State-owned gas and oil company Pertamina said it would open 571 new fuel stations providing Premium fuel in Java, Madura, and Bali.
Pertamina acting president director Nicke Widyawati said the additional fuel stations were still under construction and currently re-conditioning the tanks and attach new signposts. However, she ensured the fuel stations would open on D day -7 of Eid al-Fitr.
There are 1,519 fuel stations providing Premium fuel across Java, Madura, and Bali and the number will increase up to 2,090 after the opening of the new fuel stations. The fuel stations can reportedly serve 8,000 litres of Premium per day.
Nicke explained the company had developed the Pertamina Go application to help consumers locate the nearest fuel station. Consumers can also find fuel stations via navigation-based application Waze.
During the 2018 Eid homecoming season, Pertamina will also provide 45 rest areas, 35 gas stations in toll rest areas, 63 kiosks providing Pertamax fuel, 13 Serambi Pertamax, 200 motorcycles providing fuel in packages, 20 fuel tanker trucks, and 105 fuel bags (BBM) at fuel stations
