The Republic of Indonesia is in Southeast Asia and Oceania. An archipelago made up of over 17,500 islands, Indonesia has over 238 million people and is the world's fourth most populous country. The nation's capital city is Jakarta. The country shares land borders with Papua New Guinea, East Timor, and Malaysia. Other neighbouring countries include Singapore, Philippines, Australia, Palau, and the Indian territory of the Andaman and Nicobar Islands. The Indonesian economy is the world's sixteenth largest by nominal GDP and fifteenth largest by purchasing power parity. The Indonesian archipelago has long been an important trade region. Industry is Indonesia’s largest sector, followed by services and agriculture. Despite its large population and densely populated regions, Indonesia has vast areas of wilderness that support the world's second highest level of biodiversity. The country has abundant natural resources.

Indonesia is home to abundant natural resources including significant amounts of coal, copper, gold, tin and nickel, which are fuelling the country's growing mining sector and presenting new opportunities for Puma Energy.
In October 2012 we announced an agreement to purchase 63.88% of PT Medco Sarana Kalibaru (MSK), the fuel storage and distribution subsidiary of PT Medco Energi Internasional Tbk. The principal assets in the agreement included a fuel storage facility with a 22,700m³ storage capacity, a dedicated jetty, truck loading bays, and distribution capabilities in Kalimantan and Sumatra to serve the mining industry. Our Indonesian operations now include terminals in Kalibaru in Jakarta and Palemberg in South Sumatra, and we have a storage capacity of 25,700m³.
We now employ over 50 people. Moreover, our acquisition of MSK has given us a valuable foothold in Southeast Asia, where investments in infrastructure and other industries are generating increased demand for our products.

Our recommendation for adventure is to head to Pantai Suluban, Bali's surf capital. When you’re there, make sure you try the skewered meat in a peanut Sata. And wherever you go, you can be sure that the coffee will be good. Indonesia is the world’s third largest coffee producer.
