JAKARTA (Reuters) – Operation of Train 3 at BP’s <BP.L> Tangguh liquefied natural gas plant in Indonesia is expected to be delayed by a year, Fatar Yani Abdurrahman, deputy chief of upstream oil and gas regulator SKK Migas, told reporters.

It is expected to begin in the third quarter of 2021 versus at initial target of the third quarter of 2020, he said.

A number of natural disasters across Indonesia have delayed shipments of construction material needed in Tangguh, he said, adding that financial difficulty faced by one contractor had also hampered progress.
