First LNG cargo from Jangkrik in Indonesia

22. Jun. 2017

The partners in the Jangkrik license in Indonesia announced today that the first shipment of LNG left the Bontang gas liquefaction plant in East Kalimantan.

Eni is the operator of the Jangkrik field. ENGIE E&P has a 33.334% participating interest.

The LNG cargo of 22,500 m3 size will be delivered to Bali in Indonesia, as part of a LNG Long Term sales contract signed with PT Pertamina (PERSERO).

“We are proud of this new milestone reached only one month and a half after the start of production and with an excellent HSE track record. Jangkrik is the largest investment ever undertaken by ENGIE E&P and will bring significant production for ENGIE E&P,” says Maria Moraeus Hanssen, CEO ENGIE E&P.

The first LNG cargo shipment follows the first gas on 15 May 2017 and the first gas export on 29 May 2017. The gas, once processed onboard the Floating Production Unit (FPU), flows via a 79-km pipeline to the Onshore Receiving Facility and then through the East Kalimantan Transportation System to reach the Bontang gas liquefaction plant. The FPU is connected to ten deep-water subsea wells and the production will gradually reach its plateau at 450 million scf/day (equivalent to 83,000 boe/d).

“Jangkrik is one of our major projects. We will continue working closely with the operator Eni and our other partners on this project,” adds Moraeus Hanssen.
