Analysis - Energy Sector Highlights Last updated: October 7, 2015

  • Indonesia is reorienting energy production from serving primarily export markets to meeting its growing domestic consumption. Indonesia's energy industry has faced challenges in recent years from regulatory uncertainty and inadequate investment.
  • Indonesia's declining oil production and rising domestic demand resulted in the country's exit from OPEC in 2009 and higher levels of petroleum imports to meet demand. Indonesia is scheduled to rejoin OPEC in December 2015.
  • International oil companies, particularly Chevron and Total, dominate Indonesia's upstream oil sector. State-owned energy company Pertamina must balance its needs as a corporation against its mandate as a national oil company to meet domestic demand.
  • Oil production in Indonesia continued to decline in 2014 as there were no major new production projects to offset declines at older fields. Aging infrastructure and fields suggest the country will struggle to meet production targets in the short term.
  • Indonesia's refinery output primarily serves the growing domestic market, although current refining capacity is insufficient to meet demand growth.
