The Natuda D field, or East Natuna field, was discovered in 1973 by Agip Oil of Italy.[2] In 2017 ExxonMobil pulled out of a consortium with Pertamina Gas (now owned by PGN Persero) and Thailand PTT to develop the field and Natuna D Alpha-Batam-Duri Gas Pipeline.[3] One reason for the delay in development has been the high content of carbon-dioxide (CO2) in the field's gas, around 60-70% which needs to be separated.[3] The project appears to have been cancelled.
