Indonesia plans to export 16 cargoes of liquefied natural gas (LNG) per year to Singapore starting 2020, an official said.

The LNG will come from Train-3 of Tangguh LNG Refinery based on an auction by BP Berau, Director General of Oil and Gas of the Energy and Mineral Resources Ministry Djoko Siswanto said in Jakarta on Tuesday.

"We received approval from the government last Friday. The price is good. If I am not mistaken, it is 12.33 percent of Japan Crude Cocktail (JOC). But I will check it again," he stated after opening a trilateral meeting between Indonesia, Japan, and the United States.

Under the contract, 84 cargoes of LNG will be delivered in five years. In the first stage, four cargoes of LNG will be shipped, and later 16 cargoes of LNG will be shipped every year until 2025, he noted.

The Tangguh Train-3 Refinery project costs an estimated US$8 billion and is projected to be able to produce 700 million standard cubic feet per day.

The Indonesian government is looking into the possibility of cooperation with the US and Japan to develop LNG business to support their respective national energy security.

"There are many possible kinds of cooperation discussed at the forum of three countries this time, including the development of technology and the export and import of LNG," Chief of the Upstream Oil and Gas Regulatory Special Task Force (SKK Migas) Dwi Soetjipto remarked.

Soetjipto revealed that the market for Indonesia`s LNG is still widely open and that investors will have a lot of business opportunities if they invest in Indonesia.

When it comes to LNG, Indonesia is focusing on developing the existing natural resources, developing infrastructures to ensure LNG supplies, and managing LNG-based economy more properly.

Soetjipto further noted that the market for Indonesia`s LNG is still widely open and that investors will have a lot of business opportunities if they invest in Indonesia.

Director General of Oil and Gas of the Energy and Mineral Resources Ministry Djoko Siswanto stated at the Indonesia-US-Japan LNG workshop that Indonesia has natural gas reserves of 135.55 trillion standard cubic feet (TSCF).

"Indonesia still has the potential, and so we need to cooperate with other parties to manage the potential and invite investors," Siswanto remarked.

Of the total gas reserves, 99.06 TSCF are proven reserves, 21.26 TSCF are potential reserves, and 18.23 TSCF are probable reserves, he said.

Meanwhile, representative of the US Embassy in Indonesia Heather Variava explained at the workshop that the US has huge LNG reserves and is capable of developing LNG production technology.

"We have experiences in processing LNG and developing technology that I think is quite reliable. In the future, such thing may become mutually beneficial cooperation with Indonesia," he added.

Representative of the Japanese Embassy in Indonesia, Keiichi Ono, revealed that Japan is a longstanding buyer of Indonesia`s LNG.

He noted that both Japan and Indonesia need to step up cooperation in LNG trade in view of declining global LNG supplies.

Looking ahead, the three countries hope to realize the LNG business cooperation more intensively by integrating their capability in fulfilling energy needs. (ant)

Nyepi is a Balinese "Day of Silence" that is commemorated every Isakawarsa(Saka new year) according to the Balinese calendar (in 2019, it falls on March 7). It is a Hindu celebration mainly celebrated in BaliIndonesia. Nyepi, a public holiday in Indonesia, is a day of silence, fasting, and meditation for the Balinese. The day following Nyepi is also celebrated as New Year's Day. On this day, the youth of Bali in the village of Sesetan in South Bali practice the ceremony of Omed-omedan or 'The Kissing Ritual' to celebrate the new year. The same day celebrated in India as Ugadi.

Observed from 6 a.m. until 6 a.m. the next morning, Nyepi is a day reserved for self-reflection, and as such, anything that might interfere with that purpose is restricted. The main restrictions are no lighting fires (and lights must be kept low); no working; no entertainment or pleasure; no traveling; and, for some, no talking or eating at all. The effect of these prohibitions is that Bali's usually bustling streets and roads are empty, there is little or no noise from TVs and radios, and few signs of activity are seen even inside homes. The only people to be seen outdoors are the Pecalang, traditional security men who patrol the streets to ensure the prohibitions are being followed.

Although Nyepi is primarily a Hindu holiday, non-Hindu residents and tourists are not exempt from the restrictions. Although they are free to do as they wish inside their hotels, no one is allowed onto the beaches or streets, and the only airport in Bali remains closed for the entire day. The only exceptions granted are for emergency vehicles responding to life-threatening conditions and women about to give birth.

On the day after Nyepi, known as Ngembak Geni (Relighting the Fire), social activity picks up again quickly, as families and friends gather to ask forgiveness from one another and to perform certain religious rituals together. Fires and electricity are allowed again, and cooking of food resumes. (WIKIPEDIA)
