Philippines opens door to LNG imports with 3 terminals

Three government-approved LNG import terminal projects in the Philippines are expected to begin commercial operations in early 2023, marking the birth of the country’s liquefied natural gas (LNG) industry. The projects are those of Singapore-based Atlantic, Gulf and Pacific (AG&P), First Gen, and Australia-listed Energy World.

The 3 terminals are among 6 such projects that the DOE has approved. Three others are expected to come online within the next 3 years, including a project proposed by Shell.

AG&P’s project, previously scheduled for commissioning in July this year, is slated to begin commercial operation in the first quarter of 2023. It will have a capacity of 5 million tonnes per annum (MPTA).

First Gen, which operates several power plants running on Malampaya gas, has also delayed the launch of its terminal in Batangas to next March from October this year.

Energy World aims to operate its 3 MTPA terminal in Quezon province by Q1 2023.
