This class will review the Petroleum Resource Management System (PRMS) and the guidelines for reporting reserves and resources and will present a number of industries best-practices for assessing those reserves and resources. However, in certain country has several particular aspects that logically reasonable to apply classification in different implementations. Therefore, the course provides some case studies that able as good examples how they manage resources become valuable assets.


This two-days class provides an overview of portfolio management, reserve and resource reporting and methods and best practices for assessing and risking those reserves and resources. Course will be delivered in bilingual English and Bahasa Indonesia.


  1. Learn the Petroleum Resource Management System (PRMS) for reporting and booking reserves and resources
  2. Learn Indonesia’s Reserves and Resources Classification
  3. Understand the fundamentals of Portfolio Management.
  4. Understand the fundamentals of calculating volumes
  5. Learn the difference between risk and uncertainty in estimating reserves and resources, and how to evaluate both.
  6. Understand uncertainty analysis application for reserves estimation in development planning.


Geoscientists, reservoir engineers, and team leaders involved with assessing and booking reserves and resources.


The reserves and resources booked by a company are the foundation of the company’s value. This class will help ensure that the assessment of reserves and resources are as accurate as the data allows and are reported in a manner consistent with industry recommended standards.

Arya Disiyona is a Geologist with 20 years experiences. As geologist, Arya has strong skill in sequence stratigraphy, reservoir characterization, build geocellular model, reserves estimation, and field development. The first 5th years career as consultant geologist in Lemigas made some geology model to several clients in Indonesia. Then after gained the wealth experience of oil/gas exploration an operatorship from Kangean Energy Indonesia (2007-2008). By end of 2008 it led him to joined BPMIGAS (now SKK Migas) and was started as a Dev. Geologist. His responsible are to provide subsurface/technical evaluation of POD, EOR, and gas development. He always works in a team with different group both exploration or development.

Currently, Arya is Sr. Manager of Gasfield Development in SKK Migas (Special Task Force for Upstream Oil & Gas Activity of Government of Indonesia). He leads a team who should to evaluates Gas Project proposal from Oil and Gas Company (the Operator) in Indonesia. The review includes geological assessment, reserves estimations, field development scenario, and economic calculation.

Arya has produced book of Revision-2 and Revision-3 of PTK (Pedoman Tata Kerja) Plan of Development. This book is necessary as a guideline for all Operators that willing to propose field development planning to Government. In technical aspect he as well as has several subsurface papers and uncertainty analysis for reserves estimation.
