The FSRU release ceremony was conducted by the President Director of PT Pertamina (Persero) Karen Agustiawan, acting as the President Commissioner of PT Nusantara Regas, which is the operator of Regas Satu FSRU. The officials from Energy and Mineral Resources Ministry, BP Migas, BPH Migas, Pertamina Board of Commissioners, Pertamina Board of Directors, PGN, and Nusantara Regas, as well as Total E&P Indonesie management were also present at the ceremony.

The President Director of PT Pertamina (Persero) Karen Agustiawan said the completion of Regas Satu FSRU was one of the important steps in operating the LNG receiving terminal, which is known as the West Java FSRU Project. The West Java FSRU facility is scheduled to start operating phase by phase by May 2012.

“The inauguration of FSRU voyage is one of the essential steps to the operation of the first FSRU in Indonesia. This facility will undergo cooling down and commissioning phase starting from the end of April and is expected to start its commercial operation in May 2012,” Karen said.

The operation of West Java FSRU will be an important milestone in fulfilling domestic demand for gas. With the maximum capacity of 3 million metric ton of LNG annually, the FSRU will supply gas to the Muara Karang PLTGU and Tanjung Priok PLTGU, amounting to 400 MMSCFD.

“With this FSRU, Nusantara Regas will be able to fulfill the gas supply commitment to PLN with the capacity of 1.5 million LNG annually,” she said.

The FSRU will be operated by Nusantara Regas, the subsidiary of Pertamina and PGN with ownership composition of 60% under Pertamina and 40% under PGN. The West Java FSRU will receive its LNG supply from Bontang to the total amount of 11.75 million ton in 11 years.

The West Java FSRU Project is aimed at supporting the government program to perform energy diversification in order to achieve energy sustainability in long run. With the FSRU, Nusantara Regas will also develop other business potentials to increase and optimize the value of the FSRU.

Domestic demand for gas reached around 2,000 MMSCFD in 2008. It is expected to jump to 4,500 MMSCFD in 2020, mainly driven by the increase in power generation, industry, fertilizer, transportation, and household consumption.

JAKARTA: Badan Pengembangan Sumber Daya Manusia Perhubungan memperkirakan sumbangan devisa dari 78.000 pelaut Indonesia yang bekerja di kapal asing mencapai Rp16 triliun per tahun

March 27 in Uncategorized by jimc Comments Off

Sekretaris Badan Pengembangan Sumber Daya Manusia (BPSDM) Perhubungan Wahyu Satrio Utomo mengatakan sumbangan itu lebih besar dibandingkan dengan devisa dari tenaga kerja Indonesia (TKI) di luar negeri yang hanya Rp34 triliun per tahun.

Namun, jumlah pelaut Indonesia yang bekerja di kapal asing masih kecil ketimbang pelaut asal Filipina yang jumlahnya sekitar 400.000 orang atau mengisi sekitar sepertiga pelaut dunia.

“Kebutuhan pelaut dunia sangat besar sekali, sementara taruna yang dihasilkan oleh sekolah pelaut kita masih kurang mampu untuk memenuhi kebutuhan”, katanya seperti dikutip www.depub.go.id kemarin.

Perbandingan pelaut yang bekerja

Filipina 400.000 orang

Indonesia 78.000 orang

China invests Rp 1.4t in RI’s maritime sector

March 27 in Uncategorized by jimc Comments Off

China’s State Oceanic Administration (SOA) signed an agreement with Indonesia’s Maritime Affairs and Fisheries Ministry last week for a joint cooperation that would involve capital investments worth Rp 1.4 trillion (US$152.6 million) over five years to help develop the domestic maritime industry.

“Indonesia and China realize that the maritime and fisheries sector needs to be strengthened because the sector plays an important role in facing many global issues in the future such as the climate change, food security, and illegal fishing,” Maritime Affairs and Fisheries Ministry spokesman Indra Sakti told The Jakarta Post in Jakarta on Monday.

He said that the agreement covered the setting up of the Indonesia-China Center for the Ocean and Climate (ICCOC) in Indonesia, scholarships for Indonesians to study maritime and fisheries in China, and a submarine that will help Indonesia conduct research on oceanography.

“The ICCOC will be established in five locations, such as the Natuna Islands in Riau Islands Province, Perancak in Bali, and Morotai Islands in North Maluku,” he said.

He said that the ICCOC will help Indonesia monitor maritime and fisheries conditions in Indonesian waters closely as well as become a center for data and research.

In addition, for the scholarship, Indra said that the Chinese government would give opportunities to Indonesians to take master and doctoral programs in maritime and fisheries management in Chinese universities.

“Through this cooperation, Indonesia will have more people who can help develop the country’s maritime and fisheries sector in the future,” he added.

The deal was part of several agreements made during the state visit of President Susilo Bambang Yudhoyono that covered cooperation in areas including trade, tourism, and antidrug efforts.

Bilateral relations in the maritime and fisheries sector have existed since 1994 after the signing of the Indonesia — China Science and Technology Agreement. After that, several memorandum of understandings (MoU) were signed between Jakarta
