EIA Completion of the Abadi Abadi LNG Project begins

After being stopped due to the approval of the Covid-19 pandemic, the process of discussing the Impact of the Environmental Impact (EIA) of the Abadi LNG Project, the Masela Block will start again in the second semester. Not only that, some foreign gas buyers who are interested in taking liquefied natural gas (LNG) produced by this project.

Dwi Soetjipto

SKK Migas Head Dwi Soetjipto said that Inpex Corporation and Shell continue to work on the Abadi LNG Project. At present, EIA approval for this project has been approved. Needed, Inpex as an operator will continue to be completed by Amdal so other processes can be carried out, including land acquisition.

"Inpex can conduct a survey in the second semester, especially for rainy season data. Then [the process] gives an EIA, then other things can be processed. This is a condition for the investor in the execution of the land, which is the EIA, okay, "he said.

The Abadi LNG project

Related to land acquisition, the Governor of Maluku. Murad Ismail is committed to facilitating it. The Abadi LNG project is a large project that submitted its development plan which was witnessed directly by President Joko Widodo so that the local government will support this project. In addition, this project is also intended for the people of Maluku.

"Since all land permits above 5 hectares are ours, I will help and discuss with the regents of Tanimbar and Southwest Maluku," he said.

He decided, his party would strive so that there were no challenges in the acquisition of this land. For example, it has previously provided 27 hectares of land on Nustual Island as the port side of the Abadi LNG Project. 

    The decision was stipulated in the Maluku Governor's Decree No. 96 of 2020 on the 14th of February 2020. Therefore, Murad asked the contractor not to doubt the tolerance of the local government regarding the Abadi LNG Project. Even if there is compensation for land acquisition, it will facilitate so that the amount is not excessive.

"We support that everywhere, we choose adat and deliberation. We will be picky about this land, "he said.

However, to complete the execution of land acquisition depends on Inpex.

"Procurement of land depends on Inpex wanting to be finished anytime. We just wait. It is impossible to finish if there is no support from Inpex, "he added.

Based on SKK Migas data, as of last March, the work on the Environmental Analysis (Amdal) of the Abadi Project has only reached 43.41% of the target of 47.27%. In addition, the auction process for the work of Front End Engineering Design / FEED onshore liquefied natural gas / LNG refinery facilities, floating production and loading and unloading facilities (floating production, storage, and unloading / FPSO), gas pipelines, and umbilical underwater facilities, risers, and flowline (SURF) is still ongoing.

Aside from land, Dwi admitted, the Covid-19 pandemic also considered the sale of LNG from the Abadi LNG Project. Because, for the project to reach a Final Investment Decree / FID, amounting to 80% of the total LNG production target of 9.5 million tons per year, there must be a buyer. So far, PT PLN (Persero) has approved the purchase of LNG of 2-3 million tons per year and PT Pupuk Indonesia (Persero) 150 million standard cubic feet per day / MMscfd.

"From abroad, there are Japanese, Chinese, and Taiwanese companies that are interested in buying, we immediately receive support," Dwi said.

It was revealed, his side was still hoping that the Abadi LNG Project FID could be accepted in 2022. Before that, along with LNG marketing, the project design work had to be completed.

"From 2022 to 2027, EPC (engineering, procurement, and construction) can continue," he said.

The Abadi Project launches in the second quarter of 2027. The US $ 19.8 billion replacement project undertaken by Inpex Masela Ltd is projected to produce 150 mmscfd of gas piped and in the form of LNG 9.5 million tons per year.
