Eni carried out today its first shipment of liquefied natural gas (LNG) produced for the Indonesian domestic market by the Jangkrik field, which is located in Indonesia in deep water. The 22,500 m3 cargo is headed to Bali, where it will be unloaded as part of a long-term LNG contract signed with PT Pertamina (PERSERO) in June 2015. Eni’s CEO Claudio Descalzi said: "Jangkrik is a project developed with an excellent time-to-market, started-up ahead of schedule, exploiting synergies with the existing Bontang terminal and other neighboring gas discoveries. These can be put into production within the existing value chain. I am very proud of my team and the relationships built on the base on these successes with Pertamina, the Authorities and all the stakeholders".
Eni started gas production at Jangkrik ahead of schedule on 15 May 2017. Gas produced is processed onboard the FPU ‘Jangkrik’ and then flows to the Onshore Receiving Facility. It then finally reaches the Bontang gas liquefaction plant through the East Kalimantan Transportation System. The LNG produced is sold under long-term contracts, partly to PT Pertamina and partly to Eni itself, which will sell it as part of the development of its international LNG portfolio, in line with the strategy announced in February.
