BP Indonesia to Shut One Tangguh LNG Train for Maintenance
BP Indonesia plans to shut one LNG train at its Tangguh plant in West Papua at the end of July for 30 days for planned maintenance.

Tangguh, which consists of two LNG trains each with a capacity of 3.8 mtpa, is operated by BP Indonesia and the company holds a 37.16% interest in the LNG project.
