BP in Indonesia
BP has operated for over 35 years in Indonesia, a country home to over 210 million people. Today, we are one of its largest foreign investors with cumulative capital investment to date of over US$5 billion.
Through various heritage companies, BP is one of the largest foreign investors in Indonesia. Activities are dominated by its exploration and production business, notably the Tangguh LNG in West Papua. BP also has downstream interests in petrochemicals and lubricants.
BP Indonesia currently employs over 1,200 people, most of whom work in and around capital of Jakarta or close to our main asset in Papua Barat.
BP in Papua BaratTangguh LNG is BP's most substansial business in Indonesia. It involves the development of 6 gas fields in the Wiriagar, Berau and Muturi PSCs in Bintuni Bay, Papua Barat. Produced through offshore platforms, the gas is brought ashore, processed into liquefied natural gas (LNG) and loaded for shipment to East Asian and North American markets.
Tangguh presents BP with a remarkable opportunity and a great challenge. The gas reserves beneath Bintuni Bay can provide a valuable source of energy, but to reach and extract this energy we will have to address a wide range of environmental and social issues, because the Bintuni Bay area is rich in biodiversity and is one of the lesser developed areas of Indonesia.
