LNG supply and infrastructure developments are critical in ensuring the rapid and much needed LNG distribution and integration in Indonesia. The recently operational Lampung FSRU is another serious step taken by stakeholders to ensure LNG infrastructure will continue to be developed.
A niche, targeted and sustainable LNG shipping market – notably Small Scale Shipping – has opened up significantly with the availability of LNG Supply and LNG Infrastructures.
Small LNG ships will increasingly provide vital functions in terms of regional integration, transportation into remote areas and inter-island crossings.
LNG distribution infrastructure via Small Scale LNG vessels are fast becoming a must-have solution for players wanting to effectively deliver natural gas – notably LNG – between Indonesia’s islands.
In addition, land-based import terminals are already being seriously planned by state owned companies and private stakeholders – ensuring the growth of Indonesia’s LNG industry remains on progress, on track, on track.
This will inevitably increase the utilization and need for Small LNG vessels to be deployed in various regions across the archipelago.
Indonesian cabotage rules and compliance is an important aspect for ships and vessels wanting to operate in Indonesian waters. Since the cabotage rules were applied, the development of Indonesian commercial fleet increased significantly – jumping from 6,041 ships in 2006 to 13,224 by the end of 2013. This will inevitably open up significant opportunities for players wanting to tap into the niche Small LNG Shipping and Distribution industry.
This inaugural forum offers a one-shot platform for all serious stakeholders to highlight their positions in and distinctive solutions for Indonesia’s LNG industry while establishing relationships with key policy-makers and private sector players integral to LNG Supply, Shipping, Infrastructure development, and Distribution.
Developing LNG for shipping, LNG as fuel and utilizing Small LNG Shipping as a distribution tool will change the face of Indonesia’s shipping industry.
