In accordance with the final investment decision signed by both parties in 2016, 75% of Train 3 production will be allocated to PLN.
"After the production of Train 3, the Tangguh LNG production will increase by 3.8 million tons / year from 7.6 million tons / year (Train 1 and 2), bringing the total production to 11.4 million tons / year. Train 3 production is already committed to its domestic buyer, PLN, "said Arcandra Tahar after a working visit to Tangguh LNG Facility and WK Migas Kasuri, Friday (24/3/2018).
Arcandra explained, the supply of 75% of production Train 3 for PLN later equivalent to 3,000 MW. While Train 1 and 2 cargo allocations for power and industrial plants have been carried out by Tangguh LNG since 2013 with the possibility of additional supply to the country.
When Train 3 operates later, Arcandra explained, Tangguh LNG will also involve local people working in the location. "With the start of Train 3, there are about 5,000 workforces that can be absorbed later with most will be taken from local communities," added Arcandra.
