Bumi Resources (Bakrie Group)

PT Bumi Resources Tbk is an Indonesian holding company majority-owned by the Bakrie Group and primarily engaged in coal mining. It is Indonesia’s largest coal miner by production volume and boasts of being “the largest thermal coal exporter in the world.”

Its coal mining subsidiaries and associates include:

  • PT Kaltim Prima Coal
  • PT Arutmin Indonesia.

Bumi produces thermal coal from mines in several areas of Indonesia, such as Sangatta, Bengalon, Senakin, Satui, Mulia, Batulicin, Asam-asam, Kintap, Loa Ulung, Tabang, Muara Enim and Penukal Abab Lematang Ilir. Most of its coal is used as fuel for coal-fired power plants.

Bumi has two non-coal business segments:

  • minerals (operated by PT Bumi Resources Minerals Tbk)
  • oil & gas exploration (operated by Gallo Oil (Jersey) Ltd).

In May 2017, Bumi Resources completed a debt restructuring due defaults on some of its bonds and loans due in 2014, 2016 and 2017. Creditors and bondholders will receive a mix of new senior notes, mandatory convertible bonds, equity and contingent value rights.
