“They hope that with the modern technology they could go as deep as more than 1,000 to 2,000 meters deep,” he told the media in an interview on Monday, March 3.

Vladimir Gerchikov, the company’s country manager said, they have already acquired a service contract from the DOE. The company is already in the process of entering a lease contract for the oil field in Alegria.

Alegria, Cebu rejoices: We struck gas!
By: Futch Anthony Inso, Jose Santino Bunachita - @inquirerdotnet Inquirer Visayas / 08:32 PM March 16, 2018

CEBU CITY – Commercial quantities of natural gas and oil resources have been found in the southern town of Alegria, Cebu that can last for 19 years.

The Department of Energy (DOE) and its partner, a Chinese exploration firm, were set to start production of the on-shore gas and oil mining site in Alegria, a 4th class municipality located more than 110 km from Cebu City.

The news was welcomed by Alegria Mayor Verna Magallon who saw the development as an opportunity for the town to improve economic activities and generate more jobs.

< Edited >

Last March 14, Energy Secretary Alfonso Cusi declared that the Alegria Oil Field, located in Barangay Montpeller, has commercial quantities of natural gas and oil resources that can last until 2037.

Cusi made the pronouncement after a ceremonial signing of the Joint Declaration of Commerciality (JDC) between the DOE and service contractor China International Mining Petroleum Company Limited (CIMP CO. Ltd).

In a press release posted on its website, the DOE said exploration and drilling services on the oil field by CIMP started as early as 2009 and was covered by Petroleum Service Contract (SC) No. 49.

An estimated 27.93 million barrels of oil (MMBO) with a possible production recovery of 3.35 MMBO or a conservative estimate of 12 percent of total oil in places (reserves) were found.

For natural gas, about 9.42 billion cubic feet (bcf) reserves were found, with the recoverable resource estimated at 6.6 bcf or about 70 percent of total natural gas in places/reserves.

MANILA, Philippines – The Alegria Oil Field in southern Cebu can power a 60-megawatt (MW) gas plant, said Energy Secretary Alfonso Cusi.

For oil resources, Cusi said the Alegria Oil Field would have two wells "ready to produce 180 barrels each every day, for a total of 360 barrels per day."

"It will help the economy because it will support the local industry using crude oil. That will be a big help even though it's only 360 barrels because it is still a positive development," the energy chief added.

The contractor, China International Mining Petroleum Company Limited (CIMP), had discovered about 27.93 million barrels of oil (MMBO), with a possible production recovery of 3.35 MMBO or a conservative estimate of 12% of total oil in place or reserves.

CIMP holds Petroleum Service Contract (SC) No. 49, which covers the Alegria Oil Field. (READ: Pangilinan still optimistic over oil hunt in West Philippine Sea)

Department of Energy-7 head Saul Gonzales clarifies it only halted one of its six oil wells, the P8, temporarily for clean-up.

The Alegria Oil Field, which wil be launched on May 19, is expected to produce 6.6 billion cubic feet of methane gas and 3.3 million barrels of liquid crude petroleum in 29 years, which will bring about P1 trillion in revenues. Methane gas and liquid crude petroleum that have commercial quantities were discovered in Alegria after Palawan. | via Mitchelle Palaubsanon
