Exploration and production
Total has been active in Indonesia for a half century since 1968 as both leading oil and gas operator and investor.
Up to the end of 2017, Total's biggest oil and gas production in Indonesia came from the Mahakam PSC in East Kalimantan, with Total's affiliate "Total E&P Indonesie (TEPI)" holding 50% interest and being the operator of this PSC. This includes the following oil and gas fields:
- South Mahakam
Natural gas produced from these fields was the main contributor to the Bontang facility, one of the largest liquefaction plants in the world.
After the expiration of Mahakam PSC at the end of 2017, TEPI is solely based in Jakarta with tasks to finalize all outstanding actions between TEPI and the Government of the Republic of Indonesia.
In the Makassar Strait (still in the perimeter of East Kalimantan), Total 's affiliate "Total Tengah" held a 22.5% share in Tengah PSC up to 4 October 2018, whereas Total E&P Sebuku (until today) currently holds a 15% share in the Sebuku PSC, partnering with Mubadala Petroleum (as operator) and INPEX South Makassar, Ltd.
Total's E&P affiliates in Indonesia is currently led by a President and General Manager, Arividya Noviyanto, who at the same time is also a Country Chair of Total Indonesia.
