End of Malaysia’s old PPA regime

November 15, 2019

I say, sustainable batteries is the new wave.

Dateline 2019-09-19, Borneo Post:

KUCHING: The possibility of a 10-year masterplan to reform the domestic power industry called MESI 2.0 will spell the end of the Power Purchase Agreement (PPA) era.

Although there is still lack of details, the Energy, Technology, Science, Climate Change and Environment Minister Yeo Bee Yin did reveal some insights during a briefing.

Affin Hwang Investment Bank Bhd (AffinHwang Capital) said there will be drastic changes to the PPA for new power plants, as the government intends to shorten the tenure of a PPA from the typical 21-years previously.

“The new PPAs will also no longer be entitled to lock-up guaranteed electricity payments, as moving forward, independent power producers (IPPs) are able to procure their own fuel source, and the single buyer would then in theory procure electricity from the cheapest generator.

Its president and chairman Martin Lim said that while it lauded the government’s efforts in bringing in investment of the LNG terminal and storage facility, the nature of the development needed more consideration due to its hazardous nature.

About half of new gas resources to be kept as feedstock, says Sarawak CM

November 12, 2019

Dateline 2019-09-11, FMT:

About 40℅ to 50% of new findings of gas resources in Sarawak must be retained as feedstock for gas- related industries in the state, Sarawak Chief Minister Abang Johari Openg said today.

He said this was to ensure Sarawak had sufficient gas feedstock to drive downstream activities of the natural gas industries in Sarawak, particularly the petrochemical industries.

Abang Johari announced this during the launch of Sarawak’s first methanol plant – Sarawak Petchem – at Tanjung Kidurong in Bintulu here, today.
