Indonesian LNG exports rose by 6,8 % in 2016 to 42,85 m m3, the highest level since 2011, but still well below the recent peak of 52,46 m m3 in 2010. This growth was partly supported by exports from the Donggi Senoro LNG plant exceeding the initial 2016 export target of 36 cargoes, with 40 cargoes reportedly exported during the year.

The majority of Indonesian exports of LNG were bound for Asia, with exports to Japan and South Korea accounting for the majority of Indonesian exports in 2016, totaling 13,23 m m3 and 10,34 m m3 respectively, representing an increase of 2,5 % and 19,7 %. Domestic LNG trade also rose in 2016, by 48 % to 7,21 m m3.

In 2017, the 2,0 mtpa capacity Sengkang LNG plant on the island of Sulawesi is expected to start-up. The Ship to Shore Access Guidelines for Gas Terminal and Vessel Operatorsliquefaction terminal has suffered a number of delays due to issues with financing and gas allocation.

Meanwhile, operator Energy World Corp. have stated that the Sengkang LNG plant could be expanded to 5 mtpa capacity, through the addition of further liquefaction modules.

Beyond this, the third train at the Tangguh LNG plant is also under construction and is expected to be completed by 2020.

Whilst the addition of more liquefaction capacity should be supportive to Indonesian LNG exports in the coming years, overseas shipments are likely to come under pressure from increased domestic gas consumption, with Indonesian gas demand estimated to have risen by 2,8 % in 2016.

As such, the majority of the focus on Indonesian LNG recently has been towards the potential development of regasification infrastructure, in particular FSRUs, as well as small-scale LNG operations to service demand across the nation’s islands.
