Surabaya, August 27, 2015 - The Ministry of Energy and Mineral Resources (MEMR) bestowed the Award of Work Safety “Patra Nirbhaya Karya” to PT Medco Energi Internasional Tbk through its subsidiary PT Medco E&P Indonesia and PT Camar Resources Canada (together called "MedcoEnergi"). This award is given due to MedcoEnergi’s success in reaching more than 2,75 million of safe-man hours from 2012 until July 2015 in the operating Kampar Block in Riau and more than 2 million of safe-man hours from 2010 until July 2015 in the operating Bawean Block in East Java. The award ceremony was conducted today, Wednesday (26/8) in Surabaya by Director General of Oil and Gas MEMR I. Gusti Nyoman Wiratmaja Puja to Arif Rinaldi, General Manager of Indonesia West, MedcoEnergi and Dony Noerwahjono, General Manager of Camar Resources Canada.
MedcoEnergi has managed Kampar Block since 1993, a block transfer of Stanvac/Exxon. Since its operation, the Company is determined to continue to operate the field with the best quality and operating performance and continue its commitment in implementing Safety Management System, Occupational Health and Environment, known as PRIME (Performance Integrity of MedcoEnergi). PRIME is the principle of continuous improvement by implementing ISRS7 audit system which is integrated to other audit systems such as ISO 9001: 2000 (Quality Management), ISO 14001: 2004 (Environmental Management), PROPER (Performance Rating Program), OHSAS 18001: 1999 (Health and Safety), PAS 55: 2004 (Asset Management) and the Global Reporting Initiative 2002 (Corporate Social Responsibility).
An achievement of more than 4 years without lost time incident is a difficult accomplishment without the full support and commitment from all levels of workers and contractors in Kampar Block. Erri Setiawan, Indonesia West, Area Project Manager, MedcoEnergi admitted that commitment is achieved through hard effort. Some of which included regular monitoring and evaluation of work safety, starting with the implementation safety talks before carrying out work, traffic evaluation (discussion of potential for vehicle related accidents), the implementation of safety meetings and area safety meetings. "At every one of those meetings, we discuss and analyze the potential for work-related accidents. The award was also given to the workers who have done the job safely, beyond what is required and able to transmit the culture of safety and health in the Company," said Erri.
Meanwhile, Dony Noerwahjono said Bawean Block is an offshore block owned by MedcoEnergi that require an extra degree of caution. Discipline and consistency of the workers in applying the rules of health and work safety should be carried out more carefully because offshore work has unique requirements that must be met, including the need to have a special certificate of sea survival, and offshore production operator certification. "Rules applied in the offshore are very tight. All must obey the rules implemented, whether it is before work, during work, or after work, despite the high level of saturation. Safety issues are the priority and if we run it well, performance in other areas will follow," said Dony.
President Director and CEO of MedcoEnergi, Lukman Mahfoedz is very proud of this achievement. "This award demonstrates MedcoEnergi’s commitment in ensuring the safety of the workers and contractors in operating the field. For Kampar Block, this achievement is another success after holding the Green PROPER award for five consecutive years, awarded by the Ministry of Environment and Forestry in recognition of concern for the environment and local community empowerment," said the CEO of MedcoEnergi.
Lukman also added, “The workers’ efforts in Kampar Block, which are wholly comprised of our countrymen, has managed to arrest the rate of natural decline in oil production. Since late 2013, MedcoEnergi has managed the temporary management as the contract agreement will be transferred to Pertamina at the end of 2015. However, the Company remains willing to operate Kampar Block to the best quality and operating performance and maintain the current production range of 1,400 BOPD, contributing revenues amount of US$37 million to the Government in 2014. We are also ready to cooperate with Pertamina and local governments to manage this block together into the future."(***)

Banggai, 18 August 2015 – PT Medco Energi Internasional Tbk (MedcoEnergi/Company) through Joint Operating Body Pertamina Medco Tomori Sulawesi (JOB PMTS) is pleased to announce that it has completed its first shipment of condensate from Senoro Gas Upstream Production Facility. The condensate cargo was sold on a FOB (Free On Board) Delivery Point basis, where the buyer would responsible for the cost of transporting the condensate. This first lifting is MedcoEnergi’s portion as one of the shareholder of JOB-PMTS, and the next shipments will be allocated for Pertamina Hulu Energi (PHE) and Government’s portion.
