 Migas, however, decided later not to hold tender. Instead the agency decided to name distributors through selection and direct appointment. Distribution of subsidized oil fuels will be made by regions by companies, which are declared winners in selection in certain regions.

Despite the change in the system of selection, a number of companies especially those related to oil and gas business were still interested in taking part and submitted their biddings.

Ten of 13 companies indicating interest in the tender and taking bidding documents proceeded by submitting their bidding documents. They were PT Shell Indonesia, PT Petronas Niaga Indonesia, PT Petrobas Indonesia, PT Aneka Kimia Raya (AKR AKR Auroral Kilometric Radiation

Meanwhile, with the conversion of kerosene kerosene or kerosine, colorless, thin mineral oil whose density is between 0.75 and 0.85 grams per cubic centimeter. A mixture of hydrocarbons, it is commonly obtained in the fractional distillation of petroleum as the portion boiling off  fuel into LPG LPG: see liquefied petroleum gas.

, system of kerosene distribution was changed as BP Migas adopted regulation on the closed system of distribution for subsidized kerosene. The adoption of the system triggered new problem at the level of operators in the regions.

The new system forced them to set up additional distribution bases. Addition of thousands of distribution bases for subsidized kerosene is to secure distribution and prevent leaks that consumers in the A village do not have to go to the B village to buy kerosene. Each agent will have data of consumers to be served and the consumers hold card showing they are entitled to subsidy.

Distribution area for subsidized oil fuels are also to be expanded as proposed in a hearing with the Energy Commission of the House of Representatives. BPH Migas proposed expansion of Commercial Distribution Areas from four regions into 14 regions in 2010.

With the expansion, greater opportunity is open for private companies to get involved in the distribution of subsidized oil fuels. However, latest development showed that BPH Migas delayed the plan as the government has yet to revise the Presidential regulation No 71/2005 on Provision and Distribution of Certain Fuels that the options once surfacing to narrow the Commercial Distribution Region (WDN WDN Women Donors Network

Types of BBM (oil fuels) commodities

Avgas (Aviation Gasoline)

Avgas is produced from petroleum fraction. It is designed for aviation fuel for aircraft with engines having internal combustion system, pistons with ignition system ignition system

The performance of Avgas depends on its octane number octane number, figure of merit representing the resistance of gasoline to premature detonation when exposed to heat and pressure in the combustion chamber of an internal-combustion engine.  below 100 and above 100. The octane value of the type of Avgas circulating in Indonesia has a value of 100/130.

Avtur (Aviation Turbine)

Avtur is a special type of BBM produced from extraction of petroleum The extraction of petroleum is the process by which usable petroleum is extracted and removed from the earth. Locating the oil field
Nowadays, geologists use seismic surveys to search for geological structures that may form oil reservoirs.
. Avtur is designed as fuel for aircraft having turbine engines types ((external combustion). The performance or the quality of avtur is determined by the purity of the fuel, turbine combustion model and the durability of structure at low temperature.


Gasoline is the general name for many types of BBM for engines with ignition system. In Indonesia, there are several types of gasoline with different ignition quality. The quality levels of gasoline are based on the value of their RON (random Octane Number). Based on the RON gasoline consists of three types:

* RON 88 or widely known as Premium (the brand of Pertamina) is a distillated type of BBM in clear yellowish color. The yellow color comes from dyestuff. This fuel is used for motor vehicle with gasoline engine gasoline engine: see internal-combustion engine.

Most widely used form of internal-combustion engine, found in most automobiles and many other vehicles.
 such as cars, motorcycles, outboard motor, etc.

* RON 92 or known as Pertamax (a trade mark of Pertamina) is used for engines needing high octane and unleaded gasoline, especially that using technology equivalent to electronic fuel injection and catalytic converters.

* (RON 95) or Pertamax Plus (also a brand of Pertamina) meets the performance standard of. International World Wide Fuel Charter (WWFC WWFC Wycombe Wanderers Football Club

There are also modern diesel fuel which has met the waste gas emission standard Emission standards are requirements that set specific limits to the amount of pollutants that can be released into the environment. Many emission standards focus on regulating pollutants released by automobiles (motor cars) and other powered vehicles but they can also regulate  of EURO 2, having high performance with cetane number of 53 and more, having high quality with sulfuric content of below 300 ppm.

