Awang is a Chief Specialist of SKK Migas (Government of Indonesia Special Task Force for Upstream Oil and Gas Business). After graduated from the Geology Department of the University of Padjadjaran, Bandung in 1989, he worked for PERTAMINA from 1990-2002  assigning various positions as Exploration Geologist and Regional Geologist. In 2002, Awang joined BPMIGAS and since then has assigned various technical and managerial positions, since November 2012  BPMIGAS was continued by SKK Migas.

Awang has actively serviced international and national geological societies by contributing papers, articles, keynote talks, guest lectures and courses. There have been totally 330 publications he made (90 full papers for conferences, 55 articles for journals, 139 invited presentations, keynotes and guest lectures, 40 course manuals, 6 chapters in six books). Several of his papers got awards as the best papers and presentations. As appreciation for his great contribution and dedication to geosciences, “Lasut Award” from IAGI and “HAGI Award” from HAGI were awarded to Awang in 2002 and 2008, respectively.

Awang is so far the only Indonesian geologist assigned by the AAPG (American Association of Petroleum Geologists) to be the Associate Editor for the AAPG Bulletin (during 2006-2007). Awang is a member of IAGI (Indonesian Association of Geologists), IPA (Indonesian Petroleum Association), AAPG (American Association of Petroleum Geologists), HAGI (Indonesian Association of Geophysicists), and IATMI (Indonesian Society of Petroleum Engineers).
