From November 28 to 30, 2018, DAHANA successfully destroyed explosives owned by EPI, Baker, Hanwha, Mandala Energy, DOJO, and Medco Natuna in Lumajang.

DAHANA Disposal Team arrived in Lumajang on November 25, 2018 to conduct preparations that included preparing for the extermination site and coordinating with various relevant parties for the success of the activities.

Destruction of explosives or disposal is one of the business units of PT DAHANA (Persero). Disposal activities are carried out on explosives which have expired or are not used due to failure in the field. This activity is also intended to meet the safety and security standards.

“The purpose of this disposal is to help consumers, both operators and K3S in removing explosives that have been damaged or cannot be used again,” Rikson Manulang explained.

The Customer Relations Supervisor of the Oil & Gas Division of PT DAHANA (Persero) explained that the destruction of explosives also aims to reduce consumer risk in maintaining junk explosives and the addition of space in warehouses that can be used for storing new explosives.

“The destroyed explosives were the ones used in the exploration and exploitation of oil and gas and non-electronic explosives used in general mining and construction quarries,” he added.

Attending the event were explosive owners (Baker, Medco Natuna, Mandala Energy), as well as related parties such as Lumajang Police, East Java Regional Police, Lumajang Dandim, Tempe Danramil, Kunir Danramil, Yosowilangun Danramil, Tempe Police, Kunir and Babinsa. (yq)
