Revolutionising Asia and Indonesia’s gas market
Monday 1 February 2016, Singapore: Regional and international energy players to set tone and address
investment and infrastructure development opportunities across Asia and Indonesia’s gas markets
Indonesia’s first mini liquefied natural gas (LNG) terminal, Tanjung Benoa Terminal, heralds the start of
Indonesia’s efforts to increase gas consumption and investment in its gas infrastructure.
The terminal is expecting a cargo delivery on 1 March, and will come online a week earlier for commissioning
purposes. It echoes sentiments expressed by both Andri Hadi, Ambassador of the Republic of Indonesia to
Singapore as well as IGN Wiratmaja Puja, Director General of Oil and Gas for the Ministry of Energy and
Mineral Resources (ESDM), during the Spotlight on Indonesia session at Gastech in Singapore last October.
Due to space constraints, the terminal utilises FRSU (Floating Regasification and Storage Units) solutions rather
than traditional land based facilities. This makes it an ideal pilot project for Indonesia to consider how it can
utilise similar time and cost effective solutions in other locations to supply its archipelago.
“Indonesia is facing huge challenges converting an export oriented gas industry into one that services
increasing domestic energy consumption” comments AG&P’s Director - Advanced Modular Infrastructure,
Derek Thomas, “Geographic complications of delivering energy to a widely distributed population will require
new and innovative thinking combining cost effective technologies.”
Mr Thomas is just one of 40 international experts and industry players who will address the future of
Indonesia’s gas market at the Gas Indonesia Summit & Exhibition (GIS) in Jakarta this March.
The GIS, officially supported by the ESDM and powered by Gastech, will provide a central platform for 300
Indonesian and international players, particularly those with strategic interest in developing and investing in
the region’s gas and LNG markets.
The 2 day commercial and technical conference has been developed with the help of Indonesian gas market
leaders such as - Pertamina, PLN, Shell, Total, JGC, SMBC, Black & Veatch, E.ON, PT Humpuss, PwC, IIF, GE Oil
& Gas, AG&P, GTT and Herbert Smith to address the current and future market condition of Indonesia.
Since its launch at Gastech, the event has received a high level of interest and support from the Asian and
international energy community, and 40 speakers are expected to speak at the event.
Speaking ahead of the event, David Morris, Advisory Committee member and Lead LNG Originator, Asia, E.ON
Global Commodities SE said, “As a company we see Indonesia as one of the bright spots for future LNG
demand in South East Asia and that is why I chose to help out on the Advisory Committee. I am looking
forward to the Gas Indonesia Summit and Exhibition to learn more about what is happening in both the
upstream and downstream sectors as well as to hear from those that will influence the country’s future
The Keynote Address delivered by Yuki Sadamitsu Director Petroleum and Natural Gas Division - Ministry of
