JAKARTA - PT Elnusa Tbk (ELSA) had realised 40% of its capital expenditure (capex) throughout the first half of 2023. The total capex budget set by ELSA this year is IDR 500 billion. 

Jayanti Oktavia Maulina, Manager Corporate Communication of ELSA, said that the allocation of 40% of capex is for maintaining capacity and managing wells. Meanwhile, the remaining 35% will be allocated for business expansion, particularly in hydraulic work-over (HWU) projects, mobile wire testing, as well as energy distributions and logistics service for the construction and revitalisation of petroleum liquefied gas terminals.
