In 2008 a small group of like-minded experts from the coal bed methane and conventional oil & gas industries in Australia and SE Asia respectively formed a company called Coal Gas Solutions, with the initial aim of providing exploration and production services to clients in the Indonesian CBM sector in their quest to unlock and develop the country’s potentially vast CBM resources and deliver them to market. Since then PT Coal Gas Solutions ("CGS") has been established in Jakarta as the company's operational headquarters, and has expanded its market to include clients in the geothermal, shale and conventional oil & gas sectors.
In April 2012, CGS become a subsidiary of PT Timas Suplindo a leading EPIC services provider in Indonesia's onshore and offshore oil and gas sector. This was an important development for both companies and it provides the country's onshore energy sector with a locally owned specialist provider of high performance, fit-for-purpose drilling rig technology and construction servies.
