Lifting Block Rokan 2019 Exceeds Target

PT Chevron Pacific Indonesia (CPI) revealed, the realization of the Rokan Block oil lifting in 2019 exceeded the Work Plan and Budget (WP&B) targets agreed with the Special Task Force for Upstream Oil and Gas Business Activities (SKK Migas).

The realization of oil lifting in the Rokan Block reached 190 thousand barrels per day (BPD). While the oil lifting target in WP&B 2019 is set at 185,300 BPD.

CPI President Director Albert Simanjuntak said the lifting realization came from reparations or well services by utilizing new technology so that production in the Rokan block could still be optimal.

"In 2019, we will focus on doing workovers by using digital technology, which is choosing well candidates to work on and minimizing our downtime. We are very grateful that the approach taken by Alhamdulillah was able to exceed the plan approved by 102.5% of WPNB, "Albert said in a Hearing Meeting with the House of Representatives Commission VII in Jakarta.

Albert revealed that throughout 2019 yesterday there was no drilling. Because the CPI contract will expire soon on August 8, 2021. He said the last drilling was done in 2018 and then there were 89 wells.

With the expiration of the contract in 2021, drilling in Rokan will no longer be economical. After more than 50 years of managing the Rokan Block, CPI has drilled more than 100 oil and gas fields in the Rokan Block.

He said without drilling investment, this year's WPNB lifting target is lower than 2019 yesterday. Optimization of well injection is done to prevent a too drastic reduction in production.

"We did not drill, the investment return time was not enough, the WP&B 2020 target was 161 thousand BPD," he said.

Meanwhile, Member of Commission VII of the House of Representatives (DPR) Maman Abdurrahman asked for an explanation of the transition period for the management of the Rokan Block from CPI to Pertamina. He highlighted efforts made so that production does not drop dramatically during the transition period and when Pertamina takes over in 2021.

"How to maintain production. Who is drilling? Chevron issued the funds first or what? I'm sure Chevron doesn't want to spend money, "he said.

Albert said that he had coordinated with SKK Migas and Pertamina regarding the transition period since 2019 yesterday. He said there were three options, namely CPI which funded and conducted drilling. The second option is Pertamina to fund and drill. While the last option is funding from Pertamina and CPI that are drilling. But until now the discussion is still ongoing because the Rokan Block uses a cost recovery contract scheme.

"Our reputation in the future keeps Rokan production from dropping. We are interested in cooperation with the government and Pertamina so that the drop is prevented from going too far, "he said.

Albert further revealed that CPI suffered a loss of Rp 23 billion during 2019 due to oil theft. The theft mode is carried out by making underground tunnels (tunnels) connected to oil distribution pipes. This mode is commonly known as illegal tapping. During 2019 yesterday there were 72 illegal tapping cases. Of these 55 cases were intervened successfully. The meaning of illegal tapping has not succeeded in stealing oil.

"Our losses are in the form of stolen oil, repairing holes in the holes and cleaning up oil spills," he said.

Albert said that his side had collaborated with the TNI-Polri in preventing oil theft activities. He explained that cooperation with the security forces had been going on all this time and was being renewed every year.

"We made a cooperative agreement with the TNI-Polri because illegal tapping is becoming more sophisticated," he said.

Cepu Block Environmental Impact Analysis

Meanwhile, the House of Representatives Commission VII also highlighted the problem of Environmental Impact Analysis (EIA) in the Cepu Block, Central Java. The Amdal permit has not yet been issued by the Bojonegoro Regency Government.

     However, the management of Exxon Mobile Cepu Limited has yet to disclose issues related to the slow licensing process. This was raised in the DPR Commission VII Hearing Meeting with 10 Cooperation Contract Contractors (K3S).

Chairperson of DPR's Commission VII Chairperson of DPR's Commission VII Sugeng Suparwoto said the Cepu Block has a unique character because it continues to be able to increase proven reserves. Even now the Cepu Block is the national oil lifting platform.

"Uniquely the Cepu Block, from the Dutch Age has only just been met by continuously increasing its proven reserve to 900 million barrels, which is extraordinary," Sugeng said in Jakarta.

Exxon Mobil's Senior Vice President Cepu Muhammad Nurdin explained, the EIA problem was still coordinated with the Special Task Force for Upstream Oil and Gas Business Activities (SKK Migas). He was reluctant to expose the problems that made the permit process uncertain. It only explains that they have fulfilled the requirements needed in the submission of an EIA.

"High rate tests have been carried out and submitted as revised EIA documents," he said.

Muhammad explained that the Amdal revision was carried out because the factory's capacity had increased to 235 thousand barrels per day (BPD). In the previous Amdal, the production capacity was only 220 thousand BPD.

