INDUSTRY.co.id - Jakarta - The government through the Ministry of Energy and Mineral Resources (ESDM) has revoked 11 regulations and simplified 7 regulations in the oil and gas subsector to increase investment in the oil and gas subsector (oil and gas).
One of the revoked regulations is the Regulation of the Minister of Energy and Mineral Resources No. 31 of 2013 on Provisions and Procedures for the Use of Foreign Workers and the Development of Indonesian Migrant Workers in Oil and Gas Business Activities.
With the revocation of this Energy and Mineral Resources Regulation, the Directorate General of Oil and Gas no longer publishes recommendations on the Foreign Worker Use Plan (RPTKA) and Permit for Foreign Workers (IMTA).
Director of Development of Oil and Gas Program Budiyanto disclosed, the revocation of ESDM Regulation no. 31 of 2013 does not make the oil and gas sub-sector in Indonesia flooded with foreign workers (TKA), but to reduce the process so that no longer convoluted.
"If the investment is going to go in, the workforce must automatically go in. Should we see together, is it with the withdrawal of the Minister of Energy and Mineral Resources No. 31/2013 we are inundated with TKA? Not really, what the Government expects is that the Candy is revoked in order to revoke the process long and convoluted," said Budi on Socialization of ESDM Candidate no. 13 Year 2018, Thursday (15/3/2018).
With the revocation of this Regulation, the licensing procedure of TKA becomes easier and faster, and supports the increase of investment attractiveness in the oil and gas subsector. Business actors in the field of oil and gas can now apply for permit for direct use of TKA to the Ministry of Manpower.
In the future, the regulation related to the use of foreign workers in Indonesia will be regulated through the Presidential Regulation, which is currently being discussed under the coordination of the Ministry of Manpower.
While waiting for the new regulation, the team of Directorate General of Oil and Gas, SKK Migas, and the Ministry of Manpower, coordinate in the issuance of permit use of foreign workers in the oil and gas subsector.
"The current management of RPTKA and IMTA coordinates with the Ministry of Manpower and Transmigration to deal with the occurrence of no noise.” Business entities just apply to the Ministry of Manpower, there will be an adhoc team that controls it, in a short time, the Directorate General of Oil and Gas and SKK Migas is there and can be issued directly there. This team is temporary," explained Budi.
In addition, the evaluation process for the issuance of RPTKA and IMTA remains one door under the coordination of the Ministry of Manpower. "With the coordination of one door under the Ministry of Manpower, the process of issuing licensing of foreign workers' use becomes easier and faster, and the supervision of foreign workers is also done together and integrated through the online system," added Budi.
