Development of natural gas industry in Indonesia.


Natural gas has been growing in demand in the past several years with the growing use of gas as source industrial and household energy, as well as feedstock for fertilizer industry.

Gas is the country's third main source of energy after oil fuel (BBM) and coal. Gas accounted for 13.7% of the country's energy consumption in 2008.

Shortage in the supply of natural gas in the country has affected the operations of a number of industries notably fertilizer industry.

The gas price, which is not dictated by the market mechanism for domestic consumption has led to producers seeking to export most or all of their production resulting in scarcity in supply on the domestic market. The price of gas on the domestic market has always been cheaper than in export market.

The government sought to sort out the problem with the Domestic Market Obligation (DMO) policy and slapped restriction on gas exports from new gas field such as Donggi--Senoro to better guarantee supply on the domestic market.

The government has issued a number of policies to accommodate strong demand from industrialists to use as much as possible gas for domestic consumption. Among the policies include the change in the point of gas delivery from the plant gate in Singapore to the well heads in Indonesia, a move seen that could change the process of gas cost calculation and selling price.

Natural Gas Composition

Natural gas is made up of hydrocarbon gases, primarily methane (C1). It is usually found deep underground, often with deposits of oil, and is pumped out together with oil.

After it reaches the surface, the gas is separated from any oil or water that may have been mixed in the oil deposit. It is then processed to remove impurities, other gases such as propane and butane, and any remaining water or water vapor.

Natural gas differs from LPG (Liquefied Petroleum Gas / LPG) in its component, with LPG primarily made up of Propane (C3). LPG is distributed by vessel, while natural gas by pipeline.

Energy generated from natural gas is measured in calorie. The energy content is not the same among gas from different wells. The lowest calorie of natural gas in Indonesia is 5991 Kcal /m3 and the highest is 11127 Kcal /m3.

Natural gas distributed in Banten, Karawang, Bogor and Jakarta has a calorie of 7703-11127 Kcal /m3, and natural gas distributed in Cirebon has the lowest calorie of 5991 Kcal /m3.

Natural gas reserves to be depleted in 59 years

Indonesia's potential gas reserves recorded in 2008 totaled 170 TSCF with production rate per year of 2.87 TSCF. Based on the production to reserve ratio, Indonesia's gas reserves will last for 59 years from 2008.

The reserves could shrink or increase depending on new discovery. The latest major discoveries were in Tangguh, Papua and Masela, in southern Maluku.

There was almost none new gas drilling in the past three years. In 2007 drilling reached 22,626 feet.

Producing gas fields in Indonesia


The Donggi-Senoro gas fields in Central Sulawesi are operated by PT Pertamina EP and JOB Pertamina-Medco E&P Tomori. Development of the Donggi field is integrated in the area of Matindok, which includes the Donggi field, the Matindok field, the Maleoraja field and the Minahaki field. The Senoro field is the expansion of the Senoro gas field and the Tiaka oil field.

Proven reserves in the Matindok and Senoro blocks totals 2.3 trillion cubic feet (Tcf). Gas production from the Donggi Senoro fields could increase by 50 million metric standard cubic feet per day (MMSCFD) with the discovery of new reserves.

In the Senoro field there is potential addition of 0.6 TCF in reserve and in Matindok 0.76 TCF. The two fields, therefore, could turn out 455 mmscfd per day for 15 years. Investment needed for the development of the Senoro field is estimated to reach US$ 800 million and investment in Matindok at US$ 790 million.

The government has announced that gas from the two fields are all for domestic consumption, but the government may have to change the decision to attract investors development of the fields has been delayed long over disagreement on the government policy? The investors want that they are allowed to export part of the production. The consortium has proposed a scheme under which 70 MMSCFD of the production was for domestic consumption and 335 MMSCFD for exports. They considered the scheme most feasible.

Gas from the fields is expected to be used by PT Pupuk Sriwijaya (Pusri), PT Perusahaan Listrik Negara (PLN) and PT Panca Amara Utama (PAU). The three needs a total gas supply of 211 million MSCFD.

