Indonesia gas utility builds LNG terminal for East Java distribution
Indonesia’s state-controlled gas utility company PT Perusahaan Gas Negara (PGN), in cooperation with state port companies, is building a small terminal for liquefied natural gas (LNG) distribution in East Java, the company said in a statement on Friday.
* The terminal is targeted to start operation in the fourth quarter this year, the statement said
* For the early phase, the East Java LNG terminal will have a regasification capacity of just 30 billion British thermal units (btu) per day, or about 30 million cubic feet a day, although the company plans to expand that “based on energy demand growth in East Java and surrounding areas”
* The terminal is expected to improve PGN’s distribution network in East Java for both its industrial-based and household customers, as well as for power generators
