The Abu Dhabi National Oil Company, ADNOC, signed a Comprehensive Strategic Framework, CSF, with Indonesia’s energy company, PT Pertamina, Persero, to explore opportunities for collaboration across the oil and gas value chain in the United Arab Emirates, Indonesia and globally.
The signing of the agreement took place in the presence of His Highness Sheikh Mohamed bin Zayed Al Nahyan, Crown Prince of Abu Dhabi and Deputy Supreme Commander of the UAE Armed Force and Joko Widodo, President of Indonesia.
Dr. Sultan Ahmed Al Jaber, UAE Minister of State and ADNOC Group CEO, and Nicke Widyawati, President Director and CEO of Pertamina signed the agreement.
As part of the CSF, ADNOC and Pertamina will evaluate collaboration opportunities across the upstream, midstream and downstream sectors. The scope of projects under consideration includes participation in the UAE’s upstream oil and gas sector, as well as refining and petrochemicals, LNG, LPG, aviation fuel and fuel retail opportunities in Indonesia.

We see significant opportunity for collaboration between our two companies and the development of projects that meet our joint strategic objectives.”
