Indonesië: Pertamina unit builds new oil rigs in East Java

Pertamina unit builds new oil rigs in East Java

Oil and gas firm Pertamina Hulu Energi West Madura Offshore (PHE WMO) has begun the construction of two oil rigs off the coast of Madura, East Java, in an attempt to increase national oil production. PHE WMO is part of state-owned oil and gas giant Pertamina. The two offshore rigs, PHE-12 and PHE-24, are expected to boost national oil production by 40 percent in 2019. At present, Pertamina only contributes 23 percent to the total national oil production, which amounts to 830,000 barrels of oil per day (bopd). Pertamina president director Dwi Soetjipto said the construction of PHE-12 — which will produce oil — and PHE-24 — which will produce gas — would be a new standard for the firm to explore and exploit oil and gas.

Govt Relaxes Tax Amnesty Rules to Allow More Assets Repatriated

The Finance Ministry has relaxed rules for repatriating assets under government tax amnesty program in order to boost funds flowing into the country.  Amnesty participants can now bring in non-cash assets, like stocks or global bonds, to Indonesia and place them with local custodians. The participants can also use repatriated cash to inject capital into local companies, who will use the fund under its own discretion. Previously, the funds should be invested in local infrastructure projects. Cash repatriation can be done in stages, but the countdown for the three-year lock up period, within which participants cannot move their funds abroad, would start only after all the funds repatriated, Robert Pakpahan, head of the debt management office at Finance Ministry, said over the weekend.
