PETROLEUM CITY OF INDONESIA, BALIKPAPAN...



Photo by Chaz Tumbelaka


The gateway to East Kalimantan and one of the gateway to "Borneo Rainforest." Balikpapan is located between 1'LS-1, 5'LS and 116.5 'E-117'BT. Consisted of 5 District, bordering the city of Samarinda, Kutai Kartanegara, the Strait of Makassar, and Regency Sand. The total area of approximately 503,306 km2. Although the indigenous Dayak tribes, but the life of a multi-ethnis (heterogeneous) are characteristic in the life of this city.


Balikpapan is a seaport city on the eastern coast of Borneo island, Indonesia in the East Kalimantan province, a resource rich region well known for its timber, mining and petroleum export products. The city is generally hilly with only small areas of flatland. It is a safe, quiet and clean city with a mix of Indonesians and a large number of expatriates. Expatriates work mainly in the oil refinery and associated service companies, and stayed in the oil companies housing compounds. convenience store and major corporate offices.


Balikpapan is one amongst the quite a few of important oil cities in Indonesia, thus, it is only make sense that when you are in Balikpapan, you will see plenty oil refineries; however, all of them are located at one area, which is in Jalan Minyak (it means oil road, literally). More than 12 years ago, when there weren’t any bombing threats or any other threats whatsoever, the refinery area was not even lined with sharp metal wire as Balikpapan was (and still is) a pretty safe city which mainly because the residents obviously understand how important it is to be safe and sound as there are like more than 30 giant refineries in their city. Since old days again, youngsters would take the opportunity to have illegal racing around the area and as years grew, Pertamina, the oil company, for that reason started to place the metal wire for safety purposes.

Dibalik kemajuan tersebut, keasrian hutan harus tetap dijaga. Go green does NOT mean “painting” the building green.

Info terkait GO GREEN jg hehehe!

61 Jenis Flora Kalimantan Terancam
Punah
Minggu, 31 Maret 2013 15:52 WIB
Quote:
BALIKPAPAN, tribunkaltim.co.id –
Kalimantan terkenal dengan kekayaan alam,
khususnya potensi hutan yang menjadi pusat
keanekaragaman tumbuhan tropis di dunia.
Namun bertolak belakang dengan hal
tersebut, kawasan ini juga terkenal memiliki
tingkat kepunahan tumbuhan yang cukup
tinggi.
Dikutip dari laman digital International
Union for the Conservation of Nature and
Natural Resources (IUCN) Redlist
(www.iucnredlist.org), setidaknya 61 jenis
flora khas Kalimantan kini tergolong sebagai
Critically Endangered atau berstatus kritis.
Umumnya flora Kalimantan dalam daftar
tersebut berasal dari suku Dipterocarpacea
(meranti-merantian) dan marga Shorea
(meranti, bangkirai, dan lain-lain). Perlu
diketahui, Kalimantan merupakan pusat
keragaman flora marga Shorea. 138 spesies
Shorea didapati di Kalimantan dan 91 di
antaranya bersifat endemik atau khas.
Status Critically Endangered
mengindikasikan ancaman kepunahan yang
cukup tinggi bagi flora Kalimantan tersebut.
Direktur Unit Pelaksana Kebun Raya
Balikpapan, Aminuddin, S.Hut
mengungkapkan, tanaman khas Kalimantan
sekarang sudah semakin langka karena
banyaknya perubahan peruntukan hutan
untuk kepentingan lain di luar sektor
kehutanan. “Terlebih kayu khas Kalimantan
dari keluarga Dipterocarpacea seperti
Meranti, Kapur, Keruing merupakan jenis
kayu perdagangan yang paling laris”, timpal
Amin.
