Aceh Production Operations
ExxonMobil operates the Arun Field in Nanggroe Aceh Darussalam Province as a Cooperation Contract Contractor (KKKS) to the Indonesian Upstream Oil and Gas Regulatory Body (BPMIGAS). ExxonMobil affiliates also operate the South Lhoksukon A and D, as well as North Sumatra Offshore gas field. ExxonMobil affiliates hold a 100 percent participating interest in the above mentioned fields.
Gas produced from these fields is supplied to the PT Arun Natural Gas Liquefaction (NGL) facility, where the gas is processed into liquefied natural gas, or LNG. ExxonMobil has also supplied gas to local fertilizer plants and a paper mill. At its peak, the Arun Field produced about 3.4 billion cubic feet of gas per day (1994) and about 130,000 barrels of condensate per day (1989). LNG from PT Arun was first exported to Japan in 1978.
In September 2009, ExxonMobil received a Green PROPER award from the Ministry of Environment for demonstrating full innovation and dedication toward the environment and sustainable community development. The award recognizes businesses/activities that have undertaken environmental management efforts that achieve results above and beyond what is required by applicable regulations in Indonesia.
