Rokan Block Production Targeted to Reach 400 Thousand BPD

    The Special Task Force for Upstream Oil and Gas Business Activities (SKK Migas) targets the Rokan Block oil production under PT Pertamina Hulu Rokan (PHR) to reach 400 thousand barrels per day (BPD) by 2030. This oil and gas block will support around 40% of the national oil production target of 1 million BPD in the same year.

    Secretary of SKK Migas Taslim Z Yunus said that before transferring the Rokan Block, Pertamina had conducted a study of the oil and gas block and submitted a work program proposal to the government. This proposal then made Pertamina chosen to be the manager of the Rokan Block after the contract was completed on August 9, 2021.

    His party and PHR already have a long-term strategy to optimize the production of the Rokan Block. With the transfer of management running smoothly, one thing that must be ensured in the future is that the work program is realized.

"In the end, how can production be increased from 165,000 to 400,000 BPD by the end of 2030," he said in the Energy Corner of CNBC TV Indonesia.

    For the short term, the mapping will be carried out for the production target that has been set for an average of around 165 thousand BPD. Furthermore, in the medium term, the strategy is to increase oil production and investment significantly. 

    Some of the projects that will be worked on are the monetization of the potential in the Telisa formation, optimization of production by injection of water (waterflood) and steam flood, as well as Enhanced Oil Recovery (EOR) by injection of surfactant in Minas Field in 2024-2025.

“For the long term, full-scale EOR chemical [implementation] for other fields, undeveloped and exploration monetization, and non-conventional oil and gas potential monetization. This is what is interesting to develop in the Rokan Block,” said Taslim.

    These programs are in accordance with the definite work commitments (KKP) promised by Pertamina worth US$ 500 million or around Rp. 7.2 trillion. Some of the activities that will be funded by this KKP are an EOR study worth US$ 4 million, drilling 11 exploration wells at US$ 69.8 million, drilling five Telisa wells at US$ 18.1 million, stage-1 CEOR 7 pattern US$ 247 million, and stage-1 steam flood Kulin or Rantau Bais US$ 88.6 million.

    From the aspect of drilling development wells, he said it would continue to rise in the future. This year, Pertamina will drill a total of 161 wells. Next year, the number of wells drilled will increase to 500 wells. In the following years, the number of wells drilling will be maintained depending on the evaluation results of several oil and gas fields in the Rokan Block.

    Previously, Pertamina President Director Nicke Widyawati said that she had prepared a budget of up to US$ 2 billion for investment in the Rokan Block until 2025. This budget will be used to fund planned programs, including EOR projects and the development of unconventional oil and gas potential.

Support 40%

    Director-General of Oil and Gas at the Ministry of Energy and Mineral Resources (ESDM) Tutuka Ariadji emphasized that the Rokan Block has a significant contribution to achieving the national oil production target of 1 million BPD in 2030.

    Currently, the contribution of oil and gas block production is estimated to reach 24-24 30%. However, this contribution will increase with the development of unconventional oil and gas potential and untapped resources, as well as EOR projects.

"The hope is that from the initial target, the contribution will be even greater," said Tutuka.

    If the 400 thousand BPD oil production target is realized by the end of 2030, Taslim added, the Rokan Block will contribute up to 40% of the 1 million BPD target.

"Therefore, we hope that the projects that have been proposed by Pertamina can be implemented and there are no licensing barriers," he said.

    Along with the increase in oil production, Tutuka also hopes that the contribution of the Rokan Block to state revenues will increase. In recent years, it is acknowledged that the contribution of state revenues from this oil and gas block has continued to decline due to various things, one of which is the Covid-19 pandemic. In fact, in 2016-2018, its contribution continued to rise.
