Antam and Jindal are still conducting a feasibility study on the $700 million project to be built in Kendari, Southeast Sulawesi, Antam president Alwin Syah Lubis told the newspaper Investor Daily.

Antam will have a 55% share and Jindal a 45% share in the project, which is to have a capacity to produce 20,000 tons of ferronickel and 250,000 tons of stainless steel a year.
