Chairman of Indonesian Gas Society /
Chairman Organizing Committee of IndoGAS 2019

While IndoGAS conferences provide a deep dive into the local Indonesian gas industry, they also look at international trends and are now considered to be the premier natural gas and LNG industry gatherings in the region. IndoGAS 2019 will be a landmark event that deals with strategic, regulatory, technical and commercial aspects of the gas business for industry leaders, legislators, experts and committed professionals that are regulating, developing, operating and financing Asia/Pacific natural gas, LNG and energy infrastructure.

The demand for natural gas continues to rise in Indonesia and its neighbors, against a backdrop of all the countries in the region strivingto achieve security of energy supply. Amongst the challenges that the industry faces are how to improve the availability, deliverability and affordability of natural gas, upstream and downstream, and how to balance demand and supply through local production, exports and imports in order to achieve the best business outcomes for investors, the best prices for consumers and the best strategic outcomes for the host country. For Indonesia, this critically includes a focus away from Java and Sumatra to other parts of the archipelago that need energy to stimulate economic growthand provide social equity.

New Indonesian Government regulations have been implemented to ease barriers to energy investment, avert energy crises and provide impetus to the energy industry by, for example, encouraging the building of integrated energy infrastructure to connect producers with customers. There is a new focus on village industries, part of President Joko Widodo’s vision of building Indonesia from its outer regions and one of his Government’s nine “key agendas”. In addition to the development of gas industry, there is also a recognation that renewable energy must be developed in parallel as a measure for meeting national energy mix target by 2025

There will be no shortage of opportunities for investors, producers, consumers, service providers and financiers in Indonesia and ASEAN in the next decade, and IndoGAS 2019 will provide a critical platform to address this and other issues:

  • The need to build and implement national strategies for growing energy infrastructure, the economy, skills and social benefits while protecting the environment and keeping people healthy
  • How to fund and develop the business opportunities needed to deliver national goals – particularly in Indonesia, a nation of more than 17,000 islands for most of which utility-scale energy systems don’t work?
  • Where to find, and how to harness, the $1 trillion needed for regional energy growth in the next decade?
  • Is gas delivering on its promise as the “transition fuel” between the past of coal and oil and the low carbon/no carbon future?
  • What innovative new technologies can help us exploit Indonesia’s gas and renewable energy sources more efficiently?


IndoGAS 2019, the 9th International Indonesia Gas Conference & Exhibition, will attract Government officials, global natural gas industry executives and professionals, service providers, technology developers and financial engineers to come together to discuss the roadmap to our energy future.


We look forward to welcoming you to IndoGAS 2019 in the heart of the amazing City of Jakarta.

Gas & LNG Business Forum
Energy Independence and national energy security are key elements of national development. Optimal, sustainable and efficient uses of energy across all sectors of the economy are crucial to support national economic growth targets. Growth must be carefully managed, and a national strategic energy plan must be maintained. Indonesia’s primary energy production is expected to reach 400 million tons of oil equivalents (MTOE) by 2025 from its current level of 220 MTOE. Energy intensity is also increasing, with a target for primary energy use per capita in 2025 of1.4 TOE (from its current level of 0.9 TOE). Indonesia’s energy consumption today is still dominated by oil and coal, but there is a shift towards gas (and to a lesser extent renewable). To hasten gas uptake, improvements in gas infrastructure are required, and gas supply and demand must be balanced in order to deliver affordable gas to end customers in all parts of Indonesia.

Participants in this Forum will discuss specific challenges and steps required from Government at all levels, investors, financiers, gas suppliers, gas infrastructure developers and gas customers to deliver the outcomes that Indonesia needs.

Strategic Panel Discussion 1
Indonesia Gas and LNG Supply and Demand : Upstream & Downstream Perspectives

Natural gas is a key element of Indonesia’s energy security. Taking into account that 55% of Indonesian gas demand is concentrated in Java, it is understandable that the market potential and the supply deficit are largest on Java compared with other areas of Indonesia. Within Java, the area of highest deficit is West Java, where gas demand is forecast to grow 500% between 2015 and 2030.

Eastern Indonesia, on the other hand, does not have a supply deficit. Gas has the potential to solve most of that region’s energy problems (high cost/low availability). However, gas infrastructure is a prerequisite to make the dispersed market centers accessible, but at the moment is almost non-existent. LNG is expected to be the answer for most of eastern Indonesia’s gas needs, but needs careful planning and huge capital investment.

This panel will discuss on gas supply availability, gas demand and affordable price to domestic market.

3. Fabrizio Trilli, Managing Director, ENI Indonesia*
11.30 - 12.30
Strategic Panel Discussion 2 – Gas Infrastructure Development in Indonesia
In order to satisfy Government targets for gas take-up and enable successful oil to gas conversion, gas infrastructure (inter-island Transportation and city gas networks, mini LNG plants, LNG regasification and distribution networks, CNG, LPG) must be built without delay. The National Gas Road Map/Master Plan has been developed by the Government based on assumptions about availability of gas supply that are dependent on infrastructure investments and developments starting immediately.

Participants in this panel will discuss on infrastructures including development of LNG plants, regasification unit, and gas pipeline to domestic markets. And the need to incentivize gas infrastructure investors through enlightened regulation that is derived from, and supported by, sound strategic and economic planning at national level, and by cooperation among gas industry stakeholders.

Networking Lunch

13.30 - 15.00 Strategic Panel Discussion 3 - Economics of FSRU and Small-Medium Scale LNG Receiving Terminals and Regasification Plants.
The proliferation of FSRU and small/medium scale liquefaction plants plays an important role in the gas value chain and has helped significantly to expand the LNG market. These technologies will be fundamentally important in Indonesia, an archipelago much of which (outside the largest islands) is not amenable to large transmission/distribution solutions for gas or for power. Panelists will share information/ ideas on tackling the economic challenges in developing these types of projects.

15.00 - 16.30
Strategic Panel Discussion 4 – Global LNG Supply Demand
Significant new supply will come online before 2021, mostly from the US Gulf Coast and Australia.

Underlying demand for LNG will struggle to keep pace with new supply additions in the short to medium term. US LNG short run marginal costs will significantly influence global pricing in the midst of the oversupplied market. Contractual preferences of buyers are shifting towards shorter duration, small volumes and de-linkage from oil prices, although oil-linked indexation remains prevalent outside the EU. As the market becomes increasingly complex, several distinct “need-based” buyer segments are emerging. Suppliers and traders need to adapt in order to cope with these fundamental changes.

Strategic Panel Discussion 5 - LNG to Power
Indonesian gas has immensely strong growth potential. Its long-term health will be driven by new investment and steadily improving market access from many of the organizations represented in this room today.
Strong power demand growth will driven by industrial growth and electrification, with particular emphasis on eastern Indonesia. This translates into an additional 38.5 Giga watts of power capacity that is needed, requiring $120 billion of new capital through to 2025; not to mention the similar amount of investment capital that will be required to build the infrastructure necessary to distribute gas throughout the archipelago.
LNG and natural gas are absolutely key fuel sources that will be needed to feed our power-hungry economic growth, and key to the eventual transition away from coal and towards a low carbon future.
