INDUSTRY.co.id - Jakarta - Report of National Energy and Mineral Resources Sector (ESDM) said that the distribution of fuel oil (BBM) in early 2018 is normal, although there are some obstacles due to extreme weather that occurred in some areas.

According to information obtained from the official website of the Ministry of Energy and Mineral Resources, on Friday (5/1/2018), one of the extreme weather constraints is the supply to the Kalukku District Gas Filling Station of Mamuju Regency, West Sulawesi. Extreme weather and high sea waves resulted in late arriving suppliers from Baubau. Although there was a queue of vehicles due to delays in supply, gas stations still serve consumers with Pertamax.

The report also states, PT Pertamina (Persero) MOR VII has anticipated by doing alternatives channeling Premium through Depot Makassar, Depot Palopo, and Depot Donggala to keep the stock of Premium fuel stock.

Nationally, the supply of fuel and LPG is still safe and normal. For example, stocks of Premium fuel types can be reached up to 33.97 days; Solar / Akrasol: 21.41 days; Pertalite: 21.15 days; Kerosene: 61.45 days; Pertamax / Acra92: 19,18 days; Pertamax Turbo: 36.81 days; Pertamina Dex: 21.98 days; Dexlite: 20.82 days; LPG: 17.52 days and Avtur: 27.47 days.

In order to ensure safe supply of fuel and LPG, the ESDM Sector National Post Team went directly to some strategic areas.

Based on Magma Indonesia Application, the activity status of Volcano 2 Volcano is still AWAS (Mount Agung and Sinabung), 18 Volcano status WASPADA (Mount Ili Lewotolok, Banda Api, Dempo, Bromo, Rinjani, Lokon, soputan, Karangetang, Gamalama, Sangeangapi, Rokatenda, Marapi Dukono and Mount Kerinci), the remaining 49 Volcanoes with Normal Status.

Likewise, the condition of electricity, the overall capacity of the national supply is safely monitored with a capacity of 35,699.35 MW and peak night load per 3 January 2018 of 31,999.96 MW. So there is a national power reserve of 3,699.39 MW.
