INDUSTRY.co.id - Jakarta - The condition of oil and gas business in Indonesia is currently considered not support the investment climate. The Factor, because of the legal uncertainty contained in the Oil and Gas Act (Oil and Gas) itself. On that basis, the Special Forces Working Unit (SKK) of Oil and Gas urges the Government to immediately revise the Oil and Gas Law to revolutionize the industry's governance in the country.

According to Bambang, investment in oil and gas industry in Indonesia in the period of two to three years has decreased considerably. This is evident from the interest of investors to participate in the auction of working area in Indonesia which is still very minimal.

"Therefore, we hope that the Minister of Energy and Mineral Resources can quickly formulate a revision of the Oil and Gas Law and this revision is important to provide legal certainty for foreign investors to invest in the oil and gas sector in the country," he said.
