In December 2018 a joint venture between CNOOC and Phoenix Petroleum received a Notice To Proceed (NTP) from the Philippine Department of Energy (DOE) to build a 2.2-mtpa LNG terminal near Batangas. In January 2019 it was reported that the joint venture was deciding between two locations for the project, a site formerly used by Chevron (Caltex) in San Pascual, Batangas, and a former project site of AG&P in Anilao, Batangas.
In June 2019 the NTP expired with CNOOC and Phoenix Petroleum claiming they had filed for an extension, but the DOE stated that no such application had been received. In December 2019 the project's backers announced that they are putting the project on hold.
There have been no developments in over four years and the project is presumed to be cancelled.
