Jakarta: Delays in construction are likely to push back the start of production at the Abadi gas field in eastern Indonesia by a year to 2019, according to Jakarta’s oil and gas regulator. The field is operated by Japan’s Inpex. The Abadi floating LNG terminal has been designed with a 2.5m tonne annual capacity.
“Inpex looks like it will push back to 2019 because of construction issues affecting the development of the (Abadi) field,” Gde Pradnyana, secretary of regulator SKKMigas, told local media yesterday. [26/06/13]
