Pertamina, the Indonesian national energy company, and PTTGC, the Thai leading Petrochemical producer, have advanced its partnership and collaboration by entering into the Manufacturing JV - HOA to proceed further with the feasibility study of the world-scale petrochemical complex. This collaboration advancement comes after the completion of the extensive project preliminary feasibility study - a part of the partnership HOA signed earlier since April 2013.
