THE Department of Energy (DOE) and the Philippine National Oil Co. Exploration Corporation (PNOC-EC) recently visited the Malampaya Deep Water Gas-to-Power Project (Malampaya) Shallow Water Platform to assess its condition and ensure continued operations and sustainability.
SAN Miguel Global Power on Monday disputed an apparent move by the Malampaya consortium to distance itself from the issue of banked gas from the Malampaya fields, particularly the issue of the supply of 70 petajoules (PJ) in banked gas from Malampaya that South Premier Power Corp. acquired from Philippine National Oil Co. (PNOC) in June 2022.
POWER outages are back with a vengeance. Those of us in Luzon remember the rotating brownouts from May 31 to June 1. More recently, there was a blackout that affected the whole of Eastern Visayas, Bohol, Cebu and Negros on August 20.
THE Manila Electric Co. (Meralco) said it has drawn up its own proposed measures to help mitigate possible price hike and power outage during the 20-day shutdown of the Malampaya gas facility.
