PERTAMINA is Indonesia's leading oil and gas company (National Oil Company). It specializes in offering synthetic engine oil and lubricant oil to clients located worldwide. The company was founded in December 10, 1975.
Initially, the company was named as PT PREMINA. However, due to certain reasons, the name was changed to PN PERMINA in 1961. Later on, the company was merged with PN PERTAMIN in 1968, and the so-formed company was named P PERTAMINA. Furthermore, the company had to change its name once again to PERTAMIN because of the enactment of Law 8 introduced in 1971. In October 9, 2003 the company changed it's legal status to PT PERTAMINA (PERSERO). In spite of having so many changes in the name of the company, one thing that did not changed at all and that is their offerings. They still provide the best quality oil lubricants and synthetic oil to consumers all over the world.
