ConocoPhilips is Ready to Discuss Gas Supply to Singapore



The Ministry of Energy and Mineral Resources (ESDM) will stop the flow of gas to Singapore starting in 2023. Gas that normally flows to Singapore will be diverted entirely to domestic, especially in Sumatra.

The supply of natural gas that has been entering Singapore from the Suban Corridor Block is being worked on by ConocoPhillips. Later, gas from Sumatra can also be supplied to Java through the Gresik-Semarang-Cirebon-Jakarta pipeline. 


    So that there is equitable distribution of domestic gas utilization throughout Indonesia. ConocoPhillips Vice President Commercial and Business Development Taufik Ahmad admitted, ConocoPhillips needed to discuss in order to ascertain the government's plan.

"Later, we want to try to clarify, first discuss the context," said Taufik.

In accordance with the applicable gas sale and purchase agreement, the contract between Conoco and Singapore will expire in 2023. Unfortunately, Taufik does not know the volume of gas currently being distributed. What is clear, ConocoPhillips is not yet looking for potential buyers in the country.

Taufik said, they will discuss in advance with the Ministry of Energy and Mineral Resources about the plan to stop the gas supply to Singapore, even though the contract period is still long. In this company's record, domestic gas purchases are classified as high reaching 80%.

"Exports are already small, not up to 20%," said Taufik.

ConocoPhilips Siap Diskusi Pasokan Gas Ke Singapura


Kementerian Energi dan Sumber Daya Mineral (ESDM) akan menghentikan aliran gas ke Singapura mulai tahun 2023. Gas yang biasanya mengalir ke Singapura akan dialihkan seluruhnya untuk domestik, khususnya di Sumatra. 

Adapun pasokan gas bumi yang selama ini masuk ke Singapura dari Lapangan Suban Blok Corridor yang digarap ConocoPhillips. Nantinya, gas yang berasal dari Sumatra juga bisa disuplai ke Jawa melalui pipa Gresik-Semarang-Cirebon-Jakarta. Sehingga ada pemerataan pemanfaatan gas dalam negeri di seluruh Indonesia. 

Vice President Commercial and Business Development ConocoPhillips Taufik Ahmad mengaku, ConocoPhillips perlu berdiskusi demi memastikan rencana dari pemerintah tersebut. 

"Nanti mau coba klarifikasi, diskusi dulu konteksnya gimana," kata Taufik. 

Sesuai perjanjian jual beli gas yang berlaku, kontrak antara Conoco dengan Singapira akan berakhir tahun 2023 mendatang. Sayang, Taufik tidak mengetahui volume gas yang disalurkan saat ini. Yang jelas, pihak ConocoPhillips belum mencari potential buyer di dalam negeri. 

Taufik bilang, mereka akan berdiskusi terlebih dahulu dengan Kementerian ESDM atas rencana penghentian pasokan gas ke Singapura tersebut, meski waktu kontraknya masih panjang. Dalam catatan perusahaan ini, pembelian gas domestik tergolong tinggi mencapai 80%. 

"Ekspor sudah kecil, tidak sampai 20%," kata Taufik.

The government does not resume gas exports to Singapore



The government will not continue the gas sales contract to Singapore after the current contract expires in 2023. The gas supply from the Corridor Block will be used to meet domestic gas needs. Minister of Energy and Mineral Resources (ESDM) Arifin Tasrif said the government was intensively building gas transmission pipelines in Sumatra, Java, and Kalimantan to increase domestic gas distribution. 

the Corridor Block

      The plan is for the government to connect the gas pipeline from the northern tip of Sumatra Island to the east end of Java Island. Therefore, gas supplies in this region will be channeled through the pipeline, including gas from the Corridor Block which is exported to Singapore.

"So, we have a lot of gas in Sumatra. Supply to Singapore will run out in 2023, we will pull into the country, "he said in Jakarta.

Later, the gas supply which has been exported to Singapore will be diverted to the Duri-Dumai Regional pipeline. In addition, the gas supply also comes from other gas wells in Sumatra. Currently, an assessment is being conducted to purchase gas.

"We have approached some of the wells so that we can connect the pipes from Dumai," he said.

For information, gas exports to Singapore so far have been through a pipeline managed by PT Transportasi Gas Indonesia (TGI) which runs from the Corridor Block to Duri Field, North Sumatra, and Singapore. While the Duri-Dumai Pipe built by PT Pertagas connects Duri Meter Station to Dumai Refinery Unit II. Currently, the Duri-Dumai pipeline supplies gas from the Corridor, Bentu, and Jambi Merang Blocks.

SKK Migas

For gas exports, referring to data from the Special Task Force for Upstream Oil and Gas Business Activities (SKK Migas), recorded at 714.26 million cubic feet per day / MMSCFD until the end of last September. This realization was lower than the contract of 814.43 mmscfd. Gas exports through this pipeline are to Singapore and Malaysia. 

Arifin Tasrif

     Arifin added, the transmission pipeline in Sumatra will also be connected to the gas pipeline in Java. Thus, the existing gas supply can also be channeled to Java.

"We will connect Belawan-Aceh, Sumatra-Java, then later to the Cirebon-Gresik area. So, [gas field] ConocoPhilips, Sakakemang, and Jambaran-Tiung Biru can be connected, "he explained.

