Tangguh LNG and expansion
Tangguh LNG is the first fully-vertically integrated LNG operation in Indonesia, 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 3rd LNG train.
It is a major multinational project involving the development of six gas fields in the Wiriagar, Berau and Muturi PSCs in Bintuni Bay, Papua Barat. The gas reserves were discovered in the mid-1990s by Atlantic Richfield Co. (ARCO).
Tangguh is an integral part of the community in Papua: on-track with our commitment to have an 85% Papuan team by 2029; and developing sustainable commerce for the mutual benefit of the region and Tangguh.
Our Vision for Tangguh is to:
- Be an industry leader in process and personal safety
- Be a high-reliability LNG producer
- Develop capability and energise our team
- Reduce risk and raise efficiency in our business, every day
Tangguh LNG is well placed to serve the demands of Asian gas markets. Current LNG production from Tangguh comes from two LNG trains each with a capacity of 3.8 mtpa/700 mmscfd. Sufficient resources now exist to support the development of a third LNG train with a capacity of 3.8 mtpa. The gas for the third LNG train and also in support of trains 1 and 2 production will come from a phased offshore development of new shallow water platforms, new pipelines to shore, new infield pipelines, a new integrated onshore receiving facility and new development wells.
