Approval of Development Plan for the Abadi Gas Field

Source: www.gulfoilandgas.com 12/21/2010, Location: Asia

INPEX CORPORATION (INPEX) is pleased to announce that the Plan of Development (POD) for the Abadi gas field in the Masela Block, the Arafura Sea, Indonesia, was approved by the Indonesian Government. The project has been undertaken by INPEX Masela, Ltd., a subsidiary of INPEX, as the operator, and its project partner PT EMP Energi Indonesia (EMPI), a subsidiary of PT Energi Mega Persada Tbk. The approved POD envisions the adoption of the Floating LNG (liquefied natural gas) for an optimal method for the commercial development.

INPEX submitted a POD in September 2008 to BPMigas, the Indonesian authority for oil and gas upstream business, and was later given a government approval in principle. INPEX then discussed with the Indonesian Government the most optimal development plan based on the results of the third-party evaluation conducted by the Indonesian Government. It has been concluded that the Abadi gas field will be developed in phases and that one FLNG plant will be constructed and utilized for the annual LNG production of 2.5 million ton for the first phase development.

INPEX Masela and EMPI will proceed to the FEED (Front End Engineering and Design) in a timely manner in order for an early start up of the commercial LNG production.

INPEX continues to seek support from the Indonesian Government and other stakeholders for an early and optimal commercial gas production from the Abadi project.

About the Abadi Project:

A gas field and LNG development project for the Abadi gas field located in the Masela Block in the Arafura Sea in the eastern part of Indonesia. The entire area of the Block is 3,221 km2 and the water depth ranging from 300 to 1,000m. INPEX Masela has explored the Block as the operator, and the field was discovered at the exploratory well Abadi-1 drilled in 2000. Subsequently, appraisal works were conducted, including the drilling of the six appraisal wells, and confirmed the sufficient volumes of gas reserves for an LNG development project.

Project participants: INPEX Masela 90%, Operator; EMPI 10%.

Why one FLNG plant for 2.5 million ton will be constructed and utilized during the first phase of the Abadi gas field development

(1) Technical reference will be available with other FLNG projects utilizing the similar-sized FLNG facilities, (2) it will be easier to secure the necessary insurance capacity, and (3) a more competitive environment can be exected among the potential contractors that are eligible for manufacturing the FLNG facilities. The estimated reserve volumes of the Abadi gas field remain unchanged as previously estimated.
