Event Overview

Answers to challenging questions on
Indonesia’s coal Industry


The government is continue working to ramp up coal utilization in domestic market, a move hailed by Indonesian miners in responding to the lingering downturn of global coal market, mainly in Indonesia’s traditional export market of China and India. It is expected the government’s ongoing power capacity-expansion plan to build 35 GW power generation project through 2019, under which about 20 GW of coal-fired power plant may double coal demand in domestic.

The electricity project brings new opportunities for coal mining, not only to supply coal but also to diversify business to build both coal-fired power plant and mine mouth power plant. Other opportunities for the coal industry are to process it for derivative products via coal gasification, coal liquefaction and coal upgrading. In addition, the expected booming development of coal-fired power plant projects in neighboring countries of Southeast Asia (ASEAN) countries give hopes for Indonesian coal miners to tap these new markets.

However, with such new hopes, a number of tough challenges remain in place as coal miners are forced to further cut production cost to adapt the falling price of coal which many predict would still continue this year. Thus, only coal mining companies having efficient practices in doing mining works would survive.

It is the Regional Technical Conference (RTC) – Kalimantan Mining 2016 main goal to give insight the new business opportunities for coal miners; sharing experience on cost-cutting operations as well as the exploring the latest technological developments in order not only to help Indonesia coal industry remain survive but being competitive with coal suppliers from Australia and South Africa.

The conference will answer challenging questions :

  1. What is the future of Indonesia’s coal industry?
  2. What are the business opportunities in power generation project both for mining companies and mining supporting firms?
  3. How the coal miners in Kalimantan to further tap domestic and global market? And how to be competitive with suppliers from Australia and South Africa in export markets?
  4. How technologies answer the cost efficiency initiative amid the falling price of coal?
  5. How to resolve the logistic challenges in the future?
