Q:

A:

 Production Sharing Contract (PSC), how does it work?

An original PSC is awarded to explore for and to establish commercial production. The PSC is usually awarded for a period of 30 years, subject to discovery of commercial quantities of oil and gas within a certain period. In each PSC, the contractor and SKK Migas share the total production in any given period in a ratio agreed between the two under the terms of that PSC. The contractor generally has the right to recover all funding and development costs, as well as operating costs, in each PSC against available revenues generated by the PSC after deduction of first tranche petroleum (“FTP”). All PSCs in Indonesia are sublect to DMO under which the contractor is required to supply, at a reduced price, usually 25% of market price.