He emphasized that capacity building was based on a series of tests. Even the Environmental Impact Assessment documents have been attached aspects of the environment and emissions. During the meeting, Muhammad revealed that the increase in reserves proved to be more than double from before. The proven reserve reaches 940 million barrels. While previously in the Plan of Development (POD) revealed oil and gas reserves of 325 million barrels.

"This means that the peak field will be longer than the Banyu Urip field prediction during the PoD first," he said.

ESDM Minister Arifin Tasrif

The slow EIA of the Cepu Block has also been known by the Minister of Energy and Mineral Resources (ESDM) Arifin Tasrif. He immediately communicated with the Bojonegoro Regional Government.

"We hope that this EIA will be issued soon. For this reason, we will communicate with the local government, "he said last weekend.

Arifin said that the Cepu Block has an important role in increasing national oil lifting production. Moreover, President Joko Widodo has assigned to boost national oil and gas lifting production. Therefore the EIA approval process is a door for hoisting the national oil lifting production. 

     Because the Cepu Block accounts for 30% of the national lifting. The point is this, how can we increase the lifting from the current one to go up a little more. To ride it does have to change the EIA again. So indeed for this EIA issue, we are asking the regions to be flexible, "he said.


Lifting Blok Rokan 2019 Lampaui Target

PT Chevron Pacific Indonesia (CPI) mengungkapkan, realisasi lifting minyak Blok Rokan di 2019 melampaui target Work Plan and Budget (WP&B) yang disepakati bersama Satuan Kerja Khusus Pelaksana Kegiatan Usaha Hulu Minyak dan Gas Bumi (SKK Migas). 

Adapun realisasi lifting minyak di Blok Rokan mencapai 190 ribu barel per hari (bph). Sementara target lifting minyak dalam WP&B 2019 ditetapkan sebesar 185.300 bph. 

Presiden Direktur CPI Albert Simanjuntak mengatakan realisasi lifting itu berasal dari reparasi atau well service dengan memanfaatkan teknologi baru sehingga produksi di blok Rokan tetap bisa optimal.

“2019 kami fokus lakukan workover dengan gunakan digital teknologi yaitu memilih kandidat-kandidat sumur yang dikerjakan dan meminimalisir downtime kita. Kami sangat bersyukur pendekatan yang dilakukan Alhamdulillah mampu melampaui rencana yang disetujui 102,5% dari WPNB,” kata Albert dalam Rapat Dengar Pendapat dengan Komisi VII DPR di Jakarta.

Albert mengungkapkan sepanjang 2019 kemarin tidak melakukan pengeboran. Pasalnya kontrak CPI segera berakhir pada 8 Agustus 2021 mendatang. Dia menuturkan pengeboran terakhir kali dilakukan pada 2018 lalu sebanyak 89 sumur. 

Dengan berakhirnya kontrak pada 2021 mendatang maka pengeboran di Rokan dinilai tidak lagi ekonomis. Setelah lebih dari 50 tahun mengelola Blok Rokan, CPI telah mengebor lebih dari 100 lapangan minyak dan gas di Blok Rokan. 

Dikatakannya tanpa investasi pengeboran membuat target lifting WPNB di tahun ini lebih rendah dibandingkan 2019 kemarin. Optimalisasi injeksi sumur dilakukan untuk mencegah penurunan produksi terlalu drastis.

“Kami tidak melakukan pengeboran, waktu pengembalian investasi tidak cukup, target WP&B 2020 sebesar 161 ribu bph,” ujarnya.

Sementara itu Anggota Komisi VII Dewan Perwakilan Rakyat (DPR) Maman Abdurrahman meminta penjelasan mengenai masa transisi pengelolaan Blok Rokan dari CPI ke Pertamina. Dia menyoroti upaya yang dilakukan agar produksi tidak turun drastis selama masa transisi serta ketika Pertamina mengambil alih di 2021 nanti.

“Bagaimana menjaga produksi. Siapa yang mengebor? Chevron mengeluarkan dana dulu atau bagaimana? Saya yakin Chevron tidak mau mengeluarkan duit,” ujarnya.

Albert menuturkan pihaknya berkoordinasi dengan SKK Migas dan Pertamina terkait masa transisi sejak 2019 kemarin. Dia menyebut ada tiga opsi yakni CPI yang mendanai serta melakukan pengeboran. Opsi kedua Pertamina yang mendanai serta melakukan pengeboran. Sedangkan opsi terakhir yakni dana dari Pertamina dan CPI yang mengebor. Namun hingga kini masih terus dilakukan pembahasan lantaran Blok Rokan menggunakan skema kontrak cost recovery.

“Reputasi kita ke depan menjaga agar produksi Rokan jangan sampai drop. Kami berkepentingan kerjasama degan pemerintah dan Pertamina sehingga drop dicegah jangan terlalu jauh,” ujarnya.

