Separate CO2 from natural gas

As state run oil and gas firm PT Pertamina is selecting partners for the development of the Natuna D-Alpha gas block, the Netherlands-based Royal Dutch Shell Plc is promoting its technology which it claims is applicable to gas fields contaminated with high levels of CO2. PT Shell Indonesia's president director, said the company had been developing a combined technology to separate CO2 from natural gas. We expect this combined technology will be able to deal with CO2 contaminated fields with the degree of contamination up to 90 percent. Shell is included in the list of eight candidates shortlisted by Pertamina all of whom are hoping to help develop the block. Located in the Riau Islands, the Natuna D-Alpha block is estimated to contain 46 trillion cubic feet of gas, making it the biggest gas reserve in Asia. However, it requires big investment and advanced technology as it contains 70 percent of CO2
Standard Chartered Bank signed an agreement Wednesday with PT Shell Indonesia to offer clients gasoline price reductions at all 20 Shell gasoline stations in Greater Jakarta. The discount is only eligible for platinum and gold credit card holders, with 10 and 5 percent reductions respectively. This discount program will only be available every Tuesday and Thursday, Standard Chartered credit card business manager Yongkie Cendana said, adding that the program would be valid until the end of the year. He said Standard Chartered was targeting 200,000 to 250,000 gasoline credit card purchases during the period, with an average of 30 liters per transaction. The bank expects the number of its credit card holders to grow by 30 to 40 percent and transaction values by 40 to 50 percent. Currently, it has around 250,000 credit card holders, 80 percent of whom are premium and gold card holders
