Tempo Interactive, Jakarta: The government asked industry to build factories in a gas-surplus area in order to ease energy fuel distribution to the industries.

“Now it's time for industries to follow the energy, not vice versa,” said Minister of Energy and Mineral Resources, Purnomo Yusgiantoro, during the presentation, Jakarta, Friday (4/5).

Purnomo said about the industries that can be developed in gas-surplus areas, such as Sulawesi and East Java, “Those which are not bound by gas contracts .”

Several areas which were listed as undergoing gas deficits until 2009 include North Sumatra and East Kalimantan.
