    Although Sumatra is believed to be the new ris-ing star for coal mining in Indonesia, current pro-duction suggests the star has a long way to goto be as bright as Kali m antan with recent devel-opments, global trends and lack of infrastucturecausing it to drop rather than rise. However, thepotential is certainly there and with governmentbacking, private company determination andlocal support, Sumatras star can become awhole lot brighter (see page 10). This edition ofCoal Age Indonesia focuses on the coal indus-try in Sumatra.

    Coal royalty proposal is ill-timedTHE Indonesian Governments proposal to increase coal mining royal-

    ties to 13.5% of net sales in 2014 from the current rate of 5-7% is aimed

    at equating the payments of every coal miner in the archipelago, the

    timing is questionable as is the likely impact on small mining compa-

    nies. Globally the industry is struggling from a number of factors, includ-

    ing low prices, rising supply and lack of capital, and Indonesias produc-

    ers are being hit hard. Many small companies have shut down while

    others are struggling to work under their contracts and even larger pro-

    ducers are struggling to justify mine and infrastructure expansion plans.

    Currently, smaller or newer miners holding IUPs are obliged to pay royalties of 5-7%.

    The IUPs were issued by local administrations after introduction of the 2009 Mining Law.

    These companies pay royalties based on the calorific value of coal they produce. The rate

    for coal with calorific content less than 5100 kCal/kg, for example, is set at 3% of net

    sales; a rate of 5% is set for coal with a CV between 5100 and 6100 kCal/kg; while 7%

    is demanded for coal with a CV more than 6100 kCal/kg.

    Large firms and some multinationals holding contracts of work (CoW) and smaller min-

    ers working with legal mining licences (PKP2B) are exempt from the proposal as they

    already pay royalties set at 13.5% for the coal, low-grade and high-grade, they produce.

    Energy and Mineral Resources Ministry spokesman Paul Lubis says the change has

    been proposed in a bid to increase state revenue from the sector. We feel the current

    revenue from royalty payments is not as big as the coal the country has produced.

    The Indonesian Coal Mining Association (ICMA) and other representative bodies will

    oppose the proposal, claiming it will hurt miners, particularly the smaller ones. We think

    it would be more reasonable if the government equated the royalty rate rule according to

    the quality of the coal both miners working under the PKP2B and IUP licences produce,

    ICMA chairman Bob Kamandanu says.

    Usul royalti batubara waktunya tidak tepatUSUL pemerintah Indonesia untuk menaikkan royalti tambang batubara menjadi 13,5 %

    dari hasil penjualan netto (bersih) dari tarif yang sekarang 5-7% bertujuan menyamakan

    pembayaran oleh setiap penambang batubara di nusantara, namun pemilihan waktunya

    harus dipertanyakan seperti juga dampak yang mungkin ditimbulkannya terhadap

    perusahaan-perusahaan tambang kecil. Secara global industri batubara sedang berge-

    lut untuk mengatasi sejumlah faktor, termasuk harga yang rendah, persediaan yang kian

    banyak, dan kurangnya modal, dan produsen batubara Indonesia benar-benar terpukul.

    Banyak perusahaan kecil tutup, sementara yang lainnya berusaha keras bekerja sesuai

    dengan kontrak mereka. Perusahaan batubara besar bahkan sedang berjuang untuk

    membenarkan rencana memperluas tambang batubara dan infrastrukturnya.

    Dewasa ini, para penambang kecil atau penambang baru yang memiliki izin IUP harus

    membayar royalti 5-7%. Izin IUP dikeluarkan oleh pemerintah daerah sesudah diberlak -

    ukannya Undang-undang Pertambangan tahun 2009. Perusahaan-perusahaan tersebut

    membayar royalti berdasarkan nilai calorific (panas batubara) yang dihasilkan. Misal n ya,

    tarif royalti untuk batubara dengan nilai calorific di bawah 5100 kCal/kg ditetapkan 3% dari

    hasil penjualan netto. Tarif royalti 5% ditetapkan untuk batubara dengan CV antara 5100

    dan 6100 kCal/kg, sedangkan tarif 7% untuk batubara dengan CV di atas 6100 kCal/kg.

    Perusahaan-perusahaan besar dan beberapa perusahaan multinasional yang

    memegang kontrak kerja (CoW) dan perusahaan-perusahaan tambang lebih kecil yang

    bekerja dengan izin pertambangan yang sah (PKP2B) dibebaskan dari royalti yang

    diusulkan karena mereka sudah membayar royalti 13,5% yang ditetapkan, baik untuk

    batubara mutu rendah maupun mutu tinggi yang dihasilkan.

    Jurubicara Kementerian Energi dan Sumber Alam, Paul Lubis, mengatakan, perubahan

    tarif itu diusulkan dalam upaya meningkatkan pemasukan negara dari sektor tersebut.

    Kami merasa bahwa pemasukan dari pembayaran royalti saat ini tidak sebesar

    batubara yang dihasilkan. Asosiasi Pertambangan Batubara Indonesia (ICMA) dan

    badan-badan perwakilan lainnya akan menentang usul itu dengan menyatakan, usul

    tersebut akan merugikan kaum penambang, khususnya perusahaan pertambangan

    kecil. Kami berpendapat, mungkin akan lebih masuk akal jika pemerintah menyamakan

    tarif royalti menurut mutu batubara yang dihasilkan oleh perusahaan-perusahaan yang

    memiliki lisensi PKP2B dan IUP, kata ketua ICMA, Bob Kamandanu.
