Jakarta, 31 March 2016 – Today, PT Medco Energi Internasional Tbk (“MedcoEnergi” or “the Company”) released its financial statements for the year ending December 31, 2015 with a gross profit of US$208 million and US$90 million operating profit.
Hilmi Panigoro, President Director of MedcoEnergi, stated, “2015 was a difficult year for the industry in general, but the Company has emerged strongly and delivered 2015 EBITDA of US$217 million despite the low price environment. Going forward, the new Board of Directors has set out its business priorities with the intent to improve the Company’s financial performance. These priorities include further cost and capital efficiency and prioritizing reduced project cycle time in our portfolio of domestic developments. We will also continue to exercise MedcoEnergi’s strategic position in Indonesia to create value for our stakeholders through selective domestic resource acquisitions, contract extensions as well as gas sales and subcontractor renegotiations.”
Operational highlights in 2015
· Oil production was stable year on year at 31.6 MBOPD, despite the turmoil in Yemen and was the result of successful efforts to mitigate natural decline in our domestic assets. Gas sales declined slightly reflecting lower customer demand in 2015. As the Company focuses upon value, 2016 production is expected to be in the range of 55 to 60 MBOEPD.
· Senoro gas field was placed into service, on time and on budget in July 2015. Production from Senoro continues to exceed expectations with a gross production capacity of 355 MMSCFD. Concurrently, the Donggi Senoro LNG (“DS-LNG”) plant was also successfully placed into service. Following inauguration of both the Senoro gas and DS-LNG by Joko Widodo, President of Indonesia, DS-LNG delivered its first cargo in September 2015. In 2015, the DS-LNG plant delivered 12 LNG cargoes, and MedcoEnergi expects that to more than double in 2016 with a full year of operations.
· In July 2015, MedcoEnergi signed a 25 year extension to its Karim Small Fields service contract. The Company has operated in Oman since 2006 and the extension demonstrates Oman’s confidence in MedcoEnergi as an operator.
· Through its power subsidiary, the Company entered into a CSPA with Aboitiz Power of the Philippines to co-develop the 110 MW Ijen Geothermal Project, and extended the PPA for the Singa power plant in South Sumatra.
· In January 2015, MedcoEnergi signed a gas contract with Pertamina for the long term delivery of 198 TBTU of gas from Block A. This first phase of developments on this PSC is expected to begin production in 2018 following the recently awarded EPC contract to JEC.
· Also in January 2015, MedcoEnergi signed a gas contract with Perusda Mura Energi, South Sumatra for the delivery of 8.75 TBTU over 11 years. The contract will fulfil the gas needs for electricity generation in Musi Rawas regency.
Financial Highlights in 2015
· 2015 EBITDA was US$217 million despite an oil price decline of almost 50% whereas realized gas prices were essentially stable, reflecting the Company’s mix of oil and fixed price gas contracts.
· The Company booked US$180 million net financial impairments due to the low oil price.
· Cash costs were reduced by 16%. Similarly, reduction in operational capex excluding acquisitions by 62% and in cash lifting cost 23%. During 2016 the Company will continue to make further sustainable expenditure reductions, deferrals and where appropriate renegotiate its exploration commitments.
· The Company raised SG$100 million in early 2015, part of an overall SG$500 million Medium Term Note program and later in the year refinanced its Senoro gas plant.
· The Company ended the year with significant liquidity, closing 2015 with over US$450 million of cash reserves.

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."(***)
