I have heard the same, though I have no clue as to the time table. New Caledonia has very strong diplomatic ties through out the Pacific, so assuming she does eventually gain independence she will get plenty of help from her neighbors getting on her feet as a new nation.*their, not there.
Also, AFAIK, two additional independence referendums are scheduled to be held in New Caledonia within the next several years.
