Government Spearheads Capacity Growth
Indonesia is reorienting energy production from serving primarily export markets to meeting its growing domestic
consumption. Indonesia’s energy industry has faced challenges in recent years from regulatory uncertainty and inadequate
Increased Consumption Curbs Exports
Natural gas production has increased by more than 11% between 2000 and 2013. While Indonesia continues to be a major
exporter of natural gas, domestic consumption growth has increased at a faster pace than production, leaving less natural
gas for exports.
Asia-Pacific Maintenance Builds Up
Maintenance is critical in this region as it faces the prospect of aging assets. Predicted rising demands also dictate that
increases in capacity will be required. This report by S&P Global Platts sheds light on current and scheduled activity in the
Enabling People to Produce Oil and Gas Safely
Knowledge that is critical to safe operations needs capturing for sharing. Formal knowledge risk management is key to
maintaining safety and emerging or skills gaps can be countered by reducing knowledge risk. A new software app helps to
lessen the risk of knowledge loss.
The Downstream Grapevine
Infrared Flare Monitoring Solutions
Infrared detection systems have been used in the flare pilot monitoring applications for more than 25 years. The early flare monitoring infrared pyrometers were “off the shelf” industrial temperature measurement pyrometers with limited optical resolution options and minimal environmental protection.
Achieving Higher Asset Integrity and Regulatory Compliance for LNG Terminals
Asset integrity and regulatory compliance, due to the nuances of dealing with LNG, are of utmost importance. This paper outlines a checklist to achieve these.
