BP’s third Tangguh LNG train nearing completion

BP’s Train 3 project at the Tangguh LNG facility in Indonesia is nearing completion and is still expected to start operations next year.

Operator BP and its partners are expanding the 7.6 mtpa facility in Papua Barat province with the addition of the third liquefaction train with a capacity of 3.8 mtpa.

Besides the expansion, BP is also working on a carbon capture utilization and storage project at the facility.

BP and the Chiyoda-Saipem-Tripatra-Suluh Ardhi Engineering (CSTS) consortium, the project’s EPC contractor, originally expected to launch the expansion project in the third quarter of 2020.

However, BP delayed the launch of the project several times due to the Covid-19 pandemic.

Earlier this year, BP’s chief executive Bernard Looney said during the company’s second-quarter results call that BP hopes to start the third train by the end of next year.

BP did not provide any updates regarding the project in its third-quarter results, but Chiyoda confirmed in its recent quarterly report that the project would go online next year.

“Construction is in the final stage and is approaching completion,” Chiyoda said.

Recent local media reports said, citing Indonesia’s regulator SKK Migas, that the project has entered into the commissioning stage and that it could enter into operation in the first quarter of the next year.

BP Berau and its affiliates in Indonesia hold a 40.22 percent interest in the Tangguh project.

Other Tangguh production sharing contract partners are MI Berau, CNOOC Muturi, Nippon Oil Exploration, KG Berau Petroleum, Indonesia Natural Gas Resources Muturi, and KG Wiriagar Petroleum.
