The US Trade and Development Agency (USTDA) has awarded a grant to PT Nusatama Properta Panbil to promote continued economic growth and energy security in Indonesia. The fund will be utilized for a feasibility study to evaluate the development of a liquefied natural gas (LNG) receiving terminal, as well as storage and transshipment facilities on Asam Island.
The proposed terminal and related facilities will receive and process LNG for onward inter-island transportation, pipeline injection, or as a marine bunkering fuel, depending upon the final recommendations of the feasibility study.
The study is a project of USTDA’s US Gas Infrastructure Exports Initiative and the Administration’s Asia Enhancing Development and Growth through Energy (Asia EDGE).
PT Nusatama Properta Panbil has three decades of experience in the energy business in the country. For USTDA, this partnership will help to create export opportunities for US suppliers of LNG technology.
