Developed in the late 1990s, the pipeline was the first project in the Philippines to actively undertake a community consent process as part of its Environmental Impact Study (EIS). Shell acquiesced to this process after being criticized for its environmental and human rights abuses in other projects in the 1990s. In March 2020 Chevron sold its 45% share in the pipeline and the Malampaya gas project to Udenna Corporation.
