The pipeline would carry gas from the proposed Abadi LNG Terminal to Maluku Island, Indonesia. A plan for the terminal was approved by the Indonesian government in July 2019.[5] In July 2020, Shell announced that it planned to exit the project and divest its 35% stake, IJGlobal reported in May 2021 that the Indonesian government was actively looking for investors to acquire Shell's stake in Abadi gas field and LNG terminal by the end of 2021. According to a government official, the project would likely face further delays if Shell's divestment did not happen timely.[2][6]

In July 2023, it was reported that Shell was is in advanced negotiations to divest its equity to a partnership of Indonesia’s national oil company Pertamina and its Malaysian counterpart Petronas.[4]
