EPC for Oil & Gas and Infrastructure
Punj Lloyd ventured into Indonesia in 1993 when it bagged the project for laying the 16” dia 210 km multi-product Balongan Jakarta pipeline. Punj Lloyd was the only Indian company in the hydrocarbon sector in Indonesia at that time. The pipeline was completed ahead of schedule and Pertamina, the state-owned oil and gas company of Indonesia, commended Punj Lloyd for this achievement.
In 1996, two more prestigious EPC projects, the Kertapati Jambi and Satellite ‘A’ Tegal Gede-Tangerang pipeline by Pertamina came to Punj Lloyd. However, the economic crisis struck the country and all state owned projects were suspended. At a time when many international companies relocated themselves, Punj Lloyd was committed to continue its operations in Indonesia. The years during the crisis were not easy ones, but the company decided to meet challenges head-on. PT. Punj Lloyd Indonesia was incorporated in 1997 to establish a regional presence in South East Asia.
The company constructed a swamp and near shore pipeline project from Pt. Bouygues Offshore for the owner, TOTAL E&P Indonesie. This project resulted in the company’s continued presence in Kalimantan, with TOTAL E&P Indonesie as the client.
Punj Lloyd Indonesia has executed projects in the face of language barriers and cultural differences, which the company overcame by its policy of recruiting locals. Sometimes working through the populated villages and towns is a logistical challenge, both for men and machines. Challenges like inaccessibility of islands, environmentally sensitive mangrove forests, undulating terrain, rocky seabed with live coral reefs and granite rock, working in the busiest shipping route connecting Singapore and Indonesia, crossing a river through difficult terrain by horizontal directional drilling and constructing two terminal stations on hilltops involving 500,000 m3 of earthwork did not unnerve Punj Lloyd Indonesia.
Interacting and working with the locals gave the Company valuable insight into the Indonesian work culture. PT Punj Lloyd Indonesia has created a permanent bank of trained local personnel, which is a rich valuable asset to us and has been deployed at our sites world-wide.
The Company also actively contributes towards community development by helping the locals. It has built a mosque and a school in a densely populated area along a pipeline route. Its commitment to establish a presence in the region has resulted in continued investment in construction and amphibian equipment. The equipment yard at Sungaipurun overhauls and repairs equipment and includes a jetty for small ships and barges.
