Gas transport trial using liquefied LNG-fuelled trucks

Jakarta – PT Pertamina (Persero) through Subholding Gas PT Perusahaan Gas Negara (PGN) Tbk and its subsidiary PT Gagas Energi Indonesia have started using liquid natural gas (LNG) to fuel trucks carrying gas fuel. The first project to use liquid LNG to fuel CNG trucks was tested for the first time in the third week of January 2023, from Jakarta.

All of the LNG trucks then arrived at their destination in Surabaya safely, without any problems and performed as expected. “This will certainly be one of the important milestones of the Subholding Gas Group, namely operating the first LNG-fueled truck in Indonesia,” said the Director of Gagas, Muhammad Hardiansyah in a written statement.

During the trial, there were three trucks carrying 40 feet LNG semi-trailers, an LNG Mobile Refueling Unit (MRU) and a 20 feet CNG Gas Transport Module (GTM) traveling from Jakarta to Surabaya and back.

This trial was carried out for five days, using a truck with a capacity of 1,000 liters of LNG fuel cylinders via two routes, namely the Jakarta-Surabaya route via Semarang over toll road and non-toll routes. (Hartatik)
