Meanwhile, some members of the House of Representatives Commission VII raised concerns over the government's plan to remove 88 octane.

House Lawmaker Dony Oekon of the Indonesian Democratic Party of Struggle (PDIP) questioned the ability of Pertamina to produce 91 octane fuel. He argued that Pertamina is still unable to produce 91 octane fuel and above in large amounts to meet local needs.

“Don’t make us import. We wanted to follow the LHK regulation but we are not ready. Pertamina is not ready and must import it,” said Dony at the parliamentary complex in Jakarta on September 2.

Sharing similar sentiment was House Lawmaker Moreno Suprapto of the Great Indonesia Movement (Gerindra) faction. “As far as I know, the majority of our refinery production is Premium [88 octane]. It means the product will be shifted or it will be filled with imports.”
