Indonesia's Bontang LNG output seen lower
Output from Indonesia’s Bontang LNG plant is targeted at 89.6 cargoes this year, Arief Setiawan Handoko, deputy of finance and monetisation at oil and gas upstream regulator SKK Migas said.
Output of the Tangguh LNG plant is seen at 122.3 cargoes this year, he said in a text message to Reuters.
In comparison, Indonesia produced 111.7 cargoes from Bontang and 117.4 cargoes from Tangguh, SKK Migas data showed last week.

Corrosion Control for Gas Treating Amines: Technology Leads to Increased Amine Unit Efficiency
Accelerated basin drilling activities combined with increased fugitive gas emission capture technologies have increased trace oxygen levels in midstream natural gas. Oxygen present in concentrations even as low 30-50 ppm will cause costly corrosion-related problems in plant operations and processing equipment. One area in the plant most affected by oxygen is the amine unit. Oxygen will degrade MDEA-blended amines to corrosive amino acids and heat-stable amine salts.
Learn how a new technology from BASF combined with innovation from Nalco Water can increase amine efficiency and reduce costs associated with corrosion. This new technology will inhibit the degradation of amines from oxygen attack and control corrosion in process gas, while stabilizing the amine from degradation into bicine and other heat-stable amine salts. Together with Nalco Water’s real-time amine corrosion control program, have been proven to both mitigate oxygen degradation of amine and reduce the overall corrosivity of amine units.
