BUMN Forms a Consortium for Oil and Gas Processed Waste Management
The Ministry of BUMN and SKK Migas agreed to form a consortium consisting of 7 BUMNs which would carry out a study to manage the waste generated from oil and gas (oil and gas) activities. This collaboration was made considering that until now the potential to manage waste products from oil and gas activities has not been maximized.
Secretary of the Ministry of BUMN, Imam Aprianto Putro said this study included identification of potential waste and location of land that could be used as a location for the construction of upstream oil and gas waste management facilities, which would be followed up with a Pre Feasibility Study (Pre FS) of waste management business activities to be carried out by JV BUMN companies. .
"Both parties will conduct a joint study of the potential for waste management resulting from upstream oil and gas business activities," said Imam at the Ministry of BUMN Office, Monday (13/3). Imam said the BUMN Ministry would assign 5 BUMNs consisting of Pertamina, Antam, Bukit Asam, Timah, Inalum either directly or through their affiliated companies to form a joint venture company (JV BUMN) which would conduct a study on potential waste management resulting from upstream oil and gas business activities.
SKK Migas will assist the implementation of the study from the aspect of providing the required data and information
