Pertagas Ready to Supply Natural Gas to Jababeka Industrial Estate
PT Pertamina Gas (Pertagas) is building cooperation with one of the subsidiaries of PT Jababeka Tbk, namely PT Jababeka Infrastruktur (JI) as the management of Jababeka Industrial Estate in Cikarang, Bekasi Regency, related to the plan to distribute natural gas to industrial tenants in the area.
The synergy between Pertagas and JI was inaugurated through the signing of a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) on the Joint Study of the Provision of Natural Gas Supply and Infrastructure at Graha Pertamina, Jakarta, Thursday (21/4/2022).
The signing of the MoU was carried out by president director of PT Pertamina Gas Gamal Imam Santoso, Commercial Director of PT Pertamina Gas Kusdi Widodo, President Director of PT Jababeka Infrastruktur Tjahjadi Rahardja and Managing Director of PT Jababeka Infrastruktur Agung Wicaksono.
The distribution of natural gas to jababeka industrial estate is planned to be developed through two schemes. The first scheme is the distribution of gas in the form of CNG (Compressed Natural Gas) by collaborating with subholding gas group, namely PT Pertagas Niaga. The second scheme is through the distribution of natural gas through pipes to be built by Pertagas.
“Currently Subholding Gas has distributed natural gas around 600 MMSCFD in West Java Region. While Pertagas itself has transported gas in the West Java region with a total volume of approximately 260 MMSCFD,” said Gamal.
Gamal hopes that in the future Jl can become a strategic partner of Pertagas for infrastructure development and utilization of natural gas absorption in the West Java region in general and Banten in particular.
Meanwhile, Tjahjadi Rahardja thanked Pertagas for opening a partnership space with Jababeka Group.
“We are grateful that Jababeka Infrastruktur can be given the opportunity to cooperate with Pertagas, related to efforts to provide energy needs for tenants or prospective tenants who will invest in our area,” said Tjahjadi.
The signing of the Pertagas and JI cooperation is a form of Pertamina Gas Subholding commitment to support the government in reducing carbon emissions in 2030. The use of natural gas energy which is categorized as a source of clean energy also supports the Green Industrial Estate to be realized in Jababeka.
