JAKARTA, KOMPAS.com – With the national oil production target of one million barrels per day (bpd) by 2030, there is a need for cooperation with all stakeholders, including oil and gas contractors (KKKS), an official said.
“The step toward one million barrels requires a leap which may cause risks and obstacles because what will be done is not business as usual,” said Upstream Oil and Gas Special Regulatory Task Force (SKK Migas) head Dwi Soetjipto in a webinar on Monday, November 2.
Dwi, former president director of Indonesia’s state oil and gas firm PT Pertamina (Persero), said that SKK Migas and KKKS play a crucial role in carrying out the assurance function such as internal audit, risk management, and compliance.

“It does not only focus on compliance management, or not only become a safety net but must play an active role as a bridge to achieve organizational goals by providing improvements in the process of good governance,” he said.
In ensuring the supervision and control of upstream oil and gas activities, he added, SKK Migas continues to improve the standards and effectiveness of supervision and auditing in this strategic sector.
Meanwhile, SKK Migas internal supervisor Taslim Yunus said SKK Migas has a tough assignment to ensure that state revenues can be maintained and realized in terms of quantity and good governance.

Taslim further added that good governance of the upstream oil and gas sector is one of the keys to convincing the business community, both local and international, on the competitiveness of Indonesia’s upstream oil and gas sector, and achieving the production target of one million barrels per day.
