Jakarta plans 14 new coal terminals

Jakarta: Indonesia will build 14 dedicated coal terminals on the islands of Kalimantan and Sumatra, according to the Minerals and Coal Director of Indonesia’s Ministry of Energy, R. Sukhyar.

Each island will get seven new terminals, which will be funded by a mixture of state and private cash.

The government says the move is part of plans to try and crack down on the vast amount of illegal smuggling of coal that takes place across the archipelago each year.  [03/06/14]
