BP gets greenlight for expansion plans in West Papua

11:37 am on 6 December 2012

The newly formed task force SKSP Migas has officially approved British energy giant BP's expansion plan for the firm's Tangguh plant in West Papua, Indonesia.

This comes amid ongoing concerns among oil and gas industry players following the dissolution of BP Migas.

Energy and Mineral Resources Deputy Minister, Rudi Rubiandini, says the task force had endorsed BP's plan to build a third 12 billion US dollar liquefied natural gas train at its massive gas project located in Teluk Bintuni, West Papua.

The SKSP Migas head, Energy and Mineral Resources Minister Jero Wacik, signed the plan of development for the Tangguh's third LNG train on Thursday.
