Instead of Manage Challenging Rokan Blocks

    The transfer of management of the Rokan Block from PT Chevron Pacific Indonesia to PT Pertamina (Persero) left a problem with the electricity supply. With crude oil production of 160,000 barrels per day, the Rokan Block requires an electricity supply of up to 400 megawatts and steam of 335,000 standard barrels per day. It is feared that the problem will affect oil production when the block in Riau was managed by Pertamina.

    According to Fatar Yani Abdurrahman, Deputy Head of the Special Task Force for Upstream Oil and Gas Business Activities (SKK Migas), the electricity supply in the Rokan Block is the backbone of the block's production operations. 

    So far, the supply of electricity and steam has been managed by PT Mandau Cipta Tenaga Nusantara (MCTN), which has a contract with Chevron. The company operates a Gas and Steam Power Plant (PLTGU) with a capacity of 300 MW.

"SKK Migas knows that the plant is being tendered and sold to the highest bidder. We have also discussed with Chevron that the most reliable electricity manager in Indonesia is only PT Perusahaan Listrik Negara (Persero). We'll just wait for the solution, "said Fatar in the webinar" Safeguarding State Assets and Sustainability of Electricity Supply in the Rokan Block ".

    The PLTGU in the Rokan Block has become a polemic, regarding its status as a state asset or not a state asset, in a cooperation contract scheme based on cost recovery.

    John Simamora, Director of Strategic Planning and Business Development at PT Pertamina Hulu Energi (PHE), said that his party had agreed to hand over the electricity supply in the Rokan Block to PLN.

    However, if PLN is not ready to supply electricity until the limit of handing over management of the Rokan Block to Pertamina, another option is to extend the power supply contract with MCTN.

    Executive Vice President of Corporate Communications and PLN CSR Agung Murdifi, through an official statement, stated that PLN is very ready to meet the electricity needs of the Rokan Block. The Sumatra electricity system has a power reserve of 2,800 MW.
