Natural gas lifting reached 6,587 million standard cubic feet per day (MMSCFD) or 96.4 percent of the revised State Budget of 7,079 MMSCFD. In total, oil and gas lifting reached 1.94 million barrels of oil equivalent per day, or 94.8 percent of the Revised 2015 State Budget of 2,045 MMSCFD.
Chairman of SKK Migas Amien Sunaryadi said during a media briefing on late Wednesday that some production sharing contractors (PSCs) recorded higher-than-target oil and gas production, while some others recorded lower-than-target production. SKK Migas, he said, will continue to work closely with the PSCs to find solutions on how to meet the lifting target and assure that the PSCs meet their Work Plan & Budget (WP&B) set earlier.
He added SKK Migas has also asked the PSCs to make revision as earlier as possible. Usually, PSCs made revision in mid year (around July-August), however, given the low oil price, PSCs have made revision in April. Most of them have submitted their yearly production target.
SKK Migas now pins hope on the increasing production of Banyuurip field within the Cepu Block in the second half of this year.
As of June, the average production of Banyuurip field has increased to 83,534 barrels of oil per day (bpd), up from an average of 40,179 bpd in January this year. SKK Migas, Sunaryadi said, expects production will continue to increase to 149,000 bpd in August this year and further increase to reach its peak production level of 205,000 bpd beginning from December this year.
“As for full year, we project that the average oil will reach 826,400 barrels per day, or slightly above (State Budget) target,” he said.
In the first six months of the year, revenues from oil and gas sector reached US$7 billion, or equals to Rp92.5 trillion, nearly half of the full year target set in the revised State Budget of US$14.99 billion or equals to Rp198 trillion.
“We are optimistic that the full year (revenues) target will be reached,” Sunaryadi added.
The SKK Migas head was encouraged by the level of local content in the oil and gas industry. In the six months to June, the local content level used in various oil and gas projects have reached 67.71 percent. Out of total expenditures of US$2.24 billion, US$1.42 billion were spent to procurement local products and services. The local content for service is much higher at 72.75 percent, valued at US$944 million, out of total services value of US$1.39 billion. The local content level for products reached 59.61 percent, valued at US$482 million, out of total value of US$856 million.
