Star Energy announced that it is proceeding through its 100% owned subsidiary Magma Nusantara Limited (MNL), to continue the development of the Wayang Windu geothermal field in West Java to be the largest geothermal development in Indonesia, and one of the largest in the world. The announcement follows the signing of the Amendments to the Joint Operation Contract with Pertamina, and the Energy Sales Contract with Pertamina and Perusahaan Listrik Negara (PLN) on 21 November, 2006, by Purnomo Yusgiantoro, the Minister of Energy and Mineral Resources.  The Government, through The Ministry of Energy and Mineral Resources and PLN along with Pertamina is encouraging the use of geothermal energy as a substitute for oil and coal. Indonesia has the world’s largest resources of geothermal energy, much of it in energy-hungry Java, so this new contribution from Wayang Windu supports this Government initiative to preserve petroleum based resources. Supramu Santosa, President Director and CEO of Star Energy said that Star Energy supports the Indonesian Government intention to maximize the application of renewable resources for power generation, and is committed to long term participation in the geothermal industry.
