PT Pertamina Gas (Pertagas), a subsidiary of state owned oil and gas company PT Pertamina, has kicked off the construction of Porong-Grati gas pipeline, with a length of 56 kilometers in East Java.
Pertagas President Director Hendra Jaya said the groundbreaking of the Porong-Grati project was aimed to meet the gas needs of PLN power plant. He said he hopes that industries along the pipeline will also gain benefits as they can use gas transported through the pipeline.
PT Pertamina Gas is accelerating the construction of the 267-kilometers of gas pipeline linking Gresik town in East Java and Semarang in Central Java, known as Gresem pipeline. The gas pipeline will help connect gas pipeline across the Java Island.
President Director of PT Pertamina Gas (Pertagas) Hendra Jaya said since the delivery of pipelines to stockyard Alas Tuo station in Semarang on May 22, 2015, which is marking the construction of the pipeline, the progress of the pipe installation has gone well.
East Africa-focused oil and gas company Wentworth Resources has announced the first gas delivery from its Mnazi Bay Concession in southern Tanzania to the country’s new transnational pipeline. Two wells are now producing, with the three remaining wells expected to be put in production in the coming months. Initial production volumes will be used for commissioning purposes and to fill the pipeline, with production rates expected to increase to 70 MMcf/d by October this year and 80 MMcf/d by the end of 2015. The Mnazi Bay joint venture partners have agreed payment security terms with Tanzania Petroleum Development Corporation (TPDC), the buyer of the gas, and various other parties.
