MyPertamina: Are You Ready to Purchase Fuel by App?

The launch of MyPertamina, a fuel purchasing application made by PT. Pertamina Patra Niaga, has been a hot topic among the society. The application is integrated to LinkAja as the payment application. Starting from July 1, 2022, everyone who wants to purchase Pertalite and Diesel (Solar) fuel has to register themselves to MyPertamina App. Actually, what makes Pertamina establish this application?

MyPertamina exists to manage the purchase of subsidized fuel (BBM bersubsidi), including Pertalite and Solar. Pertamina wants the subsidized fuel to be right on the target and right on its quota. In addition to that, subsidized fuel is also regulated by Peraturan Presiden No. 191/2014. By registering to MyPertamina, it will be Pertamina’s reference to protect people who deserve the subsidized fuel. 

But, why does subsidized fuel need to be managed? According to Pertamina, subsidized fuel is often used by people who do not deserve to use it, or it can be said that subsidized fuel is channeled not on target. 80% of upper middle class people use subsidized fuel, while only 20% of lower middle class people use it. In fact, subsidized fuel is established for the lower middle class.
