  • AG&PAG&P to build and operate the landmark LNG receiving terminal in South Sulawesi
 
PT. Energi Nusantara Merah Putih (ENMP) jointly with the industrial tenants of the Bantaeng Industrial Park (KIBA) has signed a Heads of Agreement (HoA) in Jakarta, outlining the development plan for a 600MW combined-cycle power plant (PLTGU). The partnership is fully supported by the Government of Bantaeng Regency, South Sulawesi. ENMP will work on the landmark project with Philippines-based, Atlantic, Gulf and Pacific Company (AG&P), that specializes in bringing LNG to markets that are currently off-grid with pragmatic, fast-track, standardized infrastructure.
 
In 2014, following the adoption of Government Regulation on banning the export of unprocessed mineral ore, the Bantaeng Regent, KIBA was formed covering an area of approximately 3,000ha at the initial stage. The KIBA provides special services to industrial tenants and has attracted a sizeable number of domestic and foreign investments, particularly in smelter development within the regency. Consequently, there is robust growth demand for energy that must be met with adequate installed capacity with a reserve margin to meet the fluctuating and non-linear load demands of nickel smelters operating in the KIBA.
 
ENMP jointly with its subsidiaries PT. Pasifik Agra Energi and PT. Power Merah Putih are responsible for providing prime energy to the KIBA. ENMP and its partners will also strive to develop Bantaeng as the center of LNG distribution for the central and eastern Indonesia region. The LNG terminal and power plant have an estimated total investment of USD980 million.
 
"The integration of this project will allow the KIBA supporting industries to accomplish the construction of the LNG receiving terminal immediately. This is a crucial part of the 600MW power plant itself, which will start operations by mid-2021," said the President Director of ENMP, Westana H. Wiraatmadja.
 
Bringing together its in-house expertise, AG&P will focus on the design, engineering, construction and operation of the LNG receiving terminals at KIBA. The modular components of the terminal will be constructed at its state-of-the-art manufacturing facilities in Batangas, South of Manila, Philippines.
 
“AG&P is thrilled to support this nationally important project in Bantaeng. We look forward in short order to LNG being available for the power plant and to industry and consumers throughout Southern Sulawesi and nearby regions. AG&P will work hard to achieve this goal,” said AG&P CFO & Commercial Head, Abhilesh Gupta.
 
AG&P brings to this important project its outstanding in-house engineering expertise in developing LNG receiving terminals and their supply chains, coupled with its unmatched global track record as a pioneer of high-value modular infrastructure. Currently, the project is in the engineering phase and is expected to reach financial close within one year, followed immediately by the construction of the LNG terminal and power plant.
 
By encouraging the development of industrial-based areas like the KIBA, Bantaeng will become one of the largest nickel processing centers in the world and will contribute significantly to the economy of Indonesia and South Sulawesi, and particularly the regency itself.