Jambaran-Tiung Biru

South Sumatra and West Java are now connected to the South Sumatra West Java (SSWJ) Pipe. Furthermore, Pertagas is building the Gresik-Semarang Pipe which is targeted to start operating next year. So, the pipe sections that have not been worked on are from Semarang to Cirebon, to West Java.

Regarding gas sources, the Jambaran-Tiung Biru Field Unitization Project is targeted to start operating in 2021 with gas production of 192 mmscfd. While the Sakakemang Block is still in the exploration stage and is expected to produce gas by 2022. On the island of Kalimantan the government plans to build a Trans-Kalimantan pipeline. 

     Apart from oil and gas blocks that are already in production, the gas supply for Kalimantan can also come from the East Natuna Block. Although the carbon dioxide content (CO2) in this block reaches 70%, technically, he is optimistic that this block can be developed.

Natuna Blok D Alfa (East Natuna)

"We see the potential of Natuna Blok D Alfa (East Natuna) is very large and can be pulled up to Pontianak to the south of Kalimantan," he said.

As is known, the East Natuna Block gas reserves are estimated at 222 trillion cubic feet. But the carbon dioxide content is also very high, reaching 72%, so that only 46 trillion cubic feet can be taken. The government prioritizes gas production to meet domestic needs.

Referring to SKK Migas data, domestic gas purchases continue to increase every year. In 2003, domestic gas purchases were recorded at only 1,480 BBTUD. Since 2009, the use of gas in the country has jumped to 3,323 BBTUD and continues to increase. Now, until last September, gas absorption domestic production reached 4,013.67 BBTUD or 65.76% of the total lifting gas of 6,103.26 BBTUD.

Pemerintah Tidak Lanjutkan Ekspor Gas ke Singapura


Pemerintah tidak akan melanjutkan kontrak penjualan gas ke Singapura setelah kontrak yang berlaku saat ini berakhir pada 2023. Pasokan gas yang berasal dari Blok Corridor ini akan digunakan untuk memenuhi kebutuhan gas dalam negeri. Menteri Energi dan Sumber Daya Mineral (ESDM) Arifin Tasrif mengatakan, pemerintah tengah gencar membangun pipa transmisi gas di Sumatera, Jawa, dan Kalimantan untuk meningkatkan penyaluran gas domestik. 

     Rencananya, pemerintah akan menyambungkan pipa gas dari ujung utara Pulau Sumatera hingga ujung timur Pulau Jawa. Karenanya, pasokan gas yang berada di wilayah ini akan dialirkan melalui pipa tersebut, termasuk gas dari Blok Corridor yang diekspor ke Singapura. 

“Jadi, gas kita kan banyak di Sumatera. Supply ke Singapura akan habis di 2023, kami akan tarik ke dalam negeri,” kata dia di Jakarta.

Nantinya, pasokan gas yang selama ini diekspor ke Singapura akan dialihkan ke pipa Daerah Duri-Dumai. Selain itu, pasokan gas juga berasal dari sumur gas lain yang ada di Sumatera. Saat ini sedang dilakukan penjajakan untuk pembelian gas. 

“Beberapa sumur sudah kami lakukan pendekatan untuk alokasi sehingga bisa menyambung pipa dari Dumai,” tuturnya. 

Sebagai informasi, ekspor gas ke Singapura selama ini melalui pipa yang dikelola oleh PT Transportasi Gas Indonesia (TGI) yang terbentang dari Blok Corridor ke Lapangan Duri, Sumatera Utara dan Singapura. Sementara Pipa Duri-Dumai yang dibangun PT Pertagas menghubungkan Duri Meter Station hingga Kilang Unit II Dumai. Saat ini, Pipa Duri-Dumai mengalirkan gas dari Blok Corridor, Bentu, dan Jambi Merang.

Untuk ekspor gas, mengacu data Satuan Kerja Khusus Pelaksana Kegiatan Usaha Hulu Minyak dan Gas Bumi (SKK Migas), tercatat sebesar 714,26 juta kaki kubik per hari/MMSCFD hingga akhir September lalu. Realisasi ini lebih rendah dari kontrak yang sebesar 814,43 mmscfd. Ekspor gas melalui pipa ini yakni ke Singapura dan Malaysia. 

    Arifin menambahkan, pipa transmisi di Sumatera ini juga akan disambungkan dengan pipa gas di Pulau Jawa.  Sehingga, pasokan gas yang ada juga dapat dialirkan hingga ke Jawa.

“Kami akan sambungkan Belawan-Aceh, Sumatera-Jawa, setelah itu nanti ke daerah Cirebon-Gresik. Sehingga, [lapangan gas] ConocoPhilips, Sakakemang, dan Jambaran-Tiung Biru bisa tersambung,” jelasnya. 

Sumatera Selatan dan Jawa Barat saat ini sudah tersambung dengan Pipa South Sumatera West Java (SSWJ). Selanjutnya, Pertagas sedang membangun Pipa Gresik-Semarang yang ditargetkan mulai beroperasi pada tahun depan. Sehingga, ruas pipa yang belum dikerjakan adalah dari Semarang ke Cirebon, hingga Jawa Barat. 

