Indonesia bans coal exports in January

Public Policy

Indonesia has banned coal exports in January due to concerns that low supplies at domestic power plants could lead to widespread blackouts, a senior official at the energy ministry said on Saturday (Jan 1).

The country is the world’s biggest exporter of thermal coal, exporting around 400 million tonnes in 2020. Its biggest customers are China, India, Japan and South Korea.

Indonesia has a so-called Domestic Market Obligation (DMO) policy whereby coal miners must supply 25 per cent of annual production to state utility Perusahaan Listrik Negara (PLN) at a maximum price of US$70 per tonne, well below current market prices.

“Why is everyone banned from exporting? It’s beyond us and it’s temporary. If the ban isn’t enforced, almost 20 power plants with the power of 10,850 megawatts will be out,” Ridwan Jamaludin, director-general of minerals and coal at the energy ministry, said in a statement.

“If strategic actions aren’t taken, there could be a widespread blackout.”

Ridwan said coal supplies to power plants each month were below the DMO, so by the end of the year “there was a coal stockpile deficit”, adding that the ban will be evaluated after Jan 5.

The Indonesian Coal Mining Association (ICMA) called on the energy minister to revoke the export ban, saying in a statement the policy was “taken hastily without being discussed with business players”.

The widespread export ban may disrupt monthly coal production volumes of around 38 million to 40 million tonnes, said ICMA chairman Pandu Sjahrir. In recent years, Indonesia has exported about 30 million tonnes of coal in the month of January.

The association said it was also concerned about potential disputes with buyers if coal producers declared force majeure for not being able to deliver coal exports.

“Ships sailing to Indonesian waters will also experience conditions of uncertainty and this would affect Indonesia’s reputation and reliability as world’s coal supplier,” Sjahrir said.

HIGHER PRICES

Ahmad Zuhdi Dwi Kusuma, an industry analyst at Bank Mandiri, said the ban would push global coal prices higher in coming weeks as stockpiles decline, adding Indonesia’s customers may turn to Russia, Australia or Mongolia.

“In the midst of this global uncertainty, the market often seeks the safest partners,” he said.

China’s coal imports hit their highest level of 2021 in November, as the world’s biggest consumer of the dirty fuel scrambled to feed its power system as the winter heating season kicked in. But Beijing had also ordered miners to boost production.

Putera Satria Sambijantoro, an economist at brokerage Bahana Sekuritas, said that Indonesia’s economic growth may have resulted in a higher electricity and coal consumption forecast than earlier projections.

The PLN did not immediately respond to a request for comment.

In August 2021, Indonesia suspended coal exports from 34 coal mining companies it said failed to meet domestic market obligations between January and July last year.

Indonesia is among the top 10 global green house gas emitters and coal makes up around 60 per cent of its energy sources.

    Does not compute. Either they over-exported or there is something else going on. Clearly covid did not shut down their mining operations. Engineered energy shortages? War on China?

    The whole creation of GOD is amoral including the divine GOD. I cannot trust you on anything. Are you really giving me a new body, maybe you will add some modifications to control me incase I don’t behave the way you want.

    You cannot build anything lasting with a amoral universe. Everything you build will eventually die.

  7. EverythingIsAmoral on Sun, 2nd Jan 2022 7:48 pm 

    I remove my authorization and consent to receive a new body. You stop any modification to my body and leave it as it is. I simply cannot trust you in any form of any shape. I will die as an old man. At least I know what I bargaining for.

    I also don’t consent to be used as a source of energy. You stop using me as a source of energy.

  8. EverythingIsAmoral on Sun, 2nd Jan 2022 8:00 pm 

    I don’t consent to a spiritual ascension. This has not been explain properly to me.

    My interaction with the world of the GODS indicated to me that you cannot be trusted and are amoral.

    Another Florida COVID record broken.

    85,707 newly reported cases.

    When you have an idiot as governor, the results are a given.

    Everyone that walks on two legs will be killed by deadly facial skin cancer except me. Every animal on earth will by deadly cancer, does matter what type, liver, skin.

    Earth will be destroyed by global cooking. Cosmic GODS, and the world of GODS will be destroyed and the GODS killed because they are amoral. We need to start from fresh, including new GODS.

    Using my neighbors and employees at the grocery store to manipulate me is one step to far. You will be put to dead for that.

