Indonesia promotes use of CCUS technology
The use of clean energies, such as CCUS, has become the primary consideration for ensuring availability, affordability, sustainability and competitiveness to achieve energy sovereignty as well as climate resilience and for a low emission future. carbon.
Jakarta (ANTARA) – The Indonesian government has encouraged the use of carbon capture, use and storage (CCUS) technology to develop rare earth oil and gas fields to reduce the impact of change climate due to emissions from mining activities.
“The use of clean energies, such as CCUS, has become the main consideration for ensuring availability, affordability, sustainability and competitiveness to achieve energy sovereignty as well as climate resilience and for a low emission future. carbon, ”said an official from the Ministry of Energy and Mineral Resources Tutuka. Ariaji noted in a statement quoted here on Thursday.
Ariaji asserted that the energy transition, as the heart of climate change mitigation, plays a key role for Indonesia in reducing carbon emissions and achieving the goal of carbon neutrality by 2060.
The official said that CCUS technology used for energy development and enhanced oil recovery (EOR) has become one of the important discussions in reducing carbon dioxide emissions.
“CCT or CCS and Net Sink clean technologies are really needed to switch to green energy. Gas is a fossil fuel that could become an environmentally friendly energy using CCUS,” he said.

“We observe that green energy in the future will certainly be renewable energy. To this end, we need an energy transition strategy,” Ariaji noted.
The CCUS application study on rare earth oil and gas fields in Indonesia has been carried out since 2011 in the Gundih field in Central Java, in collaboration with the Bandung Institute of Technology (ITB), J -Power and Janus.
In addition, the EOR carbon dioxide project carried out on the Sukowati field by Pertamina EP, a subsidiary of the Pertamina state-owned oil company, Japan Petroleum Exploration (Japex), with the Lemigas Research and Development Center of Oil & Gas Technology , a department under the Ministry of Energy and Mineral Resources.
Other projects include the carbon dioxide source-sink match by ITB and Janus as well as the CCUS / CO2-EGR project in Tangguh by BP Berau LTD and ITB.
The potential emissions contained in CCUS from Gundih, Sukowati and Tangguh are expected to be around 48 parts per million of carbon dioxide.
