Managing oil and gas reserves and resources of Pertamina, an Indonesia state owned energy company, has always been challenging processes as the company's portfolio is sparsely located throughout Indonesia. Moreover, since November 2013 the company has also managed its international assets spread across three regions, namely Africa, Asia, and Middle East. In total, there are ~480 fields and ~870 geological structures with different degree of geological background, environment, uncertainty, and maturity of the fields/projects. Obviously, to cope with all those complexities, Reserves Management Department need to figure out its way to properly manage reserves and resources of the company.
Reserves and resources of oil and gas is a key strategic priority of the company. It is aligned with both portfolio management and development and production of the assets. Company decision in terms of work program and budget is also mainly derived from reserves and resources potential of the projects. Therefore, to obtain a standardized reserves and resources management, the company has launched company guideline which is mainly influenced by SPE Petroleum Resources Management System (SPE-PRMS, 2007). SPE-PRMS is a project-based system, where reserves and resources estimation, categorization, and classification are on project basis. To properly manage all the projects, since 2019, Reserves Management Department introduced a tool named Project Box which enable reserves analyst to properly map all the projects, evaluate the portfolio, and monitor the progress of the project both in development and exploration phase. Furthermore, to be aligned with company's digitalization campaign, all the reserves and resources data, Project Box, and many other strategic information are stored and maintained in an in-house software named Promyst which will be launched in early 2021. This tool will enhance data accessibility for both management and analyst, increase data integrity and security, provide data analysis platform, moreover this software could also generate cost efficiency for the company.
In 2017, along with the final version of the company guideline, the company has fully adapted PRMS. This paper will explain how the company adapt PRMS to its company guideline in which some necessary adjustments took place with respect to company's business processes, the application of Project Box throughout all company's subsidiaries, and implementation of Promyst along with its features and future projection of the software. The result and benefit of implementing those items will be explained in this paper. These extensive works performed by the Reserves Management Department contribute significantly to the company not only for technical but also for commercial aspects therefore promoting a good corporate strategic planning and decision making.