Terkait sumber gas, Proyek Unitisasi Lapangan Jambaran-Tiung Biru ditargetkan mulai beroperasi pada 2021 dengan produksi gas 192 mmscfd. Sementara Blok Sakakemang kini masih tahap eksplorasi dan diharapkan bisa menghasilkan gas pada 2022. Di Pulau Kalimantan pemerintah berencana membangun Pipa Trans-kalimantan. 

     Selain dari blok migas yang sudah berproduksi, pasokan gas untuk Kalimantan juga dapat berasal dari Blok East Natuna. Meski kandungan karbondioksia (CO2) di blok ini mencapai 70%, secara teknis, dia optimis blok ini dapat dikembangkan.

“Kami melihat potensi Natuna Blok D Alfa (East Natuna) sangat besar dan bisa ditarik sampai Pontianak menuju ke selatan kalimantan,” ujarnya.

Seperti diketahui, cadangan gas Blok East Natuna diperkirakan mencapai 222 triliun kaki kubik. Namun kandungan karbondioksidanya juga sangat tinggi, yaitu mencapai 72%, sehingga hanya 46 triliun kaki kubik saja yang dapat diambil. Pemerintah memprioritaskan produksi gas untuk memenuhi kebutuhan dalam negeri. 

Mengacu data SKK Migas, pembelian gas domestik terus meningkat setiap tahunnya. Pada 2003, pembelian gas dalam negeri tercatat hanya 1.480 BBTUD. Sejak 2009, pemanfaatan gas di dalam negeri ini melonjak hingga mencapai 3.323 BBTUD dan terus meningkat. Kini, hingga September lalu, serapan gas
domestik mencapai 4.013,67 BBTUD atau 65,76% dari total lifting gas 6.103,26 BBTUD.

Exxon and Copi Expand Exploration



ExxonMobil don Conocohillips (Copi) plans to conduct exploration outside its operations area. This opens the contractor's opportunity to get additional new reserves.



Head of the Special Task Force for Upstream Oil and Gas Business Activities (SKK Migas) Dwi Soetjipto said the two cooperation contract contractors (KKKS) from the United States had stated the plan. According to him, the KKKS choice to conduct exploration outside its working area has considered the potential for additional oil and gas reserves. This is considered positive.

Dwi Soetjipto

 "That means a lot of potential for the country, rather than drilling in existing areas where additional production and reserves are not too large," he said.

Dwi added that currently the funds collected from the defined work commitment (KKP) for exploration have reached US $ 2.5 billion. The funds are obtained from gross profit sharing contracts. One of the KKKS that have conducted exploration activities from the KKP fund is PT Penamina Hulu Energi Jambi Merang (PHE Jambi Merang) in the form of a 2D seismic survey with a track length of 30,000 kilometers. Cumulatively, an additional investment of the Jambi Merang MPA is up to US $ 239.3 million for exploration and exploitation activities.

"What the Jambi Merang PHE has done with its KKP does not have a better meaning if it is [only] done in Jambi Merang. So [they] were given the opportunity to use the KKP in other areas, "he added.

SKK Migas also encouraged Pertamina and Medco as a local oil and gas company to boost exploration to keep up with Repsol's success in the Top 10 Discovery 2019. Pertamina and Medco have the largest areas number 1 and 3 in the same basin. To encourage investors to explore, SKK Migas claims to have conducted a roadshow to introduce oil and gas basins in the country.

The reason is the success ratio of exploration well discovery in Indonesia is higher and the global average. Referring to the SKK Migas data, until the third quarter of 2019 exploration success ratio was 45%, while in the world in the last 2 years it was 35%. From the latest exploration findings, there are at least an additional 880 million barrel oil equivalent (MMboe) and 230 MMbo from 13 work areas.

Azi N. Alam

Regarding exploration plans in open areas, ExxonMobil agrees to the possibility. Vice President of Public and Government Affairs of ExxonMobil Indonesia Azi N. Alam said that the company remained committed to Indonesia and continued to look for other opportunities.

the Cepu Block in East Java Indonesia

"Both in the Cepu Block and throughout Indonesia, as part of our long-term commitment in Indonesia," he said.

At present, ExxonMobil is the largest oil-producing KKKS in Indonesia, passing Chevron Pacific Indonesia. As of September 2019, ExxonMobil Cepu Ltd recorded a production of ready to sell or lifting of 216,011 barrels per day (bpd) or exceeding the target set at 216,000 bpd. On the other hand, ConocoPhillips (Grissik) Ltd also recorded a brilliant performance in terms of lifting. The Corridor Block operator successfully recorded 833 MMscfd of gas lifting as of September 2019 or 102.8% of the target set by the 2019 APBN.

Meanwhile, Vice President of Commercial and Business Development at ConocoPhillips Taufik Ahmad said that his party always evaluates open areas as a routine part of the search for potential new oil and gas reserves. Moreover, with the extension of the Corridor Block, the activity will continue, "he said.

Meanwhile, the government gave ConocoPhillips the management of Corridor Block 46% (operator), PT Pertamina Hulu Energi Corridor 30%, and Talisman (Corridor) Ltd. 24%. The Corridor Block production sharing contract will be valid for 20 years, effective from December 20, 2023. The estimated investment value from the implementation of the first 5 year KKP is US $ 250 million and a signature bonus of US $ 250 million.

