John S. Karamoy

Founder & President Director

jskGraduated Chemical Engineer from ITB in  Bandung with over 50 years of unparalleled experiences in oil and gas upstream, starting from well-site production technician, driller and operation management and after having  several executive overseas assignments, climbed  all the way to Top Executive in major multinational oil companies in Indonesia and CEO of major public listed Indonesian energy company to non-executive positions in several major mineral mining companies.

“It all began in 1955, having graduated from high school, I joined STANVAC, (now known as EXXONMOBIL INDONESIA ) who had been  operating in Indonesia  since 1912, as a Production and Driller Trainee in the jungle of South Sumatra,  while expecting to qualify to  a scholarship  program to continue to university education .

Eighteen months later, I got the opportunity to a company sponsored scholarship to go to university for which later on I successfully earned my Engineering degree in Chemical from ITB at Bandung in 1963. Immediately thereafter,  my  career in the upstream sector of the oil and gas industry accelerated quickly as more and more important posts in the company organization I occupied during the course of 60’s, 70’s and 80’s as well as exposures to numerous important international posts and assignments in Texas, New York and Venezuela – South America .

As STANVAC operation in Indonesia was later on greatly reduced toward the end of its contracts term, in 1987 I took the honor to take the offer of Roy M. Huffington of Texas, USA, to run his oil and gas upstream operation in East Kalimantan under the name of HUFFCO INDONESIA which at that time was the major gas producer and contributor to the largest LNG export facility  in the world by maintaining in access of 2000 MMCFD gas deliverability to Bontang LNG Plant to be exported to Japan, Korea and Taiwan. Later in 1988 Huffco was restructured and changed the name into Vico for which I fed until my retirement in 1991″.

“Following my 30 years of service in the two foreign International oil and gas corporations, I decided to promote the establishment of an Indonesian private upstream oil and gas company.

I teamed up with MEDCO GROUP, a then leading national drilling contractor, to form up EXSPAN ( now kown as MEDCO EXPLORATION AND PRODUCTION INDONESIA or MEPI ) and then subsequently succeeded to take over the Sanga Sanga TAC block in East Kalimantan  from  TESORO and the Kampar and Extension PSC STANVAC blocks in South Sumatera and Riau Central Sumatera,  in 1992 and 1995 respectively, The owner of MEPI, MEDCO ENERGI INTERNASIONAL was publically listed in 1994.

With all my decades of experiences and expertise in this industry, and now also being the co owner and founder of the business, I put every effort and dedication to lead, grow, develop and advance MEPI and  later on MEDCO ENERGI INTERNASIONAL , as CEO and Chairman  into  a recognizable, successful, reputable and profitable International Public Listed Oil & Gas Corporation that we nowadays know of, “Proudly to say, nothing came easy as I have come a long way and done all my best efforts to achieve optimum results in every role I played during the past 50 years or so of my long golden career in the operation, management and business of oil & gas upstream industry. Everything has been achieved through the mindset to do Business in Confidence and strongly believe in Hard Work, Dedication, Integrity, Technology and Synergy. Perhaps that’s what has earned me a credential as “The Oil Man”.

“I firmly believe what they all say that “Old Soldiers Never Die” ‘ so my next obsession is to establish, lead, grow and develop my own Group of Companies under the flagship of JESKA GROUP.

PT. Jeska Mitra Energi (JME)  was established in 2006 fully loaded with such above credentials along with invaluable superb knowledge, experiences and expertise brought over by a number of join-in partners and associates whom I have come to know them very well from the past.

JME focuses on providing integrated technical and managerial services for new PSC companies who have little knowledge on the risks and rewards of the upstream oil and gas business including EOR.

Since 2009 several more new companies were subsequently established within the JESKA GROUP to handle a variety of services and products that include bentonite production, coal mining and trading, supply of chemicals for oil and gas well drilling, integrated drilling services, renewable, medical health care, ultrafilter water purification system, corrosion inhibitor system, energy saving

All my colleagues are committed to give our best in any business we are doing to deliver best value for money on win-win solution basis to all. ‘We are here to do Business in Confidence and to Serve in Style’.
