Contractor Supports easing of Exploration



The contracting contractors support the government's plan to ease the provision in the transfer or return of oil and gas working areas to the government.

Currently, the government is revising the Government Regulation no. 35/2004 on Upstream Oil and Gas Business Activities to relax the provision of the transfer of oil and gas blocks.

Based on this beleid, the contractor may transfer or return the oil and gas blocks to the government after fulfilling all exploration commitments and other obligations under a cooperation contract.

Executive Director of Indonesian Petroleum Association (IPA) Marjolijn Wajong said it supports the government's plan to divert certain commitments in certain working areas. He hopes that the association can be involved to advise in the revision of Government Regulation no. 35/2004.

According to him, the transfer of the implementation of the commitment must be expected to be transferred not only to other work areas, but also in the form of other activities or have equal value.

Currently, the contractor must complete all definite commitments in a particular work area even if there are obstacles in the field. On the other hand, the contractor can not complete the exact commitment so often just wait until the time exploration ends.

Based on Article 7 of Government Regulation no. 35/2004, the contractor shall settle all the definite commitments as well as activities already written in the cooperation contract before returning the Working Area to the government.

"When transferred, it can be flexible, in accordance with the circumstances and needs that exist in the Working Area that accept the transfer of certain commitments, for example from a certain commitment in the form of drilling of so many wells, can be converted into seismic, with equivalent value or more," She said Wednesday / 11).

A definite commitment is an activity to be undertaken during the first 3 years of exploration activities. Meanwhile, for the next 3 years is called work commitment. On a definite commitment, the activities undertaken are geological and geophysical studies, two-dimensional seismic surveys and drilling of one exploration well.

In the revision of Government Regulation no. 35/2004 will be regulated on the transfer of investment commitments to the exploration block if the contractor is unable to complete a definite commitment.

Director of Harmonization of Legislation II of the Ministry of Law and Human Rights Firman Hilmy said, in the third amendment to Government Regulation no. 35/2004, the Ministry of EMR proposes several points.

First, about a definite work program. Second, about the categorization of data and confidentiality. Third, about the offering of 10% participation shares to local owned enterprises (BUMD).

According to Yunan, based on the results of the meeting on November 22, it has been agreed on the confidentiality of the data. In addition, a description of the proposed amendment mechanism or the transfer of the remainder of the work program must be approved or not by the minister.

Yunan said the meeting would still be held on December 4 to get an agreement from the Interior Ministry. Meanwhile, SKK Migas and the contractors of the cooperation contract are rolling out the Upstream Oil and Gas Goes to Campus 2017 program. Through this program, SKK Migas and contractors hold public lectures and discussions on current issues of upstream oil and gas industry.

"The program is conducted simultaneously on 42 campuses across the archipelago," said Head of Program and Communication Division of SKK Migas Wisnu Prabawa Taher, Wednesday (29/11).

The program also intends to share information from industry players as well as absorbing ideas from academics. Despite the current low oil prices, the industry still plays a strategic role.

Kontraktor Dukung Pelonggaran Eksplorasi


Kontraktor kontrak kerja sama mendukung rencana pemerintah untuk memperlonggar ketentuan dalam pengalihan atau pengembalian wilayah kerja minyak dan gas bumi ke pemerintah.

Saat ini, pemerintah sedang merevisi Peraturan Pemerintah No. 35/2004 tentang Kegiatan Usaha Hulu Minyak dan Gas Bumi untuk memperlonggar ketentuan pengalihan blok migas.

Berdasarkan beleid itu, kontraktor bisa mengalihkan atau mengembalikan blok migas kepada pemerintah setelah memenuhi seluruh komitmen eksplorasi dan kewajiban lain berdasarkan kontrak kerja sama. 

Direktur Eksekutif Indonesian Petroleum Association (IPA) Marjolijn Wajong mengatakan bahwa pihaknya mendukung rencana pemerintah agar bisa mengalihkan komitmen pasti di wilayah kerja tertentu. Dia berharap agar asosiasi bisa dilibatkan untuk memberikan saran dalam revisi Peraturan Pemerintah No. 35/2004.

Menurutnya, pengalihan pelaksanaan komitmen pasti diharapkan agar dapat dialihkan tidak saja ke wilayah kerja lain, tetapi juga dalam bentuk kegiatan lain atau memiliki nilai yang setara.

Saat ini, kontraktor harus menyelesaikan seluruh komitmen pasti di wilayah kerja tertentu meskipun terdapat hambatan di lapangan. Di sisi lain, kontraktor tidak bisa menyelesaikan komitmen pastinya sehingga kerap kali hanya menunggu hingga masa eksplorasi berakhir.

Berdasarkan Pasal 7 Peraturan Pemerintah No. 35/2004, kontraktor Wajib menyelesaikan seluruh komitmen pasti maupun kegiatan yang telah tertulis dalam kontrak kerja sama sebelum mengembalikan Wilayah Kerjanya kepada pemerintah.

