TEMPO Interactive, Jakarta:The government is conducting negotiations with the United States on its commitments over the export of gas. The negotiation aims to redirect gas exports to fulfill domestic needs instead. Gas exports to Sempra, United States, will be used to fulfill domestic demands.
“The American gas market is currently full because plenty of shale gas reserves have been discovered. After the contract [ends], we can make offer to other buyers,” said Gde Pradnyana, the Upstream Oil and Gas Regulatory Body’s (BP Migas) Head of Public Relations, Security and Formality, in Jakarta on Sunday.
Indonesia is committed to exporting gas to Sempra at the capacity of 3.7 million tonnes per year. Gas for Sempra comes from the liquefied natural gas produced in Tangguh Field, Papua.
