Service Contract

DOE Awarded Nine New Service Contracts

The Department of Energy (DOE) awarded anew nine new service contracts for oil and gas development. The DOE has processed nine petroleum exploration areas which were bid out in the last Philippine Energy Contracting Round that closed last May. The DOE awarded the contracts for these exploration blocs last September, barring any hitches on the part of investors. Most of the awardees are local companies with foreign partners. The contract areas covered a total of 71,357.30 square kilometers located within the prospective basins of East Palawan and Mindoro-Cuyo; and in the promising basins of Cagayan, Central Luzon, Visayas and Agusan-Davao. The service contract areas will generate a conservative $180m in revenues for the country, as a single drilling for an offshore well costs about $20m. The DOE also reported that in 2006, it had granted seven oil exploration contracts, three of which were in Palawan; SC-58 at the west Calamian Block, Northwest of Palawan with Nido Petroleum undertaking the contract. Another was the west Balabac/Southwest Palawan under SC-59 by the PNOC-EC and at the Northeast Palawan under SC-60 by Shell Philippines Exploration (SPEX). Four other service contracts have been awarded to the Petroleum sector of the Philippine Energy Contracting Round (PECR) in 2005, and they were undertaken in Palawan and Sulu seas, the DOE added.
