Singapore -- Indonesia's state-owned Pertamina has secured
200,000 barrels of 88 RON gasoline for June, following the
unplanned partial shutdown of its Cilacap refinery in Central

The cargo of 88 RON gasoline is covered under part of
Pertamina's term commitment and is for the purpose of building
buffer stocks. To date, Pertamina has no immediate plans to buy
any volumes from the spot market.
Based on earlier estimates of the company's import plans, this
brings Pertamina's total imports of 88 RON and 92 RON gasoline
to 4.6 million barrels. For July, Pertamina plans to import 4.4
million barrels gasoline.
Pertamina has on June 3, shut the 230,000 b/d No. 2 crude
distillation unit at the 348,000 b/d Cilacap refinery after a
tube broke, causing a fire.
Repairs to the CDU are expected to take six days and the
refinery is expected to be fully operational by this Wednesday.
