What we do

BP’s main operation in Indonesia is the Tangguh LNG plant in the Papua Barat province. Tangguh LNG is the first fully-vertically integrated LNG operation in the country, producing gas from Papua Barat offshore and delivering LNG to customers around Asia and the US.

Tangguh started up in 2009 and is operating at design capacity; with work now ongoing to expand the plant through addition of a third LNG train.

We are also continuing to leverage BP’s position through exploration and renewal access in Indonesia and the Southeast Asia region.

Every BP mainstream business is also represented here – from upstream, downstream, and petrochemicals.

VICO Indonesia is a joint venture between BP and ENI. Its oil and gas production is centered in the Sanga-Sanga PSC, East Kalimantan. Most of the natural gas is delivered to PT Badak NGL - one of the largest LNG plants in the world,. VICO Indonesia is the first company to export LNG in Indonesia and is now also actively exploring for Coal Bed Methane (CBM). VICO is also the first company in Indonesia to utilize CBM gas to provide electricity for domestic use.

Castrol is recognized as a top international brand in Indonesia. Today it produces and markets a variety of lubricant oil for industries and automotive. Most of Castrol’s lubricants products are manufactured at its world-class, fully automated 80,000 MT/annum lube oil blending plant in Merak, Banten.

PT Amoco-Mitsui PTA Indonesia (AMI) is a 50/50 joint venture between BP and Mitsui. It produces 530,000 tons of Purified Terephtalic Acid (PTA) a year, a key material for the manufacturing of polyester resin for bottling/packaging industry.

Our social commitment

BP has a strong presence in Papua Barat where we employ more than 600 staff and workers, and where BP has adopted a fully integrated approach to development and impact on local communities.

We strive to make a meaningful and sustainable impact by investing in the community in ways that benefit both the local people and BP. An impact that is relevant to local needs aligned with BP’s business, and undertaken in partnership with local organizations.

BP’s integrated social programs focus on five key areas: good governance, education, livelihood, community relations, and health.

To date, a wide range of programs have been implemented, including a community-based approach to security and a commitment to building the capacity and skills of national as well as local Papuan employees.
