Producing around 5.3 billion SCF of gas daily in 2022, Indonesia utilized domestically 68% of its produced gas. The surplus was exported in the form of LNG and pipeline gas.
Here is the breakdown of the utilization of the produced gas.
- Domestic Industrial use – 29%
- LNG for export – 22%
- LNG for domestic use – 9%
- Fertilizers – 12.5%
- Electricity generation – 11.5%
- Exported Pipeline gas – 11%
- LPG – 1.5%
The domestic need for gas is expected to grow in the form of gas and LNG as gas pipelines and FSRUs (floating storage and regasification unit) is being built.
Despite this, Indonesia will continue to have a surplus of gas in the coming years as the Tangguh LNG train #3 will go on stream by the end of 2023 and the Abadi LNG plant will be operating by the end of 2030, according to Rizal Fajar Muttaquien of SKK Migas.
