PLN is Committed to Maintaining Electricity Supply and Reliability of the Rokan Block

    PT Perusahaan Listrik Negara (PLN) ensures the reliability of electricity supply for the Rokan Block Working Area (WK), as tangible evidence of supporting the sustainability of the oil and gas block which supports 25 percent of the total national oil production. This step is PLN's effort to maintain energy security in Indonesia.

    PLN has officially started supplying electricity and steam to the Rokan WK starting August 9, 2021, at 00.00 WIB. This is in line with the transfer of management of the Rokan Block from an oil and gas company from the United States, PT Chevron Pacific Indonesia to PT Pertamina Hulu Rokan (PHR). This is an important milestone for Indonesia. Because since 1951 has been managed by Chevron, finally the largest oil and gas block in Indonesia has returned to Indonesia.

"For PLN, this is proof that we are able to manage power plants to meet electricity needs in large-scale oil and gas working areas, such as the Rokan Block," said PLN President Director Zulkifli Zaini.

The Rokan Block Chevron

    To ensure the supply of electricity and steam in the operation of the Rokan WK, PLN and PHR have agreed and signed the Electricity and Steam Sales and Purchase Agreement (PJBTLU) on February 1, 2021. In serving the electricity and steam needs of the Rokan WK, PLN plans 2 stages, namely the transition period and the permanent period.

PT Perusahaan Listrik Negara (PLN)

    During the transition period, PLN utilizes existing power plants which will last for 3 years. PLN itself has acquired shares in the existing power plant that has been electrifying WK ​​Rokan, namely PLTG North Duri Cogen 300 MW, and is supported by PLTG Minas and Central Duri of 130 MW.

"In the short term, we will use electricity from the generator, which has been supplying electricity to Rokan for the past three years, while for the past three years we have prepared the electricity network to connect the Rokan WK with the Sumatra electricity system," said Zulkifli.

    In the second phase, the permanent service period will rely on PLN's generators and network starting in 2024. PLN will interconnect the Rokan Block system with the Sumatran electricity system, with a capacity of 400 megawatts (MW).

"PLN will also take from the Sumatra system, which has a very large availability of power and systems, starting from supply from systems in the south and north through the 275 KV system and will be 500 KV," said Zulkifli.

Pertamina Hulu Rokan's (PHR)

    In addition, PLN ensures that the supply of reliable electricity from the Sumatra System to the Rokan Block is carried out from three sources. PLN also expressed its gratitude for Pertamina Hulu Rokan's (PHR) trust in meeting the electricity needs of WK Rokan.

"With this synergy, it shows that the sons and daughters of Indonesia can manage the largest oil-producing block in Indonesia," said Zulkifli.
