Eni Starts Up Jangkrik Offshore Indonesia

Eni has started gas production from the Jangkrik Development Project, offshore Indonesia.

The project comprises the gas fields Jangkrik and Jangkrik North East, located in the Muara Bakau block, Kutei basin, in the deep water of Makassar Strait.

Production from ten deepwater subsea wells, connected to the newly built Floating Production Unit (FPU) ‘Jangkrik’, will gradually reach 450 million standard cubic feet per day (mmscf/d), equivalent to 83,000 barrels of oil equivalent per day (boed).

The gas, once processed onboard the FPU, will flow via a dedicated 79km pipeline to the onshore receiving facility, both built by Eni, and then through the East Kalimantan transportation system, finally reaching the Bontang gas liquefaction plant.

Gas volumes from Jangkrik will supply the local domestic market as well as the LNG export market.

“We are very proud of what we have achieved with the Jangkrik Development Project,” said Eni CEO Claudio Descalzi. “The completion of the project and the start-up of production ahead of schedule further confirm Eni’s strategy and global capabilities. Furthermore, it provides the opportunity for the Jangkrik Floating Production Unit to become a hub for the development of our nearby gas discovery Merakes (Eni 85%, Pertamina 15%), which could start production within the next two years. We will consolidate our near field exploration strategy and operating model and maximize the integrated development of our projects also in Indonesia.”

Eni is the operator with a 55% stake of the Muara Bakau PSC through its subsidiary Eni Muara Bakau. The other partners are ENGIE E&P (through its subsidiary GDF SUEZ Exploration Indonesia) with 33.334% and PT. Saka Energi Muara Bakau with 11.666%.
