Pilipinas Shell Petroleum Corporation has unveiled a new import facility in Subic, which aims to strengthen its supply chain in Northern and Central Luzon.
The facility, which can hold up to 54 million litres of fuel is strategically located to enhance access to the Ilocos, Cagayan Valley, Central Luzon, and Cordillera Administrative Regions.
With the launch of the Subic import terminal, Shell signifies its support to the government’s efforts to restart the economy amid the COVID-19 pandemic. It also puts the country’s second-largest oil firm in a better position to respond to disruptions brought about by the typhoon season.
The Subic facility is Shell’s third medium range vessel-capable import terminal. The other two are the Tabangao refinery-turned-import terminal in Batangas City, which would now serve Southern Luzon and Northern Visayas, and the North Mindanao Import Facility (NMIF) in Cagayan de Oro City, which serves Mindanao and the rest of the Visayas.
