Regional Administration Should Stop Asking for Additional Fuel Quota, says BP Migas
TEMPO Interactive, Jakarta:The Upstream Oil and Gas Regulatory Body (BP Migas) has urged regional administrations to help control subsidized fuel consumption in their respective regions.
BP Migas Oil fuel director Djoko Siswanto said that some regional administrations only demanded an extra quota when the discrepancy of subsidized fuel distribution in their regions was very significant. “Regional administrations should be active; they can provide coupons to ensure subsidized fuel reaches the proper target,” Djoko told Tempo on Tuesday, November 27.
Djoko said procedures to obtain an additional subsidized fuel quota are very complicated because the annual quota has already been determined by the government and the House of Representatives (DPR). Instead, he said, distribution quotas should be complied with.
