Jakarta – The era of disruption 4.0 has a significant impact on the oil and gas industry. According to McKinsey Energy Insights – the Global Energy Perspective in 2019, the demand for petroleum will decrease in growth and will reach its peak in 2030. Whereas the demand for gas will continue to increase in demand and will reach its peak in 2035. According to the 2018’s laporan SKK Migas, Indonesia had experienced a different phenomenon wherein the consumption of petroleum continues to increase while the level of production continues to decrease, which creates a profound gap. In result, these 2 phenomena impose a challenge for the oil and gas companies that operates Indonesia to search for a new source for oil and gas to reduce the gap. However, these companies need to start thinking of new and renewable energy as alternatives to petroleum and gas as to anticipate the demand that will continue in the next 10-15 years. Both challenges require the oil and gas companies that operates in Indonesia to make various adjustments in their departments for the years to come, especially the role of the Human Resource.
To respond to these demands, Universitas Pertamina along with SKK Migas conduct 2 Focus Group Discussion (FGD) with the topic “Redefining the Future of HR in Oil and Gas Industry: Challenges and Opportunities in Indonesia.” The first being on the 15th of January 2020 that was held at Ruang Simatupang 1, Hotel Aston Priority Simatupang, and the second being held on the 22nd of January 2020 at Ruang Merapi, Hotel Sultan.
