An announcement that Indonesia could import LNG from two Singaporean firms – Keppel Offshore & Marine and Pavilion Gas – has caused public uproar and prompted ministers to backtrack, according to The Jakarta Post.

A heads of agreement was signed last week for the two companies to supply LNG to power plants in the Riau Islands.

The LNG would likely come from Indonesia but be delivered by Singaporean small-scale tankers, according to Antara News.
