Energy Ministry picks DMO option to lower industrial gas prices


The Energy and Mineral Resources Ministry has chosen to pursue a combination of a domestic market obligation (DMO) and fiscal incentives to reduce industrial gas prices in the hope of fulfilling a four-year-old promise from President Joko “Jokowi” Widodo. The ministry will, among other requirements, expect oil and gas companies to prioritize selling their liquefied natural gas (LNG) to state-owned gas distributor PGN as part of efforts to bring the gas price down to US$6 per million British thermal units (mmbtu) as promised by the government, from between $8 and $9 per mmbtu at present.
