No Gas Import from Singapore, PLN Says

State power company PLN said it will not import gas from Singapore but will cooperate with Singaporean companies to build gas infrastructure. PLN business director for Central Java Amir Rosidin said recently that the company and Singapore's Pavilion Energy and Keppel Corporation will build small-scale LNG regasification terminals in Natuna and Tanjung Pinang. The terminals will be adjacent to the LNG terminal hub located in Singapore. He said there is no gas import from Singapore, this is only a partnership for gas infrastructure developers and the government has not determined the price and the value because it is still being studied for feasibility. The cooperation is to create a framework concept to distribute PLN's LNG to power plants in Tanjung Pinang and Natuna. Amir said that the partnership is aimed at lowering the cost of electricity production, as the proximity will cut operating costs and basic production cost in Sumatra. (tempo)
