Previously, Indonesia had oil reserves up to 27 billion barrels. However, only 3.7 billion barrels are left, due to years of massive production and consumption since 2003.
The data from Upstream Oil and Gas Regulatory Special Task Force (SKKMigas) Public Relations Department Head Elan Biantoro, quoted by Kompas.comon September 5, 2015, also indicated that the oil reserves will last for only around 10 more years.
"Our country previously had up to 27 billion barrels; however, around 22.9 billion barrels have already been extracted. Only 3.7 billion barrels remain,” he said.
Rate of consumption exceeds availability. The oil produced is only half the amount of fuel consumed, SKKMigaspublic relations representative Dian Sulistiawan was quoted saying by Antara on August 30, 2017.
"The national level of fuel consumption has reached 1.6 million barrels per day, meanwhile the production capacity is only 834,000 barrels per day," he said.
According to him, if people's fuel consumption does not decrease, more fuel has to be imported, and it will burden the state’s budget. On the other hand, it is hard to improve the production while energy crisis looms over upstream oil and gas industry.
The people, as fuel consumers, need solutions to this problem. Various alternatives can be chosen, such as renting vehicles that can be used by a group of people, not only individuals.
Renting vehicles also means decreasing the number of vehicles on the road and directly reducingfuel consumption. The servicealso gives sense of comfort by lessening burdens, for instance time and energy spent during traffic jam.
Moreover, renting vehicles for group will further increase efficiency. Various types of vehicles are available, like the ones we have inour TRAC branches all over Indonesia.
There are more than 40,000 ready-to-use vehicles, including sedans, SUVs, MPVs, and buses. Not only improving efficiency, the vehicles provided by our company, an ASTRA company under PT Serasi Autoraya (SERA), are certainly reliable, so are our professional drivers.Thus, there is no need to compromise comfort and security with efficiency amid the oil crisis hitting Indonesia.
