PT Pertamina (Persero) benefited from infrastructure development carried out by the government in the outermost, foremost, and remote (3T) regions.
Because it can save transportation costs in the implementation of the one-price fuel oil program. The one-price fuel oil Project Coordinator Price of Fuel Marketing Details Pertamina, Zibali Hisbul Masih, said that the construction of road infrastructure in the West Papuan region is not only beneficial for the community but also for Pertamina as the business entity tasked with distributing fuel.

“Wamena can supply to the four surrounding districts, Mangrango, Tengah, Yalimo, Tolikara. It has been like that it can be done by land now. Directly from Jayawijaya to Tolikara by plane, from Wamena to Tolikara by road. From Obano to Pangiya uses land,” he explained.
Zibali revealed, Pertamina must spend Rp. 40 thousand to Rp. 50 thousand for the cost of distributing fuel per liter, in implementing the one-price fuel oil program by plane. Whereas if the land line only costs Rp. 500 to Rp. 1,000 for each liter of fuel distributed.
“The most extreme use of tractor water (fuel transport aircraft) is Rp. 40-50 thousand per liter for the cost of my distribution, if the land costs are Rp. 500-1000 depending on the conditions of the terrain,” he said.
