Jun 28, 2017
Cebu-Mactan, Philippines - Pilipinas Shell Petroleum Corporation (PSPC) today announced the expansion of the Shell Aviation refuelling network to Mactan-Cebu International Airport (CEB) in the Philippines, marking 55 years of aviation fuel operations this year. With this latest airport entry, PSPC now supplies jet fuel at three of the key international airports in the country, including Manila (MNL), Clark (CRK) and Cebu (CEB).
CEB is currently the second busiest terminal in the country, making PSPC well placed to meet its increasing fuelling needs as passenger numbers are expected to increase from 4.5 million to more than 12 million per annum by 2018. The said initiative is part of Shell’s overall strategy to continuously be a good investment opportunity, whilst being a true partner of the Philippines in nation-building and progress.
“Shell is proud to achieve a new milestone in the Philippines, and we look forward to supporting Mactan-Cebu International Airport to become a world-class and major international airport in the Philippines, as well as the development of Cebu in becoming a center of trade and tourism,” said PSPC President & CEO, Cesar Romero.
Key benefits CEB customers will enjoy include fuel supply security backed by Shell’s integrated global supply chain with 17 refineries and 10 trading hubs globally; product quality assurance via Shell’s Fuel Quality Assurance System; professional account management that provides a single focal point for fuel requirements across Shell’s global network; and access to local expertise by leveraging Shell's 55 years of experience in the Philippines aviation industry.
“Shell Aviation is committed to continuously support the progress of the Philippines’ aviation industry and creating outstanding value for its customers by delivering world-class aviation fuels and services, safely and on time,” said Richard Pereira, General Manager Shell Aviation, Asia Pacific and Middle East. “Shell Aviation aims to continue its strategic expansion in key locations with potential future growth like Cebu.”
Meanwhile, Albert Tiu, Vice President of PLC at CEB said: “This new partnership marks a timely step in the right direction. As local and international airlines begin to launch new services to and from Cebu and the capacity at the airport increases, we are pleased to partner with Shell Aviation to help meet current customer demands while also increasing supply security at the airport.”

The company has since been recognized by the Safety Organization of the Philippines’ for “Perfect Safety Record” in 2014, and has also received the “Award of Merit” in 2015.
