Eni has held a naming ceremony of the “Jangkrik” Floating Production Unit (FPU) vessel at Saipem Karimun Yard in Indonesia.
The FPU will operate in the Eni-operated Muara Bakau PSC located in the Kutei Basin, in the Makassar Strait offshore for the “Jangkrik Complex Fields”.
Ten production deepwater subsea wells will be connected to the FPU that has a gas processing and export capacity up to 450 million standard cubic feet per day.
The gas, once processed onboard the FPU, will then reach using a new dedicated 79 km pipeline and a new Onshore Receiving Facilities, the East Kalimantan Transportation System and the Bontang gas liquefaction plant.
The Jangkrik gas volumes will supply the local domestic market, the Indonesian LNG market as well as the LNG export market.
The Floating Production Unit will now sail to its final destination where, once in position, will begin mooring and hook-up operations.
The FPU will be located in strategic position that should also allow the prompt development of nearby discoveries in a region rich of gas resources.
