According to Reuters, Indonesia has decided against Inpex Corp.’s proposal to build a floating LNG (FLNG) project offshore eastern Indonesia. Instead, the country will construct an onshore facility.
The President of Indonesia, Joko Widodo, reportedly said: “This is a long-term project that concerns hundreds of trillions of rupiah. From these calculations, we have decided to build it onshore.”
Earlier in March 2016, it was reported that internal disagreement was preventing a decision from being made as to whether Indonesia should proceed with an FLNG project – the US$15 million Masela Abadi LNG facility – or an onshore plant.
