Tempo Interactive, Jakarta: PT Pertamina (Persero), the state oil and gas company, will extend its marketing of bio-solar (automotive diesel oil) in Jakarta.

Hanung Budya, Pertamina’s Deputy Director of Commerce and Marketing, said that an additional 11 petrol stations will sell bio-solar.

The building of those petrol stations, said Hanung, is targeted to be finished this week.

He was not prepared to name the locations of the petrol stations.

Hanung only explained that the sales price of bio-solar would be Rp4,300 per liter.

“It’s still a subsidized price,” he said.

Hanung went on to say, there were already 16 petrol stations that are already selling non-oil fuels.

In the future, all petrol stations in Jakarta will no longer sell conventional automotive diesel fuels.

“So we will market bio-solar,” said Hanung in Jakarta.

According to Hanung, bio-solar will also be marketed in other major cities, including Surabaya.

Toharso, Pertamina spokesperson, said the socialization of bio-solar marketing in Surabaya will be carried out this week.
