Industry Complains About Gas Prices PDF Print E-mail

Industry players in this country are worried. Because, PT Perusahaan Gas Negara Tbk (PGN / PGAS) wants to change the contract by increasing the price of industrial gas. In fact, business people expect gas prices to be cheaper after PGN and Pertagas unite in oil and gas holding.

 

This condition is a challenge for industries that make gas as a major fuel source, such as the textile and textile products (TPT) and ceramics industries.

 

For the upstream textile industry, the gas component contributes 20% -25% of the production costs. As for the ceramics industry, gas contributes 30% -35% to production costs or becomes main raw material.

 

The Secretary General of the Indonesian Filament Yarns and Fiber Producers Association (APSyFI) Redma Gita Wiraswasta said, after Pertagas merged with PGN, the possibility of gas prices rising.

 

"There has been no increase in the range, but the PGN has come to the company and requested a re-contract," said Redma.

 

Filament yarn producers such as PT Asia Pacific Fibers Tbk (POLY) expect gas prices to fall in accordance with Presidential Regulation No. 40/2016.

 

"Hope is that prices can be competitive after a merger," said Assistant President Director of Corporate Communications POLY, Prama Yudha Amdan.

 

The company hopes the government is more industry friendly. With the Pertagas-PGN merger impacting on competitive gas prices and prices, POLY believes that gas demand in the industry will grow.

 

"Of course there is a correlation, gas consumption can rise to spur the industry and ultimately the economy moves," said Yudha.

 

Chairperson of the Indonesian Association of Various Ceramics (Asaki), Elisa Sinaga, said the ceramics businessman had asked at least the price of gas in the areas of West Java and East Java could be the same. Because, until now the difference can be 13%, where the price of gas in West Java is around US $ 9.16 per mmbtu and in East Java it is worth US $ 7.98 per mmbtu.

 

Plus the weakening of the rupiah against the US dollar, according to him, entrepreneurs are increasingly depressed. "With these fluctuations, the price of gas with the US dollar will also pressure us. Even though the gas component to the production contribution is about 30%," said Elisa.

 

 

Industri mengeluhkan harga gas

 

 

Pelaku industri di Tanah Air sedang gundah gulana. Sebab, PT Perusahaan Gas Negara Tbk (PGN/ PGAS) ingin mengubah kontrak dengan menaikkan harga gas industri. Padahal, pebisnis berharap harga gas bisa lebih murah setelah PGN dan Pertagas bersatu dalam holding migas.

 

Kondisi ini menjadi tantangan bagi industri yang menjadikan gas sebagai sumber bahan bakar utama, seperti industri tekstil dan produk tekstil (TPT) serta keramik.

 

Bagi industri hulu tekstil, komponen gas menyumbang 20%-25% dari ongkos produksi. Sedangkan bagi industri keramik, gas berkontribusi sebesar 30%-35% terhadap biaya produksi atau menjadi bahan baku utama.

 

Sekretaris Jenderal Asosiasi Produsen Serat dan Benang Filamen Indonesia (APSyFI) Redma Gita Wiraswasta menyebutkan, setelah Pertagas melebur ke PGN, kemungkinan harga gas malah naik. "Belum ada kisaran kenaikannya, tapi pihak PGN sudah datang ke perusahaan dan meminta kontrak ulang," sebut Redma.

 

Produsen benang filamen seperti PT Asia Pacific Fibers Tbk (POLY) mengharapkan harga gas bisa turun sesuai dengan Perpres Nomor 40/2016.

 

"Harapannya agar harga bisa kompetitif setelah ada merger," ungkap Assistant President Director Corporate Communications POLY, Prama Yudha Amdan.

 

Perusahaan ini berharap pemerintah lebih ramah terhadap industri. Dengan merger Pertagas-PGN yang berimbas pada efisiensi dan harga gas yang kompetitif, POLY meyakini permintaan gas di kalangan industri akan bertumbuh.

"Tentu ada korelasinya, konsumsi gas dapat naik memacu industri dan pada akhirnya perekonomian bergerak," sebut Yudha.

 

Ketua Umum Asosiasi Aneka Keramik Indonesia (Asaki), Elisa Sinaga, mengatakan pebisnis keramik pernah meminta setidaknya harga gas di area Jawa Barat dan Jawa Timur bisa sama. Sebab, hingga saat ini perbedaannya bisa sebesar 13%, dimana harga gas di Jabar sekitar US$ 9,16 per mmbtu dan di Jatim senilai US$ 7,98 per mmbtu.

 

Ditambah pelemahan nilai tukar rupiah terhadap dollar AS, menurut dia, pengusaha semakin tertekan. "Dengan fluktuasi ini, harga gas dengan dollar AS ini juga bakal menekan kami. Padahal komponen gas terhadap kontribusi produksi kira-kira 30%," ungkap Elisa.
