Pertamina kicks off fleet renewal with 11 ship orders


Jakarta: Pertamina has kicked off its planned fleet renewal programme with 11 confirmed orders. Pertamina Shipping has ordered two tankers from PT PAL, two at PT Anggrek Hitam, one at PT Multi Ocean Shipyard and one at PT Daya Radar Utama Unit II Lamongan. Pertamina also ordered five tankers from unspecified foreign companies, the Tempo website reported. Pertamina went overseas as local yards are still incapable of building larger ships in the 85,000 dwt range, a spokesman said.

Pertamina operates 200 ships, of which 59 are owned. Last month the oil and gas giant said it had set aside $2.46bn for a newbuilding and charter splurge to combat an ageing fleet
