Background

Tangguh LNG Terminal is an LNG terminal in West Papua, Indonesia.[2] Train 1 of 3.8 mtpa was completed in 2009, and train 2 of an additional 3.8 mtpa in 2010. An additional train of 3.8 mtpa is under construction and planned for 2022.[4][6]

In August 2021, Indonesian oil and gas regulator SKK Migas approved the plan for the development of a carbon capture utilization and storage (CCUS) project at the Tangguh LNG export complex.[1]

Delay due to COVID-19

In March 2020 Indonesia's upstream regulator the Special Task Force for Upstream Oil and Gas Business Activities (SKK Migas) announced that construction of the terminal's third train would be delayed because of the COVID-19 pandemic. Physical distancing has been established among workers at the site, leading to a decline from 13,000 workers to 10,000 workers in the third week of March, with plans to reduce on-site workers further to a core group of 3,000.[7] The 3.8-mtpa expansion to the 7.6-mtpa terminal was originally scheduled to be commissioned in Q3 2020 but was delayed to Q3 2021 because of two tsunamis in 2018.[7]
