A total of 556 conversion packages were distributed to fishermen at the activities carried out at TPI Mangkang, Tugu District, Semarang City on Monday (2/12) attended by the Secretary of the Directorate General of Oil and Gas at the Ministry of Energy and Mineral Resources, Iwan Prasetya Adhi, Deputy Mayor of Semarang Hevearita Gunaryanti Rahayu, Plt. Head of Semarang City Maritime and Fisheries Service, Kistiyono and Pertamina MOR IV Sales Branch Manager of the City and Regency of Semarang, Alam Kanda.

According to Alam, as a fuel and LPG distribution agency, Pertamina will optimize the government's assignment related to the conversion of BBM to BBG by using subsidized 3 kg LPG for fishermen. "Small fishermen who use oil-fired outboard engines are our priority in their efforts to convert to natural gas using subsidized 3 kg LPG. The package provided consists of an engine, a conventer kit, a long axle, a propeller, 2 LPG cylinders, 3 kg and other supporting accessories (reducer, regulator, mixer, etc.) ", explained Alam. This program is mandated by Presidential Regulation No. 38 of 2019 concerning Provision, Distribution and Pricing of 3 kg Cylinder Liquified Petroleum Gas for Fishing Vessels for Target Fishermen and Water Pump Machines for Target Farmers.

Found in a separate place, Pertamina MOR IV Communication & CSR Unit Manager, Anna Yudhiastuti, said that Pertamina as a State-Owned Enterprise (SOE) will always fully support the optimization of the distribution of subsidized 3 kg LPG through this conversion program. "Previously, on the 23rd to 25th November 2019, we had carried out the same program together with the Ministry of Energy and Mineral Resources and the Demak Fisheries Marine Service distributing 206 fuel conversion packages to BBG at the Morodemak Coast Fisheries Port," said Anna. He added, in addition to small fishermen, the Government together with Pertamina also distributed and distributed this BBM to BBG conversion package to farmers, one of which had been carried out, namely in Sragen Regency on November 16, 2019 ago. "With this conversion program, farmers and small fishermen are expected to get more economic value from the results of farming and fishing because of the savings in fuel use. In addition, the distribution of subsidized 3 kg LPG has become the right target and another added value is reducing exhaust emissions that can reduce the level of environmental pollution, "concluded Anna.
