Govt Faces Internal Disagreement over Affordable Industrial Gas Prices

Disagreements persist regarding the low gas absorption at the special price set at $6 per MMBtu. While the allocation is not fully absorbed due to suboptimal absorption from industries benefiting from the policy, uneven supply from PGN is also cited as a contributing factor.

Bisnis, JAKARTA — The Ministry of Energy and Mineral Resources (ESDM) has indicated the sustainability of certain natural gas prices (HGBT) for the new government term in 2025. However, inter-ministerial discussions regarding this matter have not concluded.

The special gas price policy, set at $6 per million British thermal units (MMBtu) for seven specific industrial sectors, is still pending finalization by the Ministry of ESDM in collaboration with the Ministry of Industry and the Ministry of Finance.

Moreover, disagreements persist regarding the low gas absorption at the special price of $6 per MMBtu. While the allocation is not fully absorbed due to suboptimal absorption from industries benefiting from the policy, uneven supply from PT Perusahaan Gas Negara Tbk. (PGAS) or PGN is also cited as a contributing factor.

Moreover, state revenues are further diminished by policies aimed at supplying additional energy to enhance the productivity of the domestic manufacturing industry. "We will propose a meeting with the Ministry of Industry and Finance this week. At the Ministry of ESDM, we are determined to uphold the HGBT policy," stated Minister of ESDM Arifin Tasrif at the Ministry's headquarters in Jakarta on Friday (3/8/2024).
