Kilang Minyak (Ilustrasi) - Jakarta - PT Pertamina (Persero) continues to encourage efforts to support the implementation of refinery unit (RU) II Dumai refinery project by maximizing gas usage in operation.

The fulfillment of the gas requirement will be supplied through gas purchases, which is marked by a Gas Sales and Purchase Agreement (PJBG), between Pertamina and Connoco Philips (Grissik) Ltd.

The signing of the sale and purchase agreement was conducted by Pertamina Gas Director Yenni Andayani with President & General Manager of Conoco Phillips, Bijan Agarwal at Pertamina Head Office.

Gas Director of Pertamina Yenni Andayani declared PJBG which will last for 5 years in 2018 - 2023, with total contract volume of 65 trillion british thermal unit (TBTU).

"This gas purchase will be used to meet gas demand in RU II Dumai in the conversion phase and RDMP, as a form of Pertamina's seriousness in encouraging the utilization of gas as a more efficient refinery oeprational fuel," Yenni said.

The gas will be supplied from the Corridor WK and field unitization associated with the Corridor Block at the point of delivery at the Grissik Gas Plant Gate. Gas Delivery will be conducted in 2 stages, ie Phase I in mid-2018 to 2020 of 57 Million Standard Cubic Feet per Day (MMCFD) and the second phase in 2021 until the Dumai RDMP project starts at 120 MMCFD.

Yenni said the use of gas as an operational fuel at the refinery is one of the answers for Pertamina's downstream business in an effort to improve efficiency in the chain of processing activities.

"This is a strategic move which will minimize fuel costs in refinery operations," she said. To support the realization of gas conversion at Dumai refinery, Pertamina is also building a 67 km Duri Dumai transmission pipeline in cooperation with Indonesia Gas Transportation.
