Indonesian oil and gas regulator SKK Migas has approved the next stage of development for the Tangguh liquefied natural gas (LNG) project in Papua Barat, Indonesia.
Operated by energy giant bp, the Plan of Development (POD) applies to the Ubadari Field and Vorwata Carbon Capture Utiilisation and Storage (CCUS) project, which is expected to generate a further recovery of 1.3 trillion cubic feet (Tcf) of gas.
The fast-tracked Ubadari field development is planned to be produced via the connection of normally unmanned installations by offshore pipeline to the Tangguh LNG facilities.
The technology involved in the project is set to make the bp-operated Tangguh project one of the lowest greenhouse gas (GHG) intensity LNG plants in the world. This is made possible by a 90% reduction of reservoir-associated carbon dioxide (CO2) that is currently vented. Around 25 million tonnes of CO2 injected back into the Vorwata reservoir will allow for this reduction. Via enhanced gas recovery (EGR), this injection will also provide incremental gas production.
