PT Perusahaan Gas Negara (PGN) Tbk has further expanded its natural gas pipeline network. The state-owned gas company will soon supply the clean and the most efficient gas to the MD Place office building, located in the Central Business District (CBD) at Jalan Setiabudi Selatan, Jakarta.

At the MD Place, the gas will be distributed to restaurants and cafes inside, and food courts. "This month, tenants at the MD Place can use natural gas that is clean and efficient compared to other fuel provided by PGN," said Sabaruddin, Sales Area Head Jakarta, PGN, in a written statement, Thursday (20/4).

PGN-Jakarta presently supplies gas to more than 15,000 customers, from houses to businesses, such malls, hotels and restaurants. PGN also distributes to small and medium enterprises, and power plants. "PGN is committed to further expand its infrastructure and gas without importing," Sabaruddin said.

MD Place comprises the Main Tower and the Annex Tower. In the Main Tower, there are 2 floors of parking basements, 2 floors of restaurants (Akira Back Restaurant and Valentino Restaurant), 11 floors of offices. The Annex Tower has a food court area, a house rooftop restaurant floor and 5 floors of offices.

MD Place general manager Arief Nuryanto said he selected PGN as the company could offer a more economic price. The company also offers better safety as they don’t require a gas depot, which can bring huge security risk. "We trust their experience and professionalism. PGN is proven in providing premium services to customers," Arief said.

PGN has supplied to over 1,652 large industries and power plants, 1,929 commercial customers (hotels, restaurants and hospitals) and small and medium enterprises, and 204,000 houses.

Besides Jakarta, PGN’s major customers are North Sumatera, Riau Archipelago, Riau, South Sumatera, Lampung, West Java, Banten, Central Java, East Java, North Kalimantan and Sorong, Papua. The company’s pipeline network now extends 7,200 kilometers, which is equivalent to 80 percent of the total gas pipeline existing across Indonesia.