Participation rights owned by the contractor include a 10% participation right that will be offered to Regionally Owned Enterprises according to ESDM Regulation No. 37/2016. Existing work commitments are directed to work on six work packages that include Lower Palembang Paddles, Lower Palembang Suban, Telisa Well Suban Far East, and Suban Far East (continued prospects).

The Corridor Block is one of the oil and gas blocks of strategic value considering the amount of gas production around 1,100 MMscf or equivalent to 12% of the total national natural gas production at this time. In addition, oil and condensate production reached 6,600 bopd.

IDD PROJECT

In other developments, Chevron Pacific Indonesia needs partners to share the risk of developing a deep sea project or Indonesia Deepwater Development (IDD) phase II. Acting Director General of Oil and Gas at the Ministry of Energy and Mineral Resources Djoko Siswanto agrees that Chevron is looking for partners before submitting a revised phase II development plan (POD). They ask for time until 2020, "he said.

Previously, the approval of the development plan (POD) had the potential to be delayed due to the possibility of a change in the consortium of companies working on the IDD project. Deputy Head of SKK Migas Fatar Yani Abdurrahman said that he did not yet know Chevron's future in developing the IDD Project. However, there will be a change in the consortium and waiting for the entry of new partners.

"Still waiting. I don't know whether Chevron is coming out or not, but the consortium has changed. He [Chevron] did not say to leave, but he was definitely looking for [partners] to develop. ”

In the IDD Project, Chevron is recorded as a project operator with 62% participating rights. Based on SKK Migas's explanation, the IDD Gendalo-Gehem Project is targeted to start production in the first quarter of 2024. The project is now in the stage of drafting detailed design auction documents (FEED), contract awarding, and submission of expenditure approvals (AFE) for surveys.

     With the potential change in the consortium, continued Fatar, the preparation and approval of the IDD Project POD was delayed again. SKK Migas is waiting for a new consortium report before discussing POD.

"Maybe if he deals in January, after he reports to us. Well, partner or what is the point, this is our final [POD material] proposal, "he said.

He added that there was no specific deadline for determining new partners in the development of the IDD project. Fatar claimed that he could not force the development of the project without looking at the economics of the project considered by KKKS.

Exxon dan Copi Perluas Eksplorasi


ExxonMobil don Conocohillips (Copi) berencana melakuakn eksplorasi di luar area operasinya. Hal tersebut membuka peluang kontraktor untuk mendapatkan tambahan cadangan baru.

Kepala Satuan Kerja Khusus Pelaksana Kegiatan Usaha Hulu Minyak dan Gas Bumi (SKK Migas) Dwi Soetjipto mengatakan kedua kontraktor kontrak kerja sama (KKKS) asal Amerika Serikat itu telah menyatakan rencananya tersebut. Menurutnya, pilihan KKKS untuk melakukan eksplorasi di luar wilayah kerjanya telah mempertimbangkan potensi tambahan cadangan minyak dan gas bumi (migas). Hal tersebut dinilai positif.

 “Itu potensi berarti buat negara, daripada mereka ngebor di wilayah existing yang tambahan produksinya dan cadangannya gak terlalu besar," ujarnya.

Dwi menambahkan saat ini dana yang dihimpun dari komitmen kerja pasti (KKP) untuk eksplorasi sudah mencapai US$2,5 miliar. Dana tersebut didapatkan dari kontrak bagi hasil kotor atau gross split. Salah satu KKKS yang telah melakukan aktivitas eksplorasi dari dana KKP adalah PT Penamina Hulu Energi Jambi Merang (PHE Jambi Merang) berupa survei seismik 2D dengan panjang lintasan 30.000 kilometer. Secara kumulatif, tambahan investasi KKP Jambi Merang hingga 2024 senilai US$239,3 juta untuk kegiatan eksplorasi dan eksploitasi.

“Yang dilakukan PHE Jambi Merang dengan KKP-nya tidak memiliki arti yang lebih bagus kalau [hanya] dilakukan di Jambi Merang saja. Jadi [mereka] diberi kesempatan menggunakan KKP-nya di area lain,” tambahnya.

SKK Migas juga mendorong Pertamina dan Medco sebagai perusahaan migas lokal untuk menggenjot eksplorasi guna mengikuti kesuksesan Repsol yang masuk Top 10 Discovery 2019. Adapun Pertamina dan Medco memiliki area terluas nomor 1 dan 3 di cekungan yang sama. Untuk mendorong ketertarikan investor melakukan eksplorasi, SKK Migas mengklaim telah melakukan roadshow untuk memperkenalkan cekungan-cekungan migas yang ada di Tanah Air. 

Pasalnya, success ratio penemuan sumur eksplorasi di Indonesia lebih tinggi dan rata-rata global. Merujuk data SKK Migas, hingga kuartal III/2019 success ratio eksplorasi sebesar 45%, sementara di dunia dalam 2 tahun terakhir sebesar 35%. Dari sisi penemuan eksplorasi terkini, setidaknya sudah ada tambahan 880 million barrel oil equivalent (MMboe) dan 230 MMbo dari 13 area kerja.

