Indonesia Coal, Gas and Power: 2015 in review and what to look for in 2016
The year ahead will be a busy one for Indonesian energy policy. Two proposals, the single gas aggregator scheme and also the implementation of the new mining law will have a significant impact on the domestic gas and coal markets. 2016 will also be a bumper year in terms of gas and power infrastructure development. For LNG, we expect to see the advancement of several gas infrastructure projects such as the 4-mmpta Bojonegara regas terminal and Bali FSRU. For power, 2016 will be the critical year for the 35 GW power programme. So far, about 10 GW has been awarded. But awarding is one thing, building another. While the government has introduced a few measures to speed up the development process, 2016 will reveal whether the projects actually move ahead.
