October 17 -26, 2012 │Washington, DC, Houston TX, and Pittsburgh, PA

The Indonesia Unconventional Gas Development (UGD) Reverse Trade Mission (RTM) took place from October 17 to October 26, 2012 and included stops in Washington, DC, Houston, TX, and Pittsburgh, PA.  The delegation of twelve delegates was comprised of senior representatives from various offices within the  Ministry of Oil and Gas and state owned companies active in the energy and power sector, and private Indonesian companies with commercial interest in shale and unconventional gas development. The RTM focused on introducing the delegates to U.S. Government and Industry leaders in the unconventional gas sector to increase their understanding of key trends and to learn about best practices for plans and approaches that would ensure effective and sustainable development of coalbed methane (CBM) and shale gas in Indonesia. The RTM also brought the delegation together with U.S. companies providing technologies, goods, and services for unconventional gas resource development and related infrastructure facilities. Participants learned and shared ideas on dealing with challenges and opportunities ranging from environmental impacts and other risks to the prevalent regulatory issues.  National issues and impacts relating to the development of unconventional gas were also discussed.  The RTM included two roundtable meetings – one in Washington, DC held at the USTDA headquarters building with a government affairs and policy/regulatory focus and a second event targeted toward a commercial audience that took place in Houston, TX.
