Considering the current situation in Indonesia, the conference covered all the key subjects around LNG that are discussed at the moment. Especially, the focus on small and mid-size LNG value chain was well covered. The ongoing plans in the country are focusing specifically on small and mid-size LNG-based power generation which is one of the key focuses also for Wärtsilä. We hope the conference will have successful continuation.”

“The Gas Indonesia Summit, held at the Shangri-La Hotel, Jakarta in March, had a great mix of ingredients: good organization and logistics, pertinent theme and topics, excellent speakers and presentations, as well as diverse and committed participants from all over the world. The team of DMG Events (especially Rekha, Andrew and Nick) with excellent support from Aryo of Sky Connection, did a marvellous job at putting this event together. It is incredibly difficult to bring together the right mix of government officials, regulators, state-owned enterprises, investors, advisors, developers and equipment suppliers in a coherent sequence, and the DMG team managed to achieve this. I have been involved with the Indonesian gas sector for over 30 years, and it is really satisfying that the advantages of gas utilization are finally being recognized, and events such as this inaugural Gas Indonesia Summit are integral to the further development of the Indonesian and South East Asian energy sector.”
