The Cirebon-Semarang Gas Pipeline is a proposed natural gas pipeline.
The pipeline would run from Cirebon, West Java to Semarang, Central Java.

Construction of the pipeline was scheduled to begin in July 2018. The pipeline is part of the Trans Java gas pipeline integration project which is planned to be commissioned by 2021. In May 2019 PT Waskita Karya (Persero) Tbk signed an agreement with PT Rekayasa Industri to build the pipeline. Construction of the pipeline began in February 2020, fourteen years after the firm Rekayasa Industri won the bid to build it. In October 2020, PT Rekayasa Industri (Rekind), the Indonesian state-owned company engaged in construction, officially withdrew itself from the project.