Biodiesel is an alternative to petroleum-based diesel fuel and is produced from renewable sources such as vegetable or animal oils. Chemically, biodiesel is fuel from a mixture of mono-alkyl ester long chain fatty acid fatty acid, any of the organic carboxylic acids present in fats and oils as esters of glycerol. Molecular weights of fatty acids vary over a wide range. The carbon skeleton of any fatty acid is unbranched. Some fatty acids are saturated, i.e. .

Diesel Oil (MDF (1) (Main Distribution Frame) A wiring rack that connects outside lines with internal lines. It is used to connect public or private lines coming into the building to internal networks. )

Diesel oil is produced through oil distillation in black color, liquid in low temperature. Normally it has low sulfur content and could be used by Medium Speed Diesel Engine in industrial sector. Therefore, diesel oil is said Industrial Diesel Oil (IDO Ido (ē`dō), short name of Esperandido, an artificial language that is a simplified version of Esperanto. See international language. ) or Marine Diesel Fuel (MDF).

Fuel Oil (MFO MFO Mixed function oxidase, see there )

Fuel oil is not the product of distillation but it is a residue in black color. This type of oil has higher concentration compared with diesel oil. This cheap fuel is generally used for direct burning. Fuel oil is not far different from Marine Fuel Oil (MFO).

Volume of subsidized BBM (oil fuels) distributed

The volume of subsidized oil fuels distributed in 2009 rose 3% to 36.8 million kiloliters from 2008. The increase was contributed more by Premium gasoline which grew in volume from 16.98 million kiloliters in 2008 to 19.4 million kiloliters in 2009. Distribution of. Kerosene fell on the growing use of LPG substitute.

The government through BPH Migas proposed BBM subsidy to the House of Representatives for 2010 BBM totaling 36.50 million kiloliters, consisting of 21.54 million kiloliters of Premium, 3.80 million kiloliters of kerosene and 11.25 million kiloliters of diesel oil.

The program of converting kerosene with LPG continues progressing that the volume of subsidized kerosene proposed by the government in 2010 is reduced considerably by 34% from the subsidy for 2009

Value of BBM (oil fuels) subsidy

Subsidy on oil fuels (BBM) in 2007 shot up to Rp91 trillion from Rp55.6 trillion previously set for the revised 2007 state budget. The surge came with the soaring prices of crude oil toward the end of that year. In 2008, the subsidy on BBM continued to swell to follow the soaring prices of crude oil reaching US$ 120 per barrel, that BBM subsidy was set at Rp101.4 trillion.

The decline n the price of crude oil in the world market toward the end of 2008 and falling demand for kerosene on the use of LPG as substitute in the country resulted in a decline in BBM subsidy to Rp100.6 trillion in 2009.

Developments of BBM (oil fuels) prices

The prices of subsidized oil fuels are set by the government as apart from the fact it pays the subsidy, oil fuels concerns the interest of the people in general.

Among the subsidized types of BBM are kerosene for household and small industries, gasoline of RON 88, and diesel oil for use by small industries, transport and public services Public services is a term usually used to mean services provided by government to its citizens, either directly (through the public sector) or by financing private provision of services. .

The retail prices of subsidized oil fuels are set based on the average price a month ahead of the reference price of Mid Oil Platts of Singapore (MOPS) plus distribution cost and 13.5 % margin.

The retail and reference prices are set on a Presidential regulation. The prices of subsidized oil fuels were last determined with Presidential regulation. Meanwhile, the prices of other types of BBM are left to be dictated by the market.

The retail price of Premium is set at Rp4,500 per liter in 2009, down from Rp5,000 in 2008--or the same as in 2007. The price of kerosene is stable at Rp2,500 per liter since 1008. The price of automotive diesel oil as was the price pf Premium rose to Rp4,800 before falling to Rp4,500 by August 2009..

Distribution Subsidized oil fuels

Distribution system

Pertamina is the main distributor of subsidized oil fuels in Indonesia and controls distribution facilities for retail sales of subsidized BBM.

