Duterte opens Alegria oilfields
Updated May 21, 2018, 7:16 AM
By Minerva BC Newman and Argyll Cyrus Geducos


Alegria, Cebu – President Duterte led over the weekend the ceremonial valve opening of the Alegria Oilfield Polyard-3 Well Site, here, noting that “Alegria is rich” and that the oil and gas fields of this southwestern town of Cebu would generate numerous job opportunities and income for Filipinos.

Duterte, upon his arrival at the event on Saturday, was briefed by Department of Energy (DOE) Secretary Alfonso Cusi and China International Mining Petroleum (CIMP) Assistant Country Manager Edgar Benedict Cutiingco.

“Dato ang Alegria (Alegria is rich),” the President said as he addressed the crowd gathered in Barangay Montpeller, here.

The Alegria oilfield serves as a major breakthrough in the Philippine oil and gas industry. It covers a total area of 197,000 hectares with about 42,749 hectares devoted to the production area.

He said the production of oil and gas here would help Alegria town become progressive.

Migration seen

Duterte then addressed local officials, telling them to prepare for a massive migration into their town. “Prepare for an expansive human and economic development. Madaghan nang mga tawo diri. (People will flock here.) Prepare for that and do not forget your fellowmen here,” he said.

“It is a magnet that draws people together. But since we are Filipinos, you should accommodate them and partake of the bounties of what God has given us in the bowels of the earth,” Duterte said.

He urged Alegria town officials to improve the town’s urban planning and land use and to spend the income for local infrastructure, improve living conditions of the people here and promote gainful employment for the people of Alegria.

“I can see your own airstrip here, which you can be proud of as your means of transportation from Alegria to other parts of the province and back,” Duterte said.

The Alegria oilfield serves as a breakthrough in the Philippine oil and gas industry.

The oilfield is currently operated by China International Mining Petroleum Company Ltd. with its partners Skywealth Group Holdings Ltd. And Phil-Mal Energy International Inc. with a US $30.80-million (about P1.61 billion) investment.

LGU expectations

Alegria mayor Verna Magallon, on the other hand welcomed these positive developments in her town. She told Manila Bulletin that with the income derived from the shared benefits of 18 percent to the town and 14 percent to the host barangay, we expect to improve our municipality classification from a 4th class town to a 3rd class municipality.

Magallon added she will prioritize the provision of potable water and electricity to all the barangays because those are the urgent needs today.

“Eventually, we will improve our health services (free medicines), more social benefits for the senior citizens and persons with disabilities as well as infrastructure support to organic agriculture in the barangays. We want to develop Alegria as the organic vegetable garden in Cebu and in the region,” Magallon said.

Share your blessings

“So prepare for that because I said gihatag sa Gino-o sa inyo eh (God gave you that blessing). And do not forget your fellowmen. Muanhi sila ngari (If they come here), then you’ll support them. Nanginabuhi lang pud na (They’re just making a living),” he added.

“So I hope that you don’t lose sight of the fact that we are all Filipinos. And although gibutang na si Gino-o diri para sa tanang Pilipino (although God placed that here, that’s also for all Filipinos),” he continued.

Not like Malampaya

The President, however, said that he will not allow the oilfield to be like Malampaya gas field which failed to pay its tax liabilities to the government.

“Ang nakadaot, kay sa Malampaya, gibinuangan nila ang tao, wala nila gihatag ang share. Ayaw ana. Kung unsa gani – seventy… P72 billion – nga wa mahatag sa probinsya (What really soured things in Malampaya was they deceived the people. They refused to give the people their share. Don’t do that. P72 billion. They didn’t give it to the province),” he said.

“Ako, dili ko ana. Kung unsay inyo, inyo. Walay kuan, walay Bisaya o walay Ilocano, walay Maranao, walay… Basta fair tanan. Kung unsay inyo, inyo na. Ayaw mo’g panguha og lain kung di ninyo (I won’t allow that. Whatever is yours is yours regardless of whether you’re Bisaya or Ilocano or Maranao. It will be fair for all. Whatever belongs to you is yours. Don’t take what is not yours),” he added.

Builders promise world-class facilities at New Clark City for 2019 SEA Games. Look
From: Reuben Terrado May 11, 2018, 03:50 pm


Image
The New Clark City will feature an enclosed stadium that will have a seating capacity of 20,000 and an aquatic center similar to that at the London Aquatics Center, which hosted swimming competition at the 2010 London Olympics. Photos by Jham Mariano


THE Philippines will be hosting the Southeast Asian Games in 2019. But unlike in the past three stagings of the regional event here, the athletics and aquatics competitions will no longer be held at the age-old Rizal Memorial Sports Complex in Manila. Instead, the centerpiece events will be staged in Capas, Tarlac where a new city is set to rise.

New Clark City is one of the newest communities being developed by the Bases Conversion and Development Authority (BCDA), the government-owned and controlled corporation (GOCC) responsible for developing Bonifacio Global City and the Subic Bay Freeport.

Two stadiums are currently under construction at New Clark City. AlloyMTD, the firm tasked to build the sports stadiums, said the athletics and aquatics centers will be finished in time for the 2019 SEA Games to be held later that year.

Aside from the stadiums, school campuses are also being planned to be constructed inside the New Clark City while several government agencies have committed to put satellite offices at its National Government Administrative Center.

So just what can Filipino sports fans expect to see in the venue?

SPIN.ph interviewed two key officials, AlloyMTD president Patrick Nicholas David and BCDA vice-president for business development Arrey Perez, during the concrete-pouring ceremony to discuss the features of the stadium as well as its future.

