Circumstances:
On approach to Samarinda, the crew was cleared to track direct to left downwind for runway 04. The controller informed them that the wind was 060 degrees at 12 knots. During the final approach for runway 04, the left ECU (Engine Control Unit) light illuminated followed by low oil pressure and torque indications. The captain decided to go around, divert to Balikpapan-Sepingan Airport (BPN) which was 92 km (50 NM) to the South. He carried out the engine shut-down procedure. They commenced the climb to 4000 ft with the left engine inoperative. Approximately 16 Nm from Balikpapan Airport, while climbing through 3,800 feet, the right ECU light illuminated, immediately followed by low oil pressure and low torque indications. The right engine then failed. The crew broadcast a MAYDAY to Balikpapan Approach and decided to conduct a forced landing into a clear field in the Samboja area, about 16 Nm from the Balikpapan Airport.
