SAN DONATO MILANESE, Italy – The newbuild Jangkrik floating production unit (FPU) has undergone a naming ceremony at the Saipem Karimun Yard in Tanjung Balai Karimun, Indonesia.
According to operatorEni, the vessel will serve the Jangkrik Complex project in the offshore Muara Bakau concession in the Kutei basin in the Makassar Strait.
It will soon sail to its final destination: once in position, mooring and hookup operations will get under way. The project takes in theJangkrik and Jangkrik Northeast fields in 400 m (1,312 ft) of water, 100 km (62 mi) east of Balikpapan.
Eni is targeting first gas in June, within three and half years of project sanction. The FPU’s location will allow fasttrack development of nearby discoveries in this gas-rich region.
The FPU has a gas processing and export capacity of 450 MMcf/d, and will be connected to 10 deepwater subsea production wells. Following processing, the gas will be exported through a new 79-km (49-mi) pipeline to (also new) onshore reception facilities, then on through the East Kalimantan Transportation System to the Bontang gas liquefaction plant.
The gas volumes will supply the local domestic market, theIndonesian LNG market, and LNG exports.
Eni operates the Muara Bakau PSC, in partnership with Engie E&P and PT. Saka Energi Muara Bakau.
