“I thank all employees for their hard work and the support of SKK Migas [Upstream Oil and Gas Regulatory Special Task Force], which allowed us to win these awards,” Anis said.

He added that in the past two years, the company has supported several government programs, including its sustainable development goals (SDG) target by running a green economy and people’s empowerment campaigns.
