Indonesia's Pertamina to take over state gas utility PGN in Q1 2018

JAKARTA (Reuters) — Indonesian state energy company Pertamina will take over government gas utility PT Perusahaan Gas Negara (PGN) in the first quarter of 2018, the state-owned enterprise ministry said, part of a plan to form a new holding company.

As part of the plan, PGN will first absorb Pertamina gas unit Pertagas, Deputy SOE Minister Edwin Hidayat Abdullah told Reuters on Thursday.

“Pertagas will be part of PGN, so that there’s no duplication of gas pipelines,” Abdullah said.

A spokesman for Pertamina declined to comment.

PGN corporate secretary Rachmat Hutama said in a statement that the new energy holding company would “prevent dualism in the upstream management of domestic natural gas.”

“In addition to accelerating the development of integrated gas infrastructure, this unification can achieve a more equitable distribution of gas,” said Hutama.

Under the plan, a 57% government stake in PGN would be transferred to Pertamina, Hutama said, adding that details of the transition were still subject to discussion.

The plan for Pertamina to take over PGN to simplify management of gas infrastructure in Indonesia dates back to at least 2013.

The global LNG industry is becoming increasingly interconnected as grassroots export projects get off the ground. Another technology route for processing gas into fuels—GTL—is attracting renewed attention due to improving economics. Small-scale solutions for both LNG and GTL are at the forefront of new technological developments, while major projects using more conventional technologies continue to start up around the world.

During this webcast, we will focus on LNG, GTL, gas processing technology developments and deployments, operations, small-scale solutions, transportation, trading, distribution, safety, regulatory affairs, business analysis and more.
