Besmindo is trading as PT BESMINDO BORNEO SEMESTA, strategically located in Balikpapan, was established in 1997 and since then has been providing quality products and reputable services to our international and national clients such as Schlumberger, Halliburton, Baker Hughes and others.
As part of our group policy and vision in providing quality products and services to our clients, PT Besmindo Borneo Semesta embarked in mid 1998 to obtain API Certification. We attained our licenses in early 2000 when PT Besmindo Borneo Semesta was awarded the prestigious API licenses for Spec 5CT (5CT-0498) for OCTG, Spec 6A-0733 and Spec 7 - 1 (7-0346) for drilling tool joints, and ISO 9001: 1994, which is for the Quality Management System. We then sought to improve our Quality Management System by attaining ISO 9001:1994 in year 2000, which has since been upgraded to ISO 9001:2000 (APIQR 0151) in 2004, then in 2010 upgraded to ISO 9001:2008.
In line with the group business development plan we formed in 1998; we also began providing corrosion resistance for drill pipe (Single and Double Heavy Wall Type), drill collars and stabilizers through the application of tungsten carbide hard facing by welding (which also known as hard-banding).
Besmindo then began a diversification effort; we started to manufacture new flanges with sealing areas protected with an overlay of Stainless Steel 310, or Sterlitte, or Inconel 625 in order to prevent corrosion. We were awarded the Spec 6A (6A-0733) license by API in the year 2005.
In that year, we were also appointed as the authorized repair facility for VAM Drilling (VAM-736); VAM is regarded among the top three companies in the oil & gas industries for its high torque and precision threads.
We continue to improve our quality and services as a commitment to our international and national clients. We were approved by Schlumberger as their approved vendor for manufacturing of tool baskets for drilling exploration in Kalimantan in 2004.
