Siem Reap – Indonesia has eyed export of liquefied natural gas (LNG) to Cambodia to meet the demand for power plants in the country, Vice President Jusuf Kalla said here on Wednesday.
“I have talked about our economy. The Minister of Energy and Mineral Resources (Ignasius Jonan) and a team of PGN (the state gas firm PT Perusahaan Gas Negara) will continue the discussion in Phnom Penh and on how we can sell gas (to Cambodia),” Kalla stated.
According to Kalla, the high electricity tariff in Cambodia should be seen as an opportunity for Indonesia to offer natural gas as an alternative to diesel oil for power generator.
