Indonesian gas pipeline starts production ahead of schedule
Natural gas has started to flow ahead of schedule through a pipeline associated with Eni’s Jangkrik Development Project, offshore Indonesia.
A 79-km subsea pipeline, constructed by Eni, is transporting the gas from a floating production unit onshore before entering the East Kalimantan Transportation System and onto the Bontang gas liquefaction plant.
Production is coming from 10 deep-water wells in the Jangkrik and Jangkrik North East gas fields, located in the Muara Bakau block, Kutei basin, in the Makassar Strait.
“We are very proud of what we have achieved with the Jangkrik Development Project,” said Eni CEO Claudio Descalzi.
“The completion of the project and the start-up of production ahead of schedule further confirm Eni’s strategy and global capabilities.
“Furthermore, it provides two opportunities for the Jangkrik floating production unit to become a hub for the development of our nearby gas discovery Merakes (Eni 85 per cent, Pertamina 15 per cent), which could start production within the next two years.
“We will consolidate our near field exploration strategy and operating model and maximise the integrated development of our projects also in Indonesia,” he said.
Eni has operated in Indonesia since 2001 and has a large portfolio of assets in exploration, production, and development.
