INDUSTRY.co.id - Jakarta - The Ministry of Energy and Mineral Resources (ESDM) once again simplified seven ministerial regulations (candy) to six candies.
The simplification is the Energy and Mineral Resources Ministerial Regulation No. 16 of 2011 on fuel distribution activities combined with Energy and Mineral Resources Regulation No. 26/2009 on the provision and distribution of LPG into ESDM Ministerial Regulation No. 13 of 2018 on fuel distribution activities, Gas Fuel (BBG), and liquefied pertoleum gas. In addition, ESDM Ministerial Regulation No. 27 of 2008 on oil and gas supporting business activities was revised into Energy and Mineral Resources Regulation No. 14 of 2018 on oil and gas supporting business activities.
Meanwhile, Minister of Energy and Mineral Resources Regulation No. 01 of 2011 on technical guidance of dismantling of offshore oil and gas installation, was revised to become Minister of Energy and Mineral Resources No. 15 of 2018 about post operation activities in upstream oil and gas activities.
"The three simplifications have been published and in the process of enactment in Kemenkumham and currently can be downloaded," said Plt Director General of Oil and Gas Ministry of ESDM Ego Syahrial, in his official statement, Thursday, March 1, 2018.
While the other three candy is currently still in the process of drafting, such as Energy and Mineral Resources Regulation No. 06 of 2016 regarding the determination of allocation and utilization and the price of natural gas is required revision of one or two articles.
"The Ministerial Regulation No. 37 of 2006 has actually been completed, but due to the simplification problem (simplification) of import procedures, which is still a bit more discussion with Mr. Wamen ESDM is the 387 year sweets revision on safety issues," said Ego.
Previously the Ministry of Energy and Mineral Resources in early February has simplified 32 regulations that now have impacted stakeholders in the upstream and downstream.
"Upstream feels the impact with foreign workers, then the current import permits to the online system, whereas in the downstream the previous permit holder to appoint the dealer took six months of internal selection, now we have cut," said Ego.