Terkait rencana eksplorasi di area terbuka, ExxonMobil mengamini adanya kemungkinan tersebut. Vice President Public and Government Affairs ExxonMobil Indonesia Azi N. Alam mengatakan pihaknya tetap berkomitmen kepada Indonesia dan terus mencari peluang lain.

“Baik di Blok Cepu maupun di seluruh Indonesia, sebagai bagian dari komitmen jangka panjang kami di Indonesia,” katanya.

Saat ini, ExxonMobil merupakan KKKS penghasil minyak terbesar di Indonesia melewati Chevron Pacific Indonesia. Per September 2019, ExxonMobil Cepu Ltd mencatatkan produksi siap jual atau lifting sebanyak 216.011 barel per hari (bph) atau melebihi target yang ditetapkan sebanyak 216.000 bph. Di sisi lain, ConocoPhillips (Grissik) Ltd pun mencatatkan kinerja cemerlang dalam segi lifting. Operator Blok Corridor ini berhasil mencatatkan lifting gas sebanyak 833 MMscfd per September 2019 atau 102,8% dari target yang ditetapkan APBN 2019.

Sementara itu, Vice President Commercial and Business Development ConocoPhillips Taufik Ahmad mengatakan pihaknya selalu melakukan evaluasi atas area terbuka sebagai bagian rutin pencarian potensi cadangan migas baru. Apalagi, dengan adanya perpanjangan Blok Corridor, kegiatan tersebut akan diteruskan,” katanya.

Adapun, pemerintah memberikan kewenangan pengelolaan Blok Corridor kepada ConocoPhillips sebesar 46% (operator), PT Pertamina Hulu Energi Corridor 30%, dan Talisman (Corridor) Ltd. 24%. Kontrak bagi hasil Blok Coridor akan berlaku untuk 20 tahun, efektif sejak 20 Desember 2023. Perkiraan nilai investasi dari pelaksanaan KKP 5 tahun pertama senilai US$250 juta dan bonus tanda tangan US$ 250 juta. 

Hak partisipasi yang dimiliki oleh kontraktor tersebut termasuk hak partisipasi 10% yang akan ditawarkan kepada Badan Usaha Milik Daerah sesuai Permen ESDM No. 37/2016. Komitmen kerja pasti yang ada diarahkan untuk mengerjakan enam paket pekerjaan yang mencakup Dayung Lower Palembang, Suban Lower Palembang, Telisa Well Suban Far East, Serta Suban Far East (prospek lanjutan).

Adapun Blok Corridor merupakan salah satu blok migas yang bernilai strategis mengingat besarnya produksi gas sekitar 1.100 MMscf atau setara dengan 12% dari total produksi gas bumi nasional saat ini. Selain itu, produksi minyak dan kondensat mencapai 6.600 bopd.

PROYEK IDD

Pada perkembangan lain, Chevron Pacific lndonesia membutuhkan mitra untuk berbagi risiko pengembangan proyek laut dalam atau Indonesia Deepwater Development (IDD) tahap II. Pelaksana Tugas Direktur Jenderal Migas Kementerian ESDM Djoko Siswanto mengamini bahwa Chevron sedang mencari mitra sebelum mengajukan revisi rencana pengembangan (POD) IDD tahap II. Mereka minta waktu sampai 2020,” tuturnya.

Sebelummya, pengesahan rencana pengembangan (POD) berpotensi molor akibat kemungkinan perubahan konsorsium perusahaan yang menggarap proyek IDD muncul. Wakil Kepala SKK Migas Fatar Yani Abdurrahman mengatakan belum mengetahui masa depan Chevron dalam pengembangan Proyek IDD. Hanya saja, akan ada perubahan konsorsium dan menunggu masuknya mitra baru.

“Masih menunggu. Saya enggak tahu Chevron keluar atau tidak, tapi konsorsium berubah. Dia [Chevron] tidak bilang keluar, tapi yang jelas Iagi cari [mitra] agar bisa dikembangkan.”

Di Proyek IDD, Chevron tercatat sebagai operator proyek dengan hak partisipasi sebesar 62%. Berdasarkan paparan SKK Migas, Proyek IDD Gendalo-Gehem ditargetkan mulai produksi pada kuartal I/2024. Proyek ini kini masuk tahap penyusunan dokumen lelang desain rinci (FEED), contract awarding, dan pengajuan persetujuan pengeluaran (AFE) untuk survei. 

     Dengan adanya potensi perubahan konsorsium itu, lanjut Fatar, maka penyusunan dan persetujuan POD Proyek IDD kembali tertunda. SKK Migas menunggu laporan konsorsium baru terlebih dahulu sebelum melakukan pembahasan POD.

“Mungkin kalau dia deal pada Januari, setelah dia laporkan ke kami. Nah, mitra atau apa pokoknya ini proposal [bahan POD] terakhir kami,” tuturnya.

Dia menambahkan tidak ada tenggat waktu tertentu untuk menentukan mitra baru dalam pengembangan proyek IDD. Fatar mengaku tidak bisa memaksakan pengembangan proyek tanpa melihat keekonomian proyek yang dipertimbangkan KKKS.

The Government Asks for Corridor Block Production Not to Decline



Minister of Energy and Mineral Resources (ESDM) Arifin Tasrif urged that oil and gas Corridor Block production be maintained or even increased. This follows that a Corridor Block (2023-2043) production cooperation contract (PSC) has been signed. 

