Scottish Energy Delegation visit to Malaysia and Indonesia

Scottish Energy Delegation visit to Malaysia and Indonesia — 10 to 24 September

Join Scottish Development International (SDI) for an energy delegation visit to Malaysia and Indonesia in September 2022. The visit will involve energy-transition-focused activities centred around Oil & Gas Asia (OGA) 2022 in Kuala Lumpur and IPA Convex in Jakarta. Learn more and register your interest.

Scottish Development International (SDI) intends to lead a delegation of Scottish energy companies on a two-leg business development visit to Malaysia and Indonesia from 10 to 24 September 2022.

The Malaysia leg will be centred around the flagship energy event, Oil & Gas Asia (OGA) 2022, which takes place in Kuala Lumpur from 13 to 15 September.

The Indonesia leg will be centred around the Indonesian Petroleum Association’s annual convention and exhibition (IPA Convex) in Jakarta from 21 to 23 September.

There will be an energy transition-focused Scottish Pavilion at both OGA and IPA Convex. The conference will also focus on elements of energy transition as part of the official programmes.

SDI will provide other energy transition business development opportunities outside of the flagship shows, working closely with the British High Commission in Malaysia, British Embassy in Indonesia, British Chambers of Commerce in both locations, GlobalScots and the EIC in Malaysia, as well as senior-level engagements with government stakeholders.

The market opportunity

Hydrogen and CCS

Hydrogen remains a nascent industry in Malaysia and Indonesia. But there's optimism about how both countries can decarbonise their transport and power systems by adopting hydrogen as a clean fuel while also generating enough surplus for export to the rest of the region.

On CCS, there's significant potential for offshore carbon storage and the national oil companies of both countries have set up teams to study this market, with Scotland’s Acorn project being a commonly cited reference.


Petronas and Pertamina have set out long-term roadmaps for decommissioning ageing offshore oil and gas assets, and both are actively looking to learn from experience in the North Sea.

In its latest Activity Outlook for 2022 to 2024, Petronas states that it's looking to decommission two platforms, two pipelines and 31 wells in 2022. Indonesia’s upstream regulator, SKK Migas, has also established an initial seven-year decommissioning campaign to decommission seven offshore platforms.


Indonesia is regarded as one of the world’s largest geothermal markets, with a potential capacity of 29GW, of which only 2GW has been installed.

Pertamina is the lead developer through its subsidiary Pertamina Geothermal Energy, which is set for an IPO in the next year, while there are also private developers such as Supreme Energy that are operating and developing small sites (below 100MW).

Package and programme

As part of the programme, SDI will support you every step of the way. The team will conduct an initial one-to-one meeting with all successful applicants to understand objectives and tailor support for your trip. You'll also receive support from the GlobalScot network, which can help with preparation.

As part of the Scotland delegation, you'll have access to the Scotland Pavilion at both shows, which you can use to meet with contacts, network and base yourself from.

We'll also be arranging site visits in both locations, networking events and a one-to-one meeting programme with your target prospects in each market.

We'll be available to provide pre-mission briefing guidance, on the ground assistance and follow-up support once you've returned from the trip.

Eligibility criteria

We have space available for up to 12 Scottish energy companies focused on decommissioning, hydrogen, CCUS and geothermal. Companies not operating in this space will not be considered for a place.

Ideally, successful applicants will have relatively proven energy transition solutions, rather than early-stage technologies that are looking for demonstration opportunities.

SDI would prefer applications from companies that have the right risk appetite and capacity to not only win but service contracts in Malaysia and Indonesia. They're also looking for companies with the willingness to potentially place their people in market, or set up agency agreements or joint ventures with local companies.


All successful applicants will contribute £800 plus VAT towards the cost of the mission. Applicants will be expected to cover the costs of their own flights, accommodation and expenses while in market.
