Recently, almost all the news media outlets, both on television, print, and online, including all social media platforms, continue to report misinformed news especially on the Malampaya-Shell Philippines Exploration B.V. (SPEX) Share sale which is causing a negative impact, not only to the image of the Company, but also to the morale of our Board of Directors, Officers, and Employees.

We, in PNOC Exploration Corporation (PNOC EC), would like to inform the public that the sale of the shares of SPEX in the Malampaya has not reached its final stage.  The statements of our detractors saying that this is a done deal is entirely false and at the same time, it belittles the efforts of our Board of Directors and Officers who have put numerous options on the table, making sure that there is sufficient evaluation to make certain the best choice emerges, not just for the Company, but most importantly, for the energy security of this country and the Filipino people.

It is against this backdrop that we want to assure the public, our partners, and our stakeholders that we have stringent control measures and systems in place to make certain that we come up with a sound business decision particularly to this transaction, and that we will fulfill our mandate to help sustain the growth of the economy and the social well-being of our nation.



The recent allegations announced in the media against several former and current officers of PNOC EC, including our Board of Directors, have brought into question the years of dedicated hard work and service given by these men and women who built PNOC EC into the Company it is today – a respected upstream oil, gas and coal corporation owned by the Philippine Government and the Filipino people.

The Officers and Board of Directors concerned categorically deny all the allegations levelled against them for being bereft of truth in fact and in law.  They will be answering all allegations in the proper forum after they have received a copy of the Complaint.  

PNOC EC Officers, Employees, including our Board of Directors, are public officers who have been entrusted with the mandate to continuously explore and develop sources of energy to help ensure continuous economic growth to the Philippines by providing a stable energy supply to the country.  As public servants, we cannot take away the right of the public to demand accountability from us for actions and decisions we took in the performance of our duties.  However, when the right to question is abused by certain individuals in an obvious attempt to sway the Filipino people’s perception to a conclusion that is not warranted under the circumstances, such actions are simply deplorable and cannot be countenanced.

In the interest of justice and fair play, it is important that the public know that every decision that the PNOC EC Officers and the Board of Directors make go through a very strict process, always keeping in mind relevant laws, rules and regulations, and PNOC EC’s contractual responsibilities and obligations to our partners.

PNOC EC is a model GOCC and a consistent top contributor of remittances to the National Government.  Our Officers, Employees, and Board of Directors are professionals and experts in their respective fields of specialization.  We go about our work strictly adhering to ethical standards of fairness, honesty and accountability in all our undertakings.  All actions of our Officers and Board of Directors will stand scrutiny in any court of law.

We will overcome this adversity with the help and support of everyone in our organization, and our stakeholders and partners in the industry.

PNOC EC reiterates yet again, that we do not solicit or ask for money, funds, or cash donations in exchange for any contracts, or for any of our services or requirements.