Arifin Tasrif

     Arifin said, after the current contract expired at the Corridor Block was again managed by the existing contractor namely ConocoPhilip (Grissik) Ltd, Talisman Corridor LTd (Repsol), and PT Pertamina Hulu Energi Corridor.

ConocoPhilip

Because the government considers that the existing contractor has good technical and financial skills to continue managing this block. He hopes the existing contractor can make a positive contribution to state revenue and national oil and gas production. 

the Corridor Block

      Especially considering the Corridor Block is one of the largest natural gas producer blocks in Indonesia with gas production of 1,100 million cubic feet per day (million standard cubic feet per day / mmscfd) or 12% of total national production, and oil and condensate 6,600 barrels per day ( bph).

"With the contract extension being signed, so that [the contractor] not only maintains, but also increases the rate of oil and gas production in the Corridor Block, and seeks to discover new oil and gas reserves through exploration activities," he said in Jakarta.

Based on ESDM Ministry data, the new PSC Corridor Block will use a gross split scheme. Regarding the profit sharing (split), for base split and variable split, KKKS received a 48.5% allocation for oil and 53.5% for gas. Furthermore, progressive splits will be adjusted to developments in oil prices and cumulative oil and gas production. 

     Furthermore, the portion of participating interest rights (participating interest / PI) in the Corridor Block will also change after 2023. At present, ConocoPhilips holds a PI of 54%, Repsol 36%, and Pertamina 10%. After the existing PSC ends, ConocoPhilips has a 46% stake, Pertamina 30%, and 24% Repsol.

Repsol Girls

According to Arifin, before the contract was signed, the existing cooperation contract contractor (KKKS) had deposited a signature bonus of US $ 250 million. In addition, the contractor also promised a five-year fixed work commitment (KKP) of US $ 250 million. This number is the second largest since the signing of the contract in Indonesia.

"Hopefully with the signing of the Corridor Block gross split contract, it will hopefully arouse investors' enthusiasm for investment in Indonesia's upstream oil and gas," he said.

Referring to the Ministry of Energy and Mineral Resources data, KKKS has proposed a number of activities that will be carried out using KKP funds. In the first year, the contractor will work on drilling one well in Rowung Lower Palembang-1 worth US $ 2.4 million and 3D seismic acquisition of US $ 23.93 million. In the second year, activities that will be carried out are drilling one well in Suban Lower Palembang-1 US $ 11.6 million and 3D seismic acquisition of US $ 31.53 million.

Following this, activities planned for the third year included the work of Telisa Well with two wells valued at US $ 20 million, 3D seismic acquisition of US $ 25 million, and the development of Suban Far East at US $ 33.04 million. 

     In the fourth year, the contractor will work on Telisa Well one well worth US $ 18.04 million, another prospect of US $ 28.2 million, and 3D seismic acquisition of US $ 20 million. Finally, in the fifth year, the activities that will be carried out are the development of Suban Far East of US $ 8.26 million and other prospects of US $ 28 million.

Although still managed by the existing contractor, the holder of the Corridor Block operator will change. Currently the operator of this block is ConocoPhilips. For three years, after 19 December 2023 to 19 December 2026, ConocoPililip remained the Corridor Block operator. After that, this block will enter the operatorhip transition period, where Pertamina will then switch to the operator. 

     The government did not specify how long this transition period would be. PT Pertamina Hulu Energi Corridor (PHE Corridor) President Director Taufik Aditiyawarman said, based on current data, the Corridor Block has an area of ​​2,095.25 kilometers square (km2) which is mostly located in South Sumatra Province. Pertamina also has four active work areas in the South Sumatra area, namely Pertamina EP Asset 1, Jambi Merang PHE, Ogan Komering PHE, and Raja Tempirai PHE.

Pemerintah Minta Produksi Blok Corridor Tidak Turun


Menteri Energi dan Sumber Daya Mineral (ESDM) Arifin Tasrif mendorong agar produksi migas Blok Corridor bisa dipertahankan atau bahkan dinaikkan. Hal ini menyusul telah ditandatangani kontrak kerja sama atau (production sharing contract/PSC) Blok Corridor untuk 2023-2043. 

     Arifin menuturkan, setelah kontrak yang berlaku saat ini berakhir pada Blok Corridor kembali dikelola oleh kontraktor eksisting yakni ConocoPhilip (Grissik) Ltd, Talisman Corridor LTd (Repsol), dan PT Pertamina Hulu Energi Corridor. 

Pasalnya, pemerintah menilai bahwa kontraktor eksisting memiliki kemampuan teknis dan keuangan yang baik untuk melanjutkan pengelolan blok ini. Pihaknya berharap kontraktor eksisting dapat memberikan kontribusi positif bagi penerimaan negara dan produksi migas nasional. 

     Apalagi mengingat Blok Corridor merupakan salah satu blok produsen gas bumi terbesar di Indonesia dengan produksi gas 1.100 juta kaki kubik per hari (million standard cubic feet per day/ mmscfd) atau 12% dari total produksi nasional, dan minyak dan kondensat 6.600 barel per hari (bph).