Pertamina has a number of fuel filling station facilities such as Industrial fuel filling station (SPBI), Armed forces fuel filling station (SPBA SPBA Sandy Plains Baseball Association (Marietta, GA)
SPBA Swiss Private Bankers Association
SPBA Society of Professional Benefit Administrators
SPBA Singapore Promising Brand Award
SPBA Scottish Pipe Band Association
) and General fuel filling station (SPBU), and has several categories of agent and other facilities to support distribution of subsidized oil fuels. The facilities include :

1. SPBI (Fuel filling stations for industry). SPBIs are owned and operated by industrial companies built with specifications set by Pertamina. Each SPBI has BBM allocation under contract with Pertamina. Under the new Law on oil and gas SPBIs are allowed to receive BBM from other suppliers.

2. SPBA (Fuel filling stations for the armed forces). SPBAs are owned and operated by the armed forces including the army, the navy, the air force and the police built with specifications set by Pertamina. The stations serve only motor vehicles of the armed force without payments.

3. PSPD PSPD Palm Springs Police Department
PSPD People's Solidarity for Participatory Democracy
PSPD Professional Services Procurement Directorate
PSPD Powder Springs Police Department (Georgia)
PSPD PSP Developer
 (Premium Solar Packed Dealer) is fuel filling agent named by Pertamina like SPBU but without fuel filling units. PSPDs are owned and operated by private company serving vehicles on land or in waters that could not be reached by SPBU. PSPDs are given the same prices as for SPBU. Under the new law on oil and gas PSPDs are allowed to serve as agent and fuel suppliers for companies other than Pertamina.

4. Premium Diesel Oil Agents (APMS APMS Alternative Provider Medical Services (UK)
APMS Aviation Performance Measuring System
APMS Automated Program Management Information System
APMS Advanced Plant Management System
APMS Automated Performance Measurement System
) are named by Pertamina as a private agent to serve motor vehicles on land and in waters that could not be reached by tanker trucks as the location is across river or sea. The fuel is transported from depot of Pertamina by the agent on its own cost. The agent is given a price he same as given to SPBU. Under the new law on oil and gas, an APMS is allowed to serve as agent for BBM producers other than Pertamina.

5. Rural Cooperative Units (KUD) are named by Pertamina as the distributors based on a joint decision No. 008/Kpts/DM.Migas/1984 and No. 75/Buk/IV/1984 in 1984 of the Oil and Gas Director General and Cooperatives Development Director General. They would become distributors for oil companies other than Pertamina.

6. Consumer Pool is a privately owned fuel distribution facility established by a group of fuel consumers to supply Premium gasoline especially for their own consumption. This facility was set up for areas that could not be reached by ordinary distributors.

7. Aircraft Filling Depot (DPPU DPPU Dyadic Protocol Processor Unit
DPPU Dual Protocol Processor Unit
) is owned and operated by Pertamina to serve aircraft using re-fueler or dispenser directly from tanker truck to aircraft.

8. AIRCRAFT FUEL DEPOT is a fuel depot owned and operated by Pertamina to serve aircraft that could not be reached by DPPU, using gasoline trucks and other containers. The airline is responsible for carrying fuel it needs from Pertamina's fuel depot.

9. KEROSENE AGENT is an agent distributing kerosene from depots of Pertamina. Kerosene is distributed through retail shops directly to the consumers.

10. SPBB (Fuel filling station for Bunker). This facility constitutes a bunker of Pertamina equipped with pipe and barges or in emergency with tanker trucks to transport fuel from Pertamina's terminals directly to bunker and then to a tanker ship.

Premium and diesel oil have almost the same distribution system. The distribution system is different for kerosene especially with the conversion into LPG.

Closed distribution system for kerosene to be stopped

The closed distribution system using control card for kerosene launched for the first time in April 2008, will likely be no longer used as the conversion from kerosene to LPG has been well in progress. Most kerosene used have chosen LPG.

According to according to
1. As stated or indicated by; on the authority of: according to historians.

2. In keeping with: according to instructions.

 Minister of Energy and Mineral Resources (ESDM ESDM Electronic Software Delivery and Management ) Purnomo Yusgiantoro, the program has to be carried out in flexible way by taking into consideration the condition in the field.

The Downstream Oil and Gas Regulator (BPH Migas) has adopted the closed distribution system for the distribution of subsidized kerosene. For that purpose census of the users of subsidized kerosene has been carried out in 63 regencies.

The application of the closed system of distribution is to better guarantee that the distribution of subsidized kerosene would be properly done.

