Tangguh LNG Project


Tangguh LNG Project

n 1994, a rich gas field was discovered in the bay of West Papua State, about 3,000 km from Jakarta, the capital city of Indonesia. The recoverable natural gas reserves were at least 15 trillion cubic feet (TCF). One TCF is equivalent to one million tons of LNG per year for 20 years. President Suharto named the gas field “Tangguh,” which means “powerful” in Indonesian.


An estimated 10,000 jobs were generated during different phases of the project, giving a boost to both the Indonesian and Papua Barat Province economies. The project helps to meet the rising energy demand in the country as most of the produced LNG is sold to the state electric utility.
