Shale gas resources in Indonesia may be substantial but have not been
subject to much independent assessment. One study by the Bandung
Technical University estimated the country’s “resource” at ...
(Wah 2011). The Indonesian government Ministry of Energy and
Mineral Resources advertises 8.7 GToe of “shale gas potential” (Focus
Reports 2012). Indonesia’s coal bed methane resources appear to be large,
exceeding those of the PRC, but have seen little development because
of policy restrictions and are surrounded by uncertainty. One study
suggests that the technically recoverable resource spread throughout the
archipelago might be 1,300 GToe, an amount equal to one-third of the
country’s conventional gas reserves. The most promising area is South
Sumatra, where 4,800 MToe of gas in place was estimated to exist in
coal bed seams at depths of 300–1,000 meters. The Barito and Kutei coal
beds of Kalimantan are estimated to contain similar quantities of gas
(Figure 2.3.9).Were Indonesia to achieve a reserves-to-production ratio comparable
to the PRC’s, it would be producing about 50 Mtoe/year of coal bed
methane gas by 2030.
