One of the homework to look for is the presence of retailers, or sellers outside Pertamina's authorized dealer. Where, the selling price of retailers cannot be controlled and tends to gain multiple benefits.

Last stock position is ahead of Christmas and New Year 2018, reaching a very safe level. For premium fuel and diesel fuel, it is enough for the next 20 days if compared to normal sales average.

Fuel distribution from Timika to Yahukimo use barge and tug boat. If the condition of the waters is normal, the journey takes about 5 days. But if the river water discharge recedes, delivery can be delayed up to 14 days.

"Despite the difficult terrain, Pertamina continues to commit itself to providing the best service to maintain energy security throughout Indonesia," Eko said.

To succeed the BBM Satu Harga program, Eko emphasized the need for support from government officials and local government. Especially regarding the supervision of the implementation of the noble program launched by President Joko Widodo it. So that Papuans can get BBM at affordable prices.
