Fuel demand for transportation to grow by 13%: Deputy minister

The Energy and Mineral Resources Ministry estimates that demand for refined fuels by vehicles will grow by 13 percent every year, said Deputy Minister Arcandra Tahar on Monday.

It means that the projected growth will exceed the national economic growth of about 5 percent per annum.

"This is a sign that our focus must be the gasoline to gas conversion program," he said during the launch of a gas station road show as part of the opening of the 11th Natural Gas Vehicles and Infrastructure Indonesia Conference and Exhibition.

Indonesia started introducing converter kits for vehicles to use compressed natural gas (CNG) and liquefied gas for vehicles (LGV) in 2012 in its efforts to convince consumers to move from gasoline to its cleaner counterpart.

However, small price discrepancies with gasoline and the scarcity of gas stations that provide CNG and LGV remain hindrances for most consumers.

State-owned oil and gas company Pertamina recorded 57 gas stations (SPBG) across the nation by the end of 2016.
