Head of Special Unit the Upstream Oil and Gas (Migas SKK) Rudi Rubiandini estimates, production of crude oil and condensate in 2013, up 834,000 barrels per day.
“At present, production is 831,700 barrels per day and by the end of the 834 000 barrels per day,” he said in Jakarta on Tuesday.
According to him, the production level is still lower than the budget target set at 840,000 barrels per day.
“But, his accomplishments can be 99.3 percent and it was nice,” he said.
In the last 1.5 months, production is declining mainly due to a number of field maintenance cut gas condensate production.
However, he added, in the second half of 2013, the SKK optimistic that production could increase to 840,000 barrels per day.
Although, in the second half of 2013, the production of the Offshore North West Java (ONWJ) fell due to the work platform (platform).
However, in the second half as well, there is the addition of Block West Madura Offshore (WMO) which started production three wells.
In contrast to oil, Rudi optimistic “lifting” gas will exceed the budget target.
According to him, until the first half of 2013 production was still 6,998 BBTUD or lower than the budget target BBTUD 7175.
“However, we are optimistic until the end of 2013 will exceed the budget target,” he said.
Head of the Division of Oil and Gas Utilization Gas SKK Popi Nafis Ahmad added that the present downturn is “lifting” gas is mainly because there is a maintenance schedule Tangguh, Papua, and Bontang, East Kalimantan, and damage to electrical transformer in Cilegon, Banten.
“However, going forward, there is a field that will increase its production,” he said.
Which are expected to come from South Mahakam field managed by Total E & P Indonesia with a production rate of 115 MMSCFD, Musi East of PT Pertamina EP 20 MMSCFD, Epic Sengkang 12 MMSCFD, and Ruby from Pearl Oil Sebuku 6.7 MMSCFD.
