Indonesia’s Bontang, Tangguh export 82.2 cargoes in first half of 2019
Indonesia has reportedly exported 82.2 cargoes of LNG from Bontang and Tangguh plants in the first half of the year.
Indonesia exported 82.2 standard cargoes of liquefied natural gas from Bontang and Tangguh plants during January-June 2019.
Citing upstream oil and gas regulator SKK Migas’ senior official Arief Setiawan Handoko, Reuters reported that the Bontang LNG plant produced 57.2 standard cargoes of LNG in Bontang LNG Plant from January-June 2019, compared to 78.3 standard LNG cargoes during the first six months of 2018.
From Tangguh LNG plant, Indonesia produced 56.8 standard cargoes during the same period, compared to 60.8 standard LNG cargoes during the first six months of last year.
Indonesia’s overall domestic use of LNG amounted to 31.8 standard cargoes for the first six of months of 2019, with 18.7 originating from Bontang Plant and 13.1 from Tangguh.
The Bontang LNG plant in Indonesia is an eight-train LNG development operated by PT Badak Natural Gas Liquefaction Company, which comprises Petramina, Vico, Japan Indonesia LNG, and Total.
The other facility in question, the Tangguh LNG plant, is located in the Bintuni Bay area of West Papua.
It was brought online in July 2009 with a nameplate capacity of 7.6 mmtpa. The plant and the Tangguh JV partnership, comprising the Berau, Muturi, and Wiriagar PSCs, is operated by BP.
The LNG plant has two operational trains of 3.8 mmtpa, but BP is currently expanding the Tangguh LNG export facility adding a liquefaction unit of 3.8 million tons per annum (mtpa). Once the expansion is complete, the project will have a total production capacity to 11.4 mtpa.
