Jokowi Inaugurates Arun Regasification Terminal
Jakarta. President Joko Widodo on Monday launched the Arun regasification and storage terminal in Aceh, marking a milestone in the country’s efforts to shift its energy source to gas.
The plant produces liquefied natural gas from the now depleted wells of Perta Arun Gas, a subsidiary of state-owned Pertamina Gas.
“The facility will regasify LNG sent from Kilang Tangguh in Papua,” Pertamina Gas president directorHendra Jaya explained on Sunday.
He added that the plant will also provide state utility firm PLN with gas to power its generators in Belawan, Medan.
