The Upstream Oil and Gas Special Regulatory Task Force (SKK Migas) said on Wednesday that it would allow upstream companies to postpone paying annual Abandonment and Site Restoration (ASR) fees in a bid to keep Indonesia’s production levels on track as the COVID-19 crisis continues.The fees, which are used to address environmental issues associated with inactive oil and gas wells, will be collected next year instead. Companies are required to apply to SKK Migas for the relief.“This is our way to ensure that targets for this year and the following years are met,” said SKK Migas head Dwi Soetjipto in a statement. He said with the ASR relaxation, companies would have more liquidity to service and maintain their existing oil and gas wells. “Without that incentive, in the short term – two or three years ahead – the production decline might be sharper than in previous years,” he wrote in a text message.Oil and gas producers in Indonesia have welcomed SKK Migas’ ASR relaxation as it gives them more room to adjust their cash flow, said Indonesian Petroleum Association (IPA) executive director Marjolijn Wajong.IPA members comprise many of Indonesia’s top oil and gas producers, such as California-based Chevron, Texas-based ExxonMobil and London-based BP.“But at the end of the day, the incentive will help some companies while, for others, it may [not],” she told the Post on Thursday, explaining that IPA members’ financial circumstances differed.Many multinational oil companies have winded down investment in Southeast Asia because of economic pressures, said Angus Rodger, upstream research director at energy consultancy Wood Mackenzie Asia Pacific, in a press note on July 15.“If governments genuinely want more spending on big development throughout the region, they are going to have to fight for it,” he said.Topics : Postponing ASR payments is one of several relaxations SKK Migas has promised to oil and gas companies to keep their output in line with annual targets, despite this year’s crude oil price crash and the collapse in fuel demand.The price of Brent, an international oil trading benchmark, hit a low of US$19.33 per barrel on April 21. On Friday, it was $43 per barrel. Experts say that despite signs of recovery, crude oil prices will likely remain low – below $50 a barrel – until next year, when the health crisis is expected to abate.The task force has already revised down its 2020 oil production target by 4 percent to 725,000 barrels per day. It also revised down its gas production target by 14.2 percent to 5,727 million metric standard cubic feet per day (mmscfd), as a result of economic pressures.“The contribution of annual ASR fees to expenses is, as far I know, a fixed amount, and it’s quite significant under such price conditions,” oil and gas observer Tumbur Parlindungan told The Jakarta Post on Wednesday.
Sam Allardyce has hailed the impact of West Ham’s summer signings and admits he is shocked at how fast his new recruits have taken to life in the Barclays Premier League. The Hammers rose to seventh in the table, level on points with Arsenal and Liverpool, after a 2-0 victory over struggling QPR on Sunday. West Ham’s starting line-up featured six players brought in over the summer and a convincing performance was rounded off when Diafra Sakho sealed the win with his fifth goal in as many games. Press Association “The thing is how much of a goal-threat do you have and what can you do to build a goal-threat?” Allardyce said. “If you struggle in that regard then the rest of the team comes under that extra pressure and eventually cracks. “I think QPR had one good attempt from Charlie Austin but when you haven’t got a real goalscorer in your team it makes so much of a difference. “In Sakho and Valencia we might have two, hopefully and that’s without Andy Carroll back as well.” Sakho has been the most eye-catching of the Hammers’ new arrivals but Enner Valencia, Alex Song, Morgan Amalfitano and Aaron Cresswell have all impressed in the early part of the season. “I have to say they have surprised me,” Allardyce said. “If you have one or two doing it from the start, particularly from abroad, then you are satisfied – but all of them have had an impact. “Valencia and especially Sakho with the goals, Mauro Zarate has done well, and Aaron Cresswell looks as though he belongs in the Premier League. “We all know about Songy and he is not even fit now – when he gets fit we will see even more from him.” Allardyce continued: “We have a very welcoming dressing room for new players here. (Captain) Kevin Nolan builds a strong bond between the players and because of that togetherness and because we try to do as much as we can for the players, they grow willing.” The Hammers struggled for goals last season, particularly while club-record signing Andy Carroll was out injured. The powerful England forward is back on the sidelines again but Allardyce believes his side now have the cutting edge to cope.