The consortium of PT Pertamina and PT Medco has agreed to lower the gas selling price to US$5-US$6 per MMBTU from US$ 6.16 per MMBTU, but they set requirement that the buyers must be ready in receiving the gas and there should be certainty in payment.

Tangguh field

Gas production tends to be stable

The country's gas production in the past several years has relatively been stable or unchanged with production rate averaging 2.9 TSCF (trillion standard cubic feet).

The producers include Pertamina, holders of Pertamina Joint Operation Body (JOB), Pertamina Technical Assistance Contract (TAC) and Pertamina Joint Operation Body--Production Sharing Contract (JOB-PSC), and production sharing contract (PSC).

PSC contractors accounted for the largest part of the gas production contributing 2.5 TSCF, followed by Pertamina contributing 300 MSCF.

Production by holders of Pertamina JOB contracts and Pertamina TAC were small accounting for 18 million MSCF and 30 MSCF respectively in 2006 to 2008.

PSC contractors account for 88% of the country's gas production on the average with Pertamina accounting for 10% and Pertamina JOB and Pertamina TAC contractors accounting for 0.7% each

Utilization of natural gas

Natural gas is used by fertilizer industry, LPG industry, (liquefied natural gas (LNG) industry, condensate industry, gas drilling, etc.

Most or an average of 1.3 TSCF of the country's natural gas production is processed into LNG for exports with only 320 million MSCF for domestic consumption every years.

Total E&P Indonesie largest producer

Total E&P Indonesie, a PSC holder, is he largest producer of natural gas in Indonesia. The company produces gas from offshore field in East Kalimantan. In 2008, its production reached 1,009,972,142 MMSCF.

Total E&P Indonesie contribute around 40% to the country's total production of natural gas. Other major producers among PSC holders include Exxon Mobil, Conoco Phillips Grissik Ltd, Vico Indonesia and Petrochina Jabung Ltd.

Exports of natural gas on the decline

Indonesia exports most of its natural gas production with a smaller part left for domestic consumption. Exports have been made to Singapore, Japan, China, Korea, Thailand and Malaysia. Exports are mainly in the form of LNG, but there are also through transmission pipeline.

Domestic consumption of natural gas in the 2003-2007 period totaled 20,120,000 MMSCFD or 48 percent of the total production and exports totaled 21,550,000 MMSCFD or 52 percent of the total production.

Since 2009, the export percentage began to decline. In 2009 exports were less than 50 percent of the production only 46.08 percent or 3,667 MMSCFD.

An export of natural gas in LNG has tended to decline from year to year but exports through pipelines tended to increase. In 2007, the country's total exports of LNG fell 8.5 percent to 1,076,785 MMSCFD. In 2008, the exports fell further by 0.8 percent to 1,067,796 MMSCFD.

In the first 10 months of 2009, the country's LNG exports totaled only 841,911 MMSCFD or around 84,191 MMSCFD per month or lower than the average of 88,983 MMSCFD per months in the previous year.

Meanwhile, exports through pipelines were growing such as through the pipeline transporting gas from Grissik in central Sumatra to Singapore.

Volume of gas exports through pipelines has fluctuated in the past years but tended to rise. In 2007, exports through pipelines reached 297,000 MMSCFD, but fell 20 percent to 235,000 MMSCFD in 2008. In 2009, exports shot up reaching 291,000 MMSCFD in the first 10 months of hat year.

In he coming years gas exports are expected to shrink with growing domestic requirement.

Exports contracts

Gas export contracts are generally long term. The country still has a number of long term contracts to honor and some of the contracts are effective only as from this year.

A long term 18-year contract for gas exports to Singapore between Premier Oil Natuna BV and Sembgas of Singapore signed in 2008 will be effective only as from this year. Gas is to be exported through submarine pipelines owned by Conoco Philips.

New export contracts in 2009 included one for 125,000 tons per year from the Tangguh field in Papua signed between Pertamina and a Japanese buyer Tohoku Electric Power Co.

