State energy holding company Pertamina has allocated five fuel terminals (TBBM) and two avtur (jet fuel) stations that will operate 24 hours a day to anticipate a consumption jump during the 2018 International Monetary Fund-World Bank Annual Meetings in Bali.
The five fuel terminals are TBBM Sanggaran, TBBM Manggis, TBBM Reo, TBBM Maumere and TBBM Ende, while the two avtur stations are the Ngurah Rai depot and the Labuan Baju depot in East Nusa Tenggara, Pertamina communication and CSR regional operation V manager Rifky Rakhman Yusuf said in a press statement over the weekend.
“All five fuel terminals will be ready for 24 hours with existing and additional facilities to anticipate the hike of fuel consumption during the event," he said.
The IMF-World Bank Annual Meetings kicked off Monday and are set to accommodate at least 30,000 participants from 189 countries.
Rifky estimated fuel consumption in Bali to jump around 30 percent, with peak demand expected to hit seven days before the event and seven days after.
"For Labuan Bajo, we estimated that the increase of fuel consumption will be around 18.75 kiloliters per day with the assumption that 5,000 IMF-WB participants will visit the region," he said.
For avtur, Pertamina estimates that demand will increase by 30 percent at the I Gusti Ngurah Rai International Airport depot as the number of flights will increase from 16 to between 30 and 36 per hour.
Meanwhile for the Labuan Bajo depot, the number of flights is estimated to increase to 48 from only 15 per day. (bbn)
