"Whatever is needed [NGRR] on this issue we are ready," said Fathul Huda, Thursday (11/15).

It is reported that NGRR requires 340 hectares of land in Jenu District. Some 15 percent of the land can be obtained because of the Ministry of Environment and Forestry (KLHK). 

     The remaining 85 percent of the land owned by residents does not want to be released. For this problem, Huda asked, so that all parties think broadly, do not think for themselves or personally. This NGRR project will improve the economy in Tuban.

"What do we want our children and grandchildren to work for, everything must be discussed, don't just refuse" Huda ordered.

The man born in Montong Tuban also expressed his desire that the two-state cooperation project be built in Tuban. Because it can prosper the survival of the people of Tuban. This oil refinery is important. How will our children and grandchildren continue "he concluded.

Huda Berjanji Siapkan Lahan Minyak NGRR


Tiga tahun pembebasan lahan tidak segera selasai untuk rencana kilang minyak New Grass Root Refinery (NGRR) di Desa Remen dan Mentoso, Kecamatan Jenu, Kabupaten Tuban. Direktur Utama Pertamina Nicke Widyawati memberi sinyal pindah lokasi.

Bupati Tuban Fathul Huda buru-buru berjanji akan berupaya keras menyelesaikan pembebasan lahan agar rencana NGRR tetap di Tuban. NGRR adalah perusahaan patungan Pertamina dan Rosneft dari Rusia. 

"Apapun yang dibutuhkan [NGRR] atas masalah ini kami siap," kata Fathul Huda, Kamis (15/11).

Diberitakan NGRR membutuhkan lahan 340 hektare di Kecamatan Jenu. Sebagian lahan sekitar 15 persen bisa diperoleh lantaran milik Kementerian Lingkungan Hidup dan Kehutanan (KLHK). Selebihnya 85 persen lahan milik warga belum mau dibebaskan. Untuk masalah ini, Huda meminta, agar semua pihak berpikir secara luas, jangan berpikir untuk diri sendiri atau pribadi. Proyek NGRR ini akan meningkatkan ekonomi di Tuban.

"Mau kerja apa anak cucu kita nanti, semua harus dibicarakan, jangan asal menolak" pesan Huda.

Pria kelahiran Montong Tuban itu juga menyatakan keinginannya agar proyek kerja sama dua negara itu tetap dibangun di Tuban. Karena bisa menyejahterakan kelangsungan hidup masyarakat Tuban.  Kilang minyak ini penting. Bagaimana kelangsungan anak cucu kita nanti" pungkasnya.

8:18 PM



The Geological Agency of the Ministry of Energy and Mineral Resources (ESDM) found five new potential oil and gas reserves in the eastern region of Indonesia. The government claims the reserves are very economical to be developed and can enter the oil and gas block auction specifications.

The Head of the ESDM Geological Agency, Rudy Suhendra, said the five potential oil and gas reserves are located in West Singkawang, Banyumas Basin, Papua Boka Area, Kutai Basin and West Agats Area (Papua). However, the Geology Agency has not been able to explain in detail the potential of oil and gas reserves from the five regions. Understandably, the potential for oil and gas reserves can later be proven through exploration activities.

Banyumas Basin

"Resources are not yet known, only indications of a reserve, will be resumed. The process is at the Ministry of Energy and Mineral Resources Directorate General of Oil and Gas, there will be a sequence of exploration," added Rudy, Thursday (11/15).

Thus, the government expects five potential reserves to be included in the oil and gas block auction process. As a result, cooperation contract contractors (KKKS) can carry out further exploration activities. Moreover, according to Rudy, the five potential oil and gas reserves are very economical to develop.

"From the preliminary study, the potential for oil and gas reserves is very economical. Therefore, the data already exists. We hope this will be included in the auction process, then we will socialize to interested parties," said Rudy.

He acknowledged the efforts of the Geological Agency to find potential oil and gas reserves supported by funding as basic as possible from the State Expenditures Budget (APBN), which is worth Rp. 70 billion, for exploration activities.

Pemerintah Menemukan Lima Cadangan Migas Baru


Badan Geologi Kementerian Energi dan Sumber Daya Mineral (ESDM) menemukan lima potensi cadangan minyak dan gas (migas) baru di Wilayah timur Indonesia. Pemerintah mengklaim cadangan tersebut sangat ekonomis untuk dikembangkan dan bisa masuk spesifikasi lelang blok migas.

Kepala Badan Geologi Kementerian ESDM, Rudy Suhendra, menyebutkan lima potensi cadangan migas tersebut berlokasi di West Singkawang, Banyumas Basin, Boka Area Papua, Kutai Basin dan West Agats Area (Papua). Namun Badan Geologi belum bisa menjelaskan secara mendetail berapa potensi cadangan migas dari lima wilayah tersebut. Maklum, potensi cadangan migas nanti bisa dibuktikan melalui kegiatan eksplorasi. 

"Resources belum diketahui, hanya indikasi ada cadangan, nanti dilanjutkan. Prosesnya ada pada Direktorat Jenderal Migas Kementerian ESDM, nanti ada urutan eksplorasi," imbuh Rudy, Kamis (15/11).

Dengan demikian, pemerintah mengharapkan lima potensi cadangan bisa diikut sertakan dalam proses lelang blok migas. Alhasil, kontraktor kontrak kerja sama (KKKS) bisa melaksanakan kegiatan eksplorasi lebih lanjut. Apalagi, menurut Rudy, kelima potensi cadangan migas tersebut sangat ekonomis untuk dikembangkan.

