Indonesia's Abadi LNG project may be delayed two years
(Reuters) - Indonesia's Abadi LNG project's onstreaming may be delayed for two years from 2027, the industry regulator said on Thursday.
The project, in which Japanese oil and gas company Inpex is the lead investor, has faced years of delay after various changes in planning, including to accommodate a government request to move the project onshore.
It has previously been expected to cost around $20 billion.
"Based on today's information, 2027 is no longer viable, so we'll shift the schedule say for two years," said SKK Migas senior official Benny Lubiantara.
Authorities expect Inpex to submit a revised development plan for the project by year-end to include costs of carbon capture installations in their investment, the regulator said on Wednesday.
Indonesia is working to find a replacement investor in the project after Shell communicated to authorities their intention to divest 35% of their stake in it.
Earlier this month, Investment Minister Bahlil Lahadalia said the government plans to form a consortium consisting of state oil company Pertamina, the Indonesia Investment Authority (INA) sovereign wealth fund and other companies that could take over Shell's stake.

Optimizing Gas Distribution: Accounting for Changeovers, Regulators, and More
Gas distribution systems are critical to the effective operation of many industrial facilities around the world. Despite the importance of these systems, however, opportunities to improve their performance and cost-effectiveness are often missed or misunderstood. Increasing changeover pressure may seem like a good way to improve system flow, for example, but it often does so at the expense of bottled gas. Adding regulators may help you control supply pressure, but it also adds cost to your system. So, how do you know what the ideal gas distribution setup is for you?
Attend this webinar to:
- Gain a basic understanding of the fluid dynamics that affect pressure control in gas distribution systems, learning to interpret flow curves and recognize phenomena like lockup, droop, and supply pressure effect (SPE)
- Learn how inlet pressure affects regulator performance and when to specify certain regulator types and configurations to effectively control gas system pressures
Understand the inherent trade-offs between gas utilization and flow capacity and how to select both the right changeover pressure and automatic changeover panel design for your operations.
