Upstream Oil and Gas Investment is US $ 873.2 Million


    The Special Task Force for Upstream Oil and Gas Business Activities (SKK Migas) said the realization of upstream oil and gas investment in January 2021 was positive. Investment realization last month was recorded at the US $ 873.2 million or 7.05 percent of the investment target of US $ 12.38 billion this year. 

    Acting Head of Program and Communication Division of SKK Migas Susana Kurniasih revealed that the realization of this investment was higher than the investment achievement in the same period in 2020 which amounted to the US $ 767.5 million or 5.55% of the annual target.

    Meanwhile, investment realization throughout January 2021 was used to support exploration activities, including by Pertamina EP, Pertamina Hulu Mahakam, ENI East Sepinggan, Pertamina Hulu East Kalimantan, and PHE OSES. In addition, this investment is also used to finance development activities. 

    Primarily, the drilling of development wells, such as carried out by Pertamina Hulu Mahakam, Pertamina Hulu Sanga-Sanga, PHE ONWJ, ENI East Sepinggan, Pertamina EP, Petronas Carigali Ketapang IIExxon Mobile Cepu Ltd (EMCL) and, BP Tanguh.

    Since discussing work, program, and budget (WP&B), SKK Migas claims to continue to coordinate with Cooperation Contract Contractors (KKKS), by conducting supervision and assistance with work program plans that have been approved in WP&B 2021. SKK Migas sees, accelerating the implementation of work programs in KKKS by endeavoring to complete the supporting documents for this year's program implementation has shown good results.

"So, the investment realization in January 2021 is higher in number and percentage compared to the same period last year, said Susana.

    SKK Migas and KKKS have also completed the 2021 procurement list at the end of 2020 and are also considered to have a positive impact on efforts to accelerate the process of procuring goods and services this year. 

    In addition, the highest number of procurement packages was in January 2021. As a result, KKKS will have a longer time to carry out operations for upstream oil and gas management. Susana explained, efforts to oversee upstream oil and gas investment were continuously carried out from various aspects, including licensing and procurement of goods and services. SKK Migas hopes that the absence of obstacles in the procurement process will contribute to optimal investment absorption.

    Indeed, investment requires support from various related agencies. On that basis, SKK Migas continues to carry out intensive coordination including with the Investment Coordinating Board (BKPM) so that the 2021 work program can be carried out according to the target. 

    SKK Migas is also optimistic that investment realization in 2021 will be better than in 2020. This is in line with the continuing improvement in world oil prices and optimism among business players towards the prevention of Covid-19.

"As well as the implementation of massive vaccinations in various countries including Indonesia, the upstream oil and gas business climate this year will be much better than in 2020," said Susana.

    The improved investment realization also had an impact on the smooth running of upstream oil and gas projects. Of the 12 onstream upstream oil and gas project targets, in January 2021 there were two onstream projects, namely the KLD ONWJ project with an investment value of US $ 34 million and the gas supply project to Pertamina Refinery Unit 5 Balikpapan with an investment value of US $ 27 million.

"In February 2021, the West Pangkah project is planned to be onstream with an investment of US $ 46 million," concluded Susana.
