The Indonesian Petroleum Association (IPA) Annual Conventions have highlighted the achievements and challenges of Indonesia’s oil and gas industry since 1972. The IPA Convention & Exhibition provides an important forum for exchanging knowledge and ideas through interaction among scientists, engineers, government officials, academics, and other professionals. The contributions of PSC contractors, service companies, suppliers, universities, and research institutes have been vital to the success of the Convention & Exhibition.

The IPA has published convention proceedings since its inception. The archive of over 2,600 technical papers constitutes the principal reference for the oil and gas industry in Southeast Asia. The 39th IPA Convention strives to continue this tradition with a strong Technical Program of oral and poster papers. The Proceedings Volume will be provided to all participants in CD-ROM format. Hardcopies will be available for order.

The 39th IPA Convention & Exhibition will be held in the Jakarta Convention Center 20 – 22 May 2015. The Technical Program Committee (TPC) is issuing this formal CALL FOR PAPERS to solicit potential papers and posters suitable for the Technical Program of the convention.
