The commitment of the central government to equalize the price of fuel oil (BBM) in all regions of Indonesia continues. The Ministry of Energy and Mineral Resources (ESDM) has again inaugurated the One Price BBM distributor in the outermost, leading and underdeveloped (3T) areas.
This time it was the turn of the residents of Waigama, North Misool District, Raja Ampat Regency, West Papua who were able to enjoy fuel prices in accordance with the prices set by the Government through the presence of One Price Compact Fuel Filling Stations.
“With the operation of the Waigama Compact Gas Station today the community has finally obtained fuel oil according to the price set by the government. This was realized thanks to the support of the Regional Government, Military, Police, and related stakeholders.
“The establishment of this gas station is expected to have a positive impact on the economy and improve the quality of life and welfare of the Misool community,” Achdiat Atmawinata, Member of the National Energy Council (DEN) Achdiat Atmawinata, said on Wednesday (14 / 11/2018).
Achdiat said that the One-Price Fuel Oil is one of the priority agendas in the Joko Widodo and Jusuf Kalla Governments. The Ministry of Energy and Mineral Resources together with PT Pertamina (Persero) are also committed to continue to increase the number of the One-Price Fuel Oil distributor institutions throughout Indonesia.
“Through the One-Price Fuel Oil program, the Government and Pertamina are committed to continue to increase the number of fuel distributor institutions throughout Indonesia. This is one of the priority agendas in Nawacita Jokowi-JK: building Indonesia from the periphery by strengthening regions and villages within the framework of a unitary state,” he said.
AUPK DEN Rinaldy Dalimi, who was also present at the inauguration of the Compact Gas Station, stated that this SPBU is the seventh the One-Price Fuel Gas Station established in West Papua.
“The Waigama Compact Gas Station in North Misool is the seventh or the last gas station established in West Papua in the framework of the One-Price Fuel Oil program. Previously it had operated One Price Gas Station in Arfak Mountains (Anggi District), South Sorong (Inanwatan and Moswaren), Tambrauw (Sausapor), Teluk Bintuni (Manimeri), and Maybrat (Ayamaru),” Rinaldy said.
