Under the Conventional PSC, VICO is responsible for oil & gas production from wells in four major fields, Badak, Semberah, Nilam, Mutiara. Oil and gas is comingled at satellite facilities and then fed to central facilities in each field where the hydrocarbons are further processed. The treated gas is delivered to the Badak Export Manifold (BEM). From BEM, the gas is distributed via 4-major export pipelines to the Bontang LNG plant and to the EK Industrial Estate.
VICO, who owns the Sanga Sanga Conventional Gas PSC, secured the CBM PSC, which covers the same area as the conventional PSC, in November 2009. The PSC is valid until 2039. Coal Bed Methane is a clean energy which is one of the countries’ most promised unconventional gases and will help to address Indonesia’s future energy needs.
