PSO Fuel Distribution in Different Regions Exceeds Quota1 May 2012
JAKARTA – Up to the first four months of 2012, the realization of PSO fuel distribution by PT Pertamina (Persero) has reached 14.1 million kiloliter or 107.4% higher than the 13.2 million kiloliter quota for the same period.
Based on Pertamina’s PSO fuel distribution data, up to 30 April 2012, the realization of Premium gasoline fuel reached 8.9 million kiloliter or 110% higher than determined quota of 8.1 million kiloliter. Meanwhile, the realization of Solar diesel fuel distribution for the same period reached 4.9 million kiloliter, or 107% of the 4.6 million kiloliter Pertamina’s quota stated in the APBN-P 2012 for the same period.
On the other hand, the realization of Kerosene distribution has been declining since the implementation of the Kerosene-to-LPG conversion program to urge the public to use LPG. The distribution of Kerosene reached 410,000 kiloliter or 73.1% of quota.
“In accumulation, the total PSO fuel distribution that is within the responsibility of Pertamina as stated in APBN-P 2012 up to 30 April has reached 14.1 million kiloliter or 107.4% of determined quota. If we compare the distribution against the same period last year, the total distribution shows an increase of 10%,” Vice President Corporate Communication of Pertamina Mochamad Harun.
Based on the distribution area, out of the 33 provinces in Indonesia, 23 of them have exceeded quota with the average realization of 107% of quota. The regions with the largest PSO fuel quotas are North Sumatera, Jakarta, Banten, West Java, Central Java, and East Java with distribution realization reached 113.2% of quota. Jakarta and West Java experienced the highest distribution excess at 128% and 116% respectively.
“The excess of distribution in the two regions were driven by the Premium gasoline distribution. Distribution of Premium in Jakarta and West Java reached 136% and 119% of quota respectively,” Harun said.
