First semester of 2013, Pertamina EP Records Profit of Rp 10 Trillion

In the first half (I) 2013, PT Pertamina Exploration and Production (EP) posted a profit of Rp 10 trillion more. Targeted for this year, a subsidiary of state-owned PT Pertamina is able to reap a profit of Rp 18 trillion.
Public Relations Manager of PT Pertamina EP, Amperianto Agus told reporters in Jakarta, Saturday (3/8) night suggests, corporate profits optimistic embrace of it is based on the production performance of oil and gas corporation that produced it.
He said that the present level of oil production per day PT Pertamina EP reached 132 thousand barrels. The expected production rate constant and even increases with the exploration and discovery of new reserves by corporations. “In 2012, corporate profit reached Rp 21.5 trillion,” he said.
This year profit target of Rp 18 trillion does not mean a decrease compared to last year. Agus argues that profits surge last year in addition to the corporate consistency in producing oil and gas, as well as exchange rate differences and the rise in oil prices in the international market.
“Target profit last year (2012) amounted to Rp 17 trillion,” he added.
Most of PT Pertamina EP oil fields located in Sumatra, especially in Jambi, South Sumatra, North Sumatra, and Riau. Pertamina EP also has oil fields in West Java, Central Java and East Java.
“We’re also there is quite a large project in Central Java and East Java. BUT, it is where the gas production is later used to supply gas power plant Tambaklorok Semarang. If that was to be our gas production, is estimated to be saving USD 2 billion of fuel conversion used oil to gas power plant Tambaklorok Semarang, “he explained.
As a subsidiary of PT Pertamina engaged in the upstream oil and gas sector, according to Agus, operational and corporate performance requires the support of many parties, especially the government and society.
Oil theft cases in a massive scale in the pipeline Tempino-Plaju South Sumatra should not happen in other places. In the pipeline along the 265 kilometer (KM), he said, about 75% have been embedded in the ground at the depth of 1.5 meters to 2 meters.
“But, it remains stolen. Trick with building above the oil pipelines, oil pipelines and oil drilled and taken,” he said.

Protein needs can be Filled with Fly Larvae from Machine Eat It

Everyone must know that soy or eggs can be a meat substitute material because it is rich in protein. But apparently protein needs can also be met from fly larvae harvested from the machine. Want to try?

Woman from Austria, Katharine Unger, developing a new engine, named Farm to harvest 432 pounds of larvae every week and enough for two meals. Industrial design graduate of the University of Applied Arts in Vienna is developing the idea because he wanted to tackle livestock meat industry by producing proteins that nobody else in the house comes from the larvae of flies.

Larvae were processed using Farm 432 will smell like potato flour with the taste a bit ‘spicy’ and solid. This machine is designed with light and space Unger enough for fly larvae to grow and produce. Although the current design of the tool is still in use in the home kitchen, but the system could be improved for use in the professional kitchen.

“This tool is easy to use by anyone, you just need to put some black flies and here they will breed and then moved to a larger space to produce larvae,” Unger said, as quoted by the Daily Mail, Thursday (1/8 / 2013).

Then, the larvae will be in a separate area and then it will move to the top of the tube. Once processed, the larvae will be directed into containers such as cups and ready to be eaten. Some larvae which fell back into the machine will be processed again.

Unger chose black flies because it’s kind of easy to breed animals and contains high calcium, amino acids, and 42 percent protein. The amount is double the protein content in chicken breast. One gram of black fly eggs can produce 2.4 kg of protein after processing at Farm 432 for 432 hours.

“But if the black flies are not to your taste, then the larvae of other animals can also be used,” said Unger. In 2050, meat production is expected to increase 50 percent to meet the needs of a rising population.

“Since we’ve been using one third of agricultural land for the production of animal feed, it is necessary to develop new methods of production alternative food sources,” said Unger.

Recent reports indicate that the insect is one viable source of protein for humans such as grasshoppers or ants can be packed into protein substitute that is not more dangerous than beef cattle. To eat the larvae, Unger recommend using tomato risotto.

“I love mixing parboiled rice with rice and larvae, then I add a lot of tomato sauce in it and a little parmesan cheese. Then add a little parsley or basil on it, then you become perfect dish,” says Unger.

Advantages that Nojeng Bang chicken pieces have been sold at 24 outlets in Jakarta has a different flavor than the chicken sold in the market.

“When using ice it closes the pores, protein-protein animal protein but it does not come out of the chicken was freshly cut open pores so there could be contaminated with the scent but if we are truly never alone fell onto the floor,” he added.
