BP to join Indonesia's geothermal energy projects

British Petroleum will take part in the development of geothermal energy projects in Indonesia.

 

"BP in talks just now agreed to participate in the development of geothermal energy in Indonesia thus to increase our power capacity," said Indonesian President Susilo Bambang Yudhoyono.

President Yudhoyono said the agreement was the result of his talks with BP CEO Bob Dudley at Gedung Agung.

subsidy had also made the price of geothermal energy not competitive yet.