"Dari kajian awal, potensi cadangan migas tersebut sangat ekonomis. Oleh karena itu, datanya sudah ada. Kami mengharapkan ini masuk dalam proses lelang, nanti kami akan mensosialisasikan kepada peminat,“ ungkap Rudy.

Dia mengakui upaya Badan Geologi menemukan potensi cadangan migas didukung oleh pendanaan ala kadarnya dari Anggaran Pendapatan Belanja Negara (APBN), yakni senilai Rp 70 miliar, untuk kegiatan eksplorasi.

PT Rekayasa Industri, the developer of the Cirebon-Semarang segment of the transmission gas pipeline project, is targeting the supply of natural gas from the Jambaran Tiung Biru Field in Bojonegoro, Central Java to be channeled through the Cirebon-Semarang gas pipeline.

Yanuar Budinorman, Managing Director of Industri Industri (Rekind), said that the process of discussing the construction of the Cirebon-Semarang gas pipeline project has entered the final stage, including regarding the source of gas supply. Currently there are two gas sources being tested by the subsidiary, PT Pupuk Indonesia (Persero).

Jambaran-Tiung Biru, Cepu Block

The two gas sources come from Jambaran-Tiung Biru, Cepu Block which is managed by PT Pertamina EP Cepu (PEPC) as many as 20 million cubic feet per day (MMscfd). The natural gas supply will also be imported and the Madura BD Field, the Madura Strait Block managed by Husky CNOOC Madura Ltd. (HCML).


"That 20 MMscfd from Jambaran-Tiung Biru is one of them. We begged again, another 20 MMscfd plus from Husky. So because we have partnered with Pertagas [PT Pertamina Gas] and BBG [PT Bayu Buana Gemilang] who are looking for their source, but they already know the source and everything, "he said recently.

Rekind targets the physical construction of the gas pipeline to begin at the end of December 2018. PT Pertamina EP Cepu said that it would be available the addition of gas production from the Jambaran-Tiung Biru Field development project amounted to 20 MMscfd.

Pertamina EP President Director Cepu Jamsaton Nababan said the increase in production from the initial estimate of 172 MMscfd came from optimizing project design. Later, from the total production of 192 MMscfd, the allocation of 100 MMscfd is for Pertamina (Persero), which is then channeled to PLN for electricity needs in East and Central Java.

Gas of 72 MMscfd will supply industrial needs in Central and East Java. Meanwhile, his side is currently looking for potential buyers for gas allocation of 20 MMscfd.

"Is the process going to all Persero or other buyers. If there is interest, please. "

Meanwhile, Rekind, a provider of engineering, procurement and construction (engineering, procurement, construction / EPC), was awarded in the construction of the Kamojang 5 Geothermal Power Plant (PLTP).

Through the holding of the Conference of the Asean Federation of Engineering Organization (CAFEO 36th) on 12-14 November 2018, Rekind was awarded the 2018 Asean Engineering Award, for the company category.

Rekind Incar Gas Tiung Biru


PT Rekayasa Industri, pengembang proyek pipa gas transmisi ruas Cirebon-Semarang, mentargetkan suplai gas bumi dari Lapangan Jambaran Tiung Biru di Bojonegoro, Jawa Tengah untuk dialirkan melalui pipa gas Cirebon-Semarang.

Direktur Utama Rekayasa Industri (Rekind) Yanuar Budinorman mengatakan, proses pembahasan pembangunan proyek pipa gas ruas Cirebon-Semarang telah memasuki tahap akhir, termasuk mengenai sumber pasokan gas. Saat ini sudah ada dua sumber gas yang tengah dicoba oleh anak usaha PT Pupuk Indonesia (Persero) tersebut.

Dua sumber gas tersebut berasal dari Jambaran-Tiung Biru, Blok Cepu yang dikelola PT Pertamina EP Cepu sebanyak 20 juta kaki kubik per hari (MMscfd). Suplai gas bumi juga akan didatangkan dan Lapangan Madura BD, Blok Madura Strait yang dikelola oleh Husky CNOOC Madura Ltd. (HCML).

“Itu 20 MMscfd dari Jambaran-Tiung Biru salah satunya. Kami lagi mohonkan, 20 MMscfd lagi plus dari Husky. Jadi karena kami sudah bermitra dengan Pertagas [PT Pertamina Gas] dan BBG [PT Bayu Buana Gemilang] yang mencari sumbernya mereka, tetapi sudah tahu sumber dan mana aja,” katanya, belum lama ini.

Rekind menargetkan, pembangunan fisik pipa gas tersebut dimulai pada akhir Desember 2018. PT Pertamina EP Cepu menyatakan akan terdapat
penambahan produksi gas dari proyek pengembangan Lapangan Jambaran-Tiung Biru sebesar 20 MMscfd. 

Direktur Utama Pertamina EP Cepu Jamsaton Nababan mengatakan, peningkatan produksi dari perkiraan awal sebesar 172 MMscfd tersebut berasal dari optimalisasi desain proyek. Nantinya, dari total produksi 192 MMscfd tersebut, alokasi sebesar 100 MMscfd diperuntukkan untuk Pertamina (Persero), yang kemudian dialirkan ke PLN untuk kebutuhan listrik di Jawa Timur dan Jawa Tengah.

