I have received an email from Indonesian’s Oil & Gas mailing list about Petroleum Report of Indonesia, by Embassy of United States of America in Jakarta. After browsing through pages full of statistics, I was particularly interested on an Table about some major events related to oil & gas development in Indonesia.  It was interested to know that the first production was on 1890, during Dutch colonization. See Ref [2] for more information.
