State-owned oil and gas firm PT Pertamina plans to set up 22 gas-filling stations (SPBGs) and seven mobile refueling units (MRUs) worth US$180 million in total this year in a bid to accelerate energy conversion from fossil fuel to gas.
"Programs to convert fossil fuels to gas are very important in reducing fuel consumption in Indonesia," Pertamina media manager Adiatma Sardjito said in Jakarta on Wednesday as quoted by kontan.co.id.
According to the Energy and Mineral Resources Ministerial decree No. 2435/2014, Pertamina is tasked with setting up SPBGs and MRUs in Jakarta, Banten, West Java and Central Java.
Currently, the firm operates 23 SPBGs in Jakarta, East Java, South Sumatera and East Kalimantan.
Adiatma said that the company would spend Rp 1.53 trillion (US$133.11 million) from the state budget to develop 10 SPBGs and seven MRUs.
In addition, Pertamina has set aside $47 million from of its own funds to finance the remaining 12 SPBGs.
"We are preparing the tender and expect to complete the process by the end of July 2014," Adiatman said. (nfo)