Gas sebanyak 72 MMscfd akan memasok kebutuhan industri di Jawa Tengah dan Jawa Timur. Sementara itu, pihaknya saat ini sedang mencari calon pembeli untuk alokasi gas sebesar 20 MMscfd. 

“Sedang proses apakah ke Persero semua atau pembeli lain. Kalau ada yang minat silahkan.”

Sementara itu, Rekind, perusahaan penyedia rekayasa, pengadaan dan konstruksi (engineering, procurement, Construction/EPC) , mendapatkan penghargaan dalam pembangunan Pembangkit Listrik Tenaga Panas Bumi (PLTP) Kamojang 5.

The contractor only thinks of IRR & legal certainty

  No comments
8:03 PM



How do you see the national oil and gas sector?

I don't look too much at the regime because this has nothing to do with exploration. So, what I see is the facts in the upstream oil and gas sector. Which is a problem where. Then I looked for a solution. Which is my authority, I do it. Because this is indeed the case, discovery [oil and gas field discovery] is indeed when seen from the year already, existed since the era of the First Order, the New Order, until the Reformation.

However, it has nothing to do. Discovery is related to exploration, not with its cabinet. So, what I did since becoming the Head of SKK Migas in 2014 I observed first. What is the situation like? Oh this is funny, after that I see which one I can take care of. Oh oh that, oh this is important, but this is not my authority, it is allowed.

The way it works is that. So, not everything I see as a problem can be done. There are also problems that I know the solution is like this, but I don't have the ability. Yes, let it go first.

How is the oil and gas sector going forward?

What kind of policy will come, I don't know, because in the future the cabinet is also different. For me, I have asked investors and also use my own logic. Cost recovery and gross split are not a problem. Investors see investment in the country as a royalty system, then with country B with cost recovery, it doesn't matter.

They will later ask the Investment office in Indonesia for example. His name is boss does not ask details, most questions asked are like this. How much investment in Indonesia is the Internal Rate of Return (IRR)? How many other countries? how much do we get?

As a boss, what do you think? What is seen is the IRR. Second, legal certainty. Well, they will decide with two things, the IRR and the legal certainty.

Indonesia is quite competitive about legal certainty?

According to them enough, quite competitive. They also see which big potential? In country A, for example, if the IRR is large, but the lead [oil and gas potential] is small, what for? This lead becomes a prospect, if the lead is small, big companies don't want it, different from medium or small companies. What I know in the oil and gas industry is that there are characters. So it is only natural that small oil and gas blocks do not appeal to large-scale oil and gas investors.

What about Pertamina, which gets the termination oil and gas block?

If I become the ruler of Pertamina, I say I don't want to. Look, like someone who has a car and wants to sell it after using 4 years, if I have money, of course I don't buy the auctioned car?

If I don't have money, then I buy it. If I drive a company, what is my performance index? Of course talk of profit. One measure of KPI is that my company's stock rises high. It turns out this way, we see ENI found the Zhor [Mediterranean] Block of that size, ENI shares rose. Of course directors can get a big bonus.



Well indeed for upstream companies, what is sought is a large field because fortunately there. However, if you operate a mature field, fortunately from where? Indeed there is no risk, so the return is small. Indeed, the discovery of the risk is big, but if you get the benefits are also large.

What is the secret of your leadership?

If I see the key is problem solving. So the problem is what is the solution. So, if I meet partners [the contractor of the contract] says, the problem is my business, so if you have any problems let me know I will solve it. The direction is just like that.

And they are open?

Wow they are very happy. Formerly like British Petroleum, they suddenly received a letter from the KPK. I did not know the story, there was no wind, there was no rain, came a letter from the Corruption Eradication Commission (CEC/KPK). Notifying them they may not use the Trustee Borrowing Scheme (TBS) scheme.

Now BP is coming back and forth. I help communicate with the KPK. Then finally there is a letter from the KPK which says please proceed. After that there was no problem. When investor problems are over, they will focus on the core business. Look for oil and find gas. Now that will help SKK Migas KPI. So, what I do is managing upstream oil and gas, right?

Do you have enough bureaucratic reform?

There is something funny that I consider to be a problem. In SKK Migas when I was invited to the meeting of the deputies, the invitation was in the form of a letter. I wasn't used to that before.

Then I thought, if this invitation from SKK Migas, on this day, can reach me, it can arrive tomorrow. So I tried the Commercial Division, if I just made an invitation in an email, I could. Finally all must be so. Paperless doesn't. Reduced yes. So if internal use email. I spent 3 months.

Kontraktor hanya Berpikir IRR & Kepastian Hukum


Bagaimana Anda melihat sektor migas nasional?

Saya tidak terlalu melihat ke rezim karena ini tidak ada hubungannya dengan eksplorasi. Jadi, yang saya lihat fakta-fakta di hulu migas ini seperti apa. Yang merupakan masalah di mana. Terus saya mencari solusi. Mana yang menjadi kewenangan saya, saya kerjakan. Karena memang begini, discovery [penemuan lapangan migas] ini memang kalau dilihat dari tahunnya sudah, ada sejak era Orde Iama, Orde Baru, hingga Reformasi.

