2B1st_Project_Smart_Explorer_Sales_Pursuit_ToolWithin the Asia-Pacific region, Indonesia popped up on the first half 2013 as one of the most dynamic country  with the major international oil companies (IOCs) BP, Chevron, Eni, GDF-Suez, Inpex, PTTEP, Shell and Total competing to speed up their projects in exploration and production.

With offshore basins rich in natural gas, Indonesia intends to take advantage of the costs challenges in Australia to attract foreign investors.

The projects may be related to new discoveries as well as the expansion and revival of existing maturing oil and gas fields in drilling new wells and in deploying all the technics of the enhanced oil recovery (EOR).

In the light of the experiences made by some companies such as Chevron on the first half of 2013, the success of the development of the oil and gas  sector in Indonesia on the coming years will mostly depend on the stability of the local regulation, especially regarding the protection of the environment.
