JAKARTA (JP): State-owned oil and gas company Pertamina said Wednesday that it and its production-sharing contractors had started sending natural gas to Singapore from the West Natuna area in the South China Sea.
Pertamina's director of production-sharing contractor (PSC) management Iin Arifin Takhyan told reporters that the development of all facilities for gas delivery from West Natuna to Singapore, including a giant underwater pipeline linking both areas, had been completed last month.
"The first gas arrived in Singapore on Jan. 3," Iin said, adding that the gas delivery was four months ahead of schedule.
He said a ceremony would be held in Singapore on Jan. 15 to mark the start of gas deliveries.
