State-owned gas distributor PT Perusahaan Gas Negara’s (PGN) floating storage and regasification unit (FSRU) in Lampung will receive two additional shipments of liquefied natural gas (LNG) from the Tangguh plant in Bintuni, Papua.
“We are still waiting for the completion of administrative processes at the Upstream Oil and Gas Regulatory Special Task Force [SKKMigas] and the Energy and Mineral Resources Ministry in reference to the shipment of two cargos of LNG,” said PGN LNG Indonesia president director Nisi Setyobudi as quoted by Antara news agency in Jakarta on Wednesday.
He said the two shipments were the second and third deliveries since July, when the first was made.
Nisi added that the second LNG cargo would leave port on Oct. 20 and take about a week to arrive at the Lampung receiving terminal.
He estimated that the second shipment would arrive on Oct. 26 and the third on Nov. 22.
Once shipments arrived, Nisi said, the LNG is re-gasified for distribution to consumers. Among the consumers of gas supplied by the FSRU Lampung is state-owned electricity company PLN.
