Indonesia needs to change to stay attractive.

Feb 26, 1997 01:00 AM

Indonesia plans to bring two gas trains onstream in Irian Jaya by 2003-2004, the president of Arco Indonesia said.Arco holds 80 % and 40 % in the Wiriagar and Berau blocks in Bituni Bay, Irian Jaya, the western half of New Guinea island. Kanematsu holds the remaining 20 % in Wiriagar and 12 % in Berau, which is also held by Occidental Petroleum with 22.86 % and Nippon Oil Co 17.14 %.
Codron said although Indonesia presents an attractive target for selective upstream investments and has strived to remain competitive, Indonesia may consider some changes to attract large upstream investors. "The ability to adapt to change in order to remain competitive is paramount," he said. The four changes he recommended were more incentives for investment in marginal fields and enhanced oil recovery (EOR), tax consolidation, transparency in domestic pricing and simplifying administrative prices.
