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.

This Manufacturing JV - HOA is aimed to further materialize the agreed joint venture principles and investment scope, as well as enable both parties to finalize the project details by early 2014 prior to conducting the detail bankable feasibility study and Front End Engineering Design (FEED).

Meanwhile, domestic demand for petrochemical products is expected to increase, due to the positive trend of manufacturing sector. Indonesian petrochemical market value is expected to reach US$ 30 billion in 2018 and the JV Company is targeting to control 30% of market share after the Petrochemical Complex commercially operate in 2018.