Closed system of distribution is a distribution system for subsidized kerosene using control card, which shows the name, address and monthly kerosene share of the holder. PT Pertamina as the Public Service Obligation (PSO PSO - Oracle Parallel Server ) based on the control card, PT Pertamina as the Public Service Obligation (PSO) agent will serve the purchase of subsidized kerosene. Pertamina, therefore will sell kerosene just to meet the consumers' need not their request.

Census was held in 2006 on 10 regencies and in 2007 to cover 63 regencies altogether including in Sumatra, Java, Kalimantan, Sulawesi, East Nusatenggara (NTT NTT Nippon Telegraph and Telephone Corporation
NTT New Technology Telescope
NTT National Technology Transfer, Inc
NTT Name That Tune (TV game show)
NTT National Tree Trust
NTT Number Theoretic Transform
). In 2008 census continued in other regions. The censuses also show whether the kerosene consumption of 3.75 liter per person a month as has been used as a reference, is correct.

Open distribution system which has been used so far for subsidized kerosene is more liable to deviation misuse. Frequent shortage in supply with queuing buyers indicates deviations.

BPH Migas has used the control card program in the distribution of subsidized kerosene in 2009 in cooperation with PT Pertamina (Persero). In order to smoothen the implementation of the program, BPH Migas involves regional administrations.

During 2008, BPH Migas took record of the users of kerosene in 14 regencies /cities outside Java and socialized the use of the card. The regencies includes Aceh Besar, Simalungun, Tanjung Pinang Tanjung Pinang or Tanjungpinang is the capital and largest town of the Indonesian province of Riau Islands. The city with 150,000 residents ) and is a trading port between islands in the Riau archipelago. , Solok, Bangka, Jambi, Tulang Bawang, Pontianak, Kepahiang, Banjarbaru, Maros, Kota Bima, Manggarai Barat and Muna.

Regencies/cities which already implemented the program earlier include Magelang, Solo, Kudus, Pemalang, Purwakarta, Subang, Karawang, Lamongan, Mojokerto, Kediri, Madiun, Yogyakarta, Bontang, Banjarbaru, Medan, Makassar, Maros, Manado and Gorontalo.

In the same year, BPH Migas named agencies in Kota Purwakata, Subang, Karawang, Bogor, Surakarta, and Sragen, and in the Lamongan district and a number of regencies in East Java East Java (Indonesian: Jawa Timur) is a province of Indonesia. It is located on the eastern part of the island of Java and also includes neighboring Madura and Bawean islands. .

Division of Commercial Distribution Areas (WDN)

Downstream Oil and Gas Regulatory Agency regulatory agency

Independent government commission charged by the legislature with setting and enforcing standards for specific industries in the private sector. The concept was invented by the U.S.
 (BPH Migas) finally decided to continue using four commercial distribution areas (WDN) in selecting companies distributing and providing subsidized BBM for 2010.

A committee member of the BPH Migas Jugi Prajogio said the decision to continue using four WDNs was made as the government had not revised the Presidential regulation No. 71/2005 on Provision and Distribution of certain type of fuels. Therefore, an option to split the WDN into 14 smaller areas for 2010 could not be implemented.

Head of the BPH Migas Tubagus Haryono said BPH Migas will continue to seek the use of 14 regional distribution bases for BBM as earlier proposed.

The 14 regional bases include regional 1 in Northern coast of western part of Sumatra, regional 2 in Northern coast of eastern part of Sumatra, regional 3 in Southern part of Sumatra West Kalimantan West Kalimantan (Indonesian: Kalimantan Barat often abbreviated to Kalbar) is a province of Indonesia.

BBM (Oil Fuels)Distribution Facilities

Pertamina still maintains domination of oil fuels (BBM) market in the country controlling distribution facilities for retail sales. Most units of SPBU (Fuel filling station for the public) in Indonesia are operated in cooperation with Pertamina. Units of SPBU not controlled by Pertamina totaled less than 50 units in 2007 located mainly in Jakarta and nearby areas.

There are three system of SPBU management in the country--COCO (company own company operate), CODO CODO Change of Degree Objective (education)

** Storage Facilities

BBM storage facilities include depots, tanks and floating storage.

