Indonesia is becoming an important nation for many country's foreign oil and gas investments, particularly from Japan.

Sumitomo Mitsui Financial Group Inc. is leading a group of Japanese and Korean banks in loaning Mitsubishi $1.5 million to complete the plant, according to a press release.
Mitsubishi owns 45 percent of the LNG facility, which is set to begin operations by the middle of 2015. It is anticipated to have an annual capacity of 2 million tons.
