SINGAPORE (ICIS news)--Pertamina, a regular naphtha exporter, plans to export 360,000-410,000 bbl of naphtha this month and in May, a source with the Indonesian state oil and gas firm said on Wednesday.

Pertamina would ship out two, 80,000-bbl cargoes of naphtha from Plaju and 200,000-250,000 barrels of the petrochemical feedstock from Cilacap in April and May, the source added.

Indonesia, southeast Asia’s biggest economy, suffered a 7.7-magnitude earthquake early on Wednesday off the island of Sumatra, but it did not affect the operations of a nearby liquefied natural gas (LNG) plant or the island's major shipping port, industry sources said.

“There is also no impact on the refineries,” said one source.
