In 1995, PT Besmindotama Semesta expanded into manufacturing of Drill-stem subs, casing collars, and pup joints to serve the increasing needs and rapid development of the oil and gas industry in Indonesia. These kinds of equipment are mainly used in the oil and gas development projects of our clients located throughout of the whole Indonesian archipelago.

The Indonesian companies are in Jakarta (serving as the main arm of the group), Balikpapan – East Kalimantan, and Duri – Riau; the Malaysian companies are in Kemaman – Terengganu, and Labuan, the Australian companies are in Karratha and Perth – West Australia; the Brunei company is in Kuala Belait – Brunei; the Chinese company is in Tianjin – China.
In our quest to provide better product quality, the company was awarded American Petroleum Institute (API) certification and licenses for various products used in the oilfield and other petroleum related industries. API provides quality assurance certification under the API Spec Q1 program; manufacturers who meet their criteria qualify to manufacture under the API Spec Q1 program and to utilize the API Monogram for Specs 5CT, 6A and 7 – 1. The company was also awarded ISO 9001:2008 certification for the Quality Management System in our facilities in Jakarta, Balikpapan and Duri.
During the late 1990’s further expansion resulted in the company extending its business into corrosion services for drill pipes, drill collars, and stabilizers through application of hard-facing with tungsten carbide.