Gas from Tangguh is exported in the form of LNG processed in the Tangguh LNG plant. The plant has a production capacity of 7.6 million tons of LNG a year. Around 7.4 million tons of LNG to be produced by the plant has been sold under contracts to a number of buyers. The contract buyers include Sempra Energy Marketing Co for 3.7 million tons per year, Fujian 2.6 million tons per year, and Korean buyers Posco and K-Power 1.1 million tons per year.

Meanwhile, a number of old contract will expire this year in 2010 such as one signed with Japanese western buyers.

According to plan, in 2011, the government will reduce new contracts for gas exports to guarantee domestic requirement.

Domestic gas requirement growing

The country needs natural gas for various purposes such as feedstock for fertilizer industry and as fuel for ceramic, and textile industries and as household fuel, and to feed gas fired power plants and as a source of energy in oil and gas mines.

Domestic gas requirement averages 5,557.6 MMSCFD in 2009 and 2010. Central and southern parts of Sumatra and western Java (Region III) are the largest consumers of gas with consumption averaging 2,994.7 MMSCFD in 2009-2014.

Gas as fuel is used by PGN of Batam, PGN of Pekanbaru, and PGN of West Java and LPG plants such as those of PT Ogspiras Basya Pratama in Palembang and PT. Titis Sampurna in Prabumulih. Industrial consumers using gas as fuel include PT. Asahimas in West Java.

Gas used to generate power is used by various power generating plants such as PLTG of Duri, PLTG of Teluk Lembu, PLTGU of Asrigita Prasarana, PLTG of Talang Dukuh, PLTG of Energi Musi Makmur, PLN of Injiniring, PLN of Kramasan, PLN of Borang, PLN of Muara Karang, PLN of Tanjung Priok, PLN of Muara Tawar, and PLN of Cilegon.

PT. Chevron Pacific Indonesia uses most of its gas production to generate energy for own and local requirement and for Joint Operation Body (JOB) of Suryaraya Teladan.

Gas feedstock is used by fertilizer factories such as those of PT Pupuk Sriwijaya in Palembang, and PT Pupuk Kujang in West Java.

The second largest consumer of natural gas is the eastern part of Java (Region V) with consumption averaging 843.8 MMSCFD mainly for combined cycle power plant (PLTGU) of Gresik owned by PLN. Petrochemical company PT Petrokimia Gresik also needs natural gas as feedstock. PGN, the state gas distributor by gas mainly to be sold as fuel for industries and household.

Indonesia is one of the world's largest producer of natural gas but its domestic requirement is not yet entirely secured as the country has long term contracts to exports a large part of its gas output. The government, however, has pledged to reduce exports to guarantee domestic supply.

Electricity sector the largest gas consumer

The electricity sector is the largest user of gas in the country with consumption averaging 2,130.7 MMSCFD in 2009 to 2014.

Gas requirement for the electricity sector is expected to decline in 2012 through 2014 demand from contract buyers will fall sharply despite there will be new demand from new contract customers in the central part of Sumatra and eastern Java in that period.

The second largest part of domestic gas requirement is for fuel averaging 1,385.5 MMSCFD, Demand from contract buyers will also fall despite an increase in demand from some of the customers starting 2011 in central part of Sumatra and central Java starting 2011.

The third largest is for feedstock mainly for fertilizer and petrochemical industries that need gas averaging 1,145.6 MMSCFD. The gas requirement for feedstock is expected to remain flat as there is no new fertilizer and petrochemical factories expected in the near future.

Requirement exceeds supply

Indonesia is one of the world's largest gas producers but a large part of its production is for export under long term contracts with foreign buyers resulting in shortage in domestic supply.

In the next several years, Indonesia is still expected to have a deficit in domestic supply. The shortage is estimated to reach around 10 MMSCFD in 2011 and it is forecast to rise to 170 MMSCFD in 2015.

Domestic supply includes gas for the electricity sector from gas producers under contracts with priority consumers PLN and IPPs, which are 51% owned by PLN and gas for PGN supplied by producers under contracts.

Domestic gas supply especially for PGN customers is expected to decline by 65 MMSCFD with the expiration of contract between PGN of Muara Karang and PT, Pertamina Hulu Energy ONWJ.

