INDUSTRY.co.id - Jakarta - Realized subsidized fuel oil in 2018 to May was recorded at 5.85 million Kilo Liter (KL) or 10% lower than the allocation in APBN 2018.
The ESDM Ministry noted that the allocation of Solar in APBN 2018 amounted to 15.6 million KL a year or an average of about 6.5 million KL for 5 months.
While the realization of subsidized diesel in 2017 amounted to 14.51 million KL or an average of 1.2 million KL per month or 6.05 million KL for 5 months.
This means that the realization of the first 5 months of 2018 amounted to 5.85 million KL, also still lower than the average 5 months last year which amounted to 6.05 million KL.
