PT Medco Energi Internasional Tbk (MEDC), an oil and gas company with the highest market capitalisation in Indonesia, plans to issue its Shelf-Registration Bonds IV of MEDC Phase II Year 2022 of IDR 3 trillion.

The bonds are an extension of the public offering program of the Shelf-Registration Bonds IV, targeting to collect IDR 5 trillion in total. MEDC had previously released bonds in this program worth IDR 1 trillion in the first phase and another IDR 1 trillion in the second phase.
