Sonoro was not expecting this at all. As of Thursday last week, it was looking forward to the "imminent receipt of a multiyear extension from SKK Migas." In a newsletter dated Thursday, March 8, the company warmly described how its "relationship with the people of Indonesia is based on trust, safety and respect. That's been the case throughout Sonoro's dealings with SKK Migas." Sonoro also shared in the newsletter that one of the five regents in West Sulawesi province visited its LG-1 well site in November along with a television news crew. The regent said on camera that he hopes for "investment here, so this area can grow and develop." The regent added, "Yes, we hope this activity will create benefits and a positive result" in the region. He praised Sonoro for its safe operations.
