INDUSTRY.co.id - London - Some strategic policies implemented by the Government to reform the ESDM sector in Indonesia, such as the use of gross split schemes for upstream oil and gas up to the implementation of fuel oil (BBM) Satu Harga that provides the same fuel prices throughout the territory of Indonesia.

In relation to the policy, Minister Jonan once again held discussions with several Ambassadors (Ambassadors) of the Republic of Indonesia in Europe, such as Ambassador to Indonesia Rizal Sukma, Indonesian Ambassador to the Netherlands I Gusti Wesaka Puja, Indonesian Ambassador to Belgium Yuri O. Thamrin, Indonesian Ambassador to the UN in Geneva Hasan Kleib, Deputy V Presidential Staff Office Jaleswari Pramodhawardani, and other embassy officials.

Minister Jonan said the policy aims to fuel oil prices across the whole of Indonesia similar to Java, especially in Papua and West Papua provinces. Jonan said there will be 33 districts that will be built fuel dealers until 2019.

"In 2017, there are a total of 57 points of BBM Satu Harga so that the price is equal to Java Island, of which 16 points are in Papua and West Papua," said Minister Jonan in Focus Group Discussion (FGD) with embassy officials on Tuesday / 1/2018).

In addition to the BBM Satu Harga policy, in the oil and gas development sector in Papua also through the development of infrastructure of Municipal Gas Network along the 3.898 Household Connection (SR) in Sorong City. It is planned that in 2018 the Municipal Gas Network will be built in 2 locations with 11,500 SR.

In the electricity subsector, the ESDM Ministry's commitment is very large in Eastern Indonesia. The electricity development program in Papua and West Papua is targeted at 514 MW completed until 2019. In addition, the rural electricity program is also continued to reach 186 thousand customers until 2019.

Another policy breakthrough for increasing access to electricity in eastern Indonesia is based on the New Renewable Energy sector (EBT) by distributing the LS Solar Energy (LTSHE) package to about 250,000 homes in 20 provinces.

The Energy Saving Solar Lamp (LTHSE) has illuminated 79,564 homes in 5 provinces and the government is targeting to provide LTHSE by 2018 twice that of 2017 of 175,782 units.

Minister Jonan asserted that priority policy for Papua and West Papua is a form of social justice for all Indonesian people. "As mandated by President Joko Widodo, BBM Satu Harga is a form of social justice and can be a unifier for the people of Indonesia," said Minister of EMR.
