The government has appointed two new commissioners to PT Pertamina in its latest effort to ensure the state energy giant's smooth transition into a state oil and gas holding company. 

The decision came after Wednesday's Pertamina shareholders meeting. 

The State-Owned Enterprises (SOEs) Ministry released the names of the two new commissioners in a press statement on Thursday: Ahmad Bambang, a former Pertamina marketing director, and Ego Syahrial, the secretary-general of the Energy and Mineral Resources Ministry.

The SOEs Ministry also appointed as independent commissioner Alexander Lay, who is to leave his current position as Pertamina commissioner to take up his new post, while it dismissed Edwin Hidayat Abdullah as commissioner.

"We expect that the new members will strengthen supervision at Pertamina," said Fajar Harry Sampurno, the ministry's undersecretary for mining, strategic industry and media affairs. (dwa)
