Oil and Gas Overview

Based on the data, there are 255 blocks of oil and gas working areas in Indonesia. With details of the areas are 134 onshore, 83 offshore blocks, and there are 34 blocks above that are partially onshore and offshore. The 2018 spending for expenditure of oil and gas activities is US $ 9.3 billion. It was much lower than US $ 20 billion at its peak in 2014. But the better price of oil is expected to return the desire for investing more. The daily oil production is 778,800 barrels per day, while gas production is 7.78 million mscfd (metrik square cublic feet daily).


Exploration Production

The Indonesia oil and gas block consists of 87 exploitation blocks and 119 exploration blocks. Where for all of the exploitation, there are 73 blocks in the production stage, and there are 14 blocks in the development phase. Meanwhile for oil and gas exploration, there are 88 blocks in the exploration phase and 31 blocks in the termination stage. While for the non-conventional block (coal methane CBM) consists of 43 active blocks and 6 blocks of termination stage.

Mining in Indonesia is a big business of searching, investigating, mining, processing, selling minerals and rocks, that have economic significance.



Group A

Is a type of mine that has strategic value for the security of the country, for example:

the extraction of energy sources namely coal, petroleum, uranium.

Group B

It is a mine that has a vital value and affects the lives of many people, such as iron, nickel, gold, copper, etc.

Group C

Is that intended for industrial materials such as limestone, andesite, marble, quartz, etc.



Indonesia has 26.2 billion tons of coal reserves. The production reaching 461 million tons per year.

The main producing areas of coal are Southern Sumatera and Kalimantan, especially East Kalimantan and South Kalimantan. Indonesia is the largest exporter of coal with a thermal type (used to fuel steam power plants).  Coal is transported using either trains (southern Sumatera), or via tug and barge through rivers in Kalimantan.  Then transhipment to a large ship by using floating crane.

Solar Power Plant Overview

Conditions in Indonesia strongly support the development of solar-power. This is because the intensity of solar radiation in Indonesia is relatively high and stable, so the solar module gets optimal power throughout for the full year.

The government it self is encouraging the development of clean energy solar power, and at the same time that is overwhelmed by the continued decline in the price of solar panels and storage (batteries).The target capacity of photovoltaic solar power plants (PLTS) in 2025 is 6,400 Megawatts (MW). At present, the installed capacity of PLTS is only 80 MW. So there are still very broad to be achieved.

Sugar Overview

Sugar cane plantations in Indonesia are mostly cultivated by the people as raw material for making sugar. Until 2015, sugar cane plantations for sugar in Indonesia can only be found in 9 provinces, namely North Sumatra, Gorontalo, Lampung, South Sumatra, West Java, DI Yogyakarta, Central Java, East Java and South Sulawesi. Among those 9 provinces, in 2012-2017, East Java is the largest sugarcane producer in Indonesia with the contribution of sugar cane from East Java reaching 48% of Indonesia’s sugarcane production.

Indonesian sugarcane production (as measured in the form of crystalline sugar) in 2016 reached 2.2 million tons from 444.220 ha of sugarcane harvested area. The consumption of sugar in Indonesia in the same year based on the survey results reached 7.5 kg / capita. When viewed on the side of sugar cane trade between countries, Indonesia is known as a sugar importing country. Nevertheless, Indonesia is listed as the eleventh largest sugar producer with the seventh largest harvest area in the world. Sugar consumption in 2018 amounted to 5.088.201 tons and in 2021 is estimated to reach 5.260.479 tons so that a deficit of sugar supply in Indonesia is expected to be about 4 million tons.

Steel Plant Overview

Based on data from the Indonesian Iron and Steel Association (IISIA), investment is currently grow in Indonesia’s steel industry. The prospect of the metal industry subsector is very promising, because of the still low national steel consumption per capita. So that the growth is still very large. In 2018, domestic steel demand is predicted to increase 3.5% to 14.5 million tons, this is driven by so many infrastructure projects. While the capability of the national capacity steel industry is only 8 million tons per year.

While viewed from a regional perspective, national per capita steel consumption is only 46 kilograms (kg). Compare that with neighbour country Malaysia which has penetrated 400 kg per capita, Thailand is above 300 kg per capita, and even Vietnam is close to 200 kg per capita. IISIA predicts the domestic steel market will grow through 20 million tons by 2020.
