Pertamina Names A New Leader

As reported by The Jakarta Post, Indonesia’s state owned oil company – PT Pertamina  – named a new President recently.  As the article notes:

“…Newly appointed Pertamina president director Karen Agustiawan has promised she will boost the company’s performance to meet production targets and to deal with possible fuel scarcity.

Energy and Mineral Resources Purnomo Yusgiantoro told Thursday she was confident of the state-owned oil and gas company’s ability to boost its upstream and downstream production and delivery to meet government-set targets.

Purnomo said that during her assessment as a candidate for the top slot to replace Ari Sumarno, he had asked Karen how she would resolve Pertamina’s ongoing oil and gas distribution problems.

“On that matter, she said she would assemble a new team to handle distribution and exercise strong leadership,” Purnomo said.

Karen, who was Pertamina’s upstream director, is the first woman to take the position of president director in the company.”
