Rokan Block PLTGU Auction Must Have Government Permission

    The Ministry of Finance through the Directorate General of State Assets (DJKN) emphasized that the Cogen PLTGU tender in the Rokan Block must obtain a permit. Therefore, the Ministry of Finance has sent a letter to the Minister of Energy and Mineral Resources regarding the tender.

    Director of State Receivables and Other State Assets (PNKL), Lukman Effendi said the letter had also been sent to PT Mandau Cipta Tenaga Nusantara (MCTN) as the owner of the Steam Power Plant (PLTGU) and PT Chevron Pacific Indonesia (CPI). Lukman reminded every action on land assets included in State Property (BMN) must obtain government approval.

“This letter is addressed to the Minister of Energy and Mineral Resources, MCTN, and PT. Chevron Pacific Indonesia (CPI). We'll just say that first, we'll see the response. Of course, the parties should pay attention to the letter," Lukman said in a virtual press conference.

    The move to send the letter was done not because the Rokan Block electricity generator tender process was being discussed, but as a general effort to control State Property (BMN) assets. Actually, the return of upstream oil and gas State Property (BMN) must be done no later than two years before the end of the contract period. 

    However, this regulation has only just come into existence after the issuance of regulation PMK 140 of 2020 concerning the reform of the management of upstream oil and gas State Property (BMN). Thus, the return of State Property (BMN) to the Rokan Block is not carried out by referring to the new regulation.

"In the future, we want to be orderly, because this is a product of the past, and I have not received comprehensive data regarding the tender for this power plant. I have tried to get the data but have not been able to," said Lukman.

    In fact, his party has not received any official notification regarding the current tender process. PLN Deputy President Director Darmawan Prasodjo revealed that currently, his party is still following the ongoing Ielang process for the Rokan PLTGU.

"We understand that this meeting point must be found, this is ongoing. There is still 3 months and of course, this meeting point can be reached within 1 month," said Darmawan.

    Meanwhile, the Head of the Special Task Force for Upstream Oil and Gas Business Activities (SKK Migas) Dwi Soetjipto revealed that the progress of preparing for the transfer of power plant management has now reached 80 percent.

"PLN will supply electricity and steam to the Rokan Block Oil and Gas Working Area. The maintenance program and business processes have been submitted," he said.

    Dwi added that currently, the Auction process is still waiting for the announcement stage by MCTN, which is the Rokan Block electricity supplier where the majority of its shares are owned by Chevron Standard Limited (CSL).

Trillions of Rokan Assets

    Lukman Effendi revealed that the Rokan Block BMN was recorded at Rp 97.78 trillion. This amount is equivalent to 20% of the total value of the National Cooperation Contract Contractors (KKKS) BMN which as of 2019 reached Rp 497.62 trillion.

"The value is Rp 97.78 trillion, 20 percent of the total value of the national KKKS BMN, be it land, inventory assets, and modal assets," said Lukman.

    Preparations for the transfer of management of the Rokan Block for administrative and physical examination of BMN are still ongoing. Currently, land assets still reach 10% of the total area of ​​62,000 hectares.

"10% of what we have done physical checks, everything should have been done but it's a pandemic, February has entered a pandemic, this is ongoing, the important thing is physical and administrative checks. Documents continue, physical checks can be done as well," said Lukman.

    Meanwhile, for capital assets as of April 2021, the progress has reached 83%. It is hoped that it will be completed by the end of this month. Meanwhile, the inventory of assets has now reached 60% and is believed to be completed in the near future.
