In order to ensure that LPG filling is in accordance with the dosage, PT Pertamina Patra Niaga Regional Central Java visited and tested samples of 3 kg LPG filling simultaneously at the Central Java Bulk LPG Filling Station (SPBE).

Area Manager for Communication, Relations, & Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) of PT Pertamina Patra Niaga Regional Central Java, Brasto Galih Nugroho, revealed that this visit is routinely carried out every 3 months by carrying out Pertamina Way audits to ensure accurate quality and quantity of LPG for consumers.

"Checks were carried out at SPBE in Central Java, such as in the Semarang City area, Demak Regency, Pemalang Regency and Kendal Regency. Checking is carried out by checking the weight of the cylinder to see whether it meets the established standards, checking the printed documents, checking the gas filling machine for the cylinder at the SPBE (Unit Filling Machine/UFM). "The checking results show that the sample percentage complies with the provisions and the weight of the tube complies with the standard," said Brasto.

Testing of tube samples is carried out every day by SPBE as outlined in the daily sampling logbook. Sample testing is carried out on 3 tubes per UFM machine in the morning before operation to ensure that the UFM settings match the 3 kg weight of the contents.

The results of monitoring and checking are always reported to the LPG Bulk Filling and Transport Station (SPPBE) and are also reported internally to Pertamina Patra Niaga, especially the Central Java Region.

For information, the total weight of a 3 kg LPG product is 8 kg, consisting of a cylinder weight of 5 kg and an LPG content weight of 3 kg. Purchasing LPG at an official base, consumers can directly weigh the cylinder they want to buy. If it does not match the weight, the base is obliged to replace it.

Meanwhile, Regional Marketing Director, Mars Ega Legowo appreciated the synergy between the Ministry of Trade, Pertamina and the Ministry of Energy and Mineral Resources for monitoring LPG distribution so far.

"Through Pertamina Way (an audit system for all SPBEs by a competent and independent audit institution), it is hoped that all SPBEs can operate according to the established SOPs," explained Mars Ega.

In line with the statement above, Pertamina Patra Niaga Corporate Secretary Irto Ginting said that Pertamina Patra Niaga will continue to increase synergy with the Ministry of Trade and the Ministry of Energy and Mineral Resources, not only in monitoring, but also improving the system so that the distribution of 3 kg LPG runs well from filling at SPBE to to society.
