Eastern Petroleum Corp. to roll out 100 outlets in Metro Manila, Luzon

Eastern Petroleum Corp. will roll out almost 100 company-owned, company-operated (CoCo) EC Gas outlets in some parts of Luzon this year with a target of opening five branches every month under their expansion program.

The independent oil player said outlets will be in the cities of Manila, Pasig, Parañaque, and Quezon. Outlets will also be launched in Bacoor, Cavite City, and Gen. Trias in Cavite.

Eastern Petroleum chairman and CEO Fernando Martinez said their five-year retail expansion aims to provide households with the safest LPG and let them enjoy savings they could generate from the use of EC Gas.”

Martinez said the EC Gas LPG ensures both safety and savings as its consumers can have 30 to 50 percent in monthly savings from their LPG consumption, based on the experience of the company’s first 45,000 consumers.

The tanks are said to be lighter than the standard steel tanks, explosion proof and translucent, allowing consumers to see its contents.

“It does not compete with the current roster of franchisees, but complements the existing retail network, as these new EC Gas CoCo outlets will cater to the untapped areas around the country,” he said.

The company is also looking to branch out to Visayas and Mindanao for their 20th anniversary in December with Eastern Petroleum retail stations.

“We are also currently working to open company-owned, company-operated outlets in North, Central and South Luzon,” the company official said.
