The Tangguh LNG is extracting natural gas from large offshore reservoirs and piping it to an onshore LNG plant for conversion to LNG after which it is exported (by shipping tanker) to markets in the Asia-Pacific region and beyond. Construction commenced in 2005 and the first cargo of LNG was shipped in the second quarter 2009. Tangguh LNG is anticipated to have an operational lifespan of more than 20 years with the potential for expansion depending on reservoir performance and proving of additional reserves.
