The Jambaran-Tiung Biru Project Must Be Completed This Year


    The government is encouraging the development of the Jambaran-Tiung Biru (JTB) Project to operate by the end of this year. This is because the project with an estimated production of 192 million standard cubic feet per day / MMscfd is already awaiting its gas supply. 

    Minister of Energy and Mineral Resources (ESDM) Arifin Tasrif said that the Covid-19 pandemic caused obstacles in the completion of the JTB Project. However, given the importance of this project, his party hopes that this project can still be completed this year.

"We have asked the management to catch up again so that this project can produce gas at the end of the year. We really hope that gas from JTB can be produced immediately, "he said.

    As scheduled, the projects that are included in the list of National Strategic Projects (PSN) are supposed to start operating in the third quarter of this year. However, the pandemic hindered the completion of the project.

    President Director of PT Pertamina EP Cepu (PEPC) Awang Lazuardi explained, even though the pandemic is still ongoing, his party continues to catch up with certain sectors by achieving more progress in other sectors. This is so that the overall project is still on target. Until now, the work on the JTB Project has reached more than 89%.

"Overall we still have a significant difference in progress, although there are some parts that have not arrived. However, we are optimistic that the on stream target will be achieved according to schedule, "he said.

    Currently, several production facilities at the JTB Project are increasingly complete. Some of them include the installation of high-tech processing pipes and tubes, to other supporting facilities such as dormitory buildings. There were obstacles to the process of fabricating tools and sending them from abroad.

    To overcome this, Pertamina EP Cepu (PEPC) increases the number of workers to complete jobs whose components are already available in the country. Previously, Deputy for Finance and Monetization of the Special Task Force for Upstream Oil and Gas Business Activities (SKK Migas) Arief S Handoko said the JTB Project is one of three projects that will provide additional gas supply, mainly in East Java. This project is even the project that will generate the largest additional supply, reaching 192 MMscfd.

"The largest additional supply will be obtained from the JTB Project which we estimate will be on stream in the fourth quarter of 2021. This project can supply gas amounting to 192 MMscfd, which will be supplied not only to East Java but also to Central Java, "said Arief.

    The JTB project includes the construction of a gas processing facility / GPF and its supporting facilities, as well as the drilling of six development wells and one plug and abandonment well. With the optimization of the GPF design, the salable gas production from this project can be increased from 172 MMscfd to 192 MMscfd.

    This gas production will be channeled through the Gresik-Semarang transmission pipe owned by PT Pertamina Gas (Pertagas). Pertamina has signed the Jambaran-Tiung Biru gas sale and purchases agreement (PJBG) with PT PLN (Persero). Gas from the Jambaran-Tiung Biru project will be supplied to PLN by 100 MMscfd and the remaining 72 MMscfd for industries in Central and East Java.

    To date, the costs incurred to build the GPF are recorded at the US $ 974.44 million or 73.4% of the total approved budget (authorization for expenditure / AFE) of US $ 1.32 billion. Meanwhile, the number of workers involved in working on this project was 7,842 people.
