INDUSTRY.co.id - Jakarta - The use of Liquefied Petroleum Gas (LPG) is observed to increase during the last days of the Eid-ul-Fitr holiday set by the Government. The National Post Report on the ESDM Sector on Wednesday (20/6/2018) noted that the distribution of LPG from Depot to SPBE (LPG Bulk Filling Station) increased 11% from the normal channeling rate.

Although the use of fuel gas is increasing, the Ministry of EMR ensures LPG stock conditions in normal condition with coverage days about 21 days.

In line with the increase in LPG consumption, the distribution of several types of gasoline fuel also increased. As from 31 May to 20 June 2018, Premiums increased by 23.9%, Pertalite increased 9.2%, and Pertamax increased 19%.

However, there are also some gasoline that recorded a decrease in consumption, although not very significant, such as Pertamax Turbo and Avtur which decreased 0.8% and 3.2% respectively.

Not only the type of gasoline that experienced changes in consumption during the Eid holiday. Gasoil fuels such as solar consumption declined by 8.7%, Pertamina Dex fell 0.7%, Dexlite dropped 6.8% and Kerosene fell 19.8%.

Fuel supply reported remains secure with coverage days between 21-49, with details of Premium: 21 days, Solar / Akrasol: 21 days, Pertalite: 22 days, Kerosene: 41 days, Pertamax / Akra92: 22 days, Pertamax Turbo: 39 days , Pertamina Dex: 49 days, Dexlite: 20 days, and Avtur: 28 days.

The supply of fuel into H + 5 Idul Fitri 1439 H is safely under control, as is the case with the provision of electricity on a national scale. In general, the national electricity supply is 31,301.91 MW with peak load at night of 26,994.29 MW.

On June 19, 2018 it was reported that there were 21 dots under normal circumstances, but 1 point was in idle condition due to Circuit Breaker (CB) interference. This CB disruption occurs in Jayapura System, uninterrupted supply, where there is still a power reserve of about 11%.

In the constraints, PLN has made various CB repairs and maneuvered several power plants as needed so that the electricity supply to the community can be done and expected to return to normal as soon as possible.
