
financial information, and technical and background information, as well
as how they present their involvement in East Timor.
Fact Sheets from the governments, UNTAET and the oil companies
involved in the Timor Sea.
Australian Parliament hearings and debate on the Timor Sea Treaty
OilWatch Network information about consequences and popular resistance,
including descriptions of situations, problems, and resistance from many
countries in Asia and around the world.
