Release date- 21082019 - KARAWANG - PT Pertamina Hulu Energi Offshore North West Java (PHE ONWJ) continues its efforts to preserve the environment by involving all workers and villagers.

The Tree Foster Parent Program (OTAP) was initiated since 2013, on the banks of the Sedari River and Karang Sari Hamlet by planting the initial stages of around 10,000 mangrove seedlings.

'The OTAP program is one of the Greenbelt Mangrove programs on the north coast of Karawang which is also the realization of the PHE ONWJ's Sustainable Environmental Standards program. This program is a collaboration of worker and company participation that aims to help preserve the environment through planting mangrove trees around the PHE ONWJ operations area, 'explained PHE Relations VP, Ifki Sukarya.

Every fund donated by workers worth Rp 60,000 is put into one account. Then PHE ONWJ will contribute the same value as workers' donations, to then buy mangrove seeds to be planted in locations that are adapted to the ONWJ PHE Program.

Ifki added, mangrove was chosen because it is one component of coastal ecosystems that plays an important role, both in maintaining the productivity of coastal waters and in supporting the lives of residents around the area. Ecologically and physically, the existence of mangrove forests serves as a nurturing area for various larvae of aquatic biota such as fish, shrimp, and other biota, as well as a source of aquatic productivity.

Mangroves become a green belt along the coast / river estuary that can maintain the quality of the agricultural, fisheries, and settlement ecosystems behind it from increasing abrasion, wind and sea water intrusion.

At present the OTAP Program has been carried out in 5 villages, namely Sedari, Ciparage, Pasir Putih, Pusaka Jaya Utara, and Cilamaya villages. The cumulative number of mangroves in the 5 villages is 195,000 trees with a conservation area of 195 hectares. With the participation of hundreds of workers involved in this preservation effort.