Namun, tidak ada hubungannya. Discovery ini berhubungan dengan eksplorasi, bukan dengan kabinetnya. Jadi, yang saya lakukan sejak menjadi Kepala SKK Migas pada 2014 saya mengamati terlebih dahulu. Situasinya seperti apa? Oh ini lucu nih, setelah itu saya lihat mana yang bisa saya urus. Oh oh itu, oh ini penting, tapi ini bukan kewenangan saya, maka dibiarkan.

Cara kerjanya begitu. Jadi, tidak semua yang saya lihat sebagai masalah bisa dikerjakan. Ada juga masalah yang saya tahu solusinya begini, tetapi saya tidak punya kemampuan. Ya sudah biarkan dulu. 

Bagaimana sektor migas ke depan?

Kebijakan yang akan datang seperti apa, saya tidak tahu, karena ke depan kabinetnya juga berbeda. Kalau saya, sudah tanya  investor dan juga menggunakan logika saya sendiri. Cost recovery dan gross split itu tidak masalah. Investor itu melihat investasi di negara ada dengan sistem royalty, lalu dengan negara B dengan cost recovery, tidak masalah.

Mereka nanti minta ke kantor Investasi di Indonesia  misalnya. Namanya bos tidak tanya detail, paling pertanyaan yang diajukan begini. Kalau investasi di Indonesia Internal Rate of Return (IRR) kita dapat berapa? Kalau di negara lain berapa? kita dapat berapa? 

Sebagai bos mikirnya bagaimana? Yang dilihat adalah IRR-nya. Kedua, kepastian hukum. Nah, mereka akan memutuskan dengan dua hal itu, IRR dan kepastian hukum. 

Indonesia cukup kompetitif masalah kepastian hukum?

Menurut mereka cukup, cukup kompetitif. Mereka juga melihat potensi yang besar mana? Kalau di negara A misalnya kalau IRR besar, tetapi lead [potensi migas] kecil, buat apa? Lead ini menjadi prospek, kalau lead-nya kecil perusahaan besar itu tidak mau, berbeda dengan perusahaan medium atau kecil. Yang saya tahu di industri migas ada karakter seperti itu. Makanya wajar kalau blok migas kecil tidak menarik bagi investor migas skala besar. 

Bagaimana dengan Pertamina yang mendapat blok migas terminasi?

Kalau saya jadi penguasa Pertamina, aku bilang tidak mau. Begini, semisal ada yang punya mobil lalu ingin menjualnya setelah memakai 4 tahun, kalau semisal saya punya uang tentu tidak membeli mobil yang dilelang itu dong?

Kalau tidak punya uang, setelah itu saya beli. Kalau saya menyetir perusahaan, apa itu KPI [indeks kinerja] saya? Tentu bicara profit. Salah satu ukuran KPI adalah kalau saham perusahaan saya naik tinggi. Ternyata begini, kita lihat ENI menemukan Blok Zhor [Mediterania] dengan ukuran sebesar itu, saham ENI naik. Tentu direksi dapat bonus besar.

Nah memang untuk perusahaan hulu, yang dicari adalah lapangan besar Karena untungnya di situ. Namun, kalau mengoperasikan lapangan mature [tua], tapi untungnya dari mana? Memang tidak ada risiko, makanya return-nya kecil. Memang discovery risikonya besar, tapi kalau dapatkan keuntungannya juga besar.

Apa rahasia kepemimpinan Anda?

Kalau saya lihat kuncinya adalah problem solving. Jadi, masalahnya apa solusinya apa. Makanya saya kalau ketemu mitra [kontraktor kontrak kerja sama] bilang, problem is my business, so if you have any problem let me know i will solve it. Arahnya begitu aja. 

Dan mereka terbuka?

Wah mereka sangat senang. Dulu seperti British Petroleum, mereka tiba-tiba dapat surat dari KPK. Saya tidak tahu ceritanya, tidak ada angin tidak ada hujan, datang surat dari Komisi Pemberantasan Korupsi (KPK). Memberitahukan mereka tidak boleh menggunakan skema Trustee Borrowing Scheme (TBS).

Nah BP ke sini bolak-balik. Saya bantu berkomunikasi dengan KPK. Terus akhirnya ada surat dari KPK yang isinya silakan dilanjutkan. Setelah itu tidak ada masalah. Kalau masalah investor selesai, mereka akan fokus ke inti bisnisnya. Cari minyak dan mencari gas. Nah itu yang akan bantu KPI SKK Migas. Jadi, cara kelola hulu migas yang saya lakukan ya begitu.

Cukup banyak reformasi birokrasi yang Bapak lakukan?

Ada yang lucu-lucu saja nih yang saya anggap sebagai masalah. Di dalam SKK Migas dulu waktu saya masuk diundang rapat deputi, undangannya itu berbentuk surat. Saya sebelumnya tidak terbiasa begitu.

Lalu saya pikir, kalau begini undangan dari SKK Migas, pada hari ini, bisa sampai pada saya, bisa sampai besok. Jadi saya coba Divisi Komersial, kalau memo undangan di email saja, bisa. Akhirnya semua harus gitu. Paperless sih tidak. Berkurang iya. Jadi kalau internal memakai email. Itu 3 bulan saya menghabiskan waktu.

7:51 PM



State-owned energy holding company Pertamina has shipped the first cargo of liquefied natural gas (LNG) from its recently awarded Sanga-Sanga oil and gas block in East Kalimantan in what has become the first LNG shipment for a unit operated under the gross-split scheme.

