Previously, Borneo Indobara was included in the list of 34 coal companies that were subject to sanctions in the form of a ban on coal sales abroad (export ban) because they had not fulfilled their coal supply obligations according to the sales contract with PT PLN or PT PLN Batubara for the period January 1 – July 31, 2021.
