Besmindo is trading as PT BESMINDO ANDALAS SEMESTA was established in 1999 in Duri-Riau, Sumatera, despite of the political and financial crisis in Indonesia ongoing at that time. This demonstrates Besmindo’s continuous effort to support its clients, in this case for its support of PT Caltex Pacific Indonesia (now known as Chevron Pacific Indonesia). Since then Besmindo has been providing quality products and reputable services to its international and national clients, Baker Hughes, Bormindo, Century Drilling, Halliburton, Saripari Pertiwi Abadi, Tridiantara Alvindo, Weatherford and others who operate in the Duri area.
As part of our group policy and vision in providing quality product and services to our clients, PT Besmindo Andalas Semesta embarked in late 2000 to obtain API Certification. We attained our licenses in 2001 when PT Besmindo Andalas Semesta was awarded the prestigious API licenses for Specs 5CT (5CT-0523) for Threader and Spec 7 – 1 (7-1-0364) for Rotary Drill Stem Subs, Drill Collars, Threading for Rotary Shouldered Connections. We were also awarded ISO 9001:1994 (APIQR 0216) for the Quality Management System; it was upgraded to ISO 9001:2000 in 2003.Then upgraded to ISO 9001 : 2008 in 2010.
In line with the group business development plan we formed in mid 2002, we also began providing corrosion resistance for heavy weight drill pipes, drill collars and stabilizers through the application of tungsten carbide hard facing by welding (which also known as hard-banding).
Besmindo then began a diversification effort; we started to manufacture new flanges with sealing areas protected with an overlay of Stainless Steel 310, or Sterlitte, or Inconel 625 in order to prevent corrosion. We were awarded the Spec 6A (6A-0701) license for threaded connectors, adapter & spaces spools by API in the year 2004.
Now, Besmindo have been appointed from MIGAS as a BOP Repair Facility in Indonesia. We continue to improve our quality and services as a commitment to our international and national clients.
In 2011, SJ Petroleum Machinery co., a Chinese Corporation which engaged in business of manufacture and sale of drilling rigs for oil and gas industry has appointed PT. Besmindo Andalas Semesta as the sole authorized service in Indonesia (Authorized Repair Facility).
