The aim of this paper is to analyze programs and policies run by national and foreign oil companies that affect the level of the economy of the people in Tjepu. While historical research usually focuses on events that are presented in chronological order, this study will add to the study of linkages between historical agencies/actors and the environment relating to the quality of the economy from generation to generation in the exploration and exploitation of national and foreign oil companies in Tjepu. This study uses historical methods, especially in collecting literature and field data including interviewing a number of people related to oil mining activities. The results of this study indicate that there are positive and negative sides of the existence of national and foreign oil companies operating in Tjepu. The existence of oil companies is opening up employment opportunities for local residents although the number is limited. In addition, the existence of oil companies also encourages the emergence of small businesses such as restaurants and other service businesses. But on the other hand, pollution due to mining activities also affects the health level of the community and pollutes the ground water in Tjepu.
