The overlap of the operational area of ​​the upstream oil and gas industry with forest areas in the Rokan Block as the main contributor to 40 percent of the national oil, threatens the contribution that can be given to national oil needs. This study aimed to analyze the implementation of tenure amnesty to resolve tenurial conflicts in the upstream oil and gas and forest areas. Descriptive analysis was carried out by using the IRAC reasoning scheme, namely issue (I), rule of law (R), analysis (A), and conclusion (C) as forming policy analysis. The findings of this study showed that there were two solutions to resolve tenure conflicts in r upstream oil and gas industrial land and forest areas, namely IPPKH (Borrowing and Use of Forest Areas Permits) and tenure amnesty. Tenure amnesty is better mechanism than IPPKH both socially, economically and institutionally. The presence of the upstream oil and gas industry through tenure amnesty in forest areas, can improve the performance of ecosystem management through harmonization of operations that is followed up by collaborative program.
