WORKSHOP "TECHNOLOGY IMPLEMENTATION ON CARBON SEQUESTRATION AND MONITORING IN GUNDIH AREA, EAST JAVA PROVINCE, INDONESIA"
Date: May 16, 2011
Venue: Auditorium East Campus Center Building, Institute of Technology Bandung - Indonesia
- Institut Teknologi Bandung
- Kyoto University
- Kyoto University Global COE Program "Global Center for Education and Research on Human Security Engineering for Asian Megacities"
- Fukada Geological Institute
Number of attendants: 87 persons
The purpose of the workshop is to bring together many scientists from many universities, research centers and companies from Indonesia and Japan who involved in a collaborative research project of “Pilot Study for Carbon Sequestration and Monitoring in Gundih Area, Indonesia” and to share the recent research achievements and its contribution for the communities which has a strong relationship with human security engineering issues. It is hoped that this workshop will expand the network for human security between Indonesia and Japan and strengthen the international cooperation.
In addition, this workshop is the initial preparation to implement the new technologies of CO2 Capture and Storage (CCS) in Gundih area. The area is a gas field operated by Pertamina EP, a national oil company of Indonesia.
Workshop of“Technology Implementation on Carbon Sequestration and Monitoring in Gundih Area, East Java Province, Indonesia”, was held at East Campus Center Building- ITB, on May 16, 2011. This workshop was organized by ITB, KU and KU Global COE on Human Security Engineering for Asian Megacities. The participants of workshop are researchers, practitioners and students. They are not only from ITB and KU but several participants from other institutions and companies of Indonesia and Japan (Pertamina, JAPEX, RITE, Fukada Geological Institute, Waseda University). There were 10 presentations which was attended by 87 participants.
The workshop was opened by Dean of Faculty of Mining and Petroleum Engineering ITB (Prof. Sri Widiyantoro). The keynote speech is the leader of CCS Project from Kyoto University (Prof. Toshifumi Matsuoka) and the Vice President of ITB for Research and Innovation (Prof. Wawan Gunawan). Prof. Toshifumi Matsuoka presented about Carbon Dioxide Capture and Storage (CCS) and Prof. Wawan Gunawan presented The Challenging, Excellent, and Committed Technology in ITB regarding the CCS research project. The workshop participants seemed very enthusiastic. This is indicated by many questions, such as the CCS development, potential and opportunity in Indonesia.
After keynote speech session, there were two presentation sessions. In the first presentation session, Mr. Ridho Affandi presented the Geological and Geophysical Study of Gundih Area–East Java, Dr. Djedi S. Widarto presented The Possibility of CCS Study for Central Processing Plant (CPP) at Gundih Area-East Java, Mr. Tohru Satoh presented the Strategy & Technology for Implementing CCS and Dr. Ziqiu Xue presented about Application of Seismic Rock Physics in CO2 Geological Sequestration. Whereas in the second presentation, Dr. Tutuka Ariadji presented Carbon Capture and Storage - A Techno-Economic Perspective, Dr. Toru Takahashi presented Rock Physics Model for Interpreting Dynamic and Static Moduli of Mudstones as a Cap Rock for CO2 Sequestration, and Mr. Jun Mikami presented Reservoir simulation at Tomakomai CCS site. There was a question and answer session at the end of each presentation session. The workshop was closed by Prof. Wawan Gunawan. He mentioned that the comprehensive thoughts from all the presenters were very interesting and it could be used to arrange the work plan for research project of CCS technologies implementation in Gundih Area.
After a successful workshop conducted, there were several meetings on 17-20 May 2011 between the Indonesia and Japan delegation to discuss the preparation of this CCS Pilot Project.
