In accordance with Pertamina's vision of "Becoming a World-Class National Energy Company", Pertamina's role in the development of the national economy is to support the independence and national energy security.. Pertamina is needed to be actively involved in sustainable energy development including in the development of the electricity sector as an effort to contribute the Company to the Government and PLN Programs as support for fellow BUMN.
Pertamina's entry into the development of the electricity business is in line with the government's energy mix target where natural gas energy use reaches 22% in 2025. Related to the increase in national energy use using gas, Pertamina must ensure that the investment in gas infrastructure built must be economically feasible and guaranteed absorption One of them is from the electricity sector which is the anchor buyer in the national gas business. If Pertamina is included in the gas-based electricity business, Pertamina will be able to contribute in ensuring resilience, national energy independence and encouraging economic development that will participate in creating a multiplier effect for the local region. This certainly will drive the wheels of the national economy which is in line with the goal of establishing BUMN in Indonesia. Pertamina is not the only oil and gas company that invests in the electricity business. Most of the world's oil and gas companies have also invested in the electricity business as an effort to optimize the gas supply chain.
