Indonesian plan to export power from Bantam plant to Singapore

The Indonesian government plans to export most of the power generated at new plants in Bantam in the Riau Islands, reports the Jakarta Post.

The plants will have total capacity of 4,000 megawatts (MW), and the electricity will be sent to Singapore, in a scheme aimed at reducing gas exports to that country.

Energy and Mineral Resources deputy minister Widjajono Partowidagdo says up to 3,000 MW of electricity produced by the new plants will be distributed to Singapore, while the remaining 1,000 MW can be used for Batam.

State electricity utility PLN earlier investigated the feasibility of importing liquefied natural gas from Papua New Guinea, Australia and Iran to make up a shortfall in domestic supply. It says imports will be a last resort if supplies from domestic producers can not be sourced.
