The ADB stated that PT Geo Dipa Energi (GDE) was formed in 2002 as a joint venture company of Pertamina and PLN to manage and develop the geothermal working areas at Dieng and Patuha, which are among the 2 GW of working areas allocated for SOE development. GDE negotiated a PPA with PLN in 2004 for both Dieng and Patuha, covering the generation of up to 400 MW at each site. In 2011, the government reorganized GDE from a joint venture to a limited liability company and took over the 67% of shares owned by Pertamina. Equity injections from the government have increased its shareholding to 93.3%, while PLN holds 6.7%. GDE operates a 55 MW power plant at Dieng (Dieng Unit 1) and a 55 MW power plant at Patuha (Patuha Unit 1).
