BP announced on Oct. 19 that its first LNG cargo from the third liquefaction train (Train 3) at the Tangguh LNG facility in Papua Barat, Indonesia, shipped on Oct. 18 to Indonesia’s state-owned power generator.

The startup of Train 3 marks the beginning of the expanded facility’s full commercial operations, adding 3.8 million tonnes per annum (mtpa) of LNG production to the two -train facility. Total plant capacity is now at 11.4 mtpa, according to BP’s release.

“With its expanded production capacity, the Tangguh facility will play a vital role in helping to meet Indonesia’s growing energy demand,” Dwi Soetjipto, chairman of SKK Migas, Indonesia’s regulatory oil and gas agency, said in the release. “Total gas production at Tangguh is expected to account for over a third of national gas production.”
