BP Western Java Platform Fire Now Under Control

A fire that engulfed BP Indonesia's North West Java Bravo offshore production platform is now under control, according to a Pertamina spokesman. BP Indonesia operates the field under a production sharing contract with Pertamina.

The fire started around 0130 GMT Thursday. There were no casualties and non-essential personnel were evacuated from the platform. "We are trying to determine the cause of the fire at this time," the Pertamina spokesman said, "but it appears that will take some time. The platform will be shutdown for some time while the investigation into the fire is conducted and then while repairs are made and the platform restored to operating condition."

The production platform produces 40 million cubic feet of natural gas per day, and supplies to state-owned natural gas company PT Perusahaan Gas Negara and a power plant in north Jakarta operated by PT Perusahaan Listrik Negara. For the time being, PLN will have to buy diesel from Pertamina as fuel for the power plant.
