The global initiative for decarbonisation keeps growing at a different rate for each country. The global decarbonisation rate, which presents the carbon intensity reduction or energy-related CO2 emissions per dollar GDP, reached 2.5% in 2020. Indonesia recorded contributing as the second-highest rate of emissions reduction in the global decarbonisation rate during 2019-2020 with a total of 10.6% less carbon intensity. Solid infrastructure asset management shall significantly improve to support the further decarbonisation movement. As one of the cleanest carbon energy, LNG could be the fastest solution to keeping the initiative. Unfortunately, it has a drawback: methane produces higher Green House gases (GHG) than CO2. Furthermore, LNG acts as a transition fuel while the global industry prepares for renewable energy resources. The authors propose Adaptive Port Planning (APP) and Engineering Asset Management (EAM) framework for managing the existing LNG infrastructure terminal assets in this study. The EAM combines a multidisciplinary approach to provide a framework for effectively managing all engineered physical assets within the organisation. In contrast, the APP will give the idea to count the uncertainty in infrastructure demand, allowing flexibility in planning. The author overviews the conversion or transition pathway for existing terminal gas infrastructure to support future renewable energy resources such as hydrogen and ammonia. The Adaptive EAM will guide the sustainable business mindset and provide cost-effective decarbonising solutions.
