Ilustrasi SPBU (Ist) - Jakarta - State-owned oil and gas company PT Pertamina (Persero) noted that the public interest in consuming non-subsidized fuel oil (BBM) increased by more than 10 percent during the seven-day fueling season of 2017 and New Year 2018.

VP Corporate Communications Pertamina Adiatma Sardjito, in an official statement in Jakarta yesterday, said that the people's interest in quality fuel increased during the distribution of BBM and New Year's Fuel Tariff on December 18-24, 2017.

"Consumer awareness of quality fuel can be seen from the high interest of the people consuming non-subsidized fuel such as Pertalite, Pertamax, Dexlite, and Pertamina Dex," said Adiatma.

He explained that the average non-subsidized fuel subsidy type of Pertalite experienced significant jumps of about 43 percent or 49 thousand kilo liters (KL) per day compared to the 2016 Task Force period.

When compared to the average consumption in normal conditions in 2017 which is in the range of 45 thousand KL per day, the distribution of Pertalite during the period December 18-24, 2017 increased 9 percent.

In addition, the average non-subsidized fuel distribution of Pertamax types reaches more than 17 thousand KL per day or about 20 percent above the 2016 Task Force period.

Compared to the average consumption at normal conditions of about 16 thousand KL per day, Pertamax distribution during the period December 18-24, 2017 increased more than 9 percent.

Adiatma added that Pertamina Dex is also interested in consumers of diesel-engined vehicles with an average of more than 570 KL per day or an increase of about 17 percent compared to the 2016 Task Force.

The distribution of Pertamina Dex during the 2017 Task Force period increased 8.7 percent compared to the normal condition which is in the range of 531 KL per day.

Of all non-subsidized fuel, the most significant disbursement occurred in the Dexlite type with an average distribution of 1,900 KL per day or about 156.1 percent compared to the 2016 Task Force period.

Compared to the normal conditions of about 1,600 KL per day, the distribution of Dexlite during the 2017 and 2018 New Year's Task Force increased by about 17 percent.

"We will continue to serve the needs of public fuel during the Christmas and New Year holidays until this Task Force ended on January 8, 2018," he said. (Ant)
