East Kalimantan-Java gas pipeline: The Five Bidders

The Upstream Oil and Gas Regulatory Body (BPH Migas) announced five bidders for the giant 1.219 km gas pipeline project connecting East Kalimantan and Java Island yesterday. Two state-owned enterprises (PT Perusahaan Gas Negara Tbk and PT Barata Indonesia) and three private companies (PT Bakrie & Brothers Tbk, PT Bumi Karsa Lini Nusa, and PT Alpha Kharisma).
PT Perusahaan Gas Negara (PGN) Tbk would establish a consortium of companies including state-owned electricity company PT Perusahaan Listrik Negara (PLN), state-owned fertilizer company PT Pupuk Sriwijaya (Pusri), and two engineering companies PT Inti Karya Persada Teknik and PT Tripatra Engineers & Constructors.
Except PT Bakrie & Brothers who is clearly linked to Bakrie Family, no detail information on PT Bumi Karsa Lini Nusa and PT Alpha Kharisma. I got zero results from googling on these companies. Bumi Karsa without two words Lini Nusa is linked to VP Jusuf Kalla. But Bumi Karsa Lini Nusa is clearly a newly registered company and may be nothing to do with Bumi Karsa, but that could be a possibility.
Alpha Kharisma is also a new company, most likely.
On PGN's consortium, PT Inti Karya Persada Teknik (IKPT) was owned by Nusamba Group (Sigit Harjojudanto, Dakab Foundation, and Dharmais Foundation---all of them are related to former president Soeharto).
Late last year, Soeharto's golf buddy Mohammad 'Bob' Hasan filed a lawsuit against IKPT shareholders and asked them to return 45% of shares owned by PT Wijaya Karya, PT Parama Matra Widya, PT Jasa Ferrie Pratama, PT Grada Matra Tiara, and Workers Cooperative of IKPT.

Sorry, just can't help this tiny urge of mine. BPH (Badan Pengembangan Hilir) Migas is the downstream, BP Migas is the upstream.

BP Migas website is at www.bpmigas.com, BPH Migas website is at www.bphmigas.com. Then there are other sites, such as www.geomigas.com, www.lemigas.esdm.go.id, www.migas.esdm.go.id.
