“The conduciveness of the JTB Project cannot be separated from the active role of Pertamina’s personnel, TNI, Polri, and all related security devices. Therefore, PT Pertamina EP Cepu continues to strive to improve communication and coordination, one of which is through the Coordination Meeting agenda,” said Kunadi.
As is known, the Jambaran-Tiung Biru (JTB) project managed by PT Pertamina EP Cepu is one of the National Strategic Projects (PSN) and has been determined by the Committee for the Acceleration of Priority Infrastructure Provision (KPPIP). This project is targeted to produce gas sales of 192 MMSCFD and will later be channeled through the Gresik-Semarang transmission pipeline.
With JTB gas reserves of 2.5 trillion cubic feet (TCF), JTB is expected to provide a multiplier effect, especially to overcome the gas supply deficit in Central and East Java.
