Balikpapan, Petroleum city of Indonesia Part II



CENTER]Balikpapan is a city (population 546,380 as of 2005) on the island of Borneo, in Indonesia. It is the second largest city in the province of East Kalimantan. It is located on an inlet of Makassar Strait, about 115 km from Samarinda, the capital city of East Kalimantan. Mostly surrounded by sea, Balikpapan is an important center of the petroleum, mining, and timber industries.

The city is sometimes called the "Main Gate" of Kalimantan. It has one international airport, called Sepinggan, several harbors such as Semayang and Somber, and one port for the petroleum industry plus the future Kariangau international port.

Beside of that, Balikpapan is well known as the richest, cleanest, and one of the safest city in Indonesia.

Surrounded by a bay and strait, called Balikpapan Bay and Makassar strait, the city also has potential for business, such as trades and tourism. Many diverse people live in this peaceful city; Dayak, Bugis, Javanese, and some foreigners.

Oil Refinery



The Balikpapan Oil Refinery is located on the shore of Balikpapan Bay and covers an area of 2.5 km². Established in 1922, it is the oldest refinery in the area. It was destroyed in World War II by the Allies of World War II and re-built in 1950. The refinery has two subunits, Balikpapan I and Balikpapan II.

Balikpapan I consists of two raw oil refinery units that produce naphtha, kerosene, gasoline, diesel fuel, and residue and one high-vacuum unit that produces 100 tonnes (approx 98 tons) of paraffin oil distillate (POD), used as raw material for wax factories. The wax itself has various grades and is sold domestically and internationally.

Opened on November 1, 1983, Balikpapan II has a hydro-skimming and hydro-cracking refinery and produces petrol, LPG, naphtha, kerosene, and diesel fuel.

Balikpapan Economy By Wikipedia
Some multinational corporations have commercial activities in this city such as Pertamina (Indonesia), Total S.A. (France), Chevron (US), Schlumberger, and Halliburton (US). Government Public Services also attract many people to work in this area, with presence of Bank Indonesia, Finance Department, Port of Semayang, and several others.

The city has several shopping centers built by private companies, including Plaza Balikpapan (or 'Balikpapan Center'), Plaza Rapak, Mal Fantasy in Balikpapan Baru estate and the newly open Makro, the hypermarket. Index Furnishing boasts a large selection of furniture while ACE hardware is a popular source for home supplies. There are many traditional markets in Balikpapan such as Klandasan Market, Kebun Sayur Market, Baru Market, and Buton Market. Upcoming spots still under construction are Pasar Baru Square and Balikpapan Super Block.

The city has regular problems with electricity and water supply, which may be due to the city's rapid economic growth and lack of long-term planning. Balikpapan residents experience blackouts (mati lampu) of several hours three to four times a week. There are also water shortages (mati air), which sometimes last for more than a week.

Industrial activities play an important role in KIZ/KIK, which is planned to cover a large area. The dominant activities are large-scale and medium-scale industries. The production in this area includes food and beverage, rubber, processed wood, chemicals, metal, and charcoal. Almost all raw materials used in KIZ come from local sources, particularly agriculture.

The available warehouse functions as temporary storage for both finished products and raw materials prior to distribution. A new warehouse area will later be located near the seaport.


Transportation
Balikpapan's airport is the Sepinggan International Airport. This is the second busiest Indonesian airport after Soekarno-Hatta International Airport [citation needed] and permits large aircraft.

Airlines currently using the airport are Lion Air, Merpati Airlines, Batavia Air, Kartika Airlines, Sriwijaya Air (domestic routes), and Garuda Indonesia, Air Asia, and Silk Air (International routes).

The airport is one of the five principle sites in Indonesia where Muslims begin the pilgrimage to Mecca, the "Hajj". Between 1996 and 1997, the airport served over 4,500 East Kalimantan pilgrims, and from 1997 to 1998, it served pilgrims from East Kalimantan, South Kalimantan, Central Sulawesi, and North Sulawesi.

Other than the airport, Balikpapan also has a seaport called "Semayang" which has many destinations to Surabaya, Makasssar, Jakarta, Pare-Pare, and Manado. in 1990s, transportation using ships was very popular. But after the booming of so many new airlines with very cheap price, people now prefer travelling using airplanes to the ships.

The ferry is also another alternative for travelling to other places within coastal areas in East Kalimantan, such as Penajam.

This is panorama of Macassar strait visible from Balikpapan waterfront
At night, those oil rigs offshore shine a light
And belive me, this is just part of it
