BP Berau operates the project on behalf of MI Berau, CNOOC Muturi, Nippon Oil Exploration, KG Berau Petroleum and KG Wiriagar Petroleum, Indonesia Natural Gas Resources Muturi and Talisman Wiriagar Overseas.

The expansion plan for the facility was approved by the Indonesian government in 2012, with an environmental permit secured in August 2014. After a series of delays impacted the project and delivery of materials, the launch of the expansion project was delayed until the third quarter of 2021.

The Covid pandemic and labour issues are causing further delays, with cost overruns expected.
