BP in Indonesia

An enduring commitment to Indonesia.

For over four decades, BP has been working in partnership with Indonesia. We first came to Indonesia with a commitment to grow the country’s energy. Today, BP is one of Indonesia’s largest foreign investors and our commitment remains as strong as ever

What we do

Activities are dominated by our exploration and production businesses, particularly the Tangguh LNG plant. Tangguh LNG is the first fully-vertically integrated LNG operation in Indonesia, and also one of its largest LNG facilities. The existing 2-train facility produces 7.6 million tons per year of LNG from 1.5 billion cubic feet per day (250 mboed) of offshore gas production. Producing gas from Papua Barat offshore, Tangguh contributes approximately 3% of global LNG production. Work is now ongoing to expand the plant through addition of a third LNG train.

Beyond that, every BP main stream is also represented here – from upstream, to downstream and petrochemicals.

VICO Indonesia is the first company to export liquefied natural gas (LNG) in Indonesia and is now also actively exploring for Coal Bed Methane (CBM). VICO is a joint venture of which BP has a 26.25% interest. Most of the natural gas is delivered to one of the largest LNG plants in the world. Smaller volumes of gas are supplied to fertilizer and methanol plants. VICO is also the first company in Indonesia to utilize CBM gas to provide electricity for domestic use.

In early 2014 BP agreed to purchase all interests held by Japan’s Mitsui Chemicals, Inc. (MCI) and Mitsui & Co. Ltd. (MBK) in PT Amoco Mitsui PTA Indonesia (AMI), a joint venture for production and sales of purified terephthalic acid (PTA), bringing total BP shares in the company to 100%. The new company, PT BP Petrochemicals Indonesia produces 530,000 tons a year of PTA, a raw material for polyester which is used in clothing, food and drink packaging and certain industrial applications.

Castrol first entered the Indonesian market in 1970. It is now a brand of industrial and automotive lubricants, which has been recognized as a top international brand in Indonesia. Most of Castrol’s motorcycle and passenger car lubricant products are manufactured at Castrol's world-class, fully automated 80,000 MT/annum lube oil blending plant in Merak, Banten.

PT Jasatama Petroindo is the representation of BP’s supply and trading business in Indonesia. It provides competitively-priced fuels of consistently reliable quality for the Indonesian domestic market.

Sustainable Development Programs

BP is working to ensure that Indonesia and Papua Barat benefit economically from the continual development of the Tangguh Plant.

In addition to this, BP is directly supporting development by enhancing its integrated social programs in education, health, livelihood, good governance, community relations, capacity building, and Papuan enterprise. 

To date, Tangguh has invested more than US$25 million in its Integrated Social Programs.