Athletics center

Unlike the open-air Rizal Memorial Stadium which can sit around 12,000 people, the New Clark City athletics center will be an enclosed stadium that will have a seating capacity of 20,000.


Image


The new facility will feature the very first nine-lane Class 1 track in the Philippines certified by the International Amateur Athletics Federation (IAAF), the world governing body for track and field.

The facility will also have natural grass for field events as well as football where David assured will be up to Fifa standards.

For the exterior, David said the triangular-shaped design above the stadium was inspired by nearby Mt. Pinatubo.

Aquatics center

David said the pool at the aquatic center will be similar to that at the London Aquatics Center, which hosted swimming competition at the 2010 London Olympics.

“We are using the same swimming pool used in the London Olympics,” said David, adding the aquatics center will also feature the first-ever indoor diving training center.

“It will be complete with harness, trampoline, and dive boards wherein our athletes can practice indoor,” said David.

The New Clark City aquatic center will also be equipped with a state-of-the-art timing device certified by swimming’s world governing body Fina.


Just like the athletics center, the aquatics center will have a Filipino touch. The design of the exterior will a native lantern made of capiz shell.


“Everything is modern Filipino to celebrate the Filipino,” said David. “It’s a modern Filipino city that can represent the Philippines worldwide.”

An athletes village is also being constructed which will have 500 rooms that can house up to 1,000 athletics and aquatics participants in the SEA Games.

Completion date

AlloyMTD assured the two facilities will be finished by October 15, 2019 just in time for the SEA Games.

“Our target completion date is October 14 but we intend to finish everything before that,” said David.

To finish it on time, David said they currently have a thousand workers for the construction of a part of Phase 1-A of the New Clark City.

“This will grow continuously to 5,000 to 7,000. This does not include people working offsite doing prefab work. There are a lot of workers shifting everyday,” said David.


Image


The future of the stadiums

Some new stadiums that have hosted major sports events like the Olympics and Asian Games have turned into white elephants afterwards. But that will not be the case for the New Clark City sports complex, officials assured.

Perez said part of New Clark City’s future plans is the construction of a multi-purpose arena that can host indoor events such as basketball, as well as a lot reserved for outdoor sports.

”We will not be able to complete it in time for the SEA Games but definitely it will be there,” said Perez. “We are also planning to put facilities for shooting in a six-hectare area. There will be other facilities that will complement the university district."

Perez said they are negotiating with the Philippine Sports Commission (PSC) on the possibility of moving the billeting and training of national athletes to New Clark City.

“We are in talks with the Philippine Sports Commission to eventually move some of its facility to the New Clark City. What we are seeing now is Phase One of the national training center for our athletes,” said Perez.

Perez said schools such as University of the Philippines, Adamson, Polytechnic University of the Philippines, Technological University of the Philippines, and Philippine Science High School plan to put up campuses at the New Clark City.

The students will eventually be using the new sports complex, said Perez.

“There will be other facilities that will complement the university district here in the New Clark City. They will eventually use the sports village and all the sports facilities that will be built here,” said Perez.

Boracay is ‘wild, wild West’
By: Nestor P. Burgos Jr. - @inquirerdotnet Philippine Daily Inquirer / 07:02 AM May 20, 2018

ISLAND REHABILITATION A resident of Boracay helps clean the beach under the labor department’s program to assist workers displaced by the six-month closure of the resort island. —LYN RILLON


ISLAND REHABILITATION A resident of Boracay helps clean the beach under the labor department’s program to assist workers displaced by the six-month closure of the resort island. —LYN RILLON

BORACAY ISLAND, Aklan — Describing the rampant violation of rules and laws on Boracay Island as “wild, wild West,” an official of an interagency task force revealed that only 25 of 1,080 inspected establishments (2.3 percent) on the island had permits and complied with requirements.

“I was very surprised,” Interior Assistant Secretary Epimaco Densing III told reporters here at the sidelines of the first meeting of the interagency task force on the rehabilitation of Boracay since the island’s closure to tourism on April 26.

In a report to the task force, Densing said that among the establishments and structures that were inspected, 427 were operating with no business permits, 207 lacked environmental compliance certificates, 199 had no building permits, 427 did not have fire safety certificates, 412 failed to enroll workers in Pag-Ibig, Social Security System and PhilHealth while 112 had no sewage treatment plants.

Notices

He said the establishments, including those owned by big business companies, were issued notices to comply.

While most of the establishments were currently not operating due to the closure of the island to tourists, they would not be allowed to reopen if they could not meet the requirements, Densing said.

He said violators were able to operate or build their establishments even if these should not have been allowed.

The meeting, presided over by Environment Secretary Roy Cimatu, was also attended by Labor Secretary Silvestre Bello III, Public Works Secretary Mark Villar, Budget Secretary Benjamin Diokno and other officials.

Densing said the proposed budget for the six-month rehabilitation of the island was P1.36 billion.

Rehab budget

These would include financial and other forms of assistance to displaced residents and workers due to the temporary closure of most establishments and the absence of tourists and the rehabilitation of the island.

Diokno told the Inquirer that he would sign the release of P490 million on Friday intended for road repairs and expansion.

He was not sure, though, if the funds were part of the proposed P1.36-billion rehab budget.

The Department of Environment and Natural Resources reported to the task force that all illegal structures along the road from the Cagban port to the rotunda along the main road of Boracay had been demolished by their owners or the Department of Public Works and Highways.

At least 206 of 308 establishments violating the 30-meter beach easement had been given show cause orders, which would be followed by demolition.

Of 842 settlers on forest lands, 341 had been given eviction notices.
