INDUSTRY.co.id - Jakarta - The Ministry of Energy and Mineral Resources (ESDM) conducted a test of seismic survey vessel Geomarin III in Sunda Strait Waters to explore the potential of natural resources (oil and gas) and minerals under the sea.

"This is a trial or 'sea trial' before offering detailed data on potential work areas (WK) that can be utilized by investors or Contractors Cooperation Contracts (KKKS)," said Head of ESDM Research and Development Agency F.X. Sutijastoto, Sunday (6/8/2017)

He explained, Geomarin III ship is a ship with advanced technology that is able to detect the potential of energy reserves either in the form of oil or gas on the seabed.

In addition, it can also detect the presence of mineral deposits such as gold and copper in the waters of Indonesia. "Our system of data mining through surveys for initial identification of KKKS, then to do the exploration was submitted to his own KKKS," he said.

This "Sea Trial" is a preparation for the identification of sedimentary basin research to support the preparation of oil and gas (oil) oil and gas (Oil) Arafura, Papua and OTEC (Ocean Thermal Energy Conversion) areas in Lembata waters, East Nusa Tenggara (NTT).

In this Sea Trial, this is also conducted trials of survey equipment used for geological and geophysical data collection.

One of the survey method used in this research is 2D Seismic Survey. The 2D seismic survey is a survey using multi-channel seismic equipment to determine the potential geological resources and potential extent of the petroleum system.

In addition to 2D seismic, a survey was conducted using a marine gravity meter. This equipment has its own attractiveness, because the results obtained are data on the model and dimensions of oil and gas basin, so that will add to the understanding of petroleum system which is an important concept in the field of oil and gas. This equipment opens a great opportunity for PPPGL services in the field of oil and gas exploration.

The initial geological information can save the financing spent on exploration. With limited data and information on geological and geophysical arrangements, especially in the Arafura Sea region, south of Papua, the sediment basin research conducted by PPPGL is expected to add data and information to support the preparation of WK Oil and Gas.
