THE TEAM


TERT  has a strong support team in Indonesia through IEP where geologists and geoscientists can be called to support projects both in Indonesia and throughout South East Asia. The type of work we do does not require a large team on the ground as most of our work is done in various locations around the world.


The head office in New York fully support operations in South East Asia where the people on the ground have country and culture knowledge and experience. Exploration, in theory, is standard and is applicable anywhere in the world;  the way of working in different countries is not.
