Jakarta, MINA – PT Pertamina (Persero) is accelerating the construction of six refinery projects. The six refineries consist of four constructions and two new refinery constructions.

PT Pertamina (Persero) ‘s Megaprocessing and Petrochemical Processing Director, Ignatius Tallulembang explained that the acceleration was to streamline discussions with partners and work on an early work program.

“Pertamina is very committed and will even accelerate to reach the target earlier. We will accelerate by accelerating. There are fast track steps,” Ignatius Tallulembang said at Pertamina’s Office, Wednesday on November 6, as quoted from Republika.

By building these six refinery projects, the refinery capacity will reach two million barrels per day. The increased refinery capacity can produce as much as 200 million liters of fuel per day.

In general, refinery construction takes seven to eight years. However, Tallulembang said all current processes can operate faster.

“As a whole, it’s 2027. But there are fast ones, like Balikpapan will be streamed in 2024. Then there will be Balongan which will be completed in October 2022,” he said. (T/Sj/P2)
