Pertamina’s largest share of 2021 profit from upstream sector

The upstream sector accounted for the largest share of state-owned oil and gas firm PT Pertamina’s (Persero’s) net profit as Indonesian crude prices (ICP) soared in 2021.

“The overall profit earned is a combination of the six sub-holdings and their subsidiaries, but the largest contribution to the net profit comes from the upstream sector due to the windfall from the increase in ICP prices,” acting vice president of corporate communications at Pertamina, Heppy Wulansari, said in Jakarta on Tuesday.

Reporting its 2021 fiscal year performance to the government, which is a shareholder in the company, Pertamina said it scored a net profit of Rp29.3 trillion.

The majority of this profit was obtained from the upstream sector’s revenue, which increased sharply. Meanwhile, the downstream sector experienced losses due to the increase in crude oil prices and as Pertamina’s fuel prices remained below the market price.

This was an advantage for Pertamina, which has an integrated business from upstream to downstream, which allows cross-subsidies. Thus, it could maintain the balance between profits and public service bonds.

Wulansari said that Pertamina’s financial performance was positive, with almost doubled profit in the 2021 fiscal year.

This profit was consolidated profit from all Pertamina business lines from upstream, processing, and downstream.

As for the downstream sector, especially fuel and LPG marketing and distribution, at this time, the status is still at a loss due to the high cost of fuel production as the largest component is crude oil.

“However, Pertamina really appreciates the government’s full support through the payment of assignment fuel compensation and the addition of energy subsidies in the 2022 State Budget. This is very meaningful to maintain people’s purchasing power and encourage economic recovery,” Wulansari said.

Canada – Canada’s largest science-based regulator marks 25 years of protecting food, plants and animals

The Canadian Food Inspection Agency (CFIA) is celebrating 25 years of safeguarding Canada’s food supply—but the Agency is about much more than just food.

April 4, 2022 – Ottawa, Ontario

The Canadian Food Inspection Agency (CFIA) is celebrating 25 years of safeguarding Canada’s food supply—but the Agency is about much more than just food.

Safe food starts with healthy plants and animals. That’s why the CFIA also works to prevent the spread of invasive plants, plant pests and animal diseases. In fact, Canada is the only jurisdiction in the world bringing the whole food chain together under one roof.

The CFIA’s work touches all Canadians, whether it is a potato farmer who wants to sell products in Canada and abroad, seed producers who want to develop new ways to breed plants, a cattle rancher, a person transporting livestock in their truck, a consumer at the grocery store, a gardener at the garden centre, or a traveller coming into Canada.

The CFIA is powered by its people—including inspectors, veterinarians and scientists—who work tirelessly to make sure Canadians can trust that the food on their plates is safe, protect Canada’s plant and animal resource base from diseases and pests, facilitate trade and market access for Canadian-made products, and conduct innovative research.

Throughout the global COVID-19 pandemic, the CFIA has played a critical role in keeping international markets open to Canadian agricultural products. Through science, innovation and evidence-based decision-making, the Agency has a solid foundation to continue responding to challenges of the modern world, including a global food supply chain, climate change and emerging diseases.

Inspect. Protect. Connect. Everyone in Canada can join the CFIA in celebrating its 25th anniversary by learning more about the Agency’s role, diverse workforce, and the actions we can all take to help protect our precious food, plant and animal resources.

“This year, the CFIA celebrates 25 years of scientific, inspection and enforcement innovations, and both operational and regulatory excellence. Safeguarding food safety and plant and animal health as well as supporting market access is a mandate of critical importance to all of us here at the CFIA, and to Canadians. I am immensely proud and deeply honoured to work alongside so many passionate and committed CFIA employees who are dedicated to delivering on that promise each and every day.”

– Dr. Siddika Mithani, President of the CFIA

“I would like to recognize the thousands of CFIA staff who have achieved so many important milestones over the past quarter century to protect and safeguard our food supply. Thanks to their efforts, the food we eat in Canada is among the safest in the world. As we recover from the challenges of the COVID-19 pandemic and respond to ongoing economic, environmental and global changes, the CFIA will continue to be there for Canadians as a trusted science-based regulator.”

– The Honourable Jean-Yves Duclos, Minister of Health

The Canadian Food Inspection Agency (CFIA) touches the lives of all Canadians in so many positive ways. Each day, hard-working CFIA employees—including inspectors, veterinarians and scientists—inspect food for safety risks, protect plants from pests and invasive species, and respond to animal diseases that could threaten Canada’s national herd and human health. Guided by science-based decision-making and modern regulations, the Agency works tirelessly to ensure access to safe and healthy food in Canada, and support access to international markets for our high-quality agricultural products.
