INDUSTRY.co.id - Jakarta - PT Pertamina (Persero) recorded loss revenue from the sale of fuel oil (BBM) of Premium and Solar type until February 2018 amounting to Rp3.9 trillion. This is because there is no adjustment of fuel prices until 2019.
In a hearing with Commission VII of the House of Representatives (DPR), Pertamina's Marketing Director Muchamad Iskandar said the company has recorded the potential for additional cost of Premium and Solar fuel to February 2018.