The tanker carrying 210,000 barrels of condensate, the Nord Snow Queen, start loading on August 16th 2015 about 05.00 p.m. and left the Senoro Marine Terminal about 02:00 a.m. on August 18, 2015.
Lukman Mahfoedz, CEO and President Director of MedcoEnergi cited, "Today's announcement marks an important milestone in MedcoEnergi’s growth strategy. This shipment is also a testament to the Company’s success in completing the last phase of important commercial aspect of this project. Thereof, we are hoping that the Government of Indonesia would provide more opportunities for National Companies to continue developing energy in Indonesia in the future."
Senoro Upstream Gas Production Facility is operated by the Joint Operating Body Pertamina - Medco E&P Tomori Sulawesi (JOB-PMTS) which comprises of MedcoEnergi (30%), PT Pertamina (50%), and Tomori E&P Ltd (20%). The project was pioneered by MedcoEnergi after acquiring JOB Senoro Tomori block in 2000. Until 2005, MedcoEnergi endeavored to develop this gas field, which has about 1.9 TCF of gas reserves, but in a remote location far from any gas infrastructure or gas market. Total investment of the upstream Senoro is US$1.2 billion. The Senoro Upstream Facility has two Trains of production facility with a total production capacity up to 310 million standard cubic feet per day (MMSCFD) of gas and 8,500 barrel per day (bpd) of condensate.(***)
PT Medco Energi Internasional Tbk (MedcoEnergi/Company) is proud to announce the completion of its two Major Projects' development, namely Senoro Upstream Gas and Senoro Downstream Donggi Senoro LNG (DSLNG) plant. In commemoration of the completion, the two projects were officially inaugurated by the President of the Republic of Indonesia, HE. Joko Widodo, and DSLNG’s first LNG cargo was released for shipment. This momentous achievement imprinted an important milestone for MedcoEnergi as it has succeeded in monetizing the Senoro gas field, which was considered as stranded gas 15 years ago, such that it can supply gas to DSLNG plant among others.
With a capacity of 2.1 million tons per year, DSLNG plant is operated by PT Donggi Senoro LNG (PT DSLNG), a joint venture company between PT Medco LNG Indonesia (11.1%), PT Pertamina Hulu Energi (29%), and Sulawesi LNG Development Ltd (59.9%) - a joint venture company between Mitsubishi Corporation and Korean Gas (KOGAS). This plant has undergone the commissioning phase successfully and safely since October 2014. Meanwhile, Senoro Upstream Gas Production Facility is operated by the Joint Operating Body Pertamina - Medco E&P Tomori Sulawesi (JOB-PMTS) which comprises of MedcoEnergi (30%), PT Pertamina (50%), and Tomori E&P Ltd (20%). The Senoro Upstream Facility has two Trains of production facility with a total production capacity up to 310 million standard cubic feet per day (MMSCFD) of gas and 8,500 barrel per day (bpd) of condensate.
DSLNG is the fourth LNG center in Indonesia and the first of its kind developed under a downstream business structure, separating the upstream gas business structure and downstream LNG processing plant. This separation enhances the economics of Senoro gas field development, which would otherwise be considered marginal, as such that the projects can provide significant contribution to government revenue. In addition, the scheme also benefits the government as the operational risks and investment risks of the LNG plant are borne by PT DSLNG. Furthermore, the government is not burdened by the cost recovery of the LNG plant investment. In due time, the operations of both upstream and downstream businesses may contribute a total revenue of approximately US$ 6.4 billion to the Government of Indonesia, at oil price of US$70 per barrel, for the 13 years period until the expiration of the PSC contract in 2027.
