(SUMATERA) Petroleum Geology of South Sumatra Basin Field Trip, Palembang - Lake Ranau, South Sumatra
The South Sumatra basin is one of the major sedimentary basins of oil and gas producers in Sumatra Island, Indonesia, with mining history spanning until 1895. At its western edge, volcanic activity sometimes takes place very catastrophically, leaving traces of giant eruptions. This field trip invites the participants to visit key locations to learn the rocks of the basin that are key elements of the growing oil and gas system and to see how a very powerful process of volcanism has occurred in the past. Participants will be also guided to local tourism destinations in Palembang and Lake Ranau.
