Tangguh Liquefied Natural Gas Expansion Project

The Tangguh natural gas liquefaction facility (Tangguh) has been operating in West Papua, Indonesia's least developed region, since 2009. It currently consists of two trains (Train 1 and 2) that were financed with ADB, JBIC and international commercial bank support in 2007. Each train is designed to produce 3.8 million metric tons per annum (mtpa) of liquefied natural gas (LNG) each. The LNG is currently sold to buyers in Indonesia, the PRC, Japan, Korea, and USA. The Tangguh Expansion consists of a third 3.8 mtpa LNG train (Train 3) and associated offshore and onshore production facilities and supporting infrastructure. Train 3 is expected to commence production in 2020, and has committed 40% of production to PLN (the Indonesian national electric utility) under a long term sales and purchase agreement (SPA).

Myanmar

Myingyan Natural Gas Power Project

The Project entails the construction and operation of a 225 MW combined cycle gas turbine power plant in Myingyan, approximately 500 km North of Yangon and 90 km West of Mandalay. The project will improve the reliability and stability of Myanmar's power supply at a competitive tariff, while addressing power shortages and helping avoid future brownouts that hinder economic growth.
