The old well management contract is based on Ministerial Regulation (Permen) Energi Mineral Resources (ESDM) No. 1 of 2008 concerning Guidelines for the Exploitation of Mining Oil and Natural Gas at Old Wells. Cooperation contract operator with PT BBS conducted on August 16, 2017 ago. PT BBS is expected to produce 500 BOPD of crude oil.
