Gov Garcia: Liquefied natural gas plant to create more jobs
Bataan Governor Albert Garcia is optimistic that the proposed $2.4 billion liquefied natural gas (LNG) plant and storage terminal in the municipality of Limay will attract more industrial firms to invest in the province.
The Bataan politiko said this will also create more jobs opportunities for residents.
Garcia added the Philippine National Oil Company (PNOC)-backed project is a clean technology emission power plant.
LNG is supposedly 50% cleaner than fossil-fuel power plants.
The proposed 1,600 megawatt plant would be constructed in a 500-hectare facility in the coastal village of Lamao.
The facility will include an LNG import and storage terminal, power generation facility, co-located industrial operations, and a countrywide natural gas distribution network.
