As November drew to a close, depressed power prices were seen to persist in the competitive power markets of the Philippines and Singapore. In Singapore, this is hurting the margins of the generation companies, especially new entrants. In the Philippines, low wholesale electricity prices are challenging the economics of combined-cycle plants compared to cheaper coal-fired generation.
Lots of activity on the regulatory front in Indonesia this month. The latest regulation has prioritised gas for transportation, households and small businesses to boost gas demand in these traditionally oil-reliant sectors. Considerations to merge PGN’s and Pertagas’ pipelines into one operation have also been actively discussed. The aim is to capture cost synergies associated with a sole operator and have better planning on gas connectivity.
The coal industry was not neglected either as Indonesia proposed a change to the thermal coal price benchmark formula, effectively raising royalties on producers.
