The 7th Coal Buyers and Producers Meeting 2019

Held in conjunction with:

2nd Mining Infrastructure, Logistic & Technology Expo


The Ministry of Energy and Mineral Resources reported a significant increase of the country's coal reserve, reaching 37 billion tons as of September 2018, up by 48 percent from 25 billion tons in previous year. The country's coal resources increased to 166 billion tons from 125 billion tons last year.

The new coal reserves and resources estimate was based on data collected from miners holding the coal mining contracts of work (PKP2B), and from 54 percent of IUP (mining business license) miners operating in 19 provinces.

Assuming annual production rate of 485 million tons (the original coal output target this year), the country's coal reserves can last for 76 years.

Realized coal production in 2018 was 528 million tons, far above the indicative target of 485 million tons. In 2019, the government sets coal production target at 490 million tons, of which 128 million tons will be allocated for the domestic market particularly for coal-fired power plants (95.7 million tons).

The government has set coal domestic market obligation (DMO) volume for this year at 128 million tons, higher than last year's realized DMO volume of 115.09 million tons. Of the 128 million tons coal DMO target this year, around 96 million tons will be allocated for power plants, 5.4 million tons for metallurgy industry, 1.49 million tons for fertilizer industry, 16.15 million tons for cement industry, 3 million tons for the textile industry, 6.2 million tons for paper industry, and 14,500 tons for the briquette industry.

The state-owned electricity firm PT PLN predicted its coal consumption this year will increase to around 96 million tons from realized consumption of 91.1 million tons last year. The increase was contributed by the plan to operate three new coal-fired power plants this year (September-October), namely PLTU Jawa 7 and 8, each with capacity of 1,000 MW, and PLTU Lontar with capacity of 350 MW.

Indonesia continues to be a significant player in the global coal mining industry, ranking the country as the world's largest exporter of thermal coal.

The 7th Annual Coal Buyers and Producers Meeting would give insight on the country's trend of coal production, supplier and consumption in coming years. We would also invite noted speakers from buyers and analysts to discuss the outlook of Indonesian coal in traditional markets of China, India and Japan as well as in the countries of ASEAN.

The conference would also highlight agenda of mining companies to boost new exploration in greenfield as well as the plan to enter coal downstream industry.
