JAKARTA (Rambu Energy) – The Indonesian downstream oil and gas regulator BPH Migas has selected state owned oil and gas company PT Pertamina and private company PT Aneka Kimia Raya Corporindo Tbk (AKR Corp) to distribute subsidized fuel in 2015.
The Head of BPH Migas Andy N. Sommeng said in Jakarta on Monday that both companies have met requirements to supply the subsidized fuel, including having enough retail fuel stations (SPBUs) to distribute the fuel.
Over the past years, both companies have won government bids to distribute subsidized fuel to consumers.
Sommeng however said that the government has yet to set amount of subsidized fuel quota to be distributed by both companies.
As of today, AKR Corp has built 131 fuel stations (SPBU) across the country. Of these, 54 fuel stations are located on Java Island, 41 in Sumaera, 33 in Kalimantan, two in Bali and one in Sulawesi. (*)
