Jakarta-The uptake of coal DMO until November 2014 reach 55 million ton, or less than 40 million ton to reach the 95 million ton target this year.
Directorate General of Mineral and Coal of The Ministry of Mineral and Resources R. Sukhyar said that local coal market has not been formed yet, as the DMO target that has been set up is difficult to reach.
“The coal DMO is supported by power plant, therefore any constraints in this sector will ruin our target,” he said, Sunday (30/11).
He mentions the coal DMO will be raised upon next year to 125 million ton. He is optimistic the target will be reached upon next year.
He is reasoned, some of the government power project and the private that consume coal as their raw materials will operate
immediately next year. “Slowly but surely the domestic coal market will arise as the coal plants operate,” he said.
