Jakarta (ANTARA) - Non-tax state revenue (PNPB) realization from the energy and mineral resources sector reached Rp189.2 trillion in 2021, Energy and Mineral Resources (ESDM) Minister Arifin Tasrif informed here on Wednesday.

"The realization recorded 156 percent of the initial target of Rp121.2 trillion," he remarked at a press conference on the ESDM Ministry’s achievements in 2021 and programs in 2022.

Compared to PNPB realization in 2020, which reached Rp109 trillion, the revenue in 2021 showed an increase of around 73.6 percent, the minister noted.

The ministry has continued to push PNBP up through a number of attempts, including oil and gas lifting as well as supervision of mineral, coal, and geothermal production, he said.

In 2021, the oil and gas sub-sector had the largest PNBP contribution of Rp103.2 billion, followed by the mineral and coal sub-sector (Rp75.5 billion), he informed.

Meanwhile, other sub-sectors collected Rp8.6 billion, and the new and renewable energy sub-sector's PNBP contribution stood at Rp1.9 billion, he added.

Furthermore, in 2022, the ministry is targeting PNBP realization of Rp132.2 billion -- Rp85.9 billion from the oil and gas sub-sector, Rp28 billion from the mineral and coal sub-sector, Rp2.4 billion from the new and renewable energy, as well as Rp15.9 billion from other sub-sectors, Tasrif said.

The fund will also be used to provide 30 thousand packages of converter kits of liquified petroleum gas (LPG)-based machines for fishermen and another 30 thousand for farmers, he said.

In addition, it will be utilized for repairing four volcanic observation posts, modernizing the geological disaster mitigation system in five locations, and establishing 79 units of rooftop solar power plants with a capacity of 2.3 megawatts-peak (MWp), he added.

Furthermore, the ministry will also use the budget for installing 22 thousand solar street lamps, constructing three Micro Hydro Power Plant (PLTMH) units, providing 11,347 Electrical Power Storage and Distribution Tools (APDAL), and revitalizing 11 units of renewable energy power plants, he said.
