Tak terasa sudah empat tahun kita mengalami defisit perdagangan minyak mentah (crude oil). Ada pun defisit bahan bakar minyak (BBM) atau oil products sudah berlangsung sejak tahun 1997.

Kemerosotan harga minyak tahun 2015 amat menolong perbaikan defisit minyak, dari 27 miliar dollar AS tahun 2014 menjadi 14,4 miliar dollar AS tahun 2015 dan turun lagi menjadi 11 miliar dollar AS tahun 2016.

Memasuki tahun 2017 harga minyak merangkak naik. Bank Dunia memerkirakan harga minyak rata-rata tahun ini naik 28,5 persen dibandingkan  tahun lalu. Akibatnya, defisit minyak Indonesia diperkirakan bakal naik pula. Dampak lainnya yang perlu diantisipasi adalah kenaikan harga BBM yang berdampak terhadap peningkatan laju inflasi.

Ada baiknya pemerintah mendorong Pertamina lebih fokus meningkatkan usaha di hulu untuk menggenjot produksi minyak mentah, agar setidaknya penurunan produksi minyak nasional bisa ditekan.
