TEMPO.CO, Jakarta - State-owned oil company, PT Pertamina, will distribute fuel round the clock from upstream to downstream in order to meet the community needs that are projected to increase during Ramadan until Eid al-Fitr.

"We are committed to ensuring that the community's need for fuel is met during Ramadan and Eid al-Fitr this year," President Director of Pertamina Patra Niaga SH C&T Alfian Nasution stated in a press release received on Saturday.

In its energy provision efforts for Istiqamah, Pertamina will continue its hard work during Ramadan and Eid al-Fitr to distribute energy for the community on account of the fact that this year, the need for fuel, LPG, and also Avtur will be similar to the normal conditions before the COVID-19 pandemic struck, as the number of positive cases had declined.

"Currently, the trend of public energy consumption since the start of 2022 continues to show an increase and is close to the public consumption recorded before the pandemic," he pointed out.

To ensure fuel availability during Ramadan and Eid, Pertamina Patra Niaga continues to secure fuel to balance demand with supply distributed to the community.

"Currently, on an average all fuel products last for above 16 days; LPG, 13 days; and Avtur, above 33 days," Nasution remarked.

He forecast that energy demand in the Bangka Belitung area for the Pertamax Series fuel is projected to increase by 29.2 percent, while the Dex series has been experiencing a slight decrease from the current average daily consumption.

Meanwhile, an increase by 14.4 percent is projected for Pertalite, a slight rise from the current average daily consumption is forecast for Bio Solar, especially before Eid, and an increase from the average daily consumption is projected for avtur.

"With conditions in the community getting better, Pertamina Patra Niaga, as the Commercial & Trading Sub Holding of PT Pertamina, continues to be committed to ensuring availability for meeting the energy needs in the country," he concluded.
