As of 2020, PT Arutmin Indonesia, a subsidiary of Bumi Resources, operates the coal mine.


In November 2001 Bumi Resources acquired 80% of PT Arutmin Indonesia (Arutmin) from BHP Minerals Exploration Inc. At the time of acquisition, Arutmin was the fourth largest coal producer in Indonesia.[2] In April 2004, Bumi Resources brought its shareholding in Arutmin up to 99.99% and the following year undertook a minor divestment of its shareholding in KPC. In 2007 Bumi Resources sold a 30% share of the company to Tata Power of India.

The mine, which is owned by Arutmin, a subsidiary of Bumi Resources, comprises the deposits of Karuh, Kintap, Satui and Bukit Baru. On its website the company states that coal from the Satui mine "requires crushing but, given its low ash content, no washing. Satui coals are crushed at facilities adjacent to the Muara Satui barge port. They are stacked into stockpiles representing different Satui products. Blending from these stockpiles allows coal to be loaded at desired quality specifications.[3] (The mine lies to the south of the Senakin coal mine and inland from the Mulia and Asam-asam coal mines which Arutmin also owns.)
