A lawmaker from Aceh, one Asrizal Asnawi (PAN), filed a lawsuit against several parties, including PT Pertamina (Persero) and the Minister of Energy and Mineral Resources. Asrizal accused the defendants of tort and demanded over Rp2 trillion in compensation. The issue at hand is the transfer of the Oil and Gas Production Sharing Cooperation Contract between the Special Upstream Oil and Gas Business Unit (SKK Migas) and the Contractors to the Aceh Oil and Gas Management Agency (BPMA). The transfer of responsibilities should have been completed in 2015.
