UK-based energy giant BP has signed a deal to supply LNG to the Indonesian power utility Perusahaan Listrik Negara (PLN).
BP is to supply 16 LNG cargoes per year from its Tangguh LNG project in Bintuni Bay to PLN over 2020-2035.
The Tangguh LNG facility consists of offshore gas production facilities supplying two 3.8 mtpa liquefaction trains that have been in operation since 2009.
In July last year, the project partners have made a final investment decision to build a third train at the facility. The third liquefaction train will add 3.8 mtpa of production capacity to the existing facility, bringing total plant capacity to 11.4 mtpa. First production from the third train is expected in 2020.
Besides BP, the other partners in the Tangguh production sharing contract are MI Berau (16.30%), CNOOC Muturi (13.90%), Nippon Oil Exploration (Berau) (12.23%), KG Berau Petroleum and KG Wiriagar Petroleum Ltd (10.00%), Indonesia Natural Gas Resources Muturi (7.35%), and Talisman Wiriagar Overseas (3.06%).
