    Increasing number and area of oil palm plantation in peat soil. South Sumatra need certain attention in relation to environmental changes. Planting oil palm in abondoned and degraded peat soil is expected to reduce further degradation due to fires. Current research was conducted in PT Gading Cempaka Oil Palm Plantation Area, Ogan Komering Ilir District, South Sumatra Province, and starting from October 2012 to February 2013. Winrock Equation and World Agroforestry Centre field practice were used consecutively to determine total number of sampling sites and to measure some parameters on oil palm. Result of research showed that Biomass of oil palm plant at the ages 8, 10, 12 and 14 months are 180.64 g, 385.31 g, 595.80 g and 730.72 g. CO2 fixation at the same age are respectively 273.53; 593.48; 936.91 and 1105.06 grams per plant. The highest biomass at the samet age are respectively on the stem, trunk, stems and stems. Biomass at the age of 26 to 56 months are 25.961 up to 269.235 kg per plant or approximately 3.375 to 35.001 tons per ha. Carbon sequestration ranged from 11.942 to 123.848 kg C per plant, equivalent to 1.553 to 16.11 tonnes C per ha. Ability of CO2 fixation in plants aged 26, 38 and 56 months are ranged from 43.788 to 454.110 kg CO2 e per plant, equivalent to 5,692 up to 59.034 tons CO2 e per ha. The age of plant has a significant effect on plant biomass (y = 0.024 e 1.4643 x fixation (y = 0.0068 e, R2 = 0.9038), carbon mass (y = 0.014 e 1,4643x, R2 = 0.9038).1, 4643x, R2 = 0.9038) and CO2
