INDONESIA - Other Provinces.

In addition to the above major zones, there are interesting new discoveries in the Timor Sea, where big oil and gas discoveries have been made. But more of these will be part of East Timor, now getting its independence (see OMT), and Australia (see Vol. 52).

There are gas deposits on the island of Sulawesi which seem to be too small for commercial development. On Sulawesi, a small discovery was made in a reefal play which raised possibilities of future prospects in the complex area of the Banda Arc, lying between Sulawesi and West Irian.

There is a small oil province in southern Kalimantan. In recent years, oil exploration of the Meratus Basin, in Central Kalimantan, was curtailed.

Exploration in the marine areas to the south-west and south of Sumatra and Java which overlie the fore arc basins, productive in Burma, has resulted only in some small gas discoveries and dry holes.

Deep water prospects, considered highly speculative as a drilling campaign in the Lombok Strait was unsuccessful, are now becoming popular following recent discoveries (see exploration section below).
