Shell Eyes Geothermal Investment

Friday, 07 November, 2008 | 14:41 WIB 

TEMPO Interactive, Jakarta:Shell International BV said they are interested in investing in Indonesia's newest energy sector. "The biggest potential is in geothermal and solar energy," said Shell International's chief of Political Analyst for Global Business Environment, Cho-Oon Khong yesterday. 

According to Cho-Oon, the details of the plans cannot yet be confirmed. However, he views Indonesia as playing an important role in facing the challenges of energy sources in the future. 

These challenges include the wide gap between the demand and supply in oil fuel and issues on global warming. He said supplies in oil and gas will become more limited 20 years from now. 

This, he said, has led to an increase in oil prices. On the other hand, the increasing global demands in energy will create alternative supplies and the use of more efficient energy. "Shell will adapt to that, allowing us a bigger opportunity of investing in Indonesia, both from the upstream and the downstream sectors," he said. 

Energy and Mineral Resources minister Purnomo Yusgiantoro said Indonesia's potential in geothermal reserves are equal to 219 million barrels of oil or 27.000 megawatt. However, the capacity installed produces only 1.052 megawatt. 

According to Purnomo, the main impediment in developing this source of energy is the large investment needed and high electricity rates produced. The cost of producing electricity from this source is higher than using the conventional coal. 

The government is currently studying three areas to implement an experimental CO2 Captured and Storage (CSS) project. This technology regulates the emission of carbon dioxide in fossil fuels and produces environmentally-friendly oil and natural gas.