Lebih lanjut Albert mengungkapkan CPI mengalami kerugian mencapai Rp 23 miliar sepanjang 2019 lalu akibat aksi pencurian minyak. Modus pencurian dilakukan dengan cara membuat terowongan bawah tanah (tunnel) yang terhubung dengan pipa distribusi minyak. Modus ini biasa dikenal dengan ilegal tapping. Sepanjang 2019 kemarin tercatat 72 kasus ilegal tapping. Dari jumlah tersebut 55 kasus diantaranya berhasil diintervensi. Artianya pelaku ilegal tapping belum berhasil mencuri minyak.

“Kerugian kami berupa minyak yang dicuri, memperbaiki pipa yang dilubangi serta membersihkan tumpahan minyak, ujarnya.

Albert menuturkan pihaknya menjalin kerjasama dengan TNI-Polri dalam mencegah kegiatan pencurian minyak. Dia menjelaskan kerjasama dengan aparat keamanan itu sudah berlangsung selama ini dan terus diperbaharui setiap tahunnya.

“Perjanjian kerjasama kami lakukan dengan TNI-Polri karena pelaku ilegal tapping makin canggih,” tuturnya.

Analisis Dampak Lingkungan Blok Cepu

Sementara itu, Komisi VII DPR RI juga menyoroti permasalahan Analisis Mengenai Dampak Lingkungan (Amdal) di Blok Cepu, Jawa Tengah. Izin Amdal itu hingga kini belum diterbitkan oleh Pemerintah Kabupaten Bojonegoro. 

     Namun jajaran Manajemen Exxon Mobile Cepu Limited belum mau membeberkan permasalahan terkait lambannya proses perizinan. Hal ini mengemuka dalam Rapat Dengar Pendapat Komisi VII DPR dengan 10 Kontraktor Kontrak Kerja Sama (K3S).

Ketua Komisi VII DPR Ketua Komisi VII DPR Sugeng Suparwoto mengatakan Blok Cepu memiliki karakter unik lantaran terus mampu meningkatkan cadangan terbukti. Bahkan saat ini Blok Cepu menjadi tumpuan lifting minyak nasional.

“Unik Blok Cepu, dari Jaman Belanda baru saja  ketemu dengan terus menerus naik proven reserve menjadi 900 juta barel, luar biasa,” kata Sugeng di Jakarta.

Senior Vice President Exxon Mobil Cepu Muhammad Nurdin menerangkan, permasalahan Amdal masih dikoordinasikan dengan Satuan Kerja Khusus Pelaksana Kegiatan Usaha Hulu Minyak dan Gas Bumi (SKK Migas). Dia enggan membeberkan permasalahan yang membuat proses perizinan terkatung-katung. Hanya menjelaskan telah memenuhi persyaratan yang dibutuhkan dalam pengajuan Amdal.

“ Sudah dilakukan high rate test dan diajukan sebagai dokumen Amdal revisi,” ujarnya.

Muhammad menerangkan revisi Amdal dilakukan lantaran kapasitas pabrik meningkat menjadi 235 ribu barel per hari (bph). Dalam Amdal sebelumnya kapasitas produksi hanya sebesar 220 ribu bph. 

Dia menegaskan peningkatan kapasitas itu berdasarkan serangkaian pengujian. Bahkan dalam dokumen Amdal pun telah dilampirkan aspek lingkungan dan emisi. Dalam rapat tersebut Muhammad mengungkapkan peningkatan cadangan terbukti lebih dari dua kali lipat dari sebelumnya. Cadangan terbukti itu mencapai 940 juta barel. Sementara sebelumnya dalam Plan Of Development (POD) terungkap cadangan migas sebesar 325 juta barel.

“Ini artinya peak lapangan akan lebih lama dari prediksi lapangan Banyu Urip saat PoD dulu,” ujarnya.

Lambannya Amdal Blok Cepu sudah diketahui juga oleh Menteri Energi dan Sumber Daya Mineral (ESDM) Arifin Tasrif. Pihaknya segera berkomunikasi dengan Pemerintah Daerah Bojonegoro.

“Kami harapkan Amdal ini segera dikeluarkan. Untuk itu kami akan melakukan komunikasi dengan Pemda,” ujarnya akhir pekan lalu.

Arifin menuturkan Blok Cepu memiliki peran penting dalam peningkatan produksi lifting minyak nasional. Apalagi Presiden Joko Widodo menugaskan untuk menggenjot produksi lifting migas nasional. Oleh sebab itu proses persetujuan Amdal menjadi pintu untuk mengerek produksi lifting minyak nasional. Pasalnya Blok Cepu menyumbang 30% dari lifting nasional. 

    Intinya kan ini bagaimana kita bisa meningkatkan lifting dari yang sekarang ada untuk naik sedikit lagi. Untuk naik itu memang harus merubah lagi Amdal. Jadi memang untuk isu Amdal ini, kita sedang minta daerah untuk bisa fleksibilitas,” tuturnya.
