A Japanese consortium including shipping major Mitsui OSK Lines (MOL) will build and operate an FSRU to be deployed in Indonesia. The Jawa 1 project features Indonesia’s energy giant Pertamina, trading houses Marubeni and Sojitz as well as MOL.
The FSRU will operate in West Java once it has been built and it will send gas to a local power plant, marking Asia’s first gas-to-power project using an FSRU.
The 170,000 cu m FSRU will be built at South Korea’s Samsung Heavy Industries. No price has been revealed for the vessel.
The FSRU will be placed 14km offshore in the Cilamaya Sea, east of Jakarta. The power plant will be newly constructed on shore near the FSRU site, and connected to the FSRU via a pipeline about 21 km long.
