JAKARTA, Dec 12 (Reuters) - Indonesia expects spending in its upstream oil and gas sector to reach $22.2 billion in 2015, a senior official at the upstream regulator (SKKMigas) said, 13 percent less than the amount budgeted for this year.

Energy firms and the regulator had set the expenditure figure to reach a 2015 oil lifting target of 850,000 barrels per day (bpd), SKKMigas deputy chairman Johannes Widjonarko told Reuters, below the 2015 budget target of 900,000 bpd.
