This study focuses on geothermal exploration based on fluid-rock geochemistry/geomechanics and aims to compile an overview on geochemical data-rock properties from important geothermal fields in Indonesia. The work will be conducted over the next two years and this paper intends to present the methods and approaches we would like to use. The research carried out in the field and in the laboratory is performed in the framework of the GEOCAP cooperation (Geothermal Capacity Building program Indonesia- the Netherlands). Research along with capacity building will be combined in this Indonesian-Dutch project. The application of petrology and geochemistry accounts to a better understanding of areas where operating power plants exist but also helps in the initial exploration stage of green areas. Because of their relevance and geological setting representing geothermal fields in Java, Sulawesi and the sedimentary basin of central Sumatra have been chosen as areas will be the focus of the study. Operators, universities and governmental agencies will benefit from this approach as it will be applied also to new green-field regions and areas to be tendered.
