IGT International Liquefied Natural Gas Conference Proceedings | Year: 2010

The innovative heat and power integration system employed in the Tangguh LNG plant in Papua Barat, Indonesia, as well as provisions for managing the "footprint" of the plant in a socially and environmentally sensitive area, were reported at the design stage in 2005-6. Now the plant is operational, the Paper will update the conference on the effectiveness of these measures, and on how the challenges of implementing them were overcome. Some principal features are given below: Some residential accommodation had to be moved and rebuilt at a safe distance from the gas processing facilities: comments will be made on the functioning of the local community after the changes. Hardwood tree felling was minimised in the site area and the cleared areas were replanted appropriately where not actually utilised by process facilities. Now the effects of remediation measures can be evaluated. All waste heat from the gas turbine drivers is utilised either as process heat or in raising steam for smaller steam turbines. This has resulted in an unusual degree of process/utility integration: experiences from start-up and early operation will be shared. Utilisation of power available from the gas turbines driving the refrigeration compressors is exceptionally high, all site power in normal operation is provided by steam turbine generators, and the selected process capacity and heat integration system minimise electrical power consumption. Together, these lead to high overall carbon efficiency and low NOx emissions. Some initial figures on fuel consumption will be made available.

One part of the operating vision in the Tangguh LNG facility in Papua Barat province is continuous improvement (CI) to safety, reliability, and waste reduction. An example of business logistical issue with environmental impact is waste cooking oil (WCO) which is produced regularly when preparing ca 2000 meals/day at Tangguh LNG site. SKK Migas has been interested in Tangguh's CI to convert WCO into valuable products, e.g., biodiesel. The biodiesel product has met the Indonesian National Standard requirements and has been utilized as vehicle fuel.
