Pertamina International Refinery Cilacap Unit Affirms Sufficient Fuel Production & Supply for Nataru

Cilacap, December 26, 2021 PT Kilang Pertamina Internasional (KPI) Refinery Unit (RU) IV Cilacap ensures that the production and supply of fuel (BBM) is sufficient. It was emphasized by the General Manager of PT KPI RU IV Cilacap, Eko Sunarno, regarding the momentum of Christmas 2021 and 2022 new year (Nataru), Saturday (12/25/2021).

Eko explained, RU IV Cilacap plays a significant and strategic role as the largest refinery in Indonesia. "The capacity for processing crude (crude oil) in Cilacap reaches 348,000 barrels per day or about 33.4 percent National refinery capacity. It supports 60 percent of the fuel demand in Java," he said.

Furthermore, during the Nataru period, Eko ensured that the operation of the Cilacap refinery would continue to run safely and normally. "With more than 2,500 employees and partners, we are committed to carrying out the mandate and responsibility to maintain refinery operations at normal times and during the Nataru, which is expected to increase in demand for fuel and LPG in the community," said Eko.

Eko said that the refinery as a vital national object must be maintained along with its security so that operations do not experience disturbances from unexpected things. "Normal operations and the HSSE culture will be directly proportional to productivity. Therefore, fuel and LPG supply to the fuel terminal will also be sufficient," he added.

For this reason, Eko also said that every Pertamina employee must apply AKHLAK values ​​(Amanah, Kompeten, Harmonis, Loyal, Adaptif, dan Kolaboratif). Grom the Competent and Loyal holidays or religious holidays for Pertamina is interpreted not only as an obligation as workers, but there is a big responsibility mandated to Pertamina in maintaining and continuing the Indonesian economy through the availability of energy," he said.

Hopefully, everything will run normally, and the atmosphere will remain conducive. "People who celebrate Christmas and New Year can carry out their activities smoothly, in an orderly manner, and obey health protocols. May God bless us all," concluded Eko.**
