    Coal is here to stay in IndonesiaDESPITE fluctuating prices, increasing environmental concerns,

    promising new gas reserves, a strengthening push for renewable

    energy and signs of recovery in nuclear power generation, coal is here

    to stay as there is no effective alternative to the large amounts of

    power generated from coal, nor is there an effective alternative in

    steel-making. This is good news for Indonesia with its large, and grow-

    ing, coal industry being a major contributor to the economy.

    There have been a few negatives lately with variable prices caused

    by global economic fluctuations particularly affecting Indonesias major

    coal export sources in Asia, and changing government policies which have created

    uncertainty for coal miners operating in the country and for foreign investors associated

    with the industry. On the positive side has been wet weather in Australia which has hit

    coal producing regions, an uncertain political climate in Mongolia and continuing pres-

    sures on the industry in North America and Europe.

    It remains crucial for the future of the coal industry in Indonesia that the government

    plays its cards right in the future, while also balancing domestic demand, environmental,

    community and infrastructure issues. With so many conflicting interests this is not an easy

    task and there will be mistakes along the way but it appears the government is making

    some progress in regards to the industrys future and will continue to do so.

    This progress is not helped by the Fraser Institutes recently published survey which

    rated Indonesia 96th and last on its index of attractive mining jurisdictions. Although

    Indonesia rates as one of the worlds top 10 most prospective places, the number of

    respondents who said they would not invest there because of regulatory difficulties and/or

    corruption is alarming. This ranking is hard to fathom and difficult to justify as the govern-

    ment is making some positive moves, it is the worlds biggest coal exporter, the industry

    is growing and there are quite a few foreign companies involved, all of which indicate that

    there are much worse jurisdictions for coal investment.

    Batubara tetap membara di IndonesiaWALAUPUN sedang menghadapi tantangan harga yang bergejolak, keprihatinan akan

    lingkungan, ancer-ancer cadangan gas baru, dorongan meluap-luap untuk menggu-

    nakan sumber energi yang dapat diperbaharui dan tanda-tanda pemugaran tenaga nuk-

    lir, batubara akan terus hadir karena tidak ada pilihan lain untuk tenaga raksasa yang

    diprodusirnya, dan juga tidak ada pilihan lain dalam pembuatan besi. Ini adalah berita

    baik bagi Indonesia yang industri batubaranya adalah masokkan utama ekonomi negara.

    Memang ada beberapa hal negatif belakangan ini seperti perubahan harga disebabkan

    oleh perubahan ekonomi yang berdampak terhadap ekspor batubara di Asia, dan

    perubahan kebijaksanaan pemerintah yang mencetuskan ketidakstabilan bagi operator-

    operator pertambangan batubara di Indonesia dan bagi para penanam modal asing yang

    bersangkutan dengan industri tersebut. Dipihak positifnya ialah cuaca hujan di Australia

    yang melanda daerah-daerah pertambangan batubara, situasi politik di Mongolia dan

    tekanan-tekanan pada industri ini di Amerika Utara dan Eropah.

    Tentunya penting sekali bagi masa depan industri batubara di Indonesia kalau pemer-

    intah bertindak adil dengan mempertimbangkan keperluan domestik, lingkungan, komu-

    nitas dan hal-hal infrastruktur. Dengan adanya bermacam kepentingan yang berbeda,

    sudah pasti tugas ini bukannya mudah dan tentunya akan terjadi kesalahan-kesalahan

    dalam pelaksanaannya namun nampaknya pemerintah terus membuat kemajuan dalam

    hal masa depan industri inidan akan terus berbuat demikian.

    Sayangnya hal ini diwarnai oleh penerbitan sebuah hasil survei dari Fraser Institute

    yang meletakkan Indonesia pada nomor 96 dan terakhir pada indeks tempat-tempat per-

    tambangan yang menarik. Walaupun Indonesia menduduki tempat sepuluh utama seba-

    gai negara yang prospeknya tinggi, jumlah responden-responden survei tersebut yang

    menyatakan bahwa mereka tidak ingin menginvestasi disini adalah sangat mengejutkan.

    Ranking demikian sulit untuk dimengerti karena pemerintah terus bergerak secara

    positif, ia adalah pengekspor batubara terbesar di dunia, industri ini terus berkembang

    dan ada perusahaan-perusahaan asing yang terlibat didalamnya, yang semuanya ini

    menandakan bahwa ada tempat-tempat lain yang jauh lebih buruk untuk investasi

    batubara.
