Jakarta: Indonesia’s third LNG importing terminal is set to open shortly with the imminent arrival of the 146,000 cu m Tangguh Towuti vessel. The converted facility at Arun will raise Indonesia’s overall regasification capacity to just over 9mtpa.
The conversion of the Arun liquefaction plant to a regasfication terminal adds 3mtpa to the nation’s two existing floating terminals. Arun is expected to take 14 to 16 cargoes this year.
Arun Regas sits on the northern tip of Sumatra island, in Aceh province. Pertamina owns a 70% share of the new joint venture, with the remainder held by the government of Aceh.
