Dark smoke rises from state's energy firm Pertamina during fires at its refinery in Cilacap

JAKARTA (Reuters) - Indonesia's state oil firm Pertamina said on Sunday it had extinguished a fire at its refinery in Cilacap, Central Java, and supplies were not impacted.

The fire broke out on Friday near the bundwall area and benzene containers. Television footage showed a large blaze and smoke rising from the refinery, which Pertamina said has 200 oil tanks and has a processing capacity of 348,000 barrels a day.

Pertamina official Djoko Priyono said in a statement that the fire had been extinguished on Sunday morning and a cooling process was underway.

"Everything is in a good condition and extinguished," he said, adding that supplies of LPG and fuel were not impacted.

A Pertamina spokesperson said that an internal investigation into the cause of the fire was being carried out.

This was the second recent fire at a Pertamina refinery after one in March at its facility in West Java.