Pertamina subsidiary Pertamina Hulu Sanga-Sanga (PHSS) took over the asset from oil and gas company PT Virginia indonesia Company (VICO), which had operated the block for more than four decades. PHSS director Andi Wisnu expressed his appreciation to all stakeholders that had helped in the production, commercialization and monetization of LNG from the block.



”We appreciate [the efforts of] all that were involved, starting from the preparation and processing to the LNG shipment from the Badak LNG refinery, which is operated by PT Badak NGL in Bontang, East Kalimantan,” he said. He did not disclose the volume of LNG on the maiden shipment.

Sanga-Sanga Block East Kalimantan

The block currently produces around 16,000 barrels of oil equivalent per day (boepd) and 70 million metric standard cubic feet per day (mmscfd) of gas.

Pertamina Encouraged to Complete the Land Constraints in Tuban Refinery

  No comments
7:44 PM



The Ministry of Energy and Mineral Resources (ESDM) ordered PT Pertamina (Persero) to send a team to solve the problem of land acquisition which is the location of the 300 thousand barrel per day (bpd) refinery project in Tuban, East Java. Tuban is considered the most strategic location to build refineries. ESDM Minister Ignasius Jonan said the government had determined the location of the construction of this new refinery in Tuban, East Java.

Location determination in Tuban has gone through comprehensive studies and considerations, both location, topography, and consideration of earth studies. Tuban is histologically a minimal area affected by natural disasters such as earthquakes and tsunamis.

"But for the past few years we have received reports of problems with land acquisition that are not easy," he said in his official statement on Wednesday (11/14).

For this reason, his party ordered Pertamina to send a team back to resolve the land problem. It wants the issue of land acquisition to be completed soon.

Pertamina's Managing Director Nicke Widyawati

"Try Mrs. Nicke (Managing Director, Pertamina) to send the team again, try checking again, if possible quickly. If it cannot be resolved, it is forced to move locations construction of the refinery, "continued Jonan.

Pertamina's Managing Director Nicke Widyawati admitted that land acquisition needed for the construction of an 800-hectare refinery was still an obstacle. At the location of the plan to be built by the refinery, there is 350 hectares of land belonging to the Ministry of Environment, while the rest belongs to the community. He said, in the past three years, his party had made various efforts to complete the land acquisition.

"To follow up on the request of the Minister of Energy and Mineral Resources, Pertamina will send a team to complete the release, so in this month we will send another team to solve this land problem," Nicke explained.

In fact, previously Pertamina and the East Java Provincial Government had previously signed a memorandum of understanding on the use of land assets of the Ministry of Environment and Forestry in Tanjung Awar-Awar, Tuban, East Java.

In the memorandum of understanding, the East Java Provincial Government supports the Ministry of Environment and Forestry's land use for the construction of the Tuban Refinery.

Nicke added, Pertamina was very eager to build a refinery in Tuban because at that location there was a Petrochemical Complex so that it could be integrated. The planned construction of the refinery in Tuban has been planned since 2016.

"The government wants the refinery to be built to reduce imports of fuel oil to cover the needs of consumers in the country, so we cannot wait anymore. We will immediately do another discussion with the Regional Government here so that a decision can be taken immediately, "She continued.

Previously, Deputy Minister of ESDM Arcandra Tahar said that Pertamina had reported that the Tubah Refinery Project could potentially be moved to Situbondo. But this is difficult because the location is close to a military training ground. In addition, there are other considerations in doing so location study in Situbondo. Another study took the Geological Agency regarding potential hazards because Situbondo was close to Mount Ijen.

Ijen Mount, Banuwangi - East Java

He said, there were other locations which were the options of the Tuban refinery. It's just that he still doesn't want to say his location. He was also reluctant to approve his location in the East Java area. "There are (other alternatives)," he said.


As is known, Pertamina cooperates with oil and gas companies from Russia, Rosneft Oil Company in working on the Tuban Refinery. The two companies have formed a joint venture, namely PT Pertamina Rosneft Processing and Petrochemicals (PRPP), which will work on the Tuban Refinery Project worth US $ 15 billion. Pertamina holds a 55% shareholding and Rosneft 45%.

The plan, Tuban Refinery will produce gasoline (gasoline) products of 80 thousand bpd, solar 90 thousand bpd, and 26 thousand bp avtur. Not only that, Tuban Refinery will also produce new petrochemical products. The details of this product are 1.3 million tons of polypropylene per year, polyethylene 0.65 million tons per year, styrene 0.5 million tons per year and paraxylene 1.3 million tons per year.

In addition to increasing the supply of fuel and petrochemicals, the Tuban Refinery Project is also planned to be able to absorb 20 thousand to 40 thousand workers during construction and 2,000 workers after operating. This project will also have a positive chain effect, in the form of taxes for the government and economic growth of national and regional communities.

Pertamina Didorong Selesaikan Kendala Lahan Kilang Tuban


Kementerian Energi dan Sumber Daya Mineral (ESDM) memerintahkan PT Pertamina (Persero) untuk mengirim tim untuk menyelesaikan masalah pembebasan lahan yang menjadi lokasi proyek kilang 300 ribu barel per hari (bph) di Tuban, Jawa Timur. Tuban dinilai sebagai lokasi paling strategis untuk membangun kilang. Menteri ESDM Ignasius Jonan mengatakan, pemerintah telah menentukan lokasi pembangunan kilang baru ini di Tuban, Jawa Timur.

