Indonesia: Donggi-Senoro LNG Project on Track

Construction work on the Donggi-Senoro LNG project in Central Sulawesi in Indonesia is ahead of schedule, PT Medco Energi Internasional said.

Work on the project is 33 percent complete and the plant could complete its first LNG delivery in late 2014 as planned,  the Jakarta Post reported, citing Eka Satria, director for asset development at Medco EP.

Donggi-Senoro is the largest infrastructure project in Indonesia after the Tangguh LNG plant in Papua. This is the first LNG project whose players are all Asians,” he said.

Eka also said that in March the company will announce the winner of the tender process for the construction of production facilities at the Senoro gas block, which will supply 250 million standard cubic feet of gas per day (mmscfd) to the Donggi-Senoro LNG plant.

Four consortiums have passed the final phase of the tender. They are IKPT and Petrofac, Adhi Karya and Hyundai, Tripatra and Samsung, and Rekaya Industri and Daewoo,” he said.

The Donggi-Senoro LNG project calls for the construction of a single train LNG processing plant and associated support facilities.

The single train will have a capacity of approximately 2 million tons of LNG per year.

The plant will be located at Luwuk, Central Sulawesi, in Indonesia and feed gas to the plant will be supplied by the gas fields of Senoro-Toili and Matindok in the region.