“Pada saat dialihkan bisa fleksibel, sesuai dengan keadaan dan kebutuhan yang ada pada Wilayah Kerja yang menerima pengalihan komitmen pasti, misalnya dari komitmen pasti berbentuk pengeboran sekian sumur, dapat dialihkan menjadi seismik, dengan nilai yang setara atau lebih,” ujarnya, Rabu (29/11).

Komitmen pasti merupakan kegiatan yang akan dilakukan pada masa 3 tahun pertama kegiatan eksplorasi. Sementara itu, untuk 3 tahun berikutnya disebut komitmen kerja. Pada komitmen pasti, kegiatan yang dilakukan yakni Studi geologi dan geofisika, survei seismik dua dimensi dan pengeboran satu sumur eksplorasi.

Dalam revisi Peraturan Pemerintah No. 35/2004 akan diatur tentang pengalihan komitmen investasi pada blok eksplorasi bila kontraktor tidak dapat menyelesaikan komitmen pasti.

Direktur Harmonisasi Peraturan Perundang-Undangan II Kementerian Hukum dan HAM Firman Hilmy mengatakan, dalam perubahan ketiga Peraturan Pemerintah No. 35 / 2004 itu, Kementenan ESDM mengusulkan beberapa poin.

Pertama, tentang program kerja pasti. Kedua, tentang masa kategorisasi data dan kerahasiaannya. Ketiga, tentang penawaran saham partisipasi 10% kepada badan usaha milik daerah (BUMD).

Menurut Yunan, berdasarkan hasil rapat pada 22 November, telah disepakati tentang kerahasiaan data. Selain itu, masih diperlukan uraian mekanisme usulan perubahan atau pengalihan sisa program kerja pasti tersebut mendapat persetujuan atau tidak dari menteri.

Yunan menyebut, rapat masih akan dilakukan pada 4 Desember untuk mendapat kesepakatan dari Kementerian Dalam Negeri. Sementara itu, SKK Migas dan para kontraktor kontrak kerja sama sedang menggelar program Hulu Migas Goes to Campus 2017. Melalui program ini, SKK Migas dan kontraktor menggelar kuliah umum dan diskusi seputar masalah terkini industri hulu migas.

“Program ini dilakukan serentak di 42 kampus di seluruh nusantara,” ujar Kepala Divisi Program dan Komunikasi SKK Migas Wisnu Prabawa Taher, Rabu (29/11).

Program itu juga bermaksud berbagi informasi dari pelaku industri sekaligus menyerap gagasan dari kalangan akademisi. Meskipun saat ini harga minyak sedang rendah, industri ini masih memainkan peran strategis.

“Industri ini tidak hanya menghasilkan penerimaan negara, tetapi menciptakan efek pengganda bagi perekonomian nasional,” ujar Wisnu.

Construction of Tuban Refinery Starts



The construction of a new oil refinery in Tuban, East Java, is about to begin. The two companies, PT Pertamina and Rosneft Oil Company of Russia's oil and gas company, agreed to form a joint venture to build the 300,000 barrel refinery.

In this project, Pertamina is represented by its subsidiary, PT Kilang Pertamina Internasional. Rosneft is represented by its affiliate Petrol Complex PTE. This joint venture company was named PT Pertamina Rosneft Processing and Petrochemicals. A 55 percent stake in the joint venture is owned by Pertamina and 45 percent owned by Rosneft.

"This is an integrated oil processing project. In addition to producing Euro V standard oil fuel, the refinery will also produce petrochemical products, "said Pertamina International Refinery Director Achmad Fathoni, Tuesday (28/11), in Jakarta.

Projected, the type of fuel produced from the Tuban refinery is gasoline 80,000 barrels per day, 99,000 barrels of diesel per day, and avtur 26,000 barrels per day. The new petrochemical products produced are polypropylene 1.3 million tons per year, polyethylene 0.65 million tons per year, 0.5 million tons of styrene per year, and 1,3 million tons of paracilene per year.

"The value of the refinery project in Tuban 15 billion US dollars (approximately Rp 202.5 trillion). During the work will absorb the workforce to 40,000 people and 2,000 people when the refinery operates, "said Achmad.

In addition to the new refinery in Tuban, Pertamina is building a project called the refinery development masterplan program (RDMP). This project is in the form of developing and upgrading the capacity of existing refineries. Refineries included in the RDMP are Balongan refineries in West Java, Cilacap refineries in Central Java, Dumai refineries in Riau and Balikpapan refineries, East Kalimantan.

Pertamina Director of Pertamina Processing and Petrochemical Director Ardhy N Mokobombang, in the exposure of Pertamina's performance in the third quarter of 2017, said the planning of new refineries and RDMP projects should be done carefully. It does not want the implementation of this project pending or arising cost swelling.

"Funding lsu will be a big issue. However, as long as the project is done on a prudent basis, all of it will go on schedule, "Kara Ardhy said when asked about the funding condition of the RDMP project and a new refinery worth Rp 450 trillion.

