The gas needed for the area is 4,326,856 m3/year with a route of 41,122.25 m using a combination of MDPE SDR 11 pipe and API 5L Grade B pipe. The capital expenditure is calculated to be IDR 70,511,737,825 with operational costs of IDR 4,141,071,275/year and project lifetime of 20 years. Based on the economic analysis, this project is feasible with households' gas selling price of IDR 7,200/m3 and commercials' gas selling price of IDR 8,400/m3, where the calculated NPV is IDR 5,303,138,979 with 12,29% of IRR and payback period time of 7 years.
