INDUSTRY.co.id - Jakarta - PT Nusantara Regas builds Muara Karang Peaker gas meter to optimize gas supply that supplies the power plant.
President Director of PT Nusantara Regas Tammy Meidharma said it has supplied gas to the power plant owned by PT Pembangkitan Jawa Bali in Muara Karang for five years. Meanwhile, it is preparing the facility to distribute gas with a capacity of 135 million cubic feet per day (million standard cubic feet per day / MMscfd).
"This project will prepare gas distribution facilities with a maximum capacity of up to 135 MMscfd," he said in an official statement on Monday (11/09/2017).
It will connect the gas pipeline at the existing onshore receiving facility (ORF) with a 12-inch pipeline to be connected from the connection point through the existing support pipeline located north of ORF.
The pipeline will be connected to a metering location located between the Priok Package A and ORF Offshore North West Java (ONWJ) Blocks. The measuring instrument is targeted to start operating in October 2018 with a working period of 14 months.
In addition to supplying gas for Muara Karang Steam Power Plant (PLTGU), Nusantara Regas supplies the Muara Karang-Tanjung Priok gas facility operated by PT Pertamina Hulu Energi ONWJ.
In 2017, Nusantara Regas prepares additional gas supply to Indonesia Power Block V Tanjung Priok which plans to operate in 2019.
