Energy chief bares full swing Malampaya exploration

The Department of Energy on Wednesday confirmed that the new Malampaya consortium, now led by tycoon Enrique K. Razon, Jr., is on track to drill two new wells — a commitment that would generate additional natural gas supply for the country in the coming years. No less than Energy Secretary Raphael Perpetuo Lotilla confirmed that consortium members recently reported to President Ferdinand R. Marcos, Jr. to discuss their ongoing initiatives. “The good news shared with the President by the Malampaya consortium is that we are on track to having the first drilling for the nearby fields by the end of 2024,” Lotilla said during a forum. “We are looking forward to new or additional supply from the same service contract by 2026,” he added. The development, according to Lotilla, will encourage “more investments in exploration in the oil and gas sector.” “Ever since the President assumed office, he has committed the energy sector towards stabilizing the investment environment. We were able to extend or renew the service contract,” Lotilla said. After a meticulous evaluation, Marcos signed the Renewal Agreement for the Malampaya Service Contract No. 38 or SC 38 last May, which effectively extended the project’s production contract for a final 15 years or until February 2039. The SC 38 extension, which was supposed to expire on 22 February 2024, will allow for the continued production of the Malampaya gas field. It will ensure that the remaining gas reserves are further explored and utilized. Malampaya’s renewal contract requires the consortium members to conduct a minimum work program that they need to deliver. The program consists of geological and geophysical studies and the drilling of at least two deep water wells during Sub-Phase 1 from 2024 to 2029. “The conduct of exploratory drilling further away from the Malampaya production area within the Service Contract is a requirement for the SC 38 consortium to retain the exploration areas,” Lotilla explained. Based on the latest DoE estimates, the gas field near Malampaya is estimated to have about 210 billion cubic feet of gas. The Malampaya consortium already committed to spending about $600 million, or about P33.7 billion to maximize the production of the Malampaya gas field project. The Malampaya project uses indigenous natural gas to reduce the country's oil imports. It also generates significant revenues for the local government that already amounted to $13.14 billion or over P1 trillion. Malampaya has been powering up to 20 percent of Luzon’s total electricity requirements. It supplies natural gas to power four power generation plants in Batangas with a combined capacity of 2,011 megawatts.   The post Energy chief bares full swing Malampaya exploration appeared first on Daily Tribune......»»
