The Gulf of Papua dominates the centre of Gulf Province, which
stretches along the southern coast of the mainland. The Great Papuan Plateau lies in the west
of the province while a number of rivers including the Turama, Kikori and Purari all converge in
a large delta area on the coast. The Albert and Stanithorp are in the east of the province.
Some high incomes can be made from selling and betel nut in the markets in Port Moresby,
otherwise most incomes in the province are low to moderate. Some forestry operations and the
Kikori-Kutubu Oil pipeline provide limited wages. Income-earning opportunities could increase with
the Liquefied Natural Gas
Project. A road runs from Kerema to Port Moresby, but the quality is poor between Kerema and Malalaua.
Instead, many people use sea transport, often in dangerous conditions. New road developments around
Kikori and leading up to Lake Kutubu in Southern Highlands will serve the planned Liquefied Natural Gas Project,
which may increase transport infrastructure in the area
