Initial shipment is Handil Mix Crude with volume reaching 150.000 barrel, using tanker owned by PT Pertamina (Persero) MT Gede with the aim of Pertamina Refinery Unit of Balikpapan (Refinery Unit V).

"The shipment of crude oil to the domestic buyers of PT Pertamina (Persero) ISC shows that managing the Mahakam Work Area from Total E & P Indonesie to PHM runs smoothly," PJs General Manager of PHM, John Anis said in a press release this week.

He added that this shipment is also a form of support for the fulfillment of domestic energy needs. "PHM will send all crude oil and condensate production to domestic buyers, PT Pertamina ISC," he added.

The distribution of crude oil and condensate from Senipah Terminal to MT Gede tanker is conducted using Single Buoy Mooring facility (located about 11 km from the beach) operated by PT PHM itself.
