The government plans to hold talks with natural gas buyers and producers to review the terms of their sales contracts as it tries to boost gas revenue, an Energy Ministry official said.

“Any gas sales that are below the economical price will be reviewed,” Evita Legowo, director general of oil and gas at the Energy Ministry, said on Thursday.

Evita, who did not provide further details on which contracts the government planned to review, said the prices stated in sales contracts should reflect the market price.

The duration and price contained in sales contracts are typically determined up front by gas producers. Evita said it was not yet clear whether the amount of gas sold or the duration of contracts would change as part of the renegotiations, “but the price of the gas will be affected.”

One contract the government has been determined to renegotiate is over the Tangguh natural gas plant in Papua. The China National Offshore Oil Corp. signed a sales contract in 2002, allowing it to buy gas at $2.40 per million British thermal units for 25 years.

Tangguh, located in Bintuni Bay in West Papua, is one of Indonesia’s three natural gas plants, along with Arun in Aceh province and Bontang, East Kalimantan. Natural gas from Arun and Bontang is exported to Japan at a range of $13 to $18 per mbbtu.

Tangguh is 37 percent controlled by BP, with CNOOC holding a 17 percent stake and Mitsubishi Corp. holding 16.3 percent. It has multi-year contracts to supply 2.6 million tons of LNG per year to China, 1.15 million tons per year to South Korea and an agreement to supply as much as 3.7 million tons a year to California-based Sempra Energy, BP said on its Web site.

“We will definitely review gas sales prices that are below the economical price,” Evita said.

The trial is ongoing.

This year in Thailand-what next?

AseanAffairs   04 January 2011
By David Swartzentruber      

It is commonplace in journalism to write two types of articles at the transition point between the year that has passed and the New Year. As this writer qualifies as an “old hand” in observing Thailand with a track record dating back 14 years, it is time take a shot at what may unfold in Thailand in 2011.

The first issue that can’t be answered is the health of Thailand’s beloved King Bhumibol, who is now 83 years old. He is the world's longest reigning monarch, but elaborate birthday celebrations in December failed to mask concern over his health. More
