Indonesia’s oil output is expected to rise to 870,000 barrels per day in 2014, up about 30,000 bpd from this year’s target, the head of the country’s energy regulator said on Friday.

 

If Exxon Mobil’s Cepu block starts producing by October, next year’s production could rise further to 900,000 bpd, SKKMigas Chairman Rudi Rubiandini told reporters.

Southeast Asia’s largest economy has often missed annual oil production targets, which have gradually fallen from a peak of around 1.6 million bpd in 1995.
