As local natural gas continues to sustainably power the Philippines, Department of Energy (DOE) Secretary Alfonso Cusi recently visited the Malampaya Deep Water Gas-to-Power platform off the shores of Palawan. Operated by an all-Filipino crew, the world-class Malampaya platform delivers high pressure, cleaner-burning natural gas from the deep waters of the West Philippine Sea through a 504-kilometer subsea pipeline to supply power plants in batangas that generate 3200MW of electricity or the equivalent of powering 4 out of 10 lightbulbs in Luzon.
