In a recent presentation by Mr. Indra Sanjaya from the Geological Survey Center, the focus was on exploring Indonesia's natural hydrogen potential, specifically in the Ampana area of Central Sulawesi. Highlighting the geological conditions conducive to the serpentinisation process, which produces natural hydrogen, Mr. Indra discussed preliminary findings from the Tanjung Api site. Gas sampling results indicated promising hydrogen concentrations of 20-35%, raising questions about the formation process, migration mechanisms, and challenges in exploring this novel energy source in Indonesia. The discussion emphasised the need for standardised exploration methods, volume estimation, and innovative approaches for transportation and utilisation in the early stages of natural hydrogen development.
