JGC Corporation, in partnership with its subsidiary JGC Indonesia and PT Rekayasa Industri of Indonesia, has received an engineering, procurement and construction (EPC) order from PT Pertamina EP Cepu for the construction of a gas processing plant in Bojonegoro, East Java Province, Indonesia.
The lump sum turnkey contract is worth approximately JPY100bn ($885.5m), of which the share of JGC Group is approximately JPY40bn ($355.2m).
PT Pertamina EP Cepu (PEPC) is a subsidiary of PT Pertamina (Persero) (Pertamina), a state-owned energy company in Indonesia.
The project involves the design and construction of a plant to process 330 mmscfd natural gas (with 1% H2S and 34% CO2 content) for the production of 172 mmscfd sales gas, condensate and other products from natural gas produced by the unitized Jambaran - Tiung Biru gas field in the Bojonegoro area, developed by PEPC and its partners.
The project is part of a strategic programme of the Indonesian government to develop a domestic gas supply network to meet the increasing energy demand in the country.
The sales gas produced will be used primarily by a gas-fired power plant of Indonesia’s state-owned electric power company in East Java Province.
Since the 1970s, JGC has executed several projects for Pertamina. Brown and green field refinery projects planned by Pertamina in Indonesia are also under consideration.
