Kalimantan-Java Gas Piping Probably Canceled
Wednesday, 13 December, 2006 | 16:20 WIB

Tempo Interactive, Jakarta: There is a large possibility that the government will cancel the plan of piping for gas delivery from Kalimantan to Java.

Vice President Jusuf Kalla said since the gas potential in Cepu and other locations on Java was known, Indonesia's gas balance had changed.

Kalla said it was possible that the supply from gas fields in Java was sufficient to meet industrial needs in Java, so a large volume of gas transfer from Kalimantan was no longer necessary.

“If Cepu can (meet the demand), why then transfer from so far away?” said Kalla in his speech when officiating the Bontang General Hospital, today (13/12).

According to Kalla, the most recent development indicates that gas production in Kalimantan is actually declining, so sending it to Java can ruin the local industry.

However, he said, any cancellation depended on the decision made by President Susilo Bambang Yudhoyono.

Andi Sofyan Hasyam, Mayor of Bontang, stated his disagreement with the plan of gas piping to Java.

According to him, before there being any pipes, many refineries did not function and he was concerned that gas piping would make more refineries not functioning, ending in mass unemployment.
