Background

Bataan-Manila LNG Terminal is a proposed LNG terminal in Bataan, Philippines.[1] The plan was originally approved by PNOC-AFC, the now defunct subsidiary which owns the Bataan land where it would be built, and was president to President-elect Duterte in July 2016.[2]

The first phase of the project could be ready for operations as early as 2020. However, the project is facing delays as the Filipino government rejected Gregorio Amanita Inc.'s plans for the facility, and announced they would be soliciting proposals from interested parties instead. At the time of the government's rejection, final leasing rate for the site's property was being negotiated.[2] Its estimated cost is US$2.4 billion. The proposed project will be bankrolled by a consortium that includes Japanese industrial giants Mitsui and Osaka Gas. Once fully operational, the facility will host a 1,600-megawatt power plant that will be powered by LNG.[3]

As of April 2020 the project had not progressed in more than three years, and appears to be shelved.
