INDUSTRY.co.id - Semarang - PT Pertamina (Persero) is preparing a strategy to deliver BBM and LPG to Karimun Jawa through Tanjung Mas Semarang and Jepara Ports.

MOR IV Communication & CSR Manager and Andri Titi Lestari said that sending BBM to Karimun Java is a priority right now, as the fuel supply in the location is depleted and shipments only use the Ship as a mode of transportation.

"Pertamina will continue to work on the fastest and safest way to send BBM and LPG to Karimun Jawa.As long as all are in accordance with standard procedures, HSSE standards, and getting a screen license from Syahbandar we will send it soon," Andar said.

Pertamina MOR IV has been preparing BBM to distribute BBM to Karimun Jawa since January 10, 2018 and then from the port of Tanjung Emas Semarang. However, the weather factor becomes the main constraint of delivery which resulted in the issuance of Sailing License by Syahbandar Tanjung Emas.

"Since January 10, 2018 the vessel has been prepared with a load of fuel in the form of Pertalite 65 KL, Bio Solar 45 Kl, Dexlite 5 KL, and total 115 Kl. Those number have to be optimized from the previously prepared only 75KL," said Andar.

He added that coordination with the authority of the port of Tanjung Mas, Jepara and Karimun is always done to monitor and monitor the weather conditions to get a screen permit from Syahbandar.

Related to the storage or bunkers, Pertamina has been using storage tank (tank timbun) in the gas station with a capacity of 90 KL and can cover 7 to 10 days.

"We will use the fuel carrier to be used as a floating storage with a capacity of 120 KL to cover the day much longer," explained Andar

Weather and safety factor is the main reason Syahbandar has not allowed Pertamina to ship carrying BBM and LPG to Karimun Jawa.

"If the Sailing License has been issued, then sending BBM to Karimun Jawa certainly can be done at the first opportunity" he added.
