Jakarta (ANTARA News) - The management of the states oil and gas company, PT Pertamina, has appointed President Director of PT Pertamina Geothermal Energy Adriansyah to replace Syamsu Alam as president director of PT Pertamina EP.

A Pertamina EP press release received here on Thursday said Syamsu had subsequently become the senior vice president (exploration) for the Pertamina Upstream Directorate, replacing Rony Gunawan.

Meanwhile, Rony will be appointed as president director of Pertamina Geothermal Energy to replace Adriansyah.

Pertamina also appointed Sigit Raharjo as the VP Upstream Technology Center director to replace Richard H. Tamba.

Meanwhile, Sigits position as Pertamina Geothermal Energys director of operations has been handed over to Richard.

The entire handover was conducted in Jakarta on Wednesday, Nov. 20.

Pertamina believes Adriansyah is the right person for the position of president director of Pertamina EP as he has had a long career in the development of the Upstream Oil and Gas Industry Technology Center under the Pertamina Upstream Directorate.

Adriansyah said he would bring improvements to Pertamina EP with a view to enabling Pertamina to emerge as a world-class energy company by 2025.

"The production target should continue to increase," he remarked.(*)
