The Directorate General of Oil and Gas at the Ministry of Energy and Mineral Resources will propose a CCUS related to the topic of energy transition as one of the collaborative projects in the G20.

“The CCUS program in the G20 shows the seriousness of our country in protecting the environment. This is one of the consequences as a country that has ratified the Paris Agreement on Climate Change,” said Director General of Oil and Gas Tutuka Ariadji in his official statement, Wednesday (26/1/2022).

Tutuka said that in order for CCUS to become one of the cooperation projects in the G20, Indonesia must establish multilateral cooperation with other G20 members.

Meanwhile, the G20 consists of 19 countries plus the European Union (EU). These countries are South Africa, United States of America, Saudi Arabia, Argentina, Australia, Brazil, India, Indonesia, United Kingdom, Italy, Japan, Germany, Canada, Mexico, Republic of Korea (South Korea), Russia, France, China, Turkey , and the European Union.

“Indonesia has indeed established cooperation with Japan, but that is not enough. Cooperation with other countries is needed so that the scale is bigger,” he said.

Tutuka proposed Canada and the United States as countries that need to be partnered with because they already have experience related to CCUS.

“We still have enough time to establish multilateral cooperation so that CCUS can become one of the cooperation projects in the G20,” he added.
