Construction works have been completed on two liquefied natural gas (LNG) terminals in the Batangas Bay, Philippines. The first facility, owned by AG&P International Private Limited and Linseed Field Power Corporation, has started supplying fuel to the Ilijan combined cycle plant power plant.
With the LNG delivery, the power plant has resumed the supply of electricity to the grid. The 1,200 MW facility ceased operations in June 2022 due to shortage of fuel supply from the Malampaya gas field.
Meanwhile, the second terminal, owned by FGEN LNG Corporation, is set to receive its first LNG cargo later in 2023.
The Department of Energy (DOE) has approved the construction of seven LNG terminals in the Philippines. These terminals will import LNG from overseas to help meet the country’s growing demand for natural gas.
