The construction of Gresik LNG receiving terminal is aimed to fulfil the 109 MMSCFD (0.87 MTPA) gas requirement for combined-cycle power plant (PLTGU) Jawa-3 which is integrated with LNG Gresik Terminal. There are several potential LNG plants in Indonesia and abroad that can be the source of gas for Gresik LNG Terminal. Each of these LNG plants has varying gas price and distance to Gresik. The modelling of the LNG logistics system for Gresik LNG Terminal was built to illustrate the LNG supply chain from the LNG plants to Gresik LNG Terminal and several supply scenarios will be proposed. The built model is linear and optimized by using linear programming. Linear programming involves the determination of objective functions, decision variables and constraints. The optimization of the logistics system aims to obtain the cheapest gas supply cost for Gresik LNG receiving terminal. The result shows that the cheapest gas supply cost is obtained through direct supply scenario with gas source from domestic and abroad with combination of delivery from Bontang equal to 0.34 MTPA (40 %) with 12 shipments, Tangguh equal to 0.26 MTPA (30 %) with 9 shipments, and Bintulu Malaysia equal to 0.26 MTPA (30 %) with 9 shipments.
