Background

In September 2017, the Indonesian Ministry of Energy and Mineral Resources, the Ministry of Power, Energy and Mineral Resources of Bangladesh signed a memorandum of understanding for Pertamina, an Indonesian oil and gas holding company, to build a Combined Cycle Gas Turbine (CCGT) independent power plant with a capacity of 1,400 MW.[2]

Bangladesh was expected to make a decision on Pertamina's proposal, which included Pertamina supplying the natural gas, in late 2019.[3] Concerns delaying the decision included "reportedly dwindling gas reserves in Indonesia and a major overhaul at Pertamina".[4]
