Davao-based businessman Dennis Uy’s Phoenix Petroleum Philippines has teamed up with Mesa Natural Gas Solutions LLC to introduce generator sets fueled with raw wellhead gas as well as liquefied natural gas and liquefied petroleum gas (LPG).
“Through this valuable project, we will be able to further support the Philippine government’s thrust to broaden our energy mix and move closer towards cleaner energy. Gas, being available in many parts of the world, will allow us to diversify and stabilize our energy sources as we help the country better secure its energy requirements,” said Henry Albert R. Fadullon, COO of Phoenix Petroleum.
Mesa has an estimated power generation fleet of 450 megawatts, of which 25 MW of power had been installed for microgrid clients in 2018 alone.
Phoenix Petroleum said local industrial and commercial businesses are expected to maximize Mesa’s technology, which aims to provide operational flexibility, increased uptime and significant reduction in greenhouse emissions.
