The pipeline was first proposed in 2012 and was included in the 2016-2030 Philippine Energy Plan.[2] Feasibility studies were conducted by Japan International Cooperation Agency (JICA) and Rebel Group International B.V., and the project was shelved in 2017 due to multiple reasons, including right-of-way issues, concerns about insufficient supply for the pipeline, and construction of an LNG Terminal.[3][1] As of August 2023, there were no updated on the project so it is presumed cancelled.
