bp hits milestone first cargo shipment from Indonesia’s expanded Tangguh LNG facility


The first cargo of liquefied natural gas (LNG) produced by the new third liquefaction train at the Tangguh LNG facility, in Papua Barat, Indonesia, has set sail for Indonesia’s state-owned power generator PT PLN (Persero) in Arun, Nanggroe Aceh Darussalam province, according to bp.

Having left Tangguh on the 18th October, the delivery will mark the start of full commercial operations at the expanded facility, which will add 3.8m tonnes per annum (mtpa) of LNG production capacity to the existing two-train facility – bringing total plant capacity to 11.4mtpa.

With more than 13,500 workers involved in the project’s development at its peak, the Tangguh expansion also included construction of two offshore platforms, 13 new production wells, an LNG loading facility and supporting infrastructure.

Calling the start-up of Train 3 a ‘proud day’ for bp and its Tangguh partners, Anja-Isabel Dotzenrath, EVP, Gas and Low Carbon Energy at bp, said, “I would like to thank the Government of Indonesia for our strong partnership and their continued support that has made this possible.”
