Government inconsistencies in the application of gas prices. Based on the economic policy package volume III, the government sets the price of industrial gas be $ 6 per Million Metric British Thermal Units (MMBTU) from the previous USD9,3 per MMBTU.


Chairman of the Board Development Indonesian Textile Association (API) Benny Soetrisno mentions, industrial gas prices specified in Volume III of economic policy package is still not ideal. Because the price of liquefied natural gas (LNG) international is now at the level USD4,5 per MMBTU.


"So ideally it is $ 5 per MMBTU. If $ 6 per MMBTU was not ideal for the industry," said Benny.


Meanwhile, today the Ministry of Industry (Ministry of Industry) once again visited by the fertilizer industry to the issue of gas prices. Director Director of Pupuk Indonesia Aas Asikin Idat said fertilizer industry players complained about the high price of gas for fertilizer industry approximately $ 6-$ 7 per MMBTU.


According to Aas, the price of gas makes it difficult fertilizer industry competitiveness.

"The point talking about the price, especially for fertilizer plants. If we want to compete with the world gas price of $ 1-US $ 3 per MMBTU international factories in the world," he said. Before the fertilizer industry, textile industry joined in Indonesia Textiles Association (API) also complained about the high price of gas to the Ministry of Industry. Chairman of API Ade Sudrajat said, because gas prices have become the backbone of the industrialization process in which this energy can be a process of industrialization globally competitive. Gas price in Indonesia is expected to be priced large-scale economy.


"We expect the gas price is not too high the difference between that sold to Singapore, Korea, and Vietnam, than in the country. At least $ 7 per MMBTU, not too expensive," said Ade.



Harga Gas Dunia Turun, Harusnya di Indonesia USD5/MMBTU



Pemerintah inkonsisten dalam penerapan harga gas. Berdasarkan paket kebijakan ekonomi jilid III, pemerintah menetapkan harga gas industri menjadi USD6 per Million Metric British Thermal Unit (MMBTU) dari sebelumnya USD9,3 per MMBTU.

Ketua Dewan Pembinan Asosiasi Pertekstilan Indonesia (API) Benny Soetrisno menyebut, harga gas industri yang ditetapkan dalam paket kebijakan ekonomi jilid III masih belum ideal. Pasalnya, harga liquefied natural gas (LNG) internasional saat ini sudah berada pada level USD4,5 per MMBTU.

"Jadi idealnya itu USD5 per MMBTU. Kalau USD6 per MMBTU itu belum ideal bagi industri,"terang


Sementara itu, hari ini Kementerian Perindustrian (Kemenperin) kembali disambangi para pelaku industri pupuk terkait persoalan harga gas. Direktur Direktur Utama Pupuk Indonesia Aas Asikin Idat menuturkan, pelaku industri pupuk mengeluhkan tingginya harga gas industri pupuk sekira USD6-USD7 per MMBTU.

Menurut Aas, harga gas tersebut membuat industri pupuk sulit memiliki daya saing.

"Intinya bicara soal harga khususnya untuk pabrik pupuk. Kalau kita mau bersaing dengan dunia harga gas USD1-USD3 per MMBTU pabrik internasional di dunia," ujarnya.

Sebelum industri pupuk, industri tekstil yang tergabung dalam Asoisasi Perteksilan Indonesia (API) juga mengeluhkan tingginya harga gas ke Kemenperin. Ketua Umum API Ade Sudrajat mengatakan, karena harga gas ini menjadi tulang punggung dari proses industrialisasi di mana energi ini bisa menjadi proses industrialisasi yang berdaya saing secara global. Diharapkan harga gas di Indonesia menjadi harga berskala keekonomisan.

"Kita harapkan harga gas paling tidak terlalu tinggi perbedaannya antara yang dijual ke Singapura, Korea, dan Vietnam, dibandingkan di dalam negeri. Paling tidak USD7 per MMBTU, jangan terlalu mahal," ujar Ade.
