UK-based energy giant and LNG player BP will shut down the second liquefaction train at the Tangguh LNG plant in Indonesia for two months.
Train 2 will be shut down for maintenance, Reuters reports, citing Dharmawan Samsu, BP’s Indonesia country head.
The production capacity of the second liquefaction train is 3.8 million tons of LNG per year.
BP, the operator of the Tangguh LNG project, together with other partners reached a final investment decision to build a third train at the facility.
The third train will add additional 3.8 mtpa of production capacity to the existing facility, bringing total plant capacity to 11.4 mtpa.
In 2016, the plant shipped a total of 119 LNG cargoes, the highest ever since the production started in 2009.
The Tangguh LNG facility is located in Papua Barat Province of Indonesia and consists of offshore gas production facilities supplying two 3.8mtpa liquefaction trains that have been in operation since 2009.
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%).
