Official Facts about Pertalite in 2024! Starting to be Limited and Subsidized Fuel Replaced with Pertamax

Here are the official facts regarding the fate of Pertalite as a subsidized fuel in 2024.

Since mid-2023, there have been rumors about the removal of Pertalite as a subsidized fuel and its replacement with Pertamax Green 92.

Entering 2024, new regulations regarding the restriction of Pertalite purchases have been revealed by the government.

The regulations regarding the restriction of subsidized fuel purchases, specifically Pertalite, are currently being prepared.

In mid-2022, BPH Migas proposed the limitation of Pertalite purchases by the public to control the consumption of subsidized fuel and prevent it from exceeding the state budget quota.

However, this policy is still awaiting the revision of Presidential Regulation Number 191 of 2014 regarding the provision, distribution, and retail price of fuel.

The restriction on Pertalite purchases aims to ensure that subsidized fuel consumption is targeted and does not burden the state budget.

The Head of BPH Migas, Erika Retnowati, stated that they are currently waiting for the revision of the Presidential Regulation to regulate the restriction on Pertalite usage.

“So we wait, once the revision of the Presidential Regulation is issued, then we can regulate the restriction on Pertalite,” said Erika quoted from Tribunnews.com, Saturday, January 13, 2024.

The revision of the Presidential Regulation is crucial to specify the classification of Pertalite users. Currently, clear restrictions on fuel consumption only apply to the use of Solar.

With this revision, it is expected to clarify the types of consumers who are eligible to use Pertalite.

“The regulation for subsidized fuel will be regulated in the Presidential Regulation. In this Presidential Regulation, it will be determined who the consumers are,” explained Erika.

It should be noted that the allocation of Special Assignment Fuel (JBKP) Pertalite for 2024 is 31.7 million kiloliters (kl), which is lower than the 2023 allocation of 32.56 million kl.

The quota determination in 2024 is based on the realization in 2023, which only reached 30 million kl or about 92.24 percent.
“So this is slightly smaller than 2023 because we looked at the realization in 2023, which was around 30 million kl,” said Erika.

Pertalite to be Removed in 2024

In 2024, the government plans to remove Pertalite fuel.

This proposal was put forward by the CEO of Pertamina in mid-2023.

Pertamina is currently studying the blending of Pertalite with 7 percent ethanol, which will result in Pertamax Green with RON 92.

The Minister of Energy and Mineral Resources, Arifin Tasrif, stated that they have no objections if the proposal is implemented.

However, Arifin requested that Pertamina be able to produce this type of fuel without adding to the budget burden.
