Simeulue has potential of billion barrel hydrocarbon

The government of Simeulue, Nanggroe Aceh Darusalam asked the Ministry of Energy and Mineral Resources to follow up the finding of Agency for the Assessment and Application of Technology (BPPT) about the potential of oil and gas at that area. The researchers from BPPT unintentionally found that location when they studied the impact of tsunami in 2004. Head of Economic Section of Simeulue government, Haili Syamsuddin said that they hope the government will follow up this research as soon as possible. (Bisnis Indonesia, Wed May 28, p. R1)
