Pertamina International Shipping (PIS) – a subsidiary of Indonesian state-owned energy corporation Pertamina – has formed a partnership with PT Pelindo to develop the Jakarta Integrated Green Terminal (JIGT) in Kalibaru, North Jakarta.
The port would supplement the integrated port of Plumpang and would store fuels such as liquified petroleum gas (LPG), gasoline and biodiesel, along with liquified natural gas (LNG), crude palm oil (CPO), used cooking oil (UCO) and petrochemical products, Pertamina said on 2 September.
“JIGT is also designed to anticipate increasing energy demands following national economic growth targets,” Pertamina president director Nicke Widyawati said.
JIGT would be built and managed by PIS, PIS president director Yoki Firnandi said.
Located in an area developed by PT Pelabuhan Indonesia (Pelindo), JIGT would have deep sea facilities and was expected to have a storage capacity of up to 6.3M barrels over an area of 64ha, Pertamina said.
JIGT was strategically positioned to serve as the gateway to the energy trading ecosystem through the Singapore-Indonesia corridor, which accounted for 30%-35% of global trade routes for oil and LNG, the company said.
