The largest dredging project in the world is being built in Indonesia and the final stages of construction are being completed.
The Indonesian Government says the project will bring 1,000 workers to the area where the river meets the sea, and bring jobs to the country that is home to one of the world’s largest oil reserves.
A joint project with Malaysian energy giant Petrojabis is being designed and built with the Indonesian government.
The pipeline will carry natural gas from the nearby Petaling Jaya oil field, which produces about a quarter of the country’s oil, to the port of Busan.
The new pipeline will take oil from the Petaling River, which empties into the sea at a depth of 1,200 feet, to a nearby refinery and then to a tanker terminal at the port city of Busansan.
According to the government, the new pipeline is expected to create between 15,000 and 20,000 jobs.
In September 2016, the International Monetary Fund (IMF) estimated that Indonesia’s economy would shrink by 7 percent to 8 percent over the next 20 years due to the loss of the Petalling Jaya gas field and the closure of its remaining port of Bulawong.
The project will be operated by a joint venture between Petrojabs and the Indonesian state-owned Petaling Petrochemical and Petroleum Products Corp. (PPP), and a consortium of private companies.
The joint venture is expected bring up to 200,000 direct jobs to Indonesia, according to the International Labor Organization (ILO).
“The project is expected be the largest and the biggest of its kind in the country,” Indonesian Prime Minister Joko Widodo said in May 2017, according, The Jakarta Post.
In 2017, the government approved a proposal for construction of the pipeline through a national park in a region of central Java known as Sumbawa.
Construction of the first stage of the project was already underway in early 2017, with a total length of 2,500 kilometers (1,200 miles) and a completion date of 2021.
The total cost of the $2.2 billion project was estimated at $4.5 billion.
The final stage of construction is scheduled to begin in 2018.
According, the pipeline will deliver 2.5 million barrels of natural gas annually, which could increase to 5.5 percent of the Indonesian oil output, depending on the volumes transported, according the Indonesian Ministry of Environment and Sustainable Development.
The pipelines project will also be used to transport other commodities, such as fuel and chemicals, from the area around the Petalsayan oil field.
The Petalsaysan field is located near Busansaray, and has been an important source of energy for Indonesia for decades.
A 2015 study by the International Energy Agency (IEA) estimated the area of the field at 5 million square kilometers (2.7 million square miles).
The mine is expected create about 10,000 permanent jobs, the project’s developer said in a statement.
“It is the world leader in its field and will become the largest hydrocarbon project in Southeast Asia,” the Indonesian Minister of Environment said in 2017.
The company said that the project would be “an economic and social boost for Indonesia, which is a key market for Indonesia’s energy industry and will further boost the economic growth and employment of our people.”
Indonesian Prime Minster Joko Zardari has said the project is needed to build a “bigger and better” pipeline for the country, according TOI.
The country has been struggling to find more oil and gas resources.
The world’s top oil exporter, Indonesia has struggled to find and develop new sources of energy and natural gas.
The region is currently experiencing a massive drought.
In the last three years, the number of people without water has doubled in Indonesia, from around 12 million to over 40 million, according data from the International Organization for Migration.
Indonesia has had a very harsh drought, which has contributed to the deaths of hundreds of thousands of people, according government figures.
