Indonesia reviewing rules mandating coal sales to local buyers

3 Dec 2019

The government of Indonesia intends to change the regulation that forces coal producers to allocate 25% of their output to the domestic market as part of the Domestic Market Obligation.

The country promotes the use of coal in the household sector as a substitute for imported LPG.
