In an attempt to minimize risks and at the same time to gather the needed capital which the E & P companies should spend, they form Joint Operation to achieve their aims.

To enable to operate, do proper recording and make correct reporting of your company, either as an operator or non operator as the case may be for your company, each of you should know the basic legal form of the Joint Venture Agreement, Joint Operating Agreement, Accounting Procedure and any other matters that your company has entered an agreement into.

Your company may enter into various Joint Venture Agreements, through Farm-outs, Unitization and any other types, which is known as the pooling of capital concept. The pooling of capital concept bring into facts that during the venture period, there are equalization amongst the parties, the operator and non-operator and possibly with the other non-operator. Such equalization can be in the form of cash equalization, disproportionate spending equalization and/or equalization as a result of re-determination of interest.

Through Joint Operation, your company may operate internationally and operate under various different fiscal systems, and even-though that the fiscal system used in Indonesia is the Production Sharing Agreement, it is good for you to know the other type of the fiscal systems for comparison.
