The signing of the EPC GPF JTB contract was carried out at the PT Pertamina EP Cepu Office, Jakarta, Monday (4/12) between the PT Pertamina EP Cepu President Director, Jamsaton Nababan and the PT Rekayasa Industri-JGC Indonesia-JGC Corporation Consortium represented by the Acting President Director of PT Rekind, Jakub Tarigan.

“With the existing planning, we are targeting an ‘onstream’ JTB project in the fourth quarter of 2020 and the benefits can be enjoyed by the community, especially industries in the East Java and Central Java regions that need gas,” he said.
