Indonesia has reportedly exported 35.9 cargoes of LNG from Bontang and Tangguh plants in the first quarter of the year.
Indonesia exported 35.9 standard cargoes of liquefied natural gas from Bontang and Tangguh plants during January-April 2019.
Citing data from upstream oil and gas regulator SKK Migas, Reuters reported that the Bontang LNG plant shipped 18.2 cargoes of LNG, while Tangguh plant shipped 17.7 cargoes.
The two plants also supplied a combined 17.3 cargoes of LNG to domestic buyers this year up to April.
There were 11 uncommitted cargoes of LNG from Bontang after PLN canceled its order.
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.
