Indonesia: Retailers Association Calls For Petronas & AKR Removel From Fuel Retail

Print E-mail
Friday, 19 February 2010
The association of fuel station owners Hiswana Migas is asking lawmakers to remove the government’s permits to allow PT Petronas Niaga Indonesia and PT AKR Corporindo (AKR) to distribute subsidized fuels, arguing that the presence of the two firms would damage the existing distributors. Hiswana Migas is representing owners of 4,509 fuel service stations and 588 marine service stations (serving the fishing industry).  Before the government allowed Petronas Niaga Indonesia into the subsidized fuel distribution market, Hiswana Migas had been the only non state player  distributing the fuels on behalf of the state oil company PT Pertamina.

“Sales volume in most of the existing stations has so far always been low or lower than 10,000 kiloliters. Thus, the appointment of the two private companies as the subsidized fuels distributors will further lower the sales volume,” Hiswana Migas’s chairman Mohammad Nur Adib told lawmakers from the House of Representatives Commission VII overseeing energy and mineral resources during a hearing last  week.

Adib further asked the lawmakers to amend the law on the liberalisation of the petroleum downstream business. “We suggest the law should be amended in a bid to protect the national interest,” he said. Since deregulation change was initiated in2001, several international oil companies have established fuel servcie stations in Indonesia’s major cities. The new fuel retailers were only allowed to sell non-subsidized fuels. But, starting from this year, Petronas Niaga Indonesia and AKR have been  selected by downstream oil and gas regulator BPHMigas to be involved in the distribution of subsidized fuels, which has long been monopolized by Pertamina.

However Petronas and AKR have been very restricted in the distribution of subsidised fuels by volume and geographical regions.
AKR is only allowed to distribute 56,500 kiloliters of subsidized diesel per year in Deli Serdang, Medan, Central Lampung, South Lampung, East Lampung, North Lampung, Bandar Lampung, Banjar Masin, and Pontianak.  Petronas is only allowed to distribute 20,440 kiloliters of subsidized Premium gasoline per year in four fuel stations in Medan, North Sumatra.
