Downstream Oil and Gas Regulatory Body (BPH Migas), PT Pertamina and PT Telekomunikasi Indonesia, with the intent to control the volume of subsidized fuel (Diesel) and Special Fuel Assignments (Premium), have come upon a consensus in the implementation of a digitalization / IT-based policy on each nozzle in 5,518 Pertamina fuel stations of the total 7,415 fuel service stations.
"BPH Migas and Pertamina agreed to digitize its nozzles. The goal of 5,518 from 7,415 fuel stations is a data collection and control of PSO and non-PSO fuels to be carried out well," said Saryono Hadiwidjojo, BPH Oil and Gas committee member.
Once the nozzle at Pertamina's fuel stations are digitized, it will make it easier for BPH Migas to monitor and collect data on all volumes of PSO and non-PSO fuels distributed through fuel stations. Consequently, Pertamina will implement and ensure that the digitization system is completed by the end of 2018.
"Our best effort target is the end of the year, according to the mandate of the stakeholders, assisted by PT Telkom as Pertamina cannot reach the entire Indonesia," SVP Pertamina Corporate ICT Jeffrey Tjahja Indra said. He added that in future, one fuel station will comprise an average of 13 nozzles. From the total liters that are channeled, the company will convert into an electronic format, which is then sent to the data center to be changed into a number of reports and evaluations. This report will help BPH Migas conduct supervision and control.
Telkom Enterprise and Business Director Dian Rachmawan said that the company has not been able to explain in detail the funding requirements for the 5,518 SPBU digitization program. A third party is discussing fund calculations and business models.
Dian added that very soon, there would be a discussion about the budget and business concept, when it will be formulated. The budget estimation also has not been mentioned. However, a contract is being made. Source: Netral News PWKD16082018
