Oil country tubular goods market in Indonesia: Rise in offshore E&P activities
The oil and gas E&P activities in the country were slow, and no new blocks were awarded in the bid rounds in 2016, owing to the plunging crude oil prices and domestic oil and gas regulatory environment in Indonesia. However, since the third quarter of 2016, with the recovery in crude oil prices, there has been a revival of the upstream oil and gas sector in Indonesia, as well as other countries in the world. For example, in February 2018, Directorate General of Oil and Gas (MIGAS) prepared 24 acreages conventional and two acreages non-conventional oil and gas for bidding in 2018. Also, there has been a significant increase in demand for oil in the country, owing to economic development.
According to a senior analyst at Technavio for research on oil and gas, “In 2017, Oil and gas accounted for over 50% of the total primary energy consumption in Indonesia. Hence, this has resulted in the widening of the gap between the oil supply and demand in the country, thus highlighting the importance of increasing the domestic supply. For instance, as compared with 2016, the crude oil import for Indonesia increased by 6.26% in 2017. According to lEA, Indonesia has switched from being a net oil exporter to importer. In 2016, Indonesia was the third-largest net importer of oil products and the tenth-largest in terms of electricity, globally.”