“Dengan ditandatanganinya perpanjangan kontrak, agar [kontraktor] tidak hanya mempertahankan, tetapi juga meningkatkan laju produksi migas di Blok Corridor, dan mengupayakan penemuan cadangan migas baru melalui kegiatan eksplorasi,” kata dia di Jakarta.

Berdasarkan data Kementerian ESDM, PSC baru Blok Corridor akan menggunakan skema bagi hasil kotor (gross split). Terkait besaran bagi hasil (split), untuk base split dan variable split, KKKS memperoleh jatah 48,5% untuk minyak dan 53,5% untuk gas. 

     Selanjutnya, progressif split akan disesuaikan dengan perkembangan harga minyak dan kumulatif produksi migas. Selanjutnya, porsi kepemilikan hak partisipasi (participating interest/PI) di Blok Corridor juga akan berubah setelah 2023. Saat ini, ConocoPhilips memegang PI sebesar 54%, Repsol 36%, dan Pertamina 10%. Setelah PSC yang ada berakhir, ConocoPhilips memiliki saham 46%, Pertamina 30%, dan Repsol 24%.

Menurut Arifin, sebelum kontrak diteken, kontraktor kontrak kerja sama (KKKS) eksisting telah menyetorkan bonus tanda tangan sebesar US$ 250 juta. Selain itu, kontraktor juga menjanjikan komitmen kerja pasti (KKP) untuk lima tahun sebesar US$ 250 juta. Jumlah ini merupakan terbesar kedua sejak penandatanganan kontrak di Indonesia.

“Semoga dengan ditandatanganinya kontrak gross split Blok Corridor ini semoga semakin membangkitkan gairah investor untuk investasi di hulu migas Indonesia,” ujar dia. 

Mengacu data Kementerian ESDM, KKKS telah mengajukan sejumlah kegiatan yang akan dikerjakan menggunakan dana KKP. Pada tahun pertama, kontraktor akan menggarap pengeboran satu sumur di Dayung Lower Palembang-1 senilai US$ 2,4 juta dan akuisisi seismik 3D US$ 23,93 juta. Di tahun kedua, kegiatan yang akan dilakukan adalah pengeboran satu sumur di Suban Lower Palembang-1 US$ 11,6 juta dan akuisisi seismik 3D US$ 31,53 juta. 

Berikutanya, kegiatan yang direncanakan di tahun ketiga mencakup pengerjaan Telisa Well sebanyak dua sumur senilai US$ 20 juta, akuisisi seismik 3D US$ 25 juta, dan pengembangan Suban Far East US$ 33,04 juta. Pada tahun keempat, kontraktor akan mengerjakan Telisa Well satu sumur senilai US$ 18,04 juta, prospek lain US$ 28,2 juta, dan akuisisi seismik 3D US$ 20 juta. Terakhir, di tahun kelima, kegiatan yang akan dikerjakan adalah pengembangan Suban Far East US$ 8,26 juta dan prospek lain US$ 28 juta.

Meski tetap dikelola kontraktor eksisting, pemegang operator Blok Corridor akan berubah. Saat ini operator blok ini adalah ConocoPhilips. Selama tiga tahun, setelah 19 Desember 2023 hingga 19 Desember 2026, ConocoPhilip tetap menjadi operator Blok Corridor. 

     Setelah itu, blok ini akan memasuki masa transisi operatorship, di mana kemudian Pertamina akan beralih menjadi operator. Pemerintah tidak menentukan berapa lama masa transisi ini. 

     Direktur Utama PT Pertamina Hulu Energi Corridor (PHE Corridor) Taufik Aditiyawarman mengatakan, berdasarkan data saat ini, Blok Corridor memiliki luas 2.095,25 kilometer persegi (km2) yang sebagian besar berada di Provinsi Sumatera Selatan. Pertamina juga memiliki empat wilayah kerja aktif di area Sumatera Selatan, yaitu Pertamina EP Aset 1, PHE Jambi Merang, PHE Ogan Komering, dan PHE Raja Tempirai.

Corridor Block Contract Signed



The Ministry of Energy and Mineral Resources (ESDM) has officially handed over management of the Corridor Block to ConocoPhillips, Peitamina and Repsol for a period of 20 years starting from December 20, 2023 with a gross split profit sharing scheme. 

     

ESDM Minister Arifin Tasrif

     ESDM Minister Arifin Tasrif said the government was trying to speed up the decision-making process for further management of the oil and gas Working Area (WK), which would end its cooperation contracts so that production could be maintained or even increased, as well as maintaining investment continuity.

"I advised the contractor not only to maintain, but also increase the rate of oil and gas production from WK Corridor, as well as to seek discovery of new oil and gas reserves through exploration activities," he said.

ConocoPhillips

The WK Corridor revenue sharing contract is an extension contract with the participating rights holder ConocoPhillips (Giissik) Ltd. by 46%, PT Pertamina Hulu Energi (PHE) Corridor 30%, and Talisman (Corridor) Ltd. by 24%. The estimated investment value from implementing the first 5 year fixed work commitment (KKP) is US $ 250 million and a signature bonus of US $ 250 million. 

     The participating rights included by the contractor include a 10% participation right that will be offered to Regionally Owned Enterprises (BUMD) in accordance with Minister of Energy and Mineral Resources Regulation No. 37/2016.

