The pipeline is part of the Trans Java gas pipeline integration project which was planned to be commissioned by 2021.[6] In addition to Cirebon-Semarang Gas Pipeline, the project also includes Cirebon-KHT Gas Pipeline and Tegalgede-Muara Tawar Gas Pipeline.[6]

In May 2019 PT Waskita Karya (Persero) Tbk signed an agreement with PT Rekayasa Industri to build the pipeline.[7] Construction of the pipeline began in February 2020, fourteen years after the firm Rekayasa Industri won the bid to build it.[5] In October 2020, PT Rekayasa Industri (Rekind), the Indonesian state-owned company engaged in construction, officially withdrew itself from the project.[8] The second bid winner BPH Migas PT Bakrie & Brothers (BNBR) took over the project in 2021[4]. In August 2021, BPH Migas urged BNBR to complete construction of the 84-kilometers long Semarang-Batang segment of the pipeline by 2022.[2]
