"We are carrying out aggressive exploration activities both to anticipate the natural decline and boost production," said Budi.

He added that the company planned to drill 21 exploration wells this year. These exploration activities are estimated to cost the company 23 million dollars, including 2 million dollars for seismic survey.

PetroChina has set targets to produce as much as 106,000 barrels of oil equivalent per day (BPD) is operation in Indonesia, up from 104,000 BPD in 2009.

PetroChina Company Limited is part of the restructuring of China National Petroleum Corporation (CNPC).