Penentuan lokasi di Tuban tersebut sudah melalui kajian dan pertimbangan yang menyeluruh, baik lokasi, topografi, dan pertimbangan studi kebumian. Tuban secara histons merupakan daerah yang minim terkena bencana alam seperti gempa dan tsunami.

“Namun sudah beberapa tahun ini kami mendapat laporan masalah pembebasan lahan yang tidak mudah,” kata dia dalam keterangan resminya, Rabu (14/ 11).

Untuk itu, pihaknya memerintahkan Pertamina untuk mengirimkan tim kembali untuk menyelesaikan permasalahan lahan tersebut. Pihaknya ingin agar masalah pembebasan lahan ini segera rampung. 

“Coba Ibu Nicke (Direktur Utama, Pertamina) kirim tim lagi, coba dicek lagi, kalau bisa cepat. Jika tidak bisa diselesaikan, terpaksa harus pindah lokasi pembangunan kilangnya,” lanjut Jonan.

Direktur Utama Pertamina Nicke Widyawati mengakui, pembebasan lahan yang dibutuhkan untuk pembangunan kilang seluas 800 hektar masih menjadi kendala. Di lokasi rencana yang akan dibangun kilang, ada lahan milik Kementerian Lingkungan Hidup seluas 350 hektar, sementara sisanya milik masyarakat. Dikatakannya, dalam tiga tahun terakhir, pihaknya sudah melakukan berbagai upaya untuk merampungkan pembebasan lahan ini.

“Untuk menindaklanjuti permintaan Menteri ESDM agar Pertamina kembali mengirimkan tim untuk menyelesaikan pembebasan Iahan, maka dalam bulan ini segera kami akan kirim tim lagi untuk menyelesaikan masalah lahan ini,” jelas Nicke.

Padahal, sebelumnya Pertamina dan Pemerintah Provinsi Jawa Timur sebelumnya telah menandatangani nota kesepahaman pemanfaatan lahan aset Kementerian Lingkungan Hidup dan Kehutanan di Tanjung Awar-Awar, Tuban Jawa Timur.

Dalam nota kesepahaman itu, Pemprov Jawa Timur mendukung pemanfaatan lahan Kementerian Lingkungan Hidup dan Kehutanan untuk pembangunan Kilang Tuban. 
Nicke menambahkan, Pertamina sangat berkeinginan untuk membangun kilang di Tuban karena di lokasi tersebut sudah ada Kompleks Petrokimia sehingga dapat diintegrasikan. Rencana pembangunan kilang di Tuban ini sudah direncanakan sejak 2016 lalu. 

“Pemerintah ingin sekali kilang ini dibangun untuk mengurangi impor bahan bakar minyak untuk menutupi kebutuhan konsumen didalam negeri, karena itu kita tidak bisa menunggu lagi. Kami segera lakukan lagi pembahasan dengan Pemerintah Daerah di sini agar dapat segera diambil-keputusan,” lanjut dia.

Sebelumnya, Wakil Menteri ESDM Arcandra Tahar mengatakan, Pertamina sudah melaporkan bahwa Proyek Kilang Tubah berpotensi dipindah ke Situbondo. Namun hal ini sulit dilakukan lantaran lokasi tersebut dekat dengan tempat latihan militer. Selain itu, ada pertimbangan lain dalam melakukan kajian lokasi di Situbondo. Kajian lainnya itu menggandeng Badan Geologi mengenai potensi bahaya lantaran Situbondo dekat dengan Gunung Ijen.

Dikatakannya, ada lokasi lain yang menjadi opsi dari kilang Tuban. Hanya saja dia masih belum mau mengatakan lokasinya. Dia pun enggan menyetujui lokasinya masih di daerah Jawa Timur. “Ada (alternatif lain),” ujarnya.

Seperti diketahui, Pertamina menggandeng perusahaan migas dari Rusia, Rosneft Oil Company dalam mengerjakan Kilang Tuban. Kedua perusahaan itu telah membentuk perusahaan patungan, yakni PT Pertamina Rosneft Pengolahan dan Petrokimia (PRPP), yang akan menggarap Proyek Kilang Tuban senilai US$ 15 miliar. Pertamina memegang kepemilikan saham 55% dan Rosneft 45%.

Rencananya, Kilang Tuban akan menghasilkan produk bensin (gasoline) sebesar 80 ribu bph, solar 90 ribu bph, dan avtur 26 ribu bph. Tidak hanya itu, Kilang Tuban juga akan memproduksi produk-produk baru petrokimia.

Chevron Oil Shaking Tax to Pertamina.

As an oil and gas contractor (KKKS) that has an obligation to sell oil, until now PT Chevron Pacific Indonesia has not done so. Willing to sell oil to Pertamina, Chevron still has objections to tax issues.



Minister of Finance Regulation Number 34 of 2017 makes contractors like Chevron taxable if they sell their oil domestically. Conversely, if you bring the oil abroad you are exempt from tax. This makes contractors prefer to export their oil rather than selling it to Pertamina.

Even so, the Director General of Oil and Gas at the Ministry of Energy and Mineral Resources (ESDM) Djoko Siswanto noted that there were nine oil and gas contractors interested in selling their part of crude oil to Pertamina.

"The deal has been sold to Pertamina," he said.

Even so, there are problems that hinder the implementation of this program, especially related to negotiations involving the sale and purchase of large volumes of oil.

