Indonesia has an ambitious target to almost double natural gas production from 6.5 billion cubic feet per day (cf/d) to 12 billion cf/d by 2030. Hitting that goal means giant undeveloped gas projects, such as Inpex’s Masela and Chevron’s IDD, must proceed rapidly.
Indonesian upstream regulator SKK Migas has approved ExxonMobil’s plans to restart drilling at its giant Cepu Block in a bid to find new reserves and stem falling output at the country’s largest oil producing block.
SKK Migas, Indonesia’s upstream regulator, expects Eni to takeover Chevron’s giant Indonesia Deepwater Development (IDD) during the first quarter 2021. If the move comes to pass, expect other potential buyers, that could include Pertamina, Sinopec, Neptune Energy and Saka Energi, to be in the new IDD mix.
