Background

The Bontang LNG plant, operated by PT Badak in East Kalimantan, Bontang, Indonesia, processes the gas from a large reserve discovered in 1972 at Badak Field, East Kalimantan, as well as the Samberah, Nilam and Mutiara fields. It has become one of the largest liquifaction plants in the world, increasing the LNG production from initial capacity of 3.3 millions tons in 1977 to more than 21 million tons of LNG by 2004. Most of the gas is exported to Japan, South Korea and Taiwan.[6][4]

According to the International Gas Union's "2020 World LNG Report", trains A and B were no longer operating.[5]

According to the International Group of Liquefied Natural Gas Importers' (GIIGNL) 2021 Annual Report, the Bontang LNG terminal was exporting 11.5 million tonnes per year (mtpa) across 4 trains, presumably trains E, F, G, & H.[3]

Expansion Project

Prior to 2004, an expansion project was proposed which would have added 2.95 mtpa to the terminal via a new train, called train I.[1]

Train I was not included in the International Gas Union's "2020 World LNG Report",[5] and there have been no development updates since the initial proposal. Therefore, the train I expansion project is presumed to be cancelled.
