James Burns, President of Petrolia Energy stated, "Being able to find an acreage package of this size and quality, was just too good to pass up. These Indonesian assets are truly special."

That's ninety-one million barrels of oil equivalent, on a portion of over 948,000 net acres onshore - North Sumatra. Petrolia will seek local financial and operating partners in the region to develop these reserves.