Around 165 industrial customers and 81 commercial customers of PGN will suffer as a result of the shortfall in gas supply; PGN also plans to cut gas supply 20% in April 1, 2010

BP Migas has told PT Medco Energy Internasional Tbk, the operator of Singa field of the Lematang block to supply PGN with 50 MMSCFD of gas.

Originally Medco planned to supply the gas to Chevron, which planned to use the gas for its project of enhanced oil recovery (EOR) steam flood in the Duri field of Rokan block, operated by Chevron Pacific Indonesia for three years.

PGN will buy gas from Medco at a price of US$5.7 per million Btu (1,000 MSCFD). The gas allocation will be distributed for industries in the western part of Java.

PLN short of gas

PT, PLN (Persero) has so far secured only 1,150 MMSCFD of gas for 2010 less than half of its total requirement of 2,538 MMSCFD.

Among the regions having deficit in gas supply include Belawan, in North Sumatra, Belawan needs 175 MMSCFD of gas but it has secured only 38 MMSCFD.

PLN plans to hold negotiations with PGN on additional supply of 150 MMSCFD, PGN will supply 150 MMSCFD from LNG Receiving terminal, which is yet to be built and expected to be operational only in September 2011.

Total gas requirement of Jakarta is around 575 MMSCFD until 2011, The increase in requirement followed the capacity expansion of Muara Karang power plant, PLN has secured gas supply under contracts include only 30 MMSCFD from PGB and 120 MMSCFD from PT, Pertamina Hulu Energy Offshore North West Java (Pertamina HE ONWJ), therefore, it still needs additional supply of 425 MMSCFD.

Other regions having deficit in gas supply is East Java with a shortage of 300 MMSCFD, East Java's gas requirement is 550 BBTUD this year as against supply available of 250 MMSCFD.

PLN has secured gas supply commitment for the years of 2011 and 2012 averaging 930 MMSCFD, PLN will receive gas supply of 720 MMSCFD from three LNG receiving terminals yet to be built including one each in Jakarta to supply 400 MMSCFD, in East Java to supply 160 MMSCFD, and in Medan to supply 160 MMSCFD.

PLN will also have gas supply from the offshore Kepodang gas field in the Java Sea operated by Petronas, The gas supply will be used to feed the combined cycle power generating plant (PLTGU) of Tambak Lorok averaging 116 MMSCFD, Other additional supply of 60 MMSCFD from Pertamina will be used for power plants in Bali.

Gas for PLN could be fully supplied if the project of LNG receiving terminals to be built in North Sumatra has been built and operational. The project is to be built by PGN alone with LNG to be supplied form Tangguh, The terminal to be built Western Java will be built jointly with Pertamina with LNG to be supplied from Qatar.

Contracts with domestic buyers

In 2009 a number of gas sales and purchase contracts were signed between producers and domestic buyers such as those from the electricity, fertilizer, petrochemicals and manufacturing sectors.

The contracts included four worth US$170,19 million in the electricity sector, six valued at US$284,48 million in the fertilizer and petrochemical sector and two valued at US$ 10,82 million in the manufacturing sector.

In 2009, altogether there were 21 contracts for gas and LPG sales and purchase contract between domestic suppliers and buyers, The contracts include four for 100 TBTU and 1 million metric tons of LPG.

In 2002 through 2008 there were 96 such contracts for 14 tcf of gas. In the 2003-2009 period, 137 head of agreements (HOA), gas sales and purchase agreement (PJBG) and amendment to gas sales and purchase agreements were signed.

In February, 2010, six contracts were signed to be supplied through pipelines for more than 75,900 MMSCFD valued at US$ 540 million. The contracts included 3 HoA, 2 Amendment to gas sales and purchase agreement and 1 gas sales and purchase agreement.

Around 65,340 MMSCFD of gas bought by Pertamina would be used as feedstock for natural gas liquefaction (NGL) plant in to be built in South Sumatra by Pertamina Gas (Pertagas) and El of South Korea.

