Gas and Oil Exploration

SK Liguasan Oil and Gas Corporation already had a service contract from the government since the Duterte administration. However, it can only start during the new Marcos regime for some reasons. SKLOGC is a Mindanao-based Exploration Company. It aspires to extract the natural energy deposits in the provinces of Sultan Kudarat, Maguindanao, and Liguasan Marsh.

No China-PI Joint Exploration

Contrary to some news, the bulk of the natural gas and oil reserves are in Mindanao. Not in the South China Sea. Outgoing DFA Secretary reveals that the joint exploration discussions between the Philippines and China have been “terminated completely.” This is upon the instruction of President Rodrigo Duterte.
