Malaysia Plans to Increase LPG Imports from Iran: Official
TEHRAN (Tasnim) – Wiratmaja Puja, Indonesia’s Director General of Oil and Gas at the Energy and Mineral Resources Ministry, said Jakarta plans to increase liquefied petroleum gas (LPG) imports from Iran.
“We wish to add the amount of imported LPG from Iran at a discounted price, if possible,” Wiratmaja said as cited by Tempo news website on Monday.
He added that the Indonesian government is seeking to double its import volume from 500,000 tons to 1 million tons of LPG for domestic needs.
Back in December, Indonesia’s Pertamina Spokeswoman Wianda Pusponegoro said the energy company is expected to sign an agreement to import Iranian liquefied petroleum gas (LPG) in 2017.
Pertamina plans to import up to 12 cargoes, each of which contains 44,000 tons of gas, in 2017, she added.
