Kogas dispatches first tanker from Indonesian LNG plant

Korea Gas Corporation (Kogas) announced on Monday that it has shipped its first tanker load of liquefied natural gas from a plant in Indonesia.

The Donggi-Senoro LNG plant’s construction was completed in February and it started production in June, with a capacity of about 2 million tons annually.

The gas field there has reserves estimated at 78 million tons. Indonesia’s President Joko Widodo attended a ceremony to mark the first shipment at the Sulawesi plant on Sunday.

Kogas is a partner in the project with Japan’s Mitsubishi and two Indonesian participants, Pertamina and Medco.

This is the first Kogas participation in the operation of an LNG liquefaction plant; this one will ship 700,000 tons each to Korea and Japan.
