Up to the first Quarter, through three subsidiaries in the upstream sector, PEP, PHE, and PGE, Pertamina has drilled six wells. Finding 2 C at 40 MMBOE from Well Merakes-2 which is a cooperation of PHE and other KKKS.

"Pertamina's upstream performance earlier this year is quite encouraging, our oil and gas reserves continue to increase," he said.
