JGC awarded EPC contract for gas processing plant in Indonesia
YOKOHAMA, Japan — JGC Corporation announced that, in partnership with JGC Indonesia, a subsidiary of JGC Corporation, and PT Rekayasa Industri of Indonesia, it has received an order for engineering, procurement and construction (EPC) work for the construction of a gas processing plant in Bojonegoro, East Java Province, Indonesia. The lump-sum turn key contract, valued at approximately 100 B Japanese Yen, of which the JGC Group share is approximately 40 B Japanese Yen, was awarded by PT Pertamina EP Cepu (PEPC), a subsidiary of PT Pertamina (Persero), Indonesia’s state-owned energy company.

The project contract calls for the design and construction of a plant to process 330 MMscfd natural gas (with 1% H2S and 34% CO2 content) for the production of 172 MMscfd sales gas, condensate and so on, from natural gas produced by the unitized Jambaran-Tiung Biru gas field in the Bojonegoro area developed by PEPC and its partners.
The Indonesian government has decided, as one of its important policies, to develop a domestic gas supply network to respond to the increasing energy demand in the country, and the project is listed as a strategic program following that policy. Plan is for the produced sales gas to be used principally by a gas-fired power plant of Indonesia’s state-owned electric power company in East Java Province.
Since the 1970s, JGC has carried out numerous projects for Pertamina. JGC understands that the contract has been awarded to JGC on the basis of its experience in Indonesia and the high evaluation accorded to its project execution capabilities, in addition to its cost-competitive proposal.
In Indonesia, some additional big projects, such as brown and green field refinery projects planned by Pertamina, are under consideration. Through successful completion of this project and active sales activity as an engineering company which is able to respond to the various needs of clients in Indonesia, JGC intends to contribute further to the development of industries and improvement of living conditions in Indonesia.

Power, LNG projects drive pipeline construction in Africa
Increasing public investment in gas-fired power plants in Africa, the continuing recovery in global oil prices and persistent insecurity in key producer markets, such as Nigeria, are likely to impact gas transmission pipeline projects on the continent, even as more international companies express interest in the region’s stranded gas resources.
Maximize Profitability with Advanced Analytics at Natural Gas Processing Plants
Incorporating economic data into process modeling is key to optimizing operations and maximizing profits at gas processing plants. However, maintaining optimal operations are often challenging due to changing market dynamics, contract structures and increasing process flexibility. Today, gas processors are leveraging Predictive Control and First Principles models to accurately determine and control the optimal operating targets in real time based on the most current plant conditions and profitability, optimizing recovery of natural gas liquids. Learn how real-time analytics, combined with decision support tools, empower companies to:
•Improve processing margins by up to 5%
•Maximize NGL production through improved availability and optimized process conditions
•Improve compositional control to operate closer to product specifications
