Pertamina Energy Tower is a 99-storey, 530-metre (1,740 ft) skyscraper currently on hold in Jakarta, Indonesia.[2] It was designed and planned by Skidmore, Owings & Merrill LLP (SOM) [3], a private architecture and engineering company, and it was supposed to be the new HQ of the state-owned energy company Pertamina.


The tower is to have a dual structural system composed of a central reinforced concrete core and a perimeter composite moment frame. The two systems are connected at regular intervals along the height using steel outrigger and belt trusses[4].

Postponement of the construction[edit]

On 20 February 2015, Pertamina Finance Director Arief Budiman, confirmed that further construction of the Pertamina Energy Tower was suspended due to "depressed oil prices." [5]

Restart of a scaled-down tower[edit]

CNN reported in 19 April 2016 that a scaled-down 30-storey tower (instead of the original 99 storey) will be restarted by a local state-owned bank PT Bank Negara Indonesia Tbk (BNI) [6]
