PHOTO: BP presses on with Tangguh expansion project

Oil giant BP is making progress with its Tangguh expansion project in Indonesia, scheduled to come online in 2020. 

The oil company on Thursday shared images through its social media channels of one of the platforms being built for the expansion project, which is due to start up by mid-2020. The platform is named Wiriagar Deep A.

Tangguh LNG is a unitized development of six gas fields located in the Wiriagar, Berau and Muturi Production Sharing Contracts (PSCs) in Bintuni Bay, Papua Barat. Tangguh started production in 2009, just four years after its initial sanction by the Government of Indonesia, and is operating at design capacity with work now ongoing to expand the plant through the addition of a third train.

The Tangguh Expansion Project will add a third LNG process train (Train 3) and 3.8 million tons per annum (mtpa) of production capacity to the existing facility, bringing total plant capacity to 11.4 mtpa. The project also includes two offshore platforms, 13 new production wells, an expanded LNG loading facility, and supporting infrastructure.

BP made the Final Investment Decision (FID) for the development of the Tangguh Expansion Project in June 2016. In July of the same year, BP awarded two new engineering and construction contracts for the Tangguh LNG expansion project to the Italian contractor Saipem.

The first contract was for the engineering, procurement, construction and installation of offshore facilities, consisting of two unmanned platforms and subsea pipelines.

The second contract for the construction of an onshore LNG process train, utilities, offsites, an LNG jetty and associated infrastructure was awarded to CSTS, a joint operation led by Indonesian EPC Contractor Tripatra with Chiyoda, Saipem, and Suluh Ardhi Engineering.
