Discover ENGIE activities in Indonesia
ENGIE is active in Indonesia for more than 60 years manages a diverse portfolio of activities: power generation (2,045 MW in operation), exploration and production of natural gas, natural gas infrastructure development and energy services.
Indonesia has one of Southeast Asia’s highest growth rates for electricity demand – mainly driven by the expansion of the transport and industrial sectors – and is in critical need of additional power capacity. To meet the current demand, the country has been generating a vast majority of its power from conventional thermal sources, i.e., oil, coal and gas. ENGIE, as the largest independent power producer in the country is willing to help Indonesia reach its target of developing 35,000 MW of additional generation capacity by 2019. The Group is working on thermal plant projects as well as geothermal and renewable (hydro, solar, wind) energy projects.
PT Paiton Energy
Held by a consortium composed of ENGIE (40.5%), Mitsui (40.5%), Tokyo Electric Power (14%) and PT Batu Hitam Perkasa (5%), PT Paiton Energy is the largest independent power producer (IPP) in Indonesia. Its production facilities comprise units 7 & 8 (each 615 MW) and unit 3 (815 MW) – Indonesia’s first super-critical coal unit. ENGIE manages the plant’s operations through its 59.5% subsidiary PT IPMOMI.
Developing geothermal energy
Since 2011, ENGIE and its partners PT Supreme Energy, Sumitomo Corporation and Marubeni Corporation, have been exploring three geothermal resource areas in the Sumatra region: Muara Laboh, Rajabasa and Rantau Dedap. In 2012, the Group and its partners signed 30-year Power Purchase Agreements with PLN, the state-owned electric utility, for the three projects.
Exploration and production of natural gas
With more than 3 tcm (trillion cubic meters) of proven natural-gas reserves, Indonesia is ranked among the top 12 in the world and top three in the Asia-Pacific region. It lists among the top six exporters of natural gas. More than 70% of its reserves are located offshore, mainly off Natuna Island, in East Kalimantan, South Sumatra and West Papua.
ENGIE holds a 45% share in the Muara Bakau offshore exploration license, in the eastern part of the Kutei basin, alongside Eni who is the operator, with 55%. Eni and ENGIE are developing the Jangkrik Complex Project which is expected to start production in 2017. With proven and probable reserves of 300 million barrels of oil equivalent, this project is a strategic development for the Group (second largest project worldwide in terms of investment) which will help the country meet its growing demand for Liquiefied Natural Gas (LNG).
In September 2011, ENGIE (20%) and ENI (Operator), in consortium with Statoil, Niko Resources and North Ganal Energy were awarded an exploration license for the offshore North Ganal block, located in the same area as Jangkrik field.
Natural Gas Infrastructures
ENGIE is looking at opportunities in large natural gas infrastructures, including gas transportation, distribution and storage. The Group is working on the development of LNG terminals as well as gas pipelines projects.
Tractebel Engineering, a ENGIE subsidiary specialized in providing engineering and consulting services in the energy sector, exerts its expertise on the Indonesian market. Since 2010, the subsidiary has been focusing on Indonesian projects in the hydro, renewable, thermal power, power system, gas transportation and distribution and LNG sectors. Tractebel Engineering has completed a FEED study for a LNG transfer and mooring platform for the Charlie Lampung Floating Storage and Regasification Unit (FSRU) project. In addition, the company is responsible for detaildesign review and supervision services for the strengthening of the West Kalimantan power gridfor a period of 24 months.
