Singapore-based independent Risco Energy has teamed up with U.S. LNG equipment maker Chart Industries to support the growing Indonesian gas-to-power sector. Risco is an active gas infrastructure provider to PT Perta Gas Niaga, a unit of Indonesian state-owned energy firm Pertamina.

Risco said in a statement the new deal comes as a response to Pertamina’s plans to boost gas power across the island nation. Under the deal, which was signed in the second quarter of this year, Chart will provide LNG equipment including storage tanks, ISO containers, trailers, mobile equipment, and fueling stations.

The two have cooperated since 2018 to supply gas infrastructure for the state power company’s PLN requirements in locations including Kalimantan, Central and Eastern Indonesia.

Risco said Chart’s equipment would allow it to meet the growing demand and offer distribution packages to its customers.

The firm plans to buy hundreds of Chart’s logistic support tanks over the next two years. The purchase plans also include “large volumes” of ground storage tanks, it said.

Risco already operates LNG logistic facilities at Sambera in East Kalimantan and has previously conducted deliveries to Papua. Sambera has a small-scale storage and regasification plant that receives fuel by trucks from Pertamina’s Bontang LNG terminal.

Risco said it delivered over one million mmbtu of LNG in ISO tanks to PLN in the first year of operations at Sambera.
