LOS ANGELES, Nov. 27 -- Indonesia's state-owned oil and natural gas company PT Pertamina and its partner the Medco Group are still in the process of selecting a Japanese partner for a 2 million tonnes/year liquefaction plant they plan to build in Senoro, Sulawesi, starting in 2007.

A spokesman said the two firms have yet to decide whether Mitsui Corp. or Mitsubishi Corp., both of Japan, will become the working partner for constructing the LNG facility.

"We have already been late too long, therefore, a decision has to be made by the end of this year," said Pertamina executive Tri Siwindono, who said LNG produced at the plant would be exported to Japan.

The plant will liquefy gas from Pertamina's wholly owned Matindock block and from the Senoro block owned equally by Pertamina and the Medco Group.
