Jakarta (ANTARA News) - Energy and Mineral Resources (ESDM) Minister Ignasius Jonan told the people not to worry about fuel oil (BBM) supply saying he guaranteed the availability of fuel oil during the Islamic fasting month Ramadhan.

"I think , there is no problem in the supply of fuel oil during Ramadhan even until Ied ul Fitr," Jonan said here on Sunday.

The government through the ministry will ensure the availability of fuel oil in public places, tourist areas and other places of holiday destinations, he added.

All kinds of fuel oil such as diesel oil and gasoline including Premium and Pertamax, will be sufficiently available, he said.

He said he had asked state-owned oil and gas company Pertamina to follow with the instruction.

He said he would monitor the implementation to make sure that the instruction is carried out properly.
