"It is expected that with the new Director, the refinery will gradually transform its production, so the new refinery will support the production of the old refinery," Dahlan told the media crew.

According to him, Cilacap Refinery, Balongan, Dumai and Balikpapan should be revitalized immediately. In addition a new refinery should also have its progress, such as those in Tuban with Rosneft, and that in Bontang with a consortium of Oman.