The NGL project is estimated to cost US$192 million with contractor PT Tripatra Engineers and Contractor.

Construction of the plant, which will need 350 MMSCFD of gas as feedstock was to start in March 2010 producing 540 tons of LPG, 150 tons of propane and 2,150 barrels of condensate per day.

Other contracts include one between Pertamina EP as the producer and Medco EP Indonesia, Gas for 1,39 Btu, which will be used by Medco to help pump out more oil from its Ibul field in South Sumatra Extension (SSE) block, Contract is valued at US$3,7 per million Btu (1,000 MSCFD).

Two manufacturing companies buying gas include PT Pelangi Cakrawala Losarang with factory in Losarang, Indramayu.

Based on a regulation of the ESDM minister No,03/ 2010, article 6 point 3, the priority in the use of gas in the country is given to four sectors--artificial lift and enhanced oil recovery to increase oil production, fertilizer industry, power plants and other industries.

Coal Bed Methane to offset deficit

Based on the Indonesian gas balance for 2009-2020 issued by the government, gas from 10 first coal bed methane (CBM) contracts has been taken into account potential supply.

In order to make up for the deficit in d production and total supply, the government launched CBM crash program, CBM projects in two CBM contract under the program are expected to start turning out at least 450 MMSCFDD of gas in 2011.

So face there has been 14 CBM contracts including 10 contracts signed in 2007

--2008 and 4 in August 2009, In 2010 the government offered new system of contract for natural gas producer called gross production sharing contract (GPSC) instead of previous system of PSC/ KKS.

The difference between PSC contract PSC and GPSC lies in whether there is cost recovery or there is not, Under the PSC contract the government will pay all cost spent by the investors when CBM is discovered and produced, Under GPSC, there is no cost recovery, All investment is part of the capital of the investor.

Indonesia gas CBM reserves estimated to total 453.3 trillion cubic feet (TCF) in 11 hydrocarbon basins or the second ;largest in the world, Around 112.47 TCF of the reserves are proven and 57.60 RCF are potential reserves.

The largest reserves are in the South Sumatra basins holding a reserve of 183 TCF, Barito basin with reserves of 102 TCF, Kutai basin with reserves of 80.4 TCF and the Central Sumatra basins 52.2 TCF.

The government to build distribution and transmission networks

Limited availability of transmission and distribution networks is a one of the problems in increasing the use of gas, Early 2010, the government issued a ministerial regulation No. 0225 Year 2010 on National Master Plan of Transmission and Distribution of natural gas 2010-2025.

Under the decision gas networks are divided into five categories--open access, dedicated downstream, dedicated upstream, for own use and city gas, According to plan, the networks to be built include networks of Sumatra, networks of Aceh--Lhokseumawe, networks of Aceh- North Sumatra, Central Sumatra--South Sumatra--Lampung, networks of Lampung--West Java, networks of Java, networks of Banten--DKI--West Java, networks of Central Java--East Java, Networks of Kalimantan, networks of East Kalimantan, networks of Sulawesi, and networks of Maluku--Papua.

Networks of Transmission and distribution

Currently there are 4 networks of natural gas transmission and 3 networks of natural gas distribution in Indonesia. Transmission networks are:

South Sumatra--West Java (South Sumatra To West Java / SSWJ) This network is more than 1,000 km long built to transport gas from the Grissik and Pagardewa gas fields of ConocoPhillips and Pertamina, This pipeline is the longest gas pipe in Indonesia serving to help solve energy problem in western Java.


This network of gas pipeline is used to carry gas from Pertamina to power plant in Sicanang, Medan.


This network is 536 km long with a transporting capacity of 420 MMSCFDD, This network is operated by PT, Transportasi Gas Indonesia (Transgasindo), a subsidiary of PGN, Since 1998, this network of gas pipes has been used to channel gas from the gas field of ConocoPhillips in South Sumatra to Caltex in Duri, Caltex uses the gas to help pump out crude oil in it's enhance oil recovery (EOR) project and to generate power in the project.