"Like Chevron, there are tax issues. This is in the Letter from Mrs. Nicke (Pertamina's Managing Director), there is a discussion, one of which is about taxes, "he said.

The policy on the sale of oil and gas contractor products to Pertamina refers to the Minister of Energy and Mineral Resources Regulation No. 42 of 2018 concerning Priority for Utilizing Petroleum for Fulfilling Domestic Needs. Pertamina and business entities holding petroleum management business licenses must look for petroleum supplies from domestic contractors before planning to import petroleum.

As for the use of currencies in crude oil sales transactions, the government does not limit. In fact, the emergence of ESDM Ministerial Regulation 42/2018 is a response to the weakening of the rupiah exchange rate against the US dollar (US).

"Want to use the rupiah please, it's not limited," said Djoko.

PT Pertamina's Corporate Communication Vice President, Adiatma Sardjito, stated that Pertamina is still seeking all crude oil purchase transactions using the rupiah. What is certain, at present, is the total agreed oil sales volume of 3.62 million barrels of oil, and will come into effect early 2019.

"The calculation is a purchase per year," Adiatma said.

Pajak Ganjal Minyak Chevron ke Pertamina.


Sebagai kontraktor migas (KKKS) yang memiliki kewajiban menjual minyak, hingga kini PT Chevron Pacific Indonesia belum melakukannya. Bersedia menjual minyak ke Pertamina, Chevron masih keberatan dengan masalah perpajakan.

Peraturan Menteri Keuangan Nomor 34 Tahun 2017 membuat kontraktor seperti Chevron terkena pajak jika menjual minyaknya ke dalam negeri. Sebaliknya, jika membawa minyaknya ke luar negeri justru dibebaskan dari pajak. Hal ini membuat kontraktor lebih memilih mengekspor minyaknya daripada menjual ke Pertamina.

Meski begitu, Direktur Jenderal Minyak dan Gas Bumi (Migas) Kementerian Energi dan Sumber Daya Mineral (ESDM) Djoko Siswanto mencatat, sudah ada sembilan kontraktor migas yang berminat menjual hasil minyak mentah bagian mereka ke Pertamina. 

“Sudah deal dijual kepada Pertamina," ungkap dia.

Meski begitu, ada permasalahan yang menghambat implementasi program ini, terutama terkait negosiasi yang melibatkan jual beli volume minyak dalam jumlah besar.

“Seperti Chevron, ada masalah pajak. Ini ada dalam Surat dari Bu Nicke (Dirut Pertamina), ada diskusi, salah satunya soal pajak,” ujar dia.

Kebijakan penjualan hasil minyak kontraktor migas kepada Pertamina mengacu Peraturan Menteri ESDM Nomor 42 Tahun 2018 tentang Prioritas Pemanfaatan Minyak Bumi untuk Pemenuhan Kebutuhan Dalam Negeri. Pertamina dan badan usaha pemegang izin usaha pengelolaan minyak bumi Wajib mencari pasokan minyak bumi dari kontraktor dalam negeri sebelum merencanakan impor minyak bumi.

Adapun penggunaan mata uang dalam transaksi penjualan minyak mentah, pemerintah tidak membatasi. Padahal, munculnya Peraturan Menteri ESDM 42/2018 merupakan respons atas pelemahan nilai tukar rupiah terhadap dollar Amerika Serikat (AS). 

“Mau menggunakan rupiah silakan, tidak dibatasi,” ungkap Djoko.

Vice President Corporate Communication PT Pertamina, Adiatma Sardjito mengemukakan, Pertamina masih mengupayakan transaksi pembelian minyak mentah seluruhnya menggunakan mata uang rupiah. Yang sudah pasti, saat ini, total volume penjualan minyak yang disepakati sebesar 3,62 juta barel minyak, dan mulai berlaku awal 2019. 

“Hitungannya pembelian per tahun, ” kata Adiatma.

The plan is to hold a Russian company

The New Grass Root Refinery [NGRR] Oil Refinery Project, Pertamina's joint venture with Rosneft, a Russian company which is planned to be located in Remen and Mentoso Villages, Jenu Sub-District, Tuban Regency, East Java, its construction cannot be ascertained. The project which is expected to raise the economy in the Tuban region is still hindered by land acquisition.

"Hopefully the problem will be resolved soon, because this problem has been going on for three years, but it has not been completed yet related to the acquisition of land owned by residents," said Ignasius Jonan, Minister of Energy and Mineral Resources (ESDM). kit (transfer from BBM to gas) to fishermen.

Jonan further said that the land needed by the two countries' companies was approximately 340 hectares. At that location, government-owned land through the Ministry of Environment and Forestry [KLHK] was only 15 percent, while the remaining approximately 85 hectares still belonged to the residents of Mentoso Village and Remen Village.

In the event the distribution of kit converters on the mangrove beach in Jenu District was also attended by the Regent of Tuban, Fathul Huda, and also the Deputy Regent of Tuban, Noor Nahar Hussein.

"The problem with the constraints of the NGRR oil refinery plan is also our hot topic," he said.

Job offer

In an informal conversation with the Regent Fathul Huda regarding the NGRR refinery, Jonan has proposed several proposals that landowners want to give up some of their land for greater public interest. One of Jonan's proposals to the Regent of Fathul was approaching residents and offering jobs to residents when the oil refinery operated.

