The range of hills area, surrounded by hardwood tress in Wonocolo village, in the subdistrict of Kedewan , which is the regency of Bojonegoro, East Java , is known as the field of eternal petroleum. When the Dutch left the area, they also left behind hundreds of oil wells. From those hundreds, about fifty of the Dutch-inherited wells are still active. And this region is known as "Blok Wonocolo".
