Violation of subsidized fuel distribution in Aceh

Meanwhile, the day before, the Downstream Oil and Gas Regulatory Agency (BPH Migas) found indications of misuse of subsidized fuel distribution at gas stations in the Aceh Besar area, Aceh, Friday (24/11/2023).

BPH Migas Committee members Abdul Halim and Harya Adityawarman found gas station operators using one QR code for more than one vehicle.

“QR codes that do not match the vehicle registration number may not be served for subsidized fuel and will be blocked immediately,” said Halim.

Meanwhile, BPH Migas Committee Member Harya Adityawarman said that the method of misappropriating subsidized fuel must be taken seriously, because the quantity of subsidized goods is limited, the price is the same and consumers who use it have also been regulated.

He revealed that both BPH Migas, PT Pertamina Patra Niaga, and gas stations are parties that support each other so that subsidized fuel is provided to eligible consumers.
