Under the Decrees of the Minister of Energy and Mineral Resource (ESDM) issued in 2008, PT. Supreme Energy was assigned to conduct pre-feasibility studies in Gunung Rajabasa geothermal prospects.
This assignment were completed in 2009 within the time specified in the decrees. The studies have successfully estimated the possible reserves and established the concession area for each of the prospects based on the conceptual models constructed by the integration of geological, geophysical, geochemical data and prior wells.
Geotechnical data was added in order to identify any constraints or hazards for development of the field. The earth science data acquired during the pre-feasibility studies was used to estimate resource size of the prospects.
Following the tender award of the Rajabasa concessions to the Supreme Energy Consortium in early 2010, a mining area license (IUP or Ijin Usaha Pertambangan) was issued to the project company.
