In response to Indonesian President Joko Widodo’s goal for the nation’s electrification ratio to reach 100 percent by 2019, several power plant projects have been scheduled to achieve a total of 35,000 megawatts (MW) of additional power. These projects are scheduled to be built in addition to small-scale liquefied natural gas (LNG) projects, both floating regasification units (FRU) and floating storage units (FSU), to provide gas to these facilities. Indonesia’s state run utility Perusahaan Listrik Negara (PLN) was tasked with implementing these plans.
GIS 2016 presented updates on 35,000MW program from a national’s and IPP’s perspective and challenges and opportunities associated with the program i.e. fuel availability, limited infrastructure (finance and investment) and tender and procurement processes. The opportunities for regional and international players associated with this tender is significant and the insights and updates on the next steps forward by the government and PLN is anticipated.
Themed “Advancing Indonesia’s Gas & LNG Industry”, GIS 2017 will provide crucial market updates on PLN’s power tender, what are the map of opportunities for small to large scale infrastructure development from the upstream to the downstream gas and LNG sector in Indonesia, as well as updates on Indonesia’s revision to 2015 gas regulation.
We are now welcoming submissions for abstracts to speak at the Gas Indonesia Summit & Exhibition in Jakarta, Indonesia from 12 to 14 July 2017. The conference topics are split between commercial and technical themes.
