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.[1][2]
