The reconciliation report contains information about the reconciliation / comparison of state revenues paid by the extractive industry and those received by the government. Companies that are required to provide reports for reconciliation are 167 oil and gas companies (operators and partners) and 123 companies from the mineral and coal sector. Up to the reporting deadline, of the 167 oil and gas companies that were expected to report, 14 companies did not report consisting of 9 partner companies and 5 operator companies (2 companies were declared bankrupt by the court). In the mining sector, of the 123 companies required to report, there were 38 companies that did not provide reports for reconciliation. These companies did not submit reports because they exceeded the deadline, no longer produced, and no clear addresses. Although there were a number of companies that did not report, the payment data of the reporting companies (153 oil and gas operator and partner companies and 85 coal sector companies) for state revenues contributed 99.37% of the total national government oil lifting and over / under lifting. , 81% of the total national mining of non-tax revenue..
Contextual reports contain information on governance, licensing and contracts, revenue management, extractive industry contributions, SOE participation, social and environmental responsibility, and management of state revenues from extractive industries.
