Investment in Indonesia's Oil & Gas Sector Fell in Q1-2017
Investment in Indonesia's oil and gas sector remained bleak in the first quarter of 2017. The key reason why oil and gas companies are still reluctant to invest in any exploration and expansion projects is the low crude oil price that remains below the USD $50 per barrel level. In Q1-2017 investment in Indonesia's oil and gas sector fell 4.1 percent year-on-year (y/y) to USD $2.57 billion. Indonesia's upstream oil and gas regulator SKK Migas targets to attract a total of USD $12.87 billion worth of investment in the oil and gas sector in 2017.
