This is Asia’s first gas-to-power project using FSRU, electric generation and gas related facilities which will be developed in an integrated manner.

In this project, PT Jawa Satu Power(JSP), a joint venture by Pertamina, Marubeni, and Sojitz, will construct, own, and operate the gas-fired power plant with a generating capacity of 1,760MW in Indonesia's West Java province while Jawa Satu Regas (JSR) will build, own, and operate a FSRU at sea to storage and regasify LNG to supply fuel to the power plant. The power plant and the FSRU will be maintained and operated. The Indonesian state-owned electricity utility PT PLN (Persero) will buy the electric power, produced by these facilities, for over 25 years.

The project expected to start operation in December 2021, the statement reads.

The FSRU will be placed 14km offshore in the Cilamaya Sea, east of Jakarta. The power plant will be newly constructed on shore near the FSRU site, and connected to the FSRU via a pipeline about 21km long.
