PGN Corporate Secretary Rachmat Hutama said the consolidation of natural gas management will provide many benefits to the state and society. As is known, the Ministry of SOEs plans to establish a holding state-owned energy. In addition to PGN, another state-owned energy company is PT Pertamina (Persero). Pertamina will be the holding company of oil and gas holding. Currently Pertamina has a subsidiary which is also engaged in natural gas business, namely PT Pertagas. '' With the holding, Pertagas will be merged into PGN, then PGN becomes a subsidiary of PT Pertamina, '' said Hutama, Wednesday (6/12). According to Hutama, basically, PGN believes in the spirit of oil and gas holding formation to prevent the dualism of domestic downstream gas management. "The establishment of oil and gas holding is certainly one way to avoid duplication of natural gas downstream management," Hutama said.
