Announcement! Pertalite Buyers Must Register From 1 July 2022

Jakarta, CNBC Indonesia – PT Pertamina (Persero) through its subsidiary PT Pertamina Patra Niaga plans to regulate the purchase of Special Assignment Fuel Types (BBM) such as Pertalite and also subsidized Solar Fuel. Pertalite buyers are required to register on the MyPertamina website starting July 1, 2022.

Pertamina will give time for Pertalite gasoline buyers to immediately register on the MyPertamina website. If the consumer has not registered until the specified time, then the consumer cannot buy Pertalite BBM, but is directed to buy other types of BBM products such as Pertamax Cs.

“Registration starts July 1, 2022, in the data first, if you want to register using a cellphone, you can use a computer. We are currently testing it, when they have registered, and will fill Pertalite fuel later, the gas station operator will see if the vehicle has been registered on MyPertamina,” said Corporate Secretary Pertamina Patra Niaga, Irto Ginting to CNBC Indonesia.

Irto said that his party would provide a registration period for buyers of the assigned fuel and subsidies. However, Irto has not been able to explain the time period while the consumer registration process is running.

“For example, if the consumer has not registered for one month, we apologize with a heavy heart, we will direct the Pertalite buyer to fill in Pertamax,” he said.

At the gas station level, Pertamina also continues to prepare a digitalization system, where vehicles that have been registered with MyPertamina will enter the system. Later, the gas station will use Electronic Data Capture (EDC) to check the number of vehicles or consumers who use the system barcode.

“Every 15 minutes the barcode system changes, he just has to scan it, the police number data and other data will come out. If they haven’t registered, their names won’t come out,” said Irto.

While the registration for the purchase of Pertalite is ongoing, Pertamina and the government are still discussing the criteria for luxury vehicles that are not allowed to buy Pertalite and subsidized diesel.

Head of BPH Migas, Erika Retnowati, said that in the future, every transaction to purchase Pertalite fuel and subsidized diesel at gas stations will be integrated with the My Pertamina application. Therefore, for people who are entitled to consume Pertalite and subsidized Solar, they must register first on the application system that has been prepared.

Later, the MyPertamina application will imitate the registration system contained in the Cares Protect Application feature which has been implemented so far to prevent the spread of Covid-19 cases. Even so, he realized that the implementation for the use of this application still encountered a number of challenges that were quite formidable.

“I think there are problems in the network and then also in remote areas, people who don’t have cellphones later on, we will also find a way out. Maybe going back to the manual route by entering the police number is an effort from us to continue to improve surveillance so that it is more targeted,” Erika said in a statement. Hearing Meeting with Commission VII, Thursday (23/6/2022).

The implementation of the MyPertamina application as a payment transaction tool for fuel purchases at gas stations is also still waiting for the proposed revision of Presidential Regulation (Perpres) No. 191 of 2014 concerning the Supply, Distribution and Retail Selling Price of Oil Fuel (BBM) along with technical instructions for purchasing Pertalite type fuel. first.

Erika herself targets the regulation to be completed no later than next September. That way, vehicles that are categorized as luxury vehicles can no longer drink subsidized diesel or Pertalite freely.

“Actually, we at BPH Migas have our own target. We want it to be implemented in August at the latest. But of course the authority is not with us, so we are waiting for the Presidential Decree to be called to discuss it,” said Erika.

Furthermore, Erika explained in the proposed revision of the Presidential Regulation, apart from re-identifying consumers who use subsidized diesel fuel, her party will also make changes to who has the right to use subsidized solar or Pertalite.
