Oil & Gas

Extensive experience in major oil and gas transactions


The oil and gas industry, both in Indonesia and globally, has experienced dramatic volatility. Oil and gas business industry in Indonesia is arguably now in a transitional phase, with a growing domestic need for gas (both for consumers and industrial use). In terms of where the industry is right now, crude oil production in Indonesia has been on a downward trend for the past decade, with most oil production now coming from mature fields. Indonesia’s gas industry is also being pressured by more competitive LNG markets, new pipeline exports, and increasing domestic gas demand.
