Efforts to realize the production target of 1 million barrels per day (BPD) must be supported by a good investment climate, "he said.

Furthermore, Inpex also built a production facility, FPSO, underwater gas pipeline from the FPSO to a gas receiving facility (GRF) on land, and an LNG plant on land.

The Abadi project is projected to produce 9.5 million tons of gas per year in LNG and 150 million standard cubic feet per day / mmscfd for pipeline gas. Previously, Minister of Energy and Mineral Resources (ESDM) Arifin Tasrif said the Abadi LNG Project was still targeted to operate in 2027.

However, his party encourages this gas project to operate faster in 2026, if it is indeed possible to do so. This is so that the country will immediately receive revenue from this project. To be able to speed up the operating schedule in 2026, Dwi explained that the final investment / FID decision must be completed by the end of 2021. 

     While project construction is targeted to begin in 2021 from the plan in 2022. In addition to working on Amdal, Inpex is holding an auction to carry out front end engineering design work. / FEED and FEED are targeted to be completed by the end of 2021.
