Energy World Corp. Ltd (EWC) has announced that the Secretary of Energy, Alfonso G. Cusi, on behalf of the Department of Energy (DOE) Philippines, has issued a permit for Energy World Gas Operations Philippines Inc. to construct, own and operate an LNG hub.

The LNG import terminal and regasification facility will be located at Pagbilao Grande Island, Quezon Province, the Philippines.

According to the statement, the permit was issued on 21 December last year, and is an update to the original permit documentation. It provides for a further construction period of 24 months from the permit issue date. EWC claims that this will allow the LNG hub’s first tank to be aligned with the commercial operation date of the associated 650 MW power plant and the NGCP switchyard expansion under construction and for the construction of the second tank.

Stewart Elliott said: “This permit demonstrates the continued strong support from the DOE for our LNG hub terminal at Pagbilao and will further enhance our program to bring affordable LNG to the Philippines for power generation, town gas and transportation.”
