Brownout threat ebbs as plants get Malampaya gas

Posted by akosistella on March 15, 2010

THE RESUMPTION of natural gas feeds to three Luzon power plants has significantly reduced the likelihood of fresh brownouts this week.

National Grid Corp. of the Philippines (NGCP) said the Malampaya deepwater gas-to-power facility resumed supplying three Batangas power plants on Saturday following the completion of preventive maintenance work.

The Malampaya shutdown starting Feb. 12 led to a shutdown of the 1,200-megawatt (MW) Ilijan. The 500-MW San Lorenzo and the 1,000-MW Sta. Rita plants, meanwhile, were forced to run on more expensive liquid condensate.
