Indonesia aims to stop LPG and fuel imports by 2030
Indonesia will stop both LPG and fuel imports by 2030 and plans big changes to its energy infrastructure to meet that target. President Joko Widodo has tasked the National Energy Council, a board made up of seven ministries and other stakeholders that plans energy policy, to devise a strategy to allow for a halt on LPG and fuel imports. Once a former OPEC member, maturing fields and investment lags has turned Indonesia to a net importer of oil and gas. The president has for years announced steps to cut imports, in a bid to contain the country’s current account deficit.
