Only Half of Baliís Gas Stations Can Sell Non-subsidized Pertamax Fuel

Of the 178 gas stations (SPBU) operating in Bali, only 50% have pumps supplying Pertamax - the unsubsidized premium gas that the government would like all private vehicles with engines in excess of 1,500 cc to be compelled to purchase.

The State Oil Company Pertamina's general manager for retail fuel marketing for Bali, Nusa Tenggara and East Java – Affandi, told Bisnis Bali on Tuesday, October 4, 2012, that his company will soon increase the number of outlets selling Pertamax to make it easier for the public to access the higher cost premium gas.

He explained: “There are not many gas stations selling Pertamax because the demand from the public for non-subsidized gas remains small. On the average the demand for Pertamax is about 1 percent of all demand for fuel in East Java and Bali.”

He said the daily use of Pertamax in Bali has reached 20 kiloliters per day. This compares to the 2,300 kiloliters of subsidized premium gas consumed on the island each day.

Affandi estimate that in order for all the gas stations in Bali to be able to sell Pertamax each station would need at have least one the underground fuel storage tanks to be converted to Pertamax storage.

Those stations with less than 3 tanks would need to invest Rp. 400 million (US$45,000) to add an additional storage tank and pumps required to sell non-subsidized fuel.

Affandi said he hoped that in a short period of time 50% of all the SPBUs that presently do not sell Pertamax will soon be able to do so.
