This paper provides an overview of the current status of CCS in Indonesia and includes a review of the recently released Indonesia CCS Study Working Group report on the potential for CCS in Indonesia, collaboration between LEMIGAS, KLH, PT PLN, WEC, Shell and the British Embassy. The report found that there is significant potential for CCS in Indonesia, but also a number of barriers to overcome. This paper also considers regulations and legal aspects for the Indonesian government to consider for operation and long-term stewardship of CCS projects. It also includes a discussion of the options available to Indonesia to fund CCS demonstration and deployment domestically, with consideration towards the clean development mechanism (CDM) or other financing mechanisms, development banks, etc. Other opportunities including EOR and utilization of CO2 are discussed as nearer term opportunities to deploy pilot projects. The paper concludes with a discussion of the overall current status, awareness and support for CCS in Indonesia and international collaboration on CCS including the role for Indonesia.
