PLN: Gas Tender Held to Accelerate 35,000 MW Power Plant Project

From The Jakarta Post
April 2, 2015

PLN, State electricity company  has said that its plan to hold the prequalification tender for the procurement of liquefied natural gas (LNG) aims to accelerate a 35,000 Megawatt (MW) power plant construction project.

PLN’s director for strategic procurement and primary energy, Amin Subekti, said the company would hold a tender not only to ensure smooth power plant construction but also to secure its gas supply. PLN would auction not only the supply of gas but also its transportation and supplying infrastructure as well as its regasification facilities.

He said PLN had announced studies on the prequalification process, followed by consultation sessions held at the company’s headquarters in Jakarta on Wednesday. Moreover he explained that in the end, the tender winners would create consortiums in which each of them would be permitted to procure gas domestically or through imports, to accommodate and to store, to transport and regasify the gas in every gas-powered electricity plant.

The LNG supplying for power plants with a total capacity of 2,800 MW is aimed at overcoming the supply deficit and to provide electricity peakers in Java. It is also hoped that the LNG supplying can accelerate the electrification and spur economic growth in areas outside Java.

PLN’s director for strategic procurement and primary energy, Amin Subekti, said the company would hold a tender not only to ensure smooth power plant construction but also to secure its gas supply.
“PLN will hold the tender for the power plant construction separately. We will first hold a tender to find the gas supplier. The government aims to realize the 35,000 MW power plant project by any means. So, we decided to hold separate tenders for the power plant construction and its gas supplying,” he said as quoted by Antara in Jakarta on Wednesday.
Amin said the gas procurement’s prequalification stage was ongoing.
PLN would auction not only the supply of gas but also its transportation and supplying infrastructure as well as its regasification facilities.
He said PLN had announced studies on the prequalification process, followed by consultation sessions held at the company’s headquarters in Jakarta on Wednesday.
“We will compile a document in the next month and then we will give them [tender participants] one month to submit their proposals. The tender will hopefully be completed within the next four months,” said Amin.
He further explained that in the end, the tender winners would create consortiums in which each of them would be permitted to procure gas domestically or through imports, to accommodate and to store, to transport and regasify the gas in every gas-powered electricity plant.
Earlier, PLN announced the opening of the prequalification tender for the procurement of 230 million standard cubic feet per day (mmscfd) of LNG for small-scale power plants in regions in central Indonesia.
The LNG supplying for power plants with a total capacity of 2,800 MW is aimed at overcoming the supply deficit and to provide electricity peakers in Java.
It is also hoped that the LNG supplying can accelerate the electrification and spur economic growth in areas outside Java. (ebf)

Goverment to Build New Port in Subang or Indramayu

From The Jakarta Post
April 2, 2015

The government has changed its plan to build a new port in Cilamaya and is seeking a better location in Subang or Indramayu, West Java.

Vice President Jusuf Kalla said the government needed to build a new port but it would not be in Cilamaya.

The Vice President, who visited Cilamaya with several ministers, including Coordinating Maritime Affairs Minister Indroyono Susilo and Transportation Minister Ignasius Jonan on Thursday, said the new port would be built east of Cilamaya, either in Subang or Indramayu.

Kalla said the main reason to move the new port’s location to another regency was because waters in the area were already crowded by offshore mining activities and oil tankers transporting crude oil to Jakarta and other cities.

The government has allocated Rp 34.5 trillion (US$2.6 billion) to construct a new port, as Tanjung Priok Port is deemed too crowded.

South Korean steelmaker POSCO will almost double its investment in Indonesia to $11 billion over the next five years, from $6 billion currently, Chief Economics Minister Hatta Rajasa said on Friday.
The world's fourth-biggest steelmaker, already has a multi-billion dollar joint venture with Indonesian state-owned PT Krakatau Steel, the country's biggest steel producer.
Earlier this year, the South Korean firm's affiliate POSCO Engineering & Construction, formed a consortium to build two 300-megawatt power plants on Indonesia's Sumatra island, worth around $1 billion.
A POSCO spokesman in Seoul said the South Korean firm has yet to make detailed investment commitments in Indonesia, and noted other partners would jointly invest in any projects.
Foreign direct investment in Indonesia stayed strong in the second quarter, showing the G20 member remained a magnet in a troubled global economy and that changes in mining ownership rules are not cutting i…

March Inflation Limits Bank Indonesia’s Room to Cut Interest Rates

From The Jakarta Globe
April 1, 2015

Inflation increased slightly in March, data from the Central Statistics Agency, or BPS, showed on Wednesday, as prices were pushed up by higher prices for fuel and rice and continued weakening of the rupiah.

Analysts said stronger inflation would limit Indonesia’s central bank’s ability to further reduce its key interest rate. The BPS announced March’s headline inflation rate was 6.38 percent, compared with 6.29 percent a month earlier.

“This is broadly in line with our forecast and the consensus median,” said Dian Ayu Yustina, a Jakarta-based economist with Bank Danamon Indonesia.

The administration of President Joko Widodo has reformed the fuel price policy to a regulated price that can fluctuate according to the global oil price and the exchange rate.
Looking forward to the rest of the year, analysts Wai Ho Leong and Angela Hsieh from Barclays said the path of inflation was still benign.

They projected inflation to average 6.5 percent …
