Jakarta, 26 October 2021 – PT Medco Energi Internasional Tbk1 announced its audited results for the period ended June 30, 2021 (“1H-2021”).

Roberto Lorato, CEO, said “I am pleased to report improving first half results. Prices in the second half of 2021 have continued to improve and domestic gas demand is beginning to recover after Indonesia’s economic lockdowns. We have now published our Climate Change Strategy with the initial actions to reach Net Zero for Scope 1 and Scope 2 emissions by 2050, and Scope 3 by 2060."

Financial Highlights

  • EBITDA 1H-2021 was US$318 million, a 15% increase year-on-year, mainly due to recovering commodity prices. Oil prices were US$62.3/bbl, 61% higher year-on-year (US$38.7/bbl) and weighted average gas prices were US$5.9/mmbtu, 8% higher year-on-year (US$5.4/mmbtu).
  • EBITDA in the second quarter 2021 was US$159million, slightly below first quarter EBITDA despite higher oil prices due to unplanned downtime and the associated costs in our international and Aceh assets.
  • Net Profit in 1H-2021 was US$46.5 million. All three business segments reported profit with Oil & Gas US$88 million, Power US$22 million and Amman Mineral Nusa Tenggara (AMNT) US$33 million as Phase 7 performance continues to ramp up and were offset by headquarters and financing charges.
  • Capital expenditures were US$28 million consistent with the lower activity during COVID-19 restriction in 1H-2021. Expenditure will increase in the second half but full-year capital expenditure will remain inside the Company’s 2021 guidance.
  • Cash and cash equivalents at 1H-21 were US$551 million. Consolidated debt was US$2.6 billion, down 14% from 1H-2020. Restricted group3 debt was US$2.2 billion, down US$$442 million year-on-year with Net Debt3 US$1.8 billion and Net Debt to EBITDA1 3.1x.
