The Indonesian Petroleum Association (IPA) Annual Conventions have highlighted the achievements and challenges of Indonesia’s oil and gas industry since 1972. The IPA Convention & Exhibition provides an important forum for exchanging knowledge and ideas through interaction among geoscientists, engineers, government officials, academics, and other professionals. The contributions of Production Sharing Contracts (PSC) contractors, service companies, suppliers, universities, and research institutes have been vital to the success of the Convention & Exhibition. The IPA has published convention proceedings since its inception. The archive of over 3.603 technical papers constitutes a principal reference for the oil and gas industry in Southeast Asia. The 43rd IPA Convention strives to continue this tradition with a strong Technical Program of oral presentations and poster papers, resulting in a Proceedings Volume which will be both archived and provided to all participants in digital format.
