goodmorningpapua.com – PT Pertamina (Persero) through the Sub-Holding Commercial and Trading Region of Papua-Maluku provides small-scale refueling points or Pertashops at 16 points to serve the community in the West Papua region.
A Unit Manager of Pertamina Communication and CSR for Papua- Maluku Regional, Edi Mangun in a press release in Jayapura, Saturday, said that Pertashop is an official distribution agency from Pertamina on a smaller scale than gas stations owned by Pertamina and has complied with the legality and HSSE or Health, Safety , Security, and Environment aspect.
He said, up to now, a total of 16 Pertashop points have been operating in the West Papua region, with details of 10 points spread from Manokwari to South Manokwari, 2 points in Kaimana, 1 point in Fakfak and 3 points in the Sorong area.
Pertashop is an effort to steadily provide easy access for the community, especially the West Papua region to get quality energy.
Pertashop is also, he said, an important part of the One Village One Outlet or OVOO program promoted by Pertamina. And since it was promoted in 2020 ago, Pertashop has been felt by the wider community.
It is said that with Pertashop, people can get closer and faster fuel oil (BBM) so they can cut the distance to the nearest gas station which can be several kilometers away.
Pertashop is a distribution agency aimed at fullfiling energy needs in the form of quality fuel for people whose locations have not been reached and have limited access to Pertamina gas stations so that they can have energy accessibility more easily than before.
Not only 16 points, Pertamina Region Papua-Maluku still plans to improve Pertashop services by steadily coordinate with the Regional Government to add outlets so that accessibility and distribution of energy can benefit the community, especially in West Papua.
“With the same price and quality as fuel sold at gas stations, we hope that Pertashop can be the answer to equitable distribution of energy that will have a sustainable effect on the economic development of the community,” added Edi Mangun.
