Indonesia plans to sell at least 264 liquefied natural gas (LNG) cargoes throughout 2018, with a capacity of around 150,000 cubic meters of gas each, according to the Upstream Oil and Gas Regulatory Special Task Force (SKKMigas).

As many as 144 cargoes will be shipped from the Bontang LNG plant in East Kalimantan, while the remaining 120 cargoes will come from the Tangguh LNG plant in West Papua.

“However, it must be noted that it is possible that the shipped LNG cargoes do not contain the full capacity of 150,000 cubic meters of gas. The actual figure can be lower than that,” SKKMigas communications head Wisnu Prabawa Taher said on Thursday.

Throughout 2017, the Bontang and Tangguh LNG plants shipped 176 and 111 cargoes, respectively. The capacity of each cargo ranged from 80,000 to 150,000 cubic meters of gas.

In a separate development, state-owned energy giant Pertamina delivered on Thursday its first LNG cargo with a volume of 2 billion British thermal units (bbtu) from the Mahakam block in East Kalimantan to a floating storage and regasification unit (FSRU) in West Java.

The FSRU is operated by PT Nusantara Regas.

Pertamina officially took over Mahakam, Indonesia’s largest gas block, from France’s Total E&P Indonesie and Japan’s Inpex Corporation on Jan. 1. (bbn)
