Accelerating EOR Implementation, Oil and Gas Companies are Encouraged to Partner

    Minister of Energy and Mineral Resources (ESDM) Arifin Tasrif encourages oil and gas companies to cooperate with other parties to realize advanced oil recovery (EOR) activities. The implementation of this activity is one way to achieve the oil production target of 1 million barrels per day (BPD) in 2030.

    Arifin said that accelerating the implementation of advanced production, both secondary and tertiary recovery, needs to be done to achieve the oil production target of 1 million bpd and gas 12 Billion Standard Cubic Feet Per Day/BSCFD by 2030. This acceleration is expected to provide additional contributions to national oil production. For this reason, cooperation contract contractors (KKKS) are encouraged to partner with other parties so that the EOR project can be started immediately.

“To realize the goals in 2030, several EOR projects must be planned and carried out immediately. The government also encourages KKKS to establish strategic cooperation with other parties who have competence and experience in the development and implementation of EOR," said Arifin.

    Head of the Special Task Force for Upstream Oil and Gas Business Activities (SKK Migas) Dwi Soetjipto said that there were 23 EOR projects scheduled to operate in stages until 2030. Regarding the progress of the EOR implementation, 23 fields are still in the study stage. Meanwhile, one field is working on a field trial and one field is in the process of discussing a development plan (POD).

    Of the 23 EOR projects, most of them are Pertamina Group projects. In detail, PT Pertamina Hulu Rokan will run 7 EOR projects, PT Pertamina EP 2 projects, PT Pertamina Ogan Komering 2 projects, PT Pertamina Hulu Energi North West Java (ONWJ) 2 projects, PT Pertamina Hulu Offshore South East Sumatra (OSES) 2 projects, PT Pertamina Hulu Energi Siak 1 project, PT Pertamina Hulu Mahakam 1 project, and PT Pertamina Hulu Energi Tuban 1 project.

    In addition, BOB Bumi Siak Pusako will work on 1 EOR project, PT Energi Mega Persada (EMP) 1 project, Medco E&P Indonesia 1 project, and Petrogas 1 project. Referring to SKK Migas data, the full scale implementation schedule for these EOR projects is Minas and Batang in 2024, Bekasap and E-main in 2025, Zulu in 2026, Tanjung, Rama, and Handil in 2027, Pedada, Sukowati, Gemah, Melibur, and Walio in 2028, Duri Ring, Bekasap, Kulin, Balam South, Bangko, and Kaji Hopefully in 2029, and Air Serdang, Guruh, Krisna, and Mudi in 2030.

    Previously, SKK Migas Deputy Operations Julius Wiratno said that his party together with Pertamina were finalizing the POD of EOR implementation in the Rokan Block. One of them is the implementation of surfactant EOR in Minas Field, Rokan Block. The POD is targeted to be approved this year as well. If successful, this step is expected to contribute to the production of the Rokan Block in 2023-2024.

Transfer Manage

    Arifin also revealed the importance of proper and effective management transfer of terminated oil and gas blocks in maintaining national oil and gas production this year, which will also have an impact on the 2030 target. For this reason, Arifin reminded SKK Migas to continue to oversee the transfer of management of the Rokan Block from PT Chevron Pacific Indonesia ( CPI) to PT Pertamina Hulu Rokan (PHR) on 8 August.

"To maintain the level of national oil and gas production, I have a special message that the transfer of management of the Rokan Block is properly guarded so that the transfer of management process can take place smoothly without disturbing the level of oil production in this block," said Arifin.

    He admitted that this year was very challenging for the upstream oil and gas industry. The realization of oil lifting to date is still at 666.6 thousand BPD and gas at 5,430 million standard cubic feet per day/MMscfd. Meanwhile, the target of the State Revenue and Expenditure Budget is 705 thousand BPD for oil lifting and 5,638 MMScfd for gas.

"2021 will be a year of proving the resilience of the upstream oil and gas industry to maintain production," he said.

    Julius had said that his party was optimistic that oil production in the Rokan Block could rise again despite the transfer of management. The reason is, even now, there are indications of an increase in production by carrying out massive Wells drilling during the operatorship transition period. Next year, the production of this block is expected to return to the level of 175-180 thousand BPD.

    The implementation of Wells drilling is one of the nine issues monitored by SKK Migas in the transfer of management of the Rokan Block. Until now, the realization of drilling development wells in the Rokan Block has reached 83 wells from the target of 180 wells this year. Furthermore, the realization of rework (workover) wells as many as 40 wells from the target of 39 wells, and well services (well services) 5,135 activities out of a target of 6,819 activities.
