PT. Nusatama Properta Panbil invites submission of qualifications and proposal data (collectively referred to as the “Proposal”) from interested U.S. firms that are qualified on the basis of experience and capability to execute a feasibility study for the proposed development of a liquefied natural gas (“LNG”) bunkering and breakbulk terminal on Asam Island in the Malacca Strait (the “Project”) in Indonesia.
In 2015, Panbil received a request from the Government of Indonesia to support the development of Asam Island, located in Karimun District, Kepulauan Riau. The island is approximately 23 miles from the Port of Tanjung Pelepas, Malaysia, and about 22.5 miles from port facilities on Jurong Island, Singapore.
After evaluating multiple use options for the site, Panbil is now seeking to develop an LNG bunkering and breakbulk terminal on Asam Island. The subject feasibility study (“Study”) will support Panbil in developing the commercial and design elements of the proposed LNG terminal and breakbulk facilities.
