Energy Minister Jonan Ensures Adequate Stock of Fuel

TEMPO.CO, Jakarta - Energy and Mineral Resources Minister Mineral Ignasius Jonan ensures that an adequate stock of fuel is maintained during Eid al-Fitr. The government and state-owned oil and gas company Pertamina will continue to monitor fuel and LPG supply in various regions, such as Jakarta and West Java, he said.

Pertamina has an anticipatory scenario called RAE (regular alternative on emergency) Plan in case of increased demand for fuel, Jonan said. He has asked Pertamina to join hands with the police and transportation office to secure fuel distribution line. "Not only in Jakarta and West Java, but also in regions across Indonesia," he said yesterday.
