ARE WE RUN OF FUEL
Recently PLN cut off their supply, the reason was they were run of fuel or cash flow problems?, so they have to cut off the supply.. in several areas experiencing fuel shortages, motorists in Lombok in West Nusa Tenggara, Semarang, Surabaya and Medan have had problems finding Premium fuel over the past few days. ...
The supplies arrived a week ago but PERTAMINA could not unload them as it did not have sufficient funds to pay... some local media predict if the authority couldn't handle this situation, it might be create a chaos situation..
so exactly are we run of fuel or cash? ouch I can't imagine.. are we really in danger? Hope everything would be okay, oo please Mr President fix it.. we are count on you.
The truth is : we has to import 300,000 bpd of crude oil for processing at Pertamina's refineries, which have a total processing capacity of one million barrels of crude oil per day. To fulfill domestic demand, Pertamina also needs to import 400,000 bpd of fuel products.
