Bali, and Nusa Tenggara (Pertamina MOR V Jatimbalinus) continues to optimize the distribution of fuel and LPG to meet the energy needs of the people of East Java, Bali and Nusa Tenggara region.

Specifically for the Bojonegoro regency, which was allegedly a 3 kg LPG vacuum, Pertamina's Pertamina Communication & CSR Communications & CSR Manager Unit MOR V Jatimbalinus Rifky Rakhman Yusuf said Pertamina increased the total distribution of 99,120 tubes, equivalent to 320% of the normal allocation during June 2018.

For June 19, 2018, Pertamina distributed 32,840 tubes equivalent to 104% of normal distribution, while the realization that was absorbed in the community and sold at the base level was 31,720 tubes. This means that the stock in the base still left 1120 tubes.

"Extra dropping is a form of anticipation and support to residents of Bojonegoro Regency to fulfill their daily energy needs," he said on Thursday (21/6/2018).

While for East Java Pertamina predicts an increase in average consumption of 7 percent of normal consumption of 94,679 Metric Ton (MT) / month to 101.307 MT / Month.
