The upstream oil and gas industry holds an important role as one of the economic drivers in Indonesia, especially for the local communities in the areas where the oil and gas operations are located. This industry creates multiplier effects for other business sectors but unfortunately, the Covid-19 pandemic has been affecting the industry and its contribution to the local economy.
The Covid-19 pandemic has severely reduced the global demand for oil. But the low oil demand as well as the low crude oil price does not instantly cut down the fuel price since there is a refining process that takes place in between the upstream and downstream sectors.
