Indonesia is projected to import gas in 2019 for the first time in the country’s history, according to senior official of the ministry of energy and mineral resources.

Indonesia’s import needs in 2019 will amount to 1,777 mmscfd based on the country’s gas balance through 2030, Director of Program Oversight Agus Cahyono Adi said on the sidelines of the Gas Indonesia Summit and Exhibition 2016 at Shangri La hotel in Jakarta on Wednesday.

“It is predicted that Indonesia will import LNG starting in 2019, albeit in small volume. I don’t remember the exact volume, but it is around the figures,” he said.

Agus said the figures are temporary estimation by the government at present. The figures will change in case of gas discoveries.
