When it comes to contractors, MSL is one of the three major Umbrella Landowner Companies (ULCs) in Western Province. The other two are Tabubil Development Corporation (TDC) and Lotic Bige Limited (LBL) of the Lower Ok Tedi area.

Within these ULCs, we work with a range of independent and associated/subsidiary companies that provide services to the Ok Tedi Mine, the largest mine in the country.
