SOE Ministry slashes Pertamina’s board of directors to refocus business

first_imgThe government has cut the board of directors of state-owned oil and gas giant Pertamina from 11 positions to six, a leaked document shows, in a continued campaign to slim down national enterprises.State-Owned Enterprises (SOE) Minister Erick Thohir confirmed the move, saying the restructuring was aimed at refocusing the board’s role to focus on corporate management affairs such as finance and human capital, instead of operations.“The overall plan has been consistent. We want all SOEs to focus on their core businesses,” Erick said during a press conference on Friday. The restructuring, he continued, was expected to improve Pertamina’s business performance, which he said could be measured through, among other indicators, increased upstream oil and gas production and lower fuel distribution costs.Nicke Widyawati, Emma Sri Martini and Koeshartanto retained their positions as president director, finance director and human capital director, respectively. The former logistics, supply chain and infrastructure director, Mulyono, and asset management director M. Haryo Yunianto were appointed as the integrated logistics and infrastructure director and corporate services director, respectively.The remaining director positions for upstream operations, refining, corporate marketing, retail marketing, petrochemical, megaprojects, investment and risk management have been scrapped.Iman Rachman, the former president director of state asset management firm PT Perusahaan Pengelola Aset (PPA), is the only newcomer to Pertamina’s board of directors. Iman has experience in listed companies, Erick said. The board of commissioners, which includes former Jakarta governor Basuki “Ahok” Tjahaja Purnama, remains unchanged, according to the document.Pertamina is the latest in a series of SOEs to have its board of directors restructured to improve efficiency at the behest of the ministry. Last month, the SOE Ministry restructured 14 national plantation firms to consolidate PT Perkebunan Nusantara III (PTPN) as the holding company of the firms. Similar to Pertamina’s restructuring, PTPN III will focus on corporate management while its subsidiaries will focus on producing various crops, such as palm oil, natural rubber and cocoa. Erick said that, going forward, Pertamina’s subsidiaries would also be grouped into specialized subholdings. He also expects two subholdings to be listed on the Indonesia Stock Exchange (IDX) within the next two years.“There will be one for upstream, one for marketing and there’s already PGN for gas,” he said, referring to publicly-listed gas distributor PGN, which became the subholding company for all national gas-related firms under Pertamina in late 2018.Pertamina owns dozens more subsidiaries that operate all along the domestic oil and gas supply chain, including in exploration, refining, distribution and retail. Pertamina even has a subsidiary in property, PT Patra Jasa, and health care, PT Pertamina Bina Medika IHC.The company expects the new structure to make it more “agile” and “focused” in order to develop “world class capabilities” to become a global-scale energy company with market a value of US$100 billion.“With the [restructuring], Pertamina’s role as a holding will be directed into portfolio management and facilitating business synergy among all units under Pertamina Group, speeding up new business development and executing national programs,” reads a statement from the company published on Friday.“Meanwhile, subholding companies will perform the role of supporting operational excellence by developing their respective scales and synergy, speeding up business development and increasing their capabilities and flexibility in partnerships and funding.”Pertamina president director Nicke Widyawati said in April that the company would liquidate and divest its stakes in 25 direct and indirect subsidiaries to focus more on its core business.“We plan to liquidate and divest our stakes in eight subsidiaries this year and the rest next year,” she said, adding that many of the subsidiaries were no longer operational.Topics :last_img read more

De Bruyne is phenomenal – Kompany

first_img “There’s a lot of hunger in this team, a lot of desire to do well and the first hour on Monday was exceptional. “We have shown what we can do and what every manager will say now is why not do it every game? “So far it’s a 100 per cent record but let’s not get ahead of ourselves.” The City captain believes his Belgium team-mate would give the side an extra edge if they finally strike a deal with Wolfsburg. De Bruyne has been linked with a move to the Etihad this summer as City look to tempt him back to the Barclays Premier League. Kompany has played alongside former Chelsea midfielder De Bruyne for their country and knows first hand what an influence he would be as City look to improve their squad. “Let me put it this way, he’s definitely not going to make the team weaker. He’s a phenomenal player,” he said. “Our squad can become stronger by getting everyone in the right direction. “We had so many players – and I was one of them, especially at the end of last season – who didn’t perform and if they do then it’s like having six or seven new players. Then we do have a stronger squad. “Players like Raheem (Sterling) and (Fabian) Delph, from what I’ve seen, will give us something different.” City host Chelsea on Sunday in an early clash between the title rivals after Monday’s 3-0 win at West Brom, where Kompany scored their third goal. Victory would be an early marker in the title race but Kompany is content to let others take the spotlight after finishing runners-up to Chelsea last season. “We are happy to let all the other ones be the favourites, for us it’s a different position to be in and maybe a good challenge for the team to take on,” said the 29-year-old. Vincent Kompany insists Kevin De Bruyne would be a phenomenal signing for Manchester City. Press Associationlast_img read more
