As an archipelagic nation, Indonesia faces several logistical challenges around securing adequate electricity supply.

Power cuts pose a problem, and 2% of the country – predominantly in remote areas – does not have access to any electricity.

But small scale LNG is ideally suited for this island nation, particularly for reaching areas where there is no existing pipeline infrastructure. LNG can also provide an alternative to the expensive imported diesel and LPG that many industrial and residential areas rely on.

What’s the scale of LNG demand in Indonesia?  And what will help to unlock this demand? Asti Nuraini Asra, Principal Analyst for Gas and LNG research, discusses the size of the opportunity.


Asti Nuraini Asra thinks small scale LNG demand has the potential to reach 2.5 mmtpa by 2040. And more demand will be unlocked in the industrial sector, once the right infrastructure is in place.
