(2/28/2006)

The Government has announced a pilot project that will see at least a portion of Bali's electrical power requirements produced through the burning of Compressed Natural Gas (CNG) by the year 2009.

CNG is considered a cleaner alternative to diesel fuels and is made by compressing purified natural gas to be stored in high pressure containers.

The innovative program was announced by Indonesia's Minister for Energy and Natural Resources, Purnomo Yusgiantoro, on Thursday, August 18, 2005, in Jakara at a presentation by Samsung Corporation- the company leading a consortium pioneering the project.

Quoted in the Indonesian-language daily Kompas, Minister Yusgiantoro said, "this technology is very approriate to the alternative energy programs planned by the government. We will try to use this program of gas delivery to help meet Bali's energy needs, which are growing by 40 megawatts each year."

CNG is estimated to cost 70% less than conventional fossil fuels.

Bali's CNG supplies will be delivered from Kalimantan to Bali on board a specially constructed ship capable of carrying the pressurized cargo built by the Samsung-led consortium.

Already a major fuel source for automobile in Pakistan and India, CNG is now the sole source of power for Delhi’s public transport system.
