INDUSTRY.co.id - Jakarta - PT Pertamina (Persero) will anticipate the peak or spike in LPG demand during Ramadan and Lebaran 2018 by 17 percent from normal conditions.

Pertamina's Pertamina Domestic Gas Vice President, Kusnendar, said that Pertamina is projected to increase LPG demand at its peak at H-7 Lebaran reaching 27,000 metric tons from the normal condition of 23,124 metric tons.

"The peak is approximately 17 percent, from year to year, usually 13 percent, but in 2018 we anticipate a week before Idul Fitri with an average of 17 percent prepared," said Kusnendar in a press conference at Pertamina Headquarters Jakarta, Wednesday (16 / 5/2018).

Kusnendar explained Pertamina during the Lebaran Task Force increased its stock and distribution of LPG by 4 percent from its normal condition of 23,124 metric tons to 24,113 metric tons.

Reflecting on last year's experience, the average LPG increase in Ramadhan and Lebaran reached 3 percent, but in anticipation, Pertamina increased its supply by 1 percent than usual.

Kusnendar explained the endurance of LPG stock is enough for 17.6 days, exceeding the national stock endurance by 11 days. In terms of distribution, Pertamina will alert 3,094 LPG PSO and non PSO agents and 31,612 LPG PSO bases across Indonesia.

"We will also alert 49 SPPBE bags in Java Island to ensure the smooth supply of LPG during the homecoming flow," Kusnendar said.

In the face of Ramadhan and Idul Fitri 1439 H, Pertamina has established Task Force (Satgas) BBM and LPG Idul Fitri 2018.

This Fuel Task Force is tasked with guarding the availability and smoothness of distribution to the entire territory of NKRI and serving the needs of BBM and LPG for the community, especially travelers during Fasting and Idul Fitri 2018.
