Carbon dioxide for enhanced oil recovery (CO2 EOR) can magnify oil production substantially while a consistent amount of the CO2 injected remains sequestrated in the reservoir, which is beneficial for reducing the greenhouse gas (GHG) emission. The success of CO2 EOR sequestration depends on the proper sources-sinks integration. This paper presents a systematic approach to pairing the CO2 captured from industrial activities with oil reservoirs in South Sumatra basin for pilot project. Inventories of CO2 sources and oil reservoirs were done through survey and data questionnaires. The process of sources-sinks matching was preceded by scoring and ranking of sources and sinks using criteria specifically developed for CO2 EOR and sequestration. The top candidate of CO2 sources are matched to several best sinks that correspond to added value, timing, injectivity, containment, and proximity. Two possible scenarios emerge for the initial pilot where the CO2 will be supplied from the gas gathering station (GGS) while the H3 and F21 oil fields as the sinks. The pilot is intended to facilitate further commercial deployment of CO2 EOR sequestration in the South Sumatera basin that was confirmed has abundant EOR and storage sinks as well as industrial CO2 sources.
