The purpose of the fourth CCS symposium is to discuss the study results on geological and geophysical data in Gundih gas field and to prepare the next step regarding to CCS implementation in Gundih Area, Indonesia. The main researchers involving in this project from Indonesian and Japanese universities, research centers, and companies have gathered in this symposium to exchange ideas and produce the comprehensive thought and its work plan relating to CCS (Carbon dioxide Capture and Storage) study in Gundih Area.


The symposium has conducted on December 4, 2012 in Ginza Nikko Hotel, Tokyo. This symposium was organized by ITB, KU, and KU Global COE on HSE. There were 8 presentations which were attended by 76 participants.
The Symposium was opened by a leader of CCS Project from Kyoto University (Prof. Toshifumi Matsuoka) and continued with a keynote speech by CCS Project Leader from Indonesian Side - ITB (Prof. Wawan Gunawan). In the opening session, Prof. Toshifumi Matsuoka explained the new waves for CCS in the world, and how this matter affects the prospects for Carbon Capture and Storage in Southeast Asia, especially Indonesia. Moredetail, Prof. Wawan Gunawan explained the international research collaboration on “Pilot Study for Carbon Sequestration and Monitoring in Gundih Area, Java – Indonesia”. He mentioned the big issues for developing clean and sustainable energy, and the contributions that can be given by Indonesian and Japanese Earth Scientist especially in the implementation of carbon capture and storage technology in Indonesia.
After the opening session, there were 6 presentations categorized into 2 (two) topics: (1) Recent topics on CCS in Japan; and (2) Study on geological and geophysical data in Gundih gas field. At the first topic session, Mr. Kohei Akaku presented “the Behavior of CO2 Migration in Super-Critical Condition in Subsurface Porous Media”. Mr. Daiji Tanase presented “the Prediction of CO2 Migration at Tomakomai CCS Demonstration Site”. At the second topic session, Mr. Rio Imanuel Sebayang presented “the Geological Data from Gundih and Surrounding Areas, and Its Potency of CO2 Storage in Shallower Part”. Ms. Ariesty Ratna Asikin presented “the Evaluation of Available Data to Study of the Possibilities of CO2 Shallow Storage in Gundih Field”. Ms. Putri Diah Ekowati presented “the CO2 Storage Prediction at Gundih Using Reservoir Simulation”. The last presenter was Dr. Takeshi Tsuji who presented “the Preliminary Study on the Potential CO2 Storage Sites in the Gundih Field: Strategy for Reservoir Modeling”. There were questions & answers session at the end of each presentation.
Finally, the fourth CCS symposium was closed by Prof. Toshifumi Matsuoka. After the successful symposium was carried out, there were a communication party which offer to the participants an opportunity to discuss further with all presenters and strengthen the possibility for collaboration on the Gundih CCS project research in the future. Prof. Toshifumi Matsuoka announced that ITB and Kyoto University will organize the fifth CCS symposium in 2013 at Bali, Indonesia. The audiences also were warmly invited to participate and support the upcoming symposium.