1. Installations/Transit Terminals/Main Depots. The facilities function to receive and store BBM from oil refineries to be transported and distributed to other depots or storage tanks or directly to the end of users. Pertamina operates 14 units of fuel installation or terminal transits, 107 depots in Indonesia including 84 sea-fed depots and 23 inland depots, 39 standard DPPU (Airport Refueling Depots) in addition to 15 pioneer DPPUs.

2. Storage Tanks. This facility is to hold BBM before being transported to consumers or units of SPBU.

3. Floating Storage. This facility is used for imported crude oil or oil products. Units of floating storage include :

a. Teluk Semangka receiving crude oil from Middle East to feed the Cilacap oil refiner.

b. Teluk Jakarta, which functions as a diesel oil supply point for Jakarta, Semarang and Surabaya and supply point of imported crude oil.

c. Pulau Sambu. This facility functions to store low sulfur waxy waxy (wak´se)
1. composed of or covered by wax.

2. resembling wax, especially denoting some combination of pliability, paleness, and smoothness and luster.
 residue (LSWR LSWR London & South Western Railway ) from the Balikpapan refinery

d. Semi Floating Storage. This is a small floating storage facility and semi permanent in Bali, Nusa Tenggara, North Sulawesi and Maluku.

Other than Pertamina, currently there are a number of other players in the BBM storage business such as PT. Petro Andalan Nusantara, PT. Redeco Petrolin Utama, PT. AKR Corporindo, PT. Patra Niaga, PT. Source Alam Utama West Kalimantan, and PT. Dover Chemical.

** BBM (Oil Fuels) Transport Facilities

The transport facilities used for BBM from oil refineries are:

1. Tankers : ships operated by Pertamina. The tankers are owned or chartered by Pertamina.

2. Tanker trucks, used for the transport of BBM from one depot to the other depots of Pertamina and then to units of SPBU, SPBI, SPBA, APMS, DPPU, kerosene agents, KUDs, bunkers and other distribution facilities serving the consumers directly. The tanker trucks are owned either by Pertamina or by the operators of SPBU, SPBI, SPBA, etc. Transport of aviation fuels is generally handled by three parties excepting for DPPU, which uses the facility of Pertamina.

3. BARGES are used in areas where river transport is more commonly used. Barges are generally operated and operated by private companies. Currently there are 12 units of barge with a total capacity of 35,508 DWT DWT
1. deadweight tonnage

2. deadweight tons

4. RAIL TANK WAGONs are transport facility used in Java, North Sumatra and South Sumatra where there are railway transport facilities. The facility is owned and operated by PT Kereta Api Indonesia (PT KAI) on contract with Pertamina, which is responsible for the distribution of fuels. There are 991 units of tanker wagons operated by PT KAI, 694 units of which are owned by PT KAI, and the rest or 297 units are owned by Pertamina.

5. Fuel Transports System with pipes. In some areas BBM is distributed through pipelines. Currently this system is used in some areas such as :

a. From the Cilacap refinery to Tasikmalaya, Ujung Berung and to depots in Padalarang in West Java.

b. From the Cilacap refinery to Maos and to depot of Rewulu in Central Java.

c. From the Pangkalan Brandan refinery to Pangkalan Brandan in North Sumatra.

d. From the Balikpapan refinery to depots in Balikpapan in East Kalimantan.

e. From the Dumai refinery to depot in Dumai in Riau.

Other than Pertamina currently there are 23 other players operating in BBM transport business in Indonesia.

Pertamina remains the main player in BBM (oil fuels) distribution

Market situation in which producers are so few that the actions of each of them have an impact on price and on competitors. Each producer must consider the effect of a price change on the others.
 market structure as it does not want to go too far in liberalizing the system that could hurt PT Pertamina as well as the interest of people in general.

Based on the Oil and Gas Law, allowing any company to carry out the public service obligation (PSO) in the distribution of subsidized oil fuels, should come into effect 23 November 2005, to coincide with the termination of the PSO of PT Pertamina.

The government is not yet ready to fully implement the law especially concerning the technical regulations, therefore, the PSO was adopted only on 1 January, 2006. After the PSO with a new system was adopted, there was no company other than Pertamina ready with the required infrastructure. Pertamina, therefore, remains the only one assuming the BBM PSO until 2009.

The Downstream Oil and Gas Regulatory Agency (BPH Migas) said it is possible for other companies to take limited part in the distribution of subsidized oil fuels starting 2010 but the priority is still for Pertamina.

