Pertamina will Tighten Supervision at Central Highlands

Published

Jayapura, Jubi – Fuel scarcity that hit the Central Highlands region, especially Jayawijaya, a few weeks ago needs attention from state oil and gas firm, PT. Pertamina Region VIII Maluku-Papua.

Retail fuel marketing manager Region VIII, Zibali Hisbul Masih said supervision will be tightened in the region to ensure fuel distribution meets the target.

“A few days ago we had a meeting with Commission II of Papua Legislative Council Papua. At the meeting we also discussed the distribution of fuel in Jayawijaya in particular, and the central mountains generally. Basically, we coordinated to find solutions so that people can get an affordable price of fuel, and fuel distribution right on target, “said Zibali Hisbul Masih via telephone on Tuesday (15/12/2015).

PT. Pertamina Region VIII also plans to increase oil and diesel fuel agents (APMS) in the Central Mountains region of Papua. If previously there are only four APMS, the next will be five APMS.

“We hope it will be a solution so that people can easily get fuel,” he said.

When meeting with Commission II, the two parties also discussed the possibility of adding fuel to the regions, only it has not been decided. One of the constraints of fuel distribution to the central mountains region is transportation.

“Distribution to the region can only use air transportation and still depend on the weather, “he said.

Chairman of Commission II of DPR Papua,Deerd Tabuni said, a number of districts in the central highlands of Papua supplied by Pertamina are Yalimo, Central Mambramo, Tolikara, Puncak Jaya, Lani Jaya, and Nduga.

“We hope that local governments also think of a solution for this problem like the aircraft for the distribution of fuel to the region, “said Deerd. (Arjuna Pademme/Tina)

Jayapura, Jubi – The Vice Chairwoman of the Commission V of the Papua House of Representative for Health and Education Maria Duwitau warned the provincial government not set a goal for Papuan children to be free from rubella and measles only on media.

She further said it is difficult to actualise this goal if the access to health services including the regular immunisation program has not been optimal since it has not reached remote areas yet.

“There is a query that should be answered immediately before the government’s commitment to free a million of children from the threat of rubella and measles,” said Duwitau on Thursday (7/6/2018).

Furthermore, she said if the Papua Provincial Government really committed to this goal, they should optimise the health services including the regular immunisation program by developing the local health facilities.

Meanwhile, the Head of Papua’s Health Office Aloysius Giyai admitted that this province still has a problem with the regular immunisation program. The participation rate is below 80 per cent in most districts, which is under the national target.

“Even in some districts with high participation rate, the Universal Child Immunisation (UCI) rate is also below 80 per cent,” said Giyai. (*)
