Jakarta, 26 June 2021 – PT Medco Energi Internasional Tbk1 announces its consolidated financial statements for the period ended 31 March 2021 (“1Q 2021”).

Our operational and safety performance remain strong, though the pandemic is clearly not over and we must maintain our strict health protocols.”

Financial Highlights

  • Net Income was US$5.1 million due to both Oil and Gas operations and Amman Mineral Nusa Tenggara generating positive earnings and benefiting from recovering commodity prices.
