SKK Migas’s Deputy of Operation Julius Wiratno inaugurated the project in a virtual event, which was attended General Manager Jabung Wang Qilin, on Thursday, Aug. 26, 2021. Several officials of SKK Migas, including Head of Facility Maintenance and Project Management Division Ardiansyah, Vice President Management Representative Maria Sondang, Project Management Department Head Noezran Azwar also joined this meeting.

PetroChina’s management was represented by Vice President Supply Chain Management Gusminar, Sr. Development Manager Budi Tyas Utomo, Project Manager Slamet Supriyanta and the rest of the Project Dept. team.

PCJL as the production sharing contractor under the monitoring and evaluation of SKK Migas completed the WB NAG Compression and Condensate Pumping System to maintain gas production from West Betara (WB) and South Betara (SB) Field amid Covid-19 pandemic.

WB NAG Compression and Condensate Pumping System project has been successfully put onstream on August 18, 2021 and went through 2 x 24 hours of performance monitoring for each unit. Therefore, the commissioning and start-up of WB NAG Compression and Condensate Pumping System project was complete on 22 August 2021. The onstream date of the project was delayed for one month, from initial target of July 12, due to mobility restriction related to emergency public facility restriction (PPKM).

“The facility completion of WB NAG Compression and Condensate Pumping System is important to maintain gas source from WB & SB field, also as a follow up on PCJL program that has been approved to Put on Production (POP) 4 gas wells from Baturaja Formation with total target rate of 7.5 MMSCFD,” Wang explained.

Moreover, the achieved 30.5 MMSCFD of gas production capacity, concluded by the operation of gas compressors of WB NAG Compression and Condensate Pumping System on 22 August 2021, signifies PCJL’s effort to maintain delivery of gas production from WB and SB field which transported through South West Betara – Central Processing Station South pipeline to CPS where it will be processed further to produce sales gas.

“PCJL will continue to innovate, improve efficiency, and enhance all project management aspects, the competency of human resources, and engineering capability while prioritizing work safety in fulfilling upstream oil and gas projects completion,” Wang said.

Julius said that the WB NAG Compression and Condensate Pumping System was one of important projects in upstream oil and gas industry that went onstream during the COVID-19 pandemic.

“This project is important to support the national production and lifting target, as well as to achieve the energy resilience,” he added. “In the years ahead, SKK Migas awaits other innovations from production sharing contractors to support the government’s long-term goal of 1 million BOPD and 12 BSCFD production in 2030” said Julius.
