Indonesian Textile Association (API) proposed that the industrial gas prices are set periodically by the government as is done on fuel oil (BBM) of Premium and Diesel. "The price of gas industry is currently not gained the attention of the government as well as fuel oil (BBM). The decline in world oil prices, will impact on lower gas prices, "said Chairman of API, Ade Sudrajat in Jakarta,


Ade rate, the industry is only able to buy gas at a price of US $ 6 per MMBtu. If there is one state-owned company into a gas distributor, the government set a price on a periodic basis as well as on fuel.


"The determination of gas prices made periodically as the determination of fuel prices, Premium, Diesel," he said.

Employers rate, when compared to other countries that also became a competitor of textile products, the price of gas in Indonesia too high

According to Ade, the industrial sector is not possible to import gas themselves due to limited infrastructure. Ade said, the high price of gas industry compared to other countries will also affect the increase in imports of yarn and fiber. "It's cheaper imports," he said.


Ade added, the cost of energy to contribute 28 percent of the cost structure of the upstream textile industry such as plant fibers and yarns.

"The energy of this gas in particular is most needed in the upstream textile. So backbone of the textile production process, but gas is expensive, but the cost structure to 28 percent," added Ade.

Meanwhile, the price of gas industry in Indonesia the range of 8 dollars 10 US dollars per Million Metric British Thermal Units (MMBTU).


"If the import of liquefied natural gas (LNG) itself from Kuwait, the price can be $ 3 per MMBtu, but we do not have a terminal," said Ade.



Industri Tekstil Memprotes Harga Gas



Asosiasi Pertekstilan Indonesia (API) mengusulkan agar harga gas industri ditetapkan secara berkala oleh pemerintah seperti yang dilakukan terhadap bahan bakar minyak (BBM) jenis Premium dan Solar. “Harga gas industri saat ini tidak mendapat perhatian dari pemerintah seperti halnya bahan bakar minyak (BBM). Penurunan harga minyak dunia, akan berimbas terhadap harga gas yang lebih rendah,” kata Ketua API, Ade Sudrajat di Jakarta,


Ade menilai, industri hanya mampu untuk membeli gas dengan harga US$6 per MMBtu. Jika ada satu perusahaan milik negara yang menjadi distributor gas, pemerintah dapat menetapkan harga secara periodik seperti halnya pada BBM.


“Penetapan harga gas dibuat periodik seperti penetapan harga BBM, Premium, Solar,” papar dia.

Para pengusaha menilai, jika dibandingkan negara lain yang juga menjadi pesaing produk TPT, harga gas di Indonesia terlalu tinggi

Menurut Ade, sektor industri tidak mungkin mengimpor gas sendiri karena keterbatasan infrastruktur. Ade menuturkan, tingginya harga gas industri dibandingkan negara lain akan berimbas pada kenaikan impor benang dan serat. "Lebih murah impor," jelasnya.


Ade menambahkan, biaya untuk energi berkontribusi 28 persen dari struktur biaya dari industri hulu TPT seperti pabrik serat dan benang.

"Energi khususnya gas ini yang paling dibutuhkan di tekstil hulu. Jadi tulang punggung dari proses produksi tekstil, tapi gas mahal, padahal cost structure sampai 28 persen," tambah Ade.

Sementara itu, harga gas industri di Indonesia berkisar pada angka 8 dollar AS-10 dollar AS per Million Metric British Thermal Unit (MMBTU).


“Kalau impor gas alam cair (LNG) sendiri dari Kuwait, harganya bisa US$3 per MMBtu, tetapi kami tidak punya terminal,” ujar Ade.
