East Java Potentially Excess Gas Supply

    The Special Task Force for Upstream Oil and Gas Business Activities (SKK Migas) stated that East Java will have an excess gas supply of up to 200 million standard cubic feet per day / MMscfd in 2022-2025. This is after the completion of a number of gas projects in the region at the end of this year.

    Deputy of Finance and Monetization of SKK Migas, Arief S Handoko, said that at least three oil and gas projects in East Java will be completed by the end of this year, namely the Jambaran-Tiung Biru (JTB) Project, Sidayu and Bukit Tua Phase 2B owned by Petronas

    The three of them will increase the gas supply in East Java. With this potential gas supply, SKK Migas hopes that the gas user industry can optimize business deals fairly and stick to the provisions in the Minister of Energy and Mineral Resources Regulation Number 8 of 2020 and Minister of Energy and Mineral Resources Decree Number 89 of 2020 which regulates gas prices for certain industries.

"While gas prices from upstream are very economical, we hope that the government can encourage the growth of the gas user industry in East Java and Central Java so that this gas potential can be purchased so that it can drive the regional economy and create a bigger multiplier effect," said Arief.

    Referring to SKK Migas data, the additional supply from the JambaranTiung Biru, Sidayu, and Bukit Tua Phase 2B projects is estimated at 226.2 MMscfd. The Jambaran-Tiung Biru Field Unitization Project undertaken by PT Pertamina EP Cepu (PEPC) will produce gas up to 192 MMscfd.

    Meanwhile, the additional supply from the Sidayu Project is 4.2 MMscfd for gas and 7 thousand barrels per day (bpd) for oil, and Bukit Tua Phase 2B 30 MMscfd for gas and 12,500 bpd for oil.

"The largest additional supply will be obtained from the JTB Project which we estimate will be on stream in the fourth quarter of 2021. This project can supply gas amounting to 192 MMscfd, which will be supplied not only to East Java but also to Central Java, "said Arief.

    He explained that the Jambaran-Tiung Biru Project, which was included in the list of National Strategic Projects (PSN), was scheduled to start production last year. However, the Covid-19 pandemic last year caused delays in completing this project this year. Apart from the three projects, previously there was a West Pangkah Project operating.

"At the beginning of the year there was also the West Pangkah Petronas Project which increased gas supply from the Pangkah Block, so it can be said that the amount of gas supply in East Java for 2021 will be fulfilled," he explained.

    The West Pangkah project produced 23 MMscfd of gas and 2,200 bpd of oil. To increase the utilization of this gas supply, Arief continued, his party is also encouraging the completion of the Cirebon-Semarang pipeline in order to develop the gas market in Central Java. The reason is, currently, a Gresik-Semarang pipeline has been built that can carry gas from East Java to Central Java.

"In the future, we hope that the Cirebon-Semarang transmission pipeline can be built, so that with this gas pipeline, the excess gas supply in East Java will be channeled to support the fulfillment of gas needs for industries in Central Java," said Arief.

    In fact, referring to the Gas Balance, which was compiled in 2018, East Java is one of the areas projected to have a gas supply deficit. This projection refers to the second scenario in the balance sheet which estimates gas demand based on the previous year's consumption realization and economic growth targets. The gas deficit of 563.23 MMscfd in East Java-based on this scenario will occur in 2027.
