INDUSTRY.co.id - Kutai Kertanegara - The Jangkrik Field gas production facility in Eni Muara Bakau's onshore receiving facility (ORF) area is able to increase national gas production by five percent.
"The five percent is about 4 million US dollars for the budget savings," said Head of Special Unit for Upstream Oil and Gas Business Activities (SKK Migas) Amin Sunaryadi after inaugurating the facility in Handil Baru Village, Samboja Sub-district, Kutai Kartanegara Regency, Kalimantan East, Tuesday (31/10/2017)
The target of lifting or 2017 ready gas production is 6,440 MMscfd and the realization in the third quarter is 6,367 MMscfd. For oil and gas lifting the realization is 1,934 Mboepd.
The project includes Jangkrik North East and Jangkrik fields located on the Muara Bakau block, Kutai Basin, in the deepwater waters of the Makassar Strait. The production is produced through ten subsea wells connected to FPJ Cricket and has reached 600 million cubic feet per day (mmscfd) or equivalent to 100,000 barrels of oil equivalent per day (boed).
The success of this project is significant to increase domestic gas supply and meet the target of gas lifting by 2017 at 1.15 million barrels of oil equivalent per day and 2018 of 1.2 million. The government is targeting an increase in domestic gas usage. In 2017, domestic gas allocation is 62 percent.
In May 2017, the production of Jangkrik gas at 150 million cubic feet per day, until the end of October 2017 has reached 600 million cubic feet per day.
Jangkrik field production facility today Tuesday (31/10) was inaugurated by Minister of ESDM Ignasius Jonan. The facility is an integral part of the Jangkrik Complex development project operated by Eni Muara Bakau as the Contractor of Cooperation Contract (KKKS).
Production of gas from Jangkrik will supply LNG to domestic market as well as export market so as to contribute significantly to Indonesia's energy needs the development of integrated oil and gas facilities is proof that investment interest in upstream oil and gas attract and will encourage the development of regional and national economy.