On 30 April 2015, Train-1 of Senoro Upstream Gas Production Facility went for full operation. The gas production from Senoro field was sent to DSLNG to produce its first LNG drop on 24 June 2015. Train-2 of Senoro has started its operation and transmitting gas to DSLNG with a ramp up production rate to meet DSLNG gas requirement of up to 250 MMSCFD. Within 40 days of operation time span, Senoro Upstream Gas Production Facility has transmitted the required gas volume for the first LNG shipment of approximately 125,000 m3, which today on 2 August 2015 will be shipped to the LNG Regasification Facility owned by PT Pertamina in Arun, Aceh. In addition to DSLNG, 55 MMSCFD of gas will be supplied to an ammonia plant operated by PT Panca Amara Utama (PAU) and 5 MMSCFD of gas to PT PLN.
Lukman Mahfoedz, President Director and CEO of MedcoEnergi stated, "The successful completions of these two projects substantiate MedcoEnergi as a National Private Oil and Gas Company making a breakthrough in monetizing gas such that it provides significant contribution to the government. We are hoping that the Government of Indonesia would provide more opportunities for National Private Oil Companies like MedcoEnergi to continue developing energy in Indonesia in the future. This success also demonstrates that MedcoEnergi, together with its partner, play a crucial role in the development of gas and LNG industry in Indonesia.”
Project history highlight
The project was pioneered by MedcoEnergi after acquiring JOB Senoro Tomori block in 2000. Until 2005, MedcoEnergi endeavored to develop this gas field, which has about 1.9 TCF of gas reserves, but in a remote location far from any gas infrastructure or gas market. In 2005, MedcoEnergi, together with its partner Pertamina, decided to build an LNG plant with a total investment of US$2.8 billion, and to develop the upstream side of Senoro with a total investment of US$1.2 billion.(***)
Jakarta, June 26, 2015 – Gas produced from Senoro field, owned by Joint Operating Body Pertamina Medco E&P Tomori Sulawesi (JOB-PMTS), has been delivered to Donggi Senoro LNG (DSLNG) refinery, reaching a rate of 145 MMSCFD, to produce first LNG (First Drop LNG) on June 24, 2015, at around 07:12 pm and within the next 30-40 days, LNG is expected to be ready for the first shipment to the buyer. Gradually, Senoro field will deliver larger amounts of gas to DSLNG until it reaches peak production capacity of 310 MMSCFD.
In addition to producing gas of 310 MMSCFD, this field will also produce condensate at 8,000 barrels oil of equivalent per day (BOEPD) with an operating contract period until 2027. JOB-PMTS will also supply 55 MMSCFD of gas to PT Panca Amara Utama (PAU) and 5 MMSCFD to PLN. JOB-PMTS is the operator of Senoro-Toili PSC Block in Central Sulawesi. JOB-PMTS shareholders consist of MedcoEnergi (30%), PT Pertamina (50%), and Tomori E&P Ltd (20%).
Donggi Senoro LNG refinery, with a capacity of 2.1 million tons per year, has undergone its commissioning phase successfully and safely since October 2014, reaching its operating phase in the early of June 2015. This refinery is the fourth LNG refinery in Indonesia and first to be developed by the new scheme that separates the upstream gas production and the downstream gas processing. The refinery is operated by PT Donggi-Senoro LNG and owned by PT Pertamina Hulu Energi, Medco LNG Indonesia, and Sulawesi LNG Development.
President Director of MedcoEnergi Lukman Mahfoedz explains, "We are proud of this achievement. Production from Senoro field will contribute and increase national production amidst Indonesia’s sluggish oil and gas production. This integration will create a new center of economic growth in the presence of a new LNG facility such as an ammonia plant that is currently being built and electricity that will meet the needs of the Banggai people among others to meet local electricity supply shortage. This project is a cornerstone achievement as the completion of this project will strengthen MedcoEnergi as a privately-owned national Oil and Gas Company that is capable in developing the LNG business in Indonesia.
