Inpex: Abadi LNG gets environmental nod from Indonesia

Inpex of Japan said that its unit Inpex Masela has received an environmental permit from the Government of Indonesia based on the Environmental and Social Impact Assessment of the Abadi LNG project which is currently being prepared for development utilizing the floating LNG (FLNG) concept.

Environmental and Social Impact Assessment is known locally as AMDAL (Analisis Mengenai Dampak Lingkungan).

Inpex bought a 100% participating interest in the Masela Block in November 1998 through an open bid conducted by the Indonesian Government.

The company proceeded with exploratory activity as the operator, and an exploratory well drilled in 2000 discovered the Abadi gas field.

Subsequently, six appraisal wells were drilled (two in 2002 and four in 2007–2008), all of which confirmed the presence of gas and condensate column.

The Indonesian Government granted its approval to the plan of development for Stage-I (POD-1) for a floating LNG with a capacity of 2.5 million tons per year of LNG in December 2010.
