This Policy Brief recommends digital integration as an enabler of natural gas infrastructure acceleration in Indonesia


Center for Policy and Public Management (CPPM) SBM ITB was invited by the Ministry of Energy and Mineral Resources (MEMR) to present the latest policy brief regarding natural gas infrastructure digitalization on June 23. The policy brief aims to highlight and recommend improvements on a successful digitalization of natural gas infrastructure in gas sub holding. The research employs in-depth interviews with Pertamina Gas (Pertagas) and Perusahaan Gas Negara (PGN) management as well as the Board of Directors. Data are also collected by Focus Group Discussion from representatives of Operation, Commercial, Finance, and ICT between March 31 to April 18, 2021. Secondary data are obtained from journals, webinar, and other references using digital transformation framework approach, digital maturity assessment, and the 8 Steps for Leading Change from John Kotter for change management processes. The research has been completed by Dr. Agung Wicaksono and Arief Mujiyanto.



This Policy Brief recommends digital integration as an enabler of natural gas infrastructure acceleration in Indonesia. The integration was influenced by new natural gas price regulation, national energy mix target, and sub holding domination over gas infrastructure which is around 96% in Indonesia. PGN-Pertagas digital integration is a National Dispatching Center (NDC) milestone as a national dashboard that integrates operational monitoring to optimize the supply chain particularly at the downstream side. The infrastructure integration acceleration is hoped to push natural gas demand and pipeline utilization in Indonesia in order to accelerate national economic recovery.
