The Minister of Energy and Mineral Resources, Arifin Tasrif, explained that the total volume of gas distributed is divided into two sectors, namely certain industries and electricity generation, PT Perusahaan Listrik Negara (Persero).

The breakdown is that the total volume of natural gas for specific industries is recorded at 1,205 BBtud or 18 percent of the APBN gas lifting target. Meanwhile, the total gas volume for PLN’s power plant is 1,396 BBtud, or 21 percent of the APBN gas lifting target.

The adjustment of special gas prices for specific industries and power plants is stipulated in the Minister of Energy and Mineral Resources Decree No. 89K of 2020 and No. 91K in 2020.

ESDM Minister Arifin Tasrif said the target of optimizing the use of natural gas for domestic needs will be achieved by expanding the provision of 56,000 units of Gas Fuel (BBG) converter kits to fishermen and farmers. Also, the government is targeting additional gas networks (jargas) of 120,776 household connections (SR).

According to Arifin, the use of jargas is considered more practical and friendly to the environment than fuel oil. For this program to run optimally and ease the financial burden of the state, the Government will also collaborate with business entities by using the Public-Private Partnership (PPP) scheme. In 2020, around 135,000 house connections were built in 23 districts/cities.

PLN Primary Energy Director Rudy Hendra Prastowo projects that this year’s LNG demand will be higher than last year’s realization. In 2021, the demand for LNG is estimated to be above 400 trillion British thermal units (TBTU).

Rudy said that the need for LNG would depend on the development of electricity demand. Although he did not mention the detail, the need for LNG last year was indeed smaller, which was below 400 TBTU.

The volume of total gas demand will increase above 800 TBTU until 2028. Meanwhile, the energy mix in 2025 for natural gas including LNG is planned to reach 15.3% with a need of 939 TBTU.

2021, LNG Production Decreases to 200.74 Cargo

The Special Task Force for Upstream Oil and Gas Business Activities (SKK Migas) is still observing the development of the global market to be able to spur production of ready-to-sell (lifting) and marketing of LNG. Indonesia’s LNG production still relies on two refineries, namely Bontang and Tangguh. This year’s LNG lifting is also projected to be smaller than the realization in 2020.

Deputy of Finance and Monetization of SKK Migas Arief Setiawan Handoko revealed, in 2020, lifting from the Bontang LNG Plant was 84.9 cargo standards. Of these, 61.4 standard cargoes are for the domestic market and 23.5 standard cargoes for export. Meanwhile, there were 122 lifting standards from the Tangguh LNG Plant, including 21 cargo standards for domestic and 101 cargo standards for the export market.

The Special Task Force for Upstream Oil and Gas Business Activities (SKK Migas) predicts that the Cepu Block and Mahakam Block will experience a decline phase this year. SKK Migas Operations Deputy Julius Wiratno said that this year the Cepu Block managed by ExxonMobil Cepu Limited (ECML) has the potential to decline after entering this year’s peak production.

He continued, Banyu Urip Field’s performance so far has shown results above planning. However, he could not specify how much the production decline will occur this year. What is clear, according to Julius, the decline will not be drastic or at a production level of 220 thousand BPD.

Julius is optimistic that with aggressive and massive activities to seek approval on the development of new wells, there is a hope for an increase.

11/09/2020, JAKARTA, KOMPAS.com – PT Pertamina Gas atau Pertagas memastikan, pipa penyaluran gas ke Kawasan Industri Kuala Tanjung siap beroperasi. Hal tersebut ditandai uji coba penyaluran gas perdana.

Corporate Secretary Pertagas, Fitri Erika, mengatakan, penyaluran gas perdana dilakukan ke salah satu konsumen industri di Kuala Tanjung, PT Domas Agrointi Prima.

“Ini merupakan outlet baru dan sekaligus akan mendukung Kawasan industri Kuala Tanjung menuju kawasan energi bersih,” ujarnya, dalam keterangan tertulis, dikutip Jumat (11/9/2020).

 

Uji coba pengaliran gas ke ruas pipa KualaTanjung sepanjang 23 kilometer (km) ini disebut sebagai komitmen subholding gas menyelesaikan tantangan pembangunan infrastruktur migas di tengah pandemi Covid-19.
“Sebelumnya, dua minggu lalu, kami baru saja meresmikan pengaliran gas perdana ke BOB Bumi Siak Pusako,”

 

Pada tahap awal, pipa gas distribusi ini akan mengalirkan gas sebesar 1.200 MMBTU ke PT. Domas Agrointi Prima.

Namun ke depan, hingga 2028, diharapkan tingkat serapan gas melalui pipa ini akan terus meningkat.

Pada 3 Agustus lalu, konstruksi sudah diselesaikan, dan hari ini kita sudah bisa uji coba alirkan gas,” tutur Erika. Rampungnya pembangunan pipa gas distribusi Kuala Tanjung juga berpotensi untuk meningkatkan utilisasi pipa transmisi ruas Arun-Belawan-Kawasan Industri Medan-KEK Sei Mangke.

 

Di sisi lain, dengan rampungnya konstruksi pipa ini, Pertagas melalui anak usahanya PT Pertagas Niaga akan memiliki potensi untuk meningkatkan niaga gas di sekitar Kuala Tanjung.

 

“Pengaliran gas pipa menawarkan harga gas yang lebih ekonomis bagi industri Sumatera Utara. Semoga ini bisa memberi dampak positif bagi pemanfaatan gas untuk industri dan meningkatkan daya saing industri Sumatera Utara,”
