The 'body' pipeline, built under a $440 million 'build and transfer' arrangement with state-owned oil firm Pertamina, will probably be dedicated in March, according M. Taufik Arifin, an executive of PT Trans Java gas pipeline.

The physical construction of the pipeline was completed last November and tests had begun soon afterward, he said.

The 28-inch pipe can carry about 600 million cu. ft of gas per day. About 370 km of the pipe is offshore.

Arifin said the fee for transporting natural gas would be set at 72 cents for each 1 million British Thermal Units transported.
