Pilipinas Shell has opened a new import facility in Subic to strengthen its supply chain to the northern parts of the nation and in support of government’s efforts to jumpstart the economy amidst the COVID-19 pandemic.
Pilipinas Shell president and CEO Cesar Romero said: “We share government’s optimism and remain committed as the country’s partner in nation-building by leveraging our global expertise to strengthen our presence in the Philippines and bolstering supply ahead of Asia’s anticipated bounce-back in fuel demand.”
He added that Pilipinas Shell’s expanded fuel supply network also underpins the company’s thrust to grow its number of retail stations and remains committed in the Philippines as a partner in nation-building.
The Subic facility is Pilipinas Shell’s third Medium Range (MR) vessel-capable import terminal and can receive 54 million litres of finished products in one shipment. This allows the company to maximise its efficiency and minimise its transshipment costs.
The Subic facility completes “a robust supply triangle” that Shell has created across the nation with its Tabangao refinery-turned-import terminal in Batangas and its North Mindanao Import Facility (NMIF) in Cagayan de Oro City in Mindanao.
