Assalammu’alaikum wr. wb
It is an honour for me to welcome you once again to our annual Oil and Gas Production Facility Forum, which was fully supported by SKK Migas since its first inception in 2018. FFPM 2023 this year will be held in Yogyakarta on 29-31 August 2023 with the theme of “Towards a Sustainable Future: Designing, Executing, and Maintaining Safe and Reliable Facilities in the Energy Transition”.
The above theme was chosen in line with the global demand of cleaner energy to ensure the sustainability of our environment and ecosystem. IAFMI as organization of production facilities professionals in oil and gas upstream, midstream, and downstream is committed to bring our community and stakeholders to contribute in this big agenda.
Clean energy era is coming, and our industry can not shy away from it. We need to be prepared with technological and non-technological inventions and innovations. Fossil fuel and clean energy may seem like two opposite poles, but there are spaces in between that need our contributions. It is our moral obligations to produce less carbon emission for a sustainable environment. From IAFMI perspective, one way to achieve this is by designing, constructing, and operating a safe and reliable production facilities.
FFPM is one of the best opportunities for stakeholders (ESDM, SKK Migas, PSC Contractors, Consultants, Contractors, Vendors/ Suppliers and academics) to share ideas, knowledge, lessons learned and best practices according to their respective competencies. Therefore, the participation of all stakeholders, especially the Oil and Gas Supporting Industry, is a significant contribution to the success of this FFPM 2023. We convey our highest appreciation for all stakeholder’s commitment and support for this event.
ABOUT FFPM 2023
The world is moving towards a more sustainable future, and the upstream oil and gas industry must also adapt to this change. The increasing demand for cleaner energy sources requires a shift from traditional oil and gas exploration and production to sustainable and environmentally friendly alternatives.
This transition comes with its own set of challenges, including designing and constructing sustainable facilities, executing new projects, and maintaining existing facilities to meet the changing needs of the industry.
Key stakeholders in upstream oil and gas need to be able to embrace these challenges as opportunities. In the current world of synergy and collaboration, no single player can survive by itself. To support Government of Indonesia commitment of Net Zero Emission by 2060, oil and gas key players needs to contribute by filling the energy demand gap during the transition period using cleaner source of energy and producing less emission from their production facilities.
Several initiatives and pilot project have been commenced in the form of carbon capture and sequestration project and installation of solar panel to supply electricity for the oil and gas plant operation. But there is more that we can do, including designing, constructing and operating a safe, reliable, energy efficient production facilities. In the end our goal is to ensure the sustainability of our operation not only for the business but also for the environment and community.
