State-owned oil and gas company PT Pertamina kicked off on Monday the construction of its landmark office building, the Pertamina Energy Tower.

The 99-story building is being built on a 5.7-hectare plot in Rasuna Epicentrum in Kuningan, South Jakarta and is said to signify the company'€™s goal of becoming a world-class energy company.

The tower, which is designed to be 530 meters high, is expected to be completed by 2020. Pertamina Energy Tower will be the firm'€™s headquarters and that of its subsidiaries.

The building will also have supporting facilities, such as a mosque with a 5,000-person capacity, a convention hall, an energy center and sports facilities.

Skidmore Owings Merrill is the main consultant on the construction project and Turner International is the project management consultant. Both were involved in the development of the Burj al Khalifa in Dubai, the world'€™s tallest building.  Local companies will also take part, such as PT Airmas Asri and PT Wiratman & Associates as consultants, as well as PT Pembangunan Perumahan and PT Hutama Karya, which will work on the project'€™s central energy generator.