This network of gas transmission pipes is 477 km long from Grissik to Singapore with a carrying capacity of 350 MMSCFDD, This network, which is operated by Transgasindo supplies gas for Singapore.

A network of gas distribution pipelines in the country is operated by PGN, The networks cover Jakarta and part of cities in West Java, East Java and Sumatra, The total length of the networks of distribution pipelines is 3,480 km with a capacity of 1,103 MMSCFD.

Plans for networks of distribution 2010

The use of natural gas for households in the country has been increasing necessitating development of more gas distribution pipelines.

Development of networks of gas distribution for households is a national priority under the program of energy diversification, reduction of fuel subsidy, provision of clean and cheap energy and conversion of kerosene into LPG to economize on oil.

The government has built networks of natural gas infrastructure for distribution to households as the private sector has little interest in the business area.

Networks of gas distribution are owned by the central government but their management is handed over to the business sector through auctions.

In 2009, the government built a number of networks of natural gas distribution pipelines for households including in Palembang and Surabaya.

Networks in Palembang are built in the lower districts of Siring Agung and Lorok Pakjo, benefiting 3,310 households.

In Surabaya, the networks are built in the lower district of Kalirungkut and Rungkut Kidul, to serve 2,900 households, Gas for Palembang is supplied by PT Medco E&P Indonesia and for Surabaya by PT Lapindo Brantas.

In 2010, a number of project of networks of natural gas for households will be built in Depok and Bekasi, West Java, Sidoarjo in East Java and Tarakan, East Kalimantan.

The networks in Depok will be built in the lower districts of Beji and Beji Timur, and in Bekasi in Perumnas Bumi Bekasi Baru, In Tarakan the networks will be built in the lower districts of Karang Balik and Sebengkok, and in Sidoarjo, the networks will be built in Medaeng, Tambaksawah, Ngingas and Wedoro.

In each of the cities between 3,000 and 4,000 households will benefit from the networks.

Gas for the Tarakan networks will be supplied by Medco E&P, for Depok and Bekasi networks will be supplied by PT Pertamina EP; and for the ones in Sidoardjo it be supplied by PT Lapindo Brantas.

Prospects and Conclusion

Indonesia is one of the world's largest producers of natural gas but its gas supply still falls short of domestic requirement. The shortage in domestic supply is caused by large exports under long term contracts with foreign buyers such as in Japan, South Korea and Taiwan.

Meanwhile, domestic gas requirement has continued to increase especially after the government's diversification program in sources of energy in its bid to economize on more expensive oil. The growing demand for gas has resulted in wider deficit in supply. The deficit is feared to widen in the coming years unless the diversification program is successful, Domestic gas requirement is growing fast especially with growing use to generate power and fuel industries, The largest gas consumer in the country is the electricity sector, followed by the manufacturing sector and the household sector.

The government has sought to cope with the deficit in domestic supply by adopting a new policy giving priority in the allocation of gas output for domestic supply. Under the policy, gas produced by new contractors including those holding renewed contracts are required to give priority to selling their gas to local consumers to help boost domestic industry. For Medco is required to sell gas from its Singa field to PGN, which will use it to fuel domestic industries, Previously Medco sold the gas to PT, Chevron Pacific Indonesia.

The government also seeks to solve gas supply deficit by encouraging the production and use of CBM as new industrial fuel. However, supply is also hampered by inadequate availability of transmission and distribution networks to facilitate distribution to the end users. All gas production centers are generally located far away from the consumers that gas transmission and distribution infrastructure is needed.

Among the steps taken to cope with the problems in distribution include plans to build LNG receiving terminals in a number of places including North Sumatra, western and eastern Java and distribution networks in a number of city areas. The government has issued a blue print for gas transmission and distribution systems to be built in 2010-2025.

The prospects of business in natural gas in the country are encouraging as gas is more efficient than oil as fuel. Gas, of which the country still has large reserves, has been used as a cheaper alternative source of energy beside coal.

The fact that gas reserves in the country could still last for the next 60 years will make the prospects more encouraging when the country's oil reserves are dwindling fast. In addition, the country also has large reserve of other type of gas in the form of CBM.