In addition any companies involved in the distribution of subsidized oil fuels must be in cooperation with Pertamina to guarantee that the state company will maintain the position as the main player.

The government does not want the market of subsidized oil fuels is liberalized into a competitive market. Under the oligopoly market structure, Pertamina is expected to control up to 80% of the market.

Competition in SPBU (gas stations) business sharper

Pertamina is seeking to continue to improve its services to meet sharper competition in the business of operating public fuel filling stations (SPBU). Currently there are 4,300 units of SPBU, but only 687 units already secure the Pasti Pas (precision guaranteed) certificate

Pertamina has set a target that 1,000 units of its SPBU will secure the certificate by the end of 2009 and in 2010, its entire SPBU units are to have the certificate.

Later Pertamina will put in ranks all SPBU having the certificate based on their performance, all entitled to incentive depending on their ranks, which include categories of Silver and Gold.. The margin for those not yet up to standard is Rp180 per liter and ones in Silver category to have an incentive of Rp200 per liter. If they could maintain the rank for three months the margin will be increased by Rp5--Rp30 per liter and if they could maintain the good service for a year they would win the rank of Gold category and if it goes for another year the rank will be promoted to Diamond

PT Shell Indonesia has also continued to open new SPBU. Its Vice President Wally Saleh said the increase in number is to meet growing demand for the service in the future. Shell plans to open one or two more units in Jakarta. Currently Shell has 20 units of SPBU in Jakarta.

Petronas, through PT Petronas Niaga Indonesia plans to build more than 400 units of SPBU until 2011. The new units will be built in Java, Sumatra and Kalimantan. In the period of 2005-2006, Petronas built 5 units of SPBU, and in 2006-2007, it had 30 more units unit SPBU. In 2007-2008 it build again 65 units and in 2008-2009, there were 10 more units. In 2009-2010 it plans to have 147 new units of SPBU and 200 units in 2010-2011.

Meanwhile, PT Total Oil Indonesie also has target to build five units of SPBU by the end of 2009. The five units will be opened in Jakarta, Depok, Bogor, Tangerang, and Bekasi. A company official Rulianti Syahrul said currently Total has two units of SPBU in Jakarta. PT Total Indonesia is the owner but the operator is its partner.

The SPBU of Total sell only non-subsidized BBM. The types of its BBM are one with octane 92 the class of Pertamax (Performance 92), gasoline with octane 95, the class of PertamaxPlus (Performance 95) and diesel oil the class of Pertamina Dex DEX - A cross between Modula-2 and C by W. van Oortmerssen.

Amiga version 1.2.
 (Performance Diesel).

Performance 92 is sold at a price of Rp 5,900 per liter, Performance 95 at Rp 6,500, and Performance Diesel Rp 6,900. The prices are more or less the same as those put up by Pertamina and Shell.

Prospects of business in BBM (oil fuels) distribution

The prospects of business in the distribution of subsidized oil fuels are encouraging with fast growing demand. The oligopoly systems opens greater opportunity for non Pertamina companies to get a share in the profitable business. Non Pertamina distributors are allowed to operate only in certain regions, but they are required to have the capacity to handle distribution in at least two WDNs.

With limited distribution facilities, however, it would be difficult for other companies to challenge the domination by Pertamina in the near future. Pertamina already has all the facilities needed almost in all parts of the country.

The condition may soon change with plan to split the 4 WDNs into 14 allowing more non Pertamina companies to operate in the business with smaller coverage of distribution system compared with the networks required in only four WDNs.

Shell and Petronas are potential competitors for Pertamina as they have continued to expand their networks of SPBU in Indonesia.


The government of Indonesia has scrapped the monopoly system in the distribution of subsidized oil fuels in a bid to create a healthy market competition, which is expected to lead to greater efficiency n the business sector.

The government, however, is set to keep Pertamina as he dominating player to better guarantee supply of the vital requirement of the people. Control by the government is still needed to secure supply in all regions.

Although the government has not fully liberalize the market of subsidized oil fuels, the private companies still see opportunity in the business especially in storage, transport and retail sales.

Strong interest has been shown by foreign investors such as Shell, Petronas and Total Indonesie, which have invested much especially in the development of SPBU units and distribution facilities.
