Geologically, Indonesia occupies one of the most complicated areas on Earth. The archipelago is made up of three major crustal plates and numerous micro-plates of both continental and oceanic origins. This tectonic setting provides Indonesia with numerous sedimentary basins and inter-basin areas where petroleum accumulations are either proven or possible.
Petroleum resources of Indonesia has been explored and produced for more than 140 years. Yet, the Indonesia’s oil and gas potential and production are still important regionally. National and multi-national companies are still venturing these resources. The potential of unexplored resources is still large in both Western and Eastern Indonesia. Indonesia may also be the most diverse country in the world with at least 50 proven and probably more than 100 speculative petroleum systems. Controlled largely by the different geological regimes of Western and Eastern Indonesia, the pattern of petroleum accumulations differs across the archipelago. Understanding the geological evolution and how the various sedimentary basins developed, are the keys to understanding the petroleum systems of the sedimentary basins.
Within this two-day course, current knowledge on petroleum geology of Indonesia will be summarized and discussed. The course materials are based on recent concepts within individual basins. Detailed discussions will be made for producing basins. New ideas on the possibilities of petroleum accumulation in under-explored areas will be presented. Current status of the petroleum exploration and production in Indonesia will be addressed.
The course will provide participants with condensed tour of petroleum geology of Indonesia. After the course, the participants will know regional tectonics, stratigraphy, petroleum system, petroleum geology, and exploration-production status of individual basins in Indonesia. This knowledge is important, especially for new venture evaluation. The course will benefit both junior and senior petroleum professionals.

ABOUT THE INSTRUCTOR
Awang Harun Satyana is a Sr. Manager Exploration Assessment and Resource Management of BPMIGAS (Government of Indonesia Executive Body for Upstream Oil and Gas Business). He graduated from the Geology Department of the University of Padjadjaran, Bandung in 1989. He has been working for oil industry for 22 years. He worked for PERTAMINA from 1990-2002, assigning various positions as Exploration Geologist and Regional Geologist. In 2002, Awang joined BPMIGAS, and has assigned various technical and managerial positions.
Awang has actively serviced international and national geological societies by contributing papers, articles, keynote talks, guest lectures and courses. There have been totally 250 publications he made (79 full papers for conferences, 35 articles for journals, 106 invited presentations, keynotes and guest lectures, 24 course manuals, 6 chapters in six books). Several of his papers got awards as the best papers and presentations. As appreciation for his great contribution and dedication to geosciences, “Lasut Award” from IAGI and "HAGI Award" from HAGI were awarded to Awang in 2002 and 2008, respectively.
Awang was the first Indonesian geologist assigned by the AAPG (American Association of Petroleum Geologists) to be the Associate Editor for the AAPG Bulletin (during 2006-2007). Awang is an active member of IAGI (Indonesian Association of Geologists), IPA (Indonesian Petroleum Association), AAPG (American Association of Petroleum Geologists), HAGI (Indonesian Association of Geophysicists), and IATMI (Indonesian Society of Petroleum Engineers).
Awang has taught this course to students and professionals for the last seven years. The materials are continually updated each year to involve recent progresses on petroleum geology of Indonesia. Strong knowledge on many subjects and wide experience on many basins in Indonesia will provide him a good command of teaching the course.