"If the problem is land, try to offer it to the land owner's family. They will get the privilege of placing a family to work at Pertamina-Rosneft," Jonan said on the sidelines accompanied by the Regent and Vice Regent of Tuban.

He revealed, this land problem has been going on for a long time, so it needs immediate treatment.

"It's been three years, but the land problem has not yet finished. Hopefully it will be settled, what land owners want to try to accommodate is suggested by Jonan.

Unfortunately, the Regent of Tuban, Fathul Huda, admitted that he had not intensively met with residents, especially landowners who were about to be released.

"So far there has been no request from landowners for refusing to sell their land. To be honest, we do not yet know what the landowners want, we will cover it," promised the regent in these two periods.

Other Regions.

The President Director of PT Pertamina, Nicke Widyawati who joined the group of the Minister of Energy and Mineral Resources, also participated in responding to the development of oil refinery land which had no immediate solution.

"I hope that the land problem, which has been in place for three years, can be finished, as soon as possible," hoped Nicke.

Asked about the possibility of finding another area for the placement of the NGRR oil refinery, Nicke did not reject the proposal.

"The option to search for other areas exists, but so far we are still reviewing the profits and losses," the executive stressed.

Nicke acknowledged that he could not arbitrarily place an oil refinery somewhere.

"To build an oil refinery, there are a lot of considerations, technical issues, security, etc.," She concluded.

Proyek Minyak di Tuban Terhambat


Rencananya menggandeng perusahaan Rusia

Proyek Kilang Minyak New Grass Root Refinery [NGRR), patungan pertamina dengan Rosneft perusahaan dari Rusia yang rencananya ditempatkan di Desa Remen dan Mentoso, Kecamatan Jenu, Kabupaten Tuban Jawa Timur belum bisa dipastikan pembangunannya. Proyek yang diharapkan akan membangkitkan ekonomi di wilayah Tuban itu sampai sekarang masih terkendala pembebasan lahan. 

"Harapannya masalahnya segera diselesaikan, karena masalah ini sudah berlangsung selama tiga tahun, tapi belum selesai juga terkait pembebasan lahan milik warga," kata' Ignasius Jonan, Menteri Energi dan Sumber Daya Mineral (ESDM) di sela-sela acara pembagian 200 paker mesin konverter kit (pengalihan dari BBM ke gas) kepada nelayan.

Lebih jauh Jonan menyebutkan lahan yang dibutuhkan perusahaan dua negara tersebut kira-kira kurang lebih 340 hektare. Di lokasi itu, lahan milik pemerintah melalui Kementerian Lingkungan Hidup dan Kehutanan [KLHK] hanya 15 persen, sedangkan selebihnya sekira 85 hektare masih milik warga Desa Mentoso dan Desa Remen.

Di acara pembagian konverter kit di pantai mangrove di Kecamatan Jenu itu juga dihadiri Bupati Tuban, Fathul Huda, dan juga Wakil Bupati Tuban, Noor Nahar Hussein. 

"Masalah kendala rencana kilang minyak NGRR juga menjadi pembicaraan hangat kami," ungkapnya.

Tawaran Kerja

Dalam bincang informal dengan Bupati Fathul Huda terkait kilang NGRR, Jonan sudah mengajukan beberapa usulan agar pemilik lahan mau menyerahkan sebagian lahannya untuk kepentingan umum yang lebih besar. Salah satu usulan Jonan kepada Bupati Fathul yakni mendekati warga dan menawarkan pekerjaan bagi warga saat kilang minyak beroperasi.

"Kalau masalahnya lahan, coba ditawarkan kepada keluarga pemilik lahan akan mendapat hak istimewa yakni menempatkan seorang keluarga untuk bekerja di Pertamina-Rosneft," kata Jonan disela-sela berjalan didampingi Bupati dan Wabup Tuban.

Dia mengungkap, masalah lahan ini sudah berlangsung lama, sehingga perlu dilakukan penanganan segera. 

"Sudah tiga tahun, tapi belum juga selesai masalah lahan. Harapannya ya dibereskan, apa yang diinginkan pemilik tanah coba diakomodir usul Jonan.
Sayangnya, Bupati Tuban, Fathul Huda mengaku belum intensif bertemu dengan warga, khususnya pemilik lahan yang hendak dibebaskan.

"Selama ini belum ada permintaan dari warga pemilik lahan untuk penolakan menjual tanahnya. Sejujurnya kami belum tahu apa keinginan dari pemilik lahan, akan kita dalami," janji bupati dua periode ini.

Daerah Lain

Direktur Utama PT Pertamina, Nicke Widyawati yang ikut rombongan Menteri ESDM, ikut menanggapi terkait perkembangan lahan kilang minyak yang tidak segera ada solusinya.

"Saya berharap masalah lahan yang sudah tiga tahun ini, bisa selesai, secepatnya," harap Nicke.

Ditanya kemungkinan untuk mencari daerah lain untuk penempatan kilang minyak NGRR, Nicke tidak menampik usulan itu.

"Opsi untuk mencari daerah lain ada, namun sejauh ini masih sedang kami kaji untung dan ruginya," tegas eksekutif yang berhijab.

Diakui Nicke bahwa tidak bisa sembarangan menempatkan kilang minyak ke suatu tempat. 

"Untuk membangun kilang minyak diperlukan banyak pertimbangan, masalah teknis, keamanan dan lain-lain," pungkasnya.
