Tangguh Project Increases Number of Workers


BP Berau Ltd as the operator of the Tangguh Field in West Papua will begin to increase the rate of construction of Tangguh Train 3 by increasing the number of workers in the field (the person onboard / PoB) from 6,300 PoB to 7,700 PoB.

    This step is taken after the operator can keep Tangguh Field Covid-19 free and have emergency response readiness to maintain the progress of the project.

SKK Migas received a report from BP Berau Ltd regarding the development of the Tangguh train-3 expansion project schedule. The success of the operator in keeping the project Covid-19 free is encouraging news. 

    This shows that the upstream oil and gas project can still be realized by implementing the Covid-19 health protocol and applying K3 standards at a high level, "said SKK Migas Head of Program and Communication Division Susana Kurniasih, Head of the Task Force.

The increase in the number of workers in the field was carried out after going through a series of evaluations. Due to this success, BP Berau Ltd as the operator plans to gradually increase the number of Tangguh train 3 project workers.

"We hope that this step is one of the efforts to accelerate the completion of the project, which was slowed down due to the Covid-19 pandemic," said Susana.

Previously, when the Covid-19 pandemic began to enter a number of regions in Indonesia at the end of February 2020, the upstream oil and gas industry significantly reduced activities in the field, as an effort to prevent the spread of the Covid-19 pandemic. 

    At that time the Tangguh project in West Papua had to reduce workers in the field, from 13,000 Person on Board (BOP) to around 6,300 BOP. The reduction of up to 50% of these workers is a medical recommendation so that a “keep your distance” scenario can be carried out in the field.

Susana added that starting to increase the number of project workers at Tangguh train 3 will be good news for the goods/service provider industry and the local community.

"The increase in the number of project workers will have a positive impact on the economy, create jobs and of course as a form of support for the upstream oil and gas industry to be able to maintain people's purchasing power during the Covid-19 outbreak," She said.

Tangguh train-3 is a national strategic project which when it is onstream will provide a significant additional national oil and gas production. This project will produce 3,000 BOPD of oil and 700 MMSCFD of gas. The investment value for the Tangguh train-3 project is estimated at the US $ 8.9 billion. 

    Meanwhile, until June 2020 the realization of the Tangguh train-3 project development for onshore was 83.27% of the target of 84.35% (rebaseline plan) and offshore development was 98.15% of the target of 99.39% (plan).

SKK Migas and KKKS continue to coordinate and seek innovations during the Covid-19 pandemic so that oil and gas production and lifting can remain optimal. The step in maintaining the Tangguh train-3 project and other upstream oil and gas projects is one way for SKK Migas to realize the production of 1 million barrels of oil and 12,000 MMSCFD of gas by 2030.
