SKK Migas announced that it has approved the plan of development for Ubadari Field and Vorwata carbon capture utilization and storage at Tangguh LNG Project in Papua Barat, Indonesia, says an article published in LNG Industry.
About the Project
Ubadari field development is fast-tracked as a result of the successful appraisal program and will be produced via Normally Unmanned Installations (NUI) connected to the offshore pipeline to the Tangguh facility. Meanwhile, the Vorwata CCUS development will see approximately 25 million t of CO2 injected back to the Vorwata reservoir to eliminate carbon venting and provide incremental gas production through enhanced gas recovery (EGR). The CO2 injection will remove up to 90% of the reservoir-associated CO2, currently representing nearly half of the Tangguh LNG emissions.
Starts in mid-2022
The front-end engineering and design (FEED) for Ubadari field development and Vorwata CCUS will start in mid-2022 subject to Tangguh Partners’ and further SKK Migas’ approval, with an estimated project start-up in 2026 subsequent to a final investment decision.
Tangguh Partners will contribute to significantly reduce emissions through the Tangguh Project, in line with the Indonesian government’s effort to meet its Nationally Determined Contribution (NDC) commitment under the Paris Agreement, while serving as a National Strategic Project by the Government of Indonesia.
