Technical assistance in Indonesia

GRTgaz has been providing bespoke technical support to Indonesian operator PGN since 2014.

Personalised technical support for Indonesian company PGN

Since 2013, GRTgaz has been delivering technical support and consulting services to PGN. In 2015, two GRTgaz experts carried out an auditing and consulting assignment in Jakarta on the topic of energy management (metering technologies, gas characteristics, gas supply-demand, etc.) during which they audited the Muara Bekasi metering station, which is fed by one of the two pipelines supplying gas to the northwest area of Java from Sumatra.

Early 2016, a team of engineers and technicians from PGN followed a twinning program GRTgaz in France during which they spent a week discovering the various activities involved in energy management.  This cooperation has given PGN an invaluable insight into developing best practices and its own tools for managing gas supply and demand more effectively.
