“I am happy that this project absorbs a lot of local workers. Currently, 70 percent of Tangguh’s operational staff are workers from West Papua and Papua Provinces. And, I heard that there is a new target by 2029 to increase it to 85 percent. This is very good and 105 operational technicians and maintenance workers are West Papuan sons and daughters who have been recruited since high school, who are undergoing an education program from BP in Berau,” he enthused.

The next project that will be built is the downstreaming of natural gas into low carbon ammonia. The plan is that 875,000 tons/year of blue ammonia will be produced and used for co-firing in power plants and steel factories. (bp)