Arifin added that the WK or Corridor Block is one of the oil and gas blocks of strategic value given the amount of gas production which reached 1,100 MMScfd or equivalent to 12% of the total national natural gas production at this time. Meanwhile, oil and condensate production is around 6,600 barrels per day (bopd).

PHE President Director Corridor Taufik Aditiyawarman said there was an increase in the composition of participation rights in the cooperation contract agreement. Initially, Pertamina only had 10%. After a new management period in 2023, ConocoPhillips will remain an operator for 3 years. After that, the transition period will enter before the operator is submitted to the PHE Corridor.

Regarding the transition to operator shift, ConocoPhillips Vice President Commercial and Business Development Taufik Ahmad claimed there would be a joint operation agreement (JOA) with Pertamina after a new cooperation contract was signed. However, for a detailed discussion, the JOA conducted with Pertamina has not yet been carried out.

"Anyway, we follow it as the Minister of Energy and Mineral Resources reads the letter. What kind of mechanism, what kind of transition, we talk for 2024-2025. Now the focus is on the PSC [production sharing contract] and the rest of the contract, "he added.

the Corridor Block

ConocoPhillips projects gas production from the Corridor Block in accordance with the 2019 State Budget (APBN) target of 810 MMscfd. Based on data from the Special Task Force for Upstream Oil and Gas Business Activities (SKK Migas), until the end of September, the realization of ConocoPhillips gas production reached 833 MMscfd. The realization was 2.8% higher than the target set.

Kontrak Blok Corridor Ditandatangani


Kementerian Energi dan Sumber Daya Mineral (ESDM) resmi menyerahkan pengelolaan Blok Corridor ke ConocoPhillips, Peitamina, dan Repsol untuk jangka waktu 20 tahun mulai dari 20 Desember 2023 dengan skema bagi hasil kotor atau gross split. Menteri ESDM Arifin Tasrif mengatakan pemerintah berupaya mempercepat proses pengambilan keputusan untuk pengelolaan lanjut Wilayah Kerja (WK) migas yang akan berakhir kontrak kerja samanya agar produksi dapat dipertahankan atau bahkan ditingkatkan, serta menjaga kelangsungan investasi.

“Saya berpesan kepada kontraktor agar tidak hanya dapat mempertahankan, namun juga meningkatkan laju produksi migas dari WK Corridor, serta mengupayakan penemuan cadangan migas baru melalui kegiatan eksplorasi,” katanya.

Kontrak bagi hasil WK Corridor merupakan kontrak perpanjangan dengan pemegang hak partisipasi ConocoPhillips (Giissik) Ltd. sebesar 46%, PT Pertamina Hulu Energi (PHE) Corridor 30%, dan Talisman (Corridor) Ltd. sebesar 24%. Perkiraan nilai investasi dari pelaksanaan komitmen kerja pasti (KKP) 5 tahun pertama sebesar US$250 juta dan bonus tanda tangan senilai US$250 juta. Hak partisipasi yang oleh kontraktor tersebut termasuk hak partisipasi 10% yang akan ditawarkan kepada Badan Usaha Milik Daerah (BUMD) sesuai Peraturan Menteri ESDM Nomor 37/2016.

Arifin menambahkan WK atau Blok Corridor merupakan salah satu blok migas yang bernilai strategis mengingat besarnya produksi gas yang mencapai 1.100 MMScfd atau setara dengan 12 % dari total produksi gas bumi nasional saat ini. Adapun, produksi minyak dan kondensat sekitar 6.600 barel per hari (bopd).

Direktur Utama PHE Corridor Taufik Aditiyawarman mengatakan ada kenaikan komposisi hak partisipasi pada perjanjian kontrak kerja sama ini. Semula, pertamina hanya memiliki 10%. Setelah masa pengelolaan baru pada 2023, ConocoPhillips akan tetap menjadi operator selama 3 tahun. Setelah itu, akan masuk masa transisi sebelum operator diserahkan kepada PHE Corridor.

Terkait transisi perpindahan operator, Vice President Commercial and Business Development ConocoPhillips Taufik Ahmad mengaku akan ada kesepakatan operasi bersama (Joint Operation Agreement/JOA) dengan Pertamina setelah kontrak kerja sama baru ditandatangani. Hanya saja, untuk pembahasan rinci, JOA yang dilakukan dengan Pertamina belum dilakukan.

“Pokoknya kami ikuti seperti yang dibunyikan surat Menteri [ESDM]. Mekanisme seperti apa, transisi seperti apa, kita bicara untuk 2024-2025. Sekarang fokus ke PSC [kontrak bagi hasil] dan sisa kontrak,” tambahnya.

ConocoPhillips memproyeksikan produksi gas dari Blok Corridor sesuai dengan target Anggaran  Pendapatan dan Belanja Negara (APBN) 2019 sebanyak 810 MMscfd. Berdasarkan data Satuan Kerja Khusus Pelaksana Kegiatan Usaha Hulu Minyak dan Gas Bumi (SKK Migas), hingga akhir September lalu, realisasi produksi gas ConocoPhillips mencapai 833 MMscfd. Realisasi tersebut 2,8% lebih tinggi dari target yang ditetapkan.