In addition to Tuban, Pertamina also plans to build a new refinery with a capacity of 300,000 barrels per day in Bontang, East Kalimantan. However, it is believed the refinery development investment is cheaper as it stands on Pertamina's land.

The government is eager to reduce imports of crude oil and fuel oil by building new refineries and increasing the capacity of old refineries. To date, out of the 1.5 million barrels of oil per day consumed, half is imported.

In addition, Indonesia has long not built a refinery despite the need for more fuel from year to year. The last built refinery is Balongan. The refinery began operations in 1994.

To accelerate the construction of refineries, the government issued Presidential Regulation No. 146 of 2015 on the Implementation of Development and Development of Oil Refinery in the Interior. This regulation regulates the scheme of a refinery development, either by business entities or by joint business entities with the government.

Pembangunan Kilang Tuban Dimulai


Pembangunan kilang minyak baru di Tuban, Jawa Timur, segera dimulai. Kedua perusahaan, yakni PT Pertamina dan Rosneft Oil Company perusahaan minyak dan gas asal Rusia, sepakat membentuk perusahaan patungan untuk membangun kilang berkapasitas 300.000 barrel tersebut.

Dalam proyek ini, Pertamina diwakili anak usahanya, PT Kilang Pertamina Internasional. Adapun Rosneft diwakili afiliasi usahanya yang bernama Petrol Complex PTE. Perusahaan patungan yang dibentuk ini  bernama PT Pertamina Rosneft Pengolahan dan Petrokimia. Sebesar 55 persen saham perusahaan patungan ini dimiliki Pertamina dan 45 persen milik Rosneft.

”Ini adalah proyek pengolahan minyak terintegrasi. Selain menghasilkan bahan bakar minyak berstandar Euro V, kilang juga akan menghasilkan produk petrokimia,” kata Direktur Kilang Pertamina Internasional Achmad Fathoni, Selasa (28/11), di Jakarta.

Diproyeksikan, jenis bahan bakar yang dihasilkan dari kilang Tuban adalah gasolin 80.000 barrel per hari, solar 99.000 barrel per hari, dan avtur 26.000 barrel per hari. Adapun produk baru petrokimia yang dihasilkan adalah polipropilen 1,3 juta ton per tahun, polietilen 0,65 juta ton per tahun, stirena 0,5 juta ton per tahun, dan paraksilen 1,3 juta ton per tahun.

”Nilai proyek pembangunan kilang di Tuban 15 miliar dollar AS (sekitar Rp 202,5 triliun). Selama pengerjaan akan menyerap tenaga kerja sampai 40.000 orang dan 2.000 orang saat kilang beroperasi,” ucap Achmad.

Selain kilang baru di Tuban, Pertamina membangun proyek yang dinamai program rencana induk pengembangan kilang (refinery development masterplan program/RDMP). Proyek ini berupa pengembangan dan peningkatan kapasitas kilang-kilang yang sudah ada. Kilang yang masuk dalam RDMP adalah kilang Balongan di Jawa Barat, kilang Cilacap di Jawa Tengah, kilang Dumai di Riau, dan kilang Balikpapan, Kalimantan Timur.

Direktur Megaproyek Pengolahan dan Petrokimia Pertamina Ardhy N Mokobombang, dalam paparan kinerja Pertamina triwulan III-2017, mengatakan, perencanaan pembangunan kilang baru dan proyek RDMP mesti dilakukan dengan hati-hati. Pihaknya tidak mau pelaksanaan proyek ini tertunda atau timbul pembengkakan biaya.

”lsu pendanaan akan menjadi isu besar. Namun, selama proyek dikerjakan dengan prinsip kehati-hatian, semua, akan berjalan sesuai jadwal,” kara Ardhy saat ditanya tentang kondisi pendanaan proyek RDMP dan kilang baru yang nilainya mencapai Rp 450 triliun tersebut.

Selain di Tuban, Pertamina juga berencana membangun kilang baru berkapasitas 300.000 barrel per hari di Bontang, Kalimantan Timur. Namun, diyakini investasi pembangunan kilang itu lebih murah karena berdiri di atas lahan Pertamina.

Pemerintah berambisi mengurangi impor minyak mentah dan bahan bakar minyak dengan pembangunan kilang baru dan peningkatan kapasitas kilang-kilang lama. Sampai hari ini, dari 1,5 juta barrel minyak per hari yang dikonsumsi, separuhnya didatangkan dari impor.

Selain itu, Indonesia memang sudah lama tidak membangun kilang kendati kebutuhan BBM semakin banyak dari tahun ke tahun. Kilang yang terakhir kali dibangun adalah Balongan. Kilang mulai beroperasi pada 1994.

Untuk mempercepat pembangunan kilang, pemerintah mengeluarkan Peraturan Presiden Nomor 146 Tahun 2015 tentang Pelaksanaan Pembangunan dan Pengembangan Kilang Minyak di Dalam Negeri. Peraturan ini mengatur skema pembangunan kilang, baik oleh badan usaha maupun kerja sama badan usaha dengan pemerintah.
