Indonesia's Pertamina May Acquire 60% of Engineering Firm Rekind


JAKARTA, July 2 (Reuters) - Indonesian state energy firm Pertamina said it was considering acquiring a 60 percent stake in engineering contractor Rekayasa Industri (Rekind), among efforts to improve its engineering resources.

"We have just started a joint working group to evaluate this plan, together with Pupuk Indonesia and Rekind," Pertamina spokeswoman Wianda Pusponegoro told Reuters on Thursday. Pupuk Indonesia is the majority shareholder in Rekind.

A spokesman for Rekind, an engineering, procurement and construction (EPC) firm, was not immediately available for comment.
