Meeting Java's gas demand: revisiting the infrastructure options
Java is the primary gas market in Indonesia, contributing more than 50% of Indonesia's gas demand in 2014. Demand has grown rapidly in recent years, increasing from 845 mmcfd in 2005 to over 1,850 mmcfd in 2014, equating to around 8% growth per annum. With unmet demand in the power and industrial sectors in particular, we expect strong demand growth to continue in the future. Java's economic significance means that meeting its energy requirements is critical to Indonesian energy policy.
