AG&P (Atlantic, Gulf and Pacific Company) and Risco Energy Group Pte Ltd (Risco) have announced a joint venture. AG&P and Risco will design, manufacture, finance, charter/lease, operate and maintain compact and mid-scale LNG terminals and the supply chains that emanate from them.
The joint venture will cater to the distributed energy requirements of this dynamic and fast-growing island nation across storage, transport, regasification, power and full terminal solutions for Indonesia’s coasts, rivers and roads. AG&P and Risco together will serve the needs of the power, bunkering, mining, transportation and industrial sectors.
The joint venture partners AG&P’s capacity to develop the full LNG supply chain for compact and mid-scale applications with Risco’s deep expertise in the Indonesian energy and power markets. Risco’s downstream portfolio augments last-mile capabilities via its fleet of LNG-carrying trucks as well as with its credentials in converting heavy equipment to LNG as fuel.
In addition, AG&P will bring to the joint venture its ownership in Gas Entec, the highly-regarded, Korea-based engineering firm specialised in compact and mid-scale LNG design. AG&P, Gas Entec and Risco can design and build for charter or lease all aspects of the LNG supply chain in-house.
“Together, Risco and AG&P will deploy the necessary elements to transport LNG and see the delivery of gas to almost anywhere in Indonesia that serves our end-user clients. Such a supply chain goes a long way to making possible Indonesia’s mandate to bring electrification to everyone as quickly as possible. We are deeply honored to serve our beloved country,” said Hari Karyuliarto, Risco’s Chairman.
“AG&P and Risco together deliver all aspects of a comprehensive, virtual LNG pipeline capable of spanning the waters and roads of Indonesia. By making distributed energy available, affordable and sustainable, we will transform the lives of many people and continue Indonesia’s path to clean fuels,” said Ken Sauer, Risco’s Managing Director.
Yudistira A. Wibawa, AG&P’s Indonesia Country Manager, said: “The AG&P and Risco JV follows AG&P’s recent launch of its line of its ultra-shallow draft LNG carriers and shuttles which are optimised for Indonesia’s shallow water harbours, estuaries and rivers in, for example, Sumatra, Java and Kalimantan. With Risco, we now bring to Indonesia an even greater sense of and ability to make our terminal and supply chain solutions relevant for this tremendous market. We are privileged to work with Risco and to serve Indonesia and its exciting companies.”
Anupam Ahuja, Senior Vice President of AG&P, commented: “Indonesia is undergoing a profound transformation as a leading-edge economy in and a model for Southeast Asia. Risco, AG&P and Gas Entec working together to bring clean LNG and/or gas will ensure that Indonesia continues to enjoy a resilient, cost effective and green future with innovative technologies and products. We are humbled to play a part.”
