JAKARTA, KOMPAS — State owned oil giant Pertamina said a fire that broke out at one of its oil storage tanks at a refinery in Cilacap, Central Java, on Saturday night (11/13/2021), did not disrupt the fuel supply. The company is still investigating the cause of the fire. A thorough investigation is needed not only to determine the cause of the fire but also to ensure that a similar fire will not occur again in the future.

At a press conference in Jakarta on Sunday (14/11), Pertamina president director Nicke Widyawati told the public not to panic as the fire would not disturb the fuel supply. The fire, which began in tank 361T102 at the facility at about 7:20 p.m., was extinguished by 11:05 p.m. However, 80 minutes later a second fire broke out. That fire was fully extinguished by 07:45 a.m. on Sunday.