  12. YouWillAllBeKilled on Mon, 3rd Jan 2022 8:04 pm 

    I have to be precise, since I am sending my energy to the zero field point to be transformed into real world actions, like giving cancer.

    Everyone that walks on two legs will be killed by deadly facial skin cancer except me. Every animal on earth will be killed be deadly cancer, does matter what type, liver, skin.

    Earth will be destroyed by global cooling. Cosmic GODS, and the world of GODS will be destroyed and the GODS killed because they are amoral. We need to start from fresh, including new GODS.

    Using my neighbors and employees at the grocery store to manipulate me is one step to far. You will be put to dead for that.

    This Orange County Republican who campaigned against vaccine mandates just died of COVID-19

    You see the small legs, 1:08, it is the petites people hiding under an holographic coat. When the upper torso, chest, bicep, have perfect forms, it is usually holographic coat, Some petit people can be 3 feet high in their adult form. Petite could have the same knowledge and be the ancient helper working with GOD buildup realm.

    “We know what you did. You engineered and patented a gain-of-function virus at the same time you conspired with pharma companies to devise and patent pseudo-vaccines, and then you loosed both of them on the public.”

    Now even the DailyMail MSM begins to question the relationship between the large number of vaccinated topsporters and their collapse on the pitch:

    “Christian Eriksen and Sergio Aguero’s on-field heart problems ‘have fuelled suspicion of Covid vaccines in Premier League players – with encouragement from Matt Le Tissier and Trevor Sinclair’, say club medics, with around 100 stars still refusing the jab”

    I went to a drug store. On the entrance door there was a notice saying, we are out of COVID test kid.

    I like to play the commander spy during grocery shopping. Today while a guy in a aisle was walking in front of me, I said in a normal voice, “It is time to evacuate the humans and destroy earth” , he stopped and looked at me and asked “were you talking to me”, I said “no I am talking to myself”, we stared at each other for 2 sec and then he walked away. Have to have fun on this shit earth.

    Now we are getting somewhere. They are animal, they should look like ones. Human body should be only for real human. This aliens are basics animals that are amoral.

    I think earth is invaded by 5 or 6 different aliens species. I have identified so far two species, I think, you never know for sur because of their holographic coat.

    One specie is the petites ones, short between 3 to 4 foots high.

    We have the tall skinny ones. Between 6 and 7 foots high, skinny and usually without muscularly mass.

    This is why I am saying that all the others creations in the universe have died, and only earth can now support life. It won’t last long if everyone in the universe is moving into earth.

    I had a female shape shifter trying to seduce at the grocery store. The can change their whole appearance including hair color and clothing. Yes, they can generate glasses and clothing

  20. YouAreAnAnimalYouShouldLookLikeOne on Tue, 4th Jan 2022 8:14 pm 

    I am not sure that pure blood human still exist. There must have been a lot of race mixing between humans and aliens species. Very few pure blood human exist.

    Every one is fucking ugly, look weak physically without muscle mass, a lot of them lack eyes hands coordination and drives cars like idiots.

    It will get worse and worse as time goes by.

    The GODS failed all the way. Everything they did is for nothing. They will have to restart from scratch.

  21. FuckYoiuAllInTheAss on Tue, 4th Jan 2022 9:01 pm 

    Saviez-vous que les Italiens et les Grecs étaient originalement blancs. Ils sont brun maintenant brun parce qu’ils se sont reproduits avec des Aliens a peaux brunes. C’est ma théorie.

    Les vrais humains angélique sont Blancs Nordic.

  22. FuckYoiuAllInTheAss on Tue, 4th Jan 2022 9:19 pm 

    Tu peux considérer à tout fin pratique que les humains blancs originaux sont morts génétiquement. La reproduction sexuel mixte des humains blancs avec les aliens a peaux brunes a détruit le design original et produit un aliens hybride qui ne vaut pas de la marde. Les dieux vont devoir recommencer tout leur travail a partir de zéro. Je suppose que cela s’appelle le Karma

    Ca me fait rire tout ca.

    The body modifications are starting to show. A lot of my tan on my forearm are gone. My face look it is kind of glowing but a low intensity.

    No wonder why the guy at the grocery store stared at me when I said “It is time to evacuate the humans and destroyed earth”
