The quake hit the region early morning and the epicentre, with a depth of 121 km under sea bed, was at 155 km northwest of Maluku Tenggara Barat of Maluku province, reported Xinhua citing an agency official.
"We do not issue a tsunami warning. So far there is no report of damage as the centre of the quake was deep," he said.
Indonesia sits on a vulnerable quake-prone zone called the Pacific Ring of Fire.
