PNOC EC Donates Relief Goods to Typhoon Victims

26 November 2020, Fort Bonifacio, Taguig City – PNOC Exploration Corporation, the oil, gas, and coal exploration and development arm of the National Government, donated relief goods for the victims of a series of powerful typhoons that rocked the country over the previous couple of weeks.

PNOC EC, under the very able leadership of Lt Gen Rozzano D Briguez (Ret), Company President and CEO, donated four boxes of bath soap, five boxes of instant coffee, five boxes of instant noodles, five boxes of biscuits, seven boxes of canned sardines, seven boxes of bottled water, ten boxes of tonic energy drinks, and twenty boxes of canned meat loaf.

Typhoons Quinta, Rolly, and Ulysses came barrelling through parts of the country over the last couple of weeks of November, leaving billions in damage to agriculture and infrastructure, as well as displacing hundreds of families, especially in the Bicol, Southern Tagalog, and Cagayan Valley Regions.

Rolly and Ulysses were even classified as Super Typhoons by the national weather service, bringing not only strong rains but powerful winds as well. All three typhoons came practically in each other’s wake, over a period of a couple of weeks.

The Company’s donations were collected by the Philippine Air Force’s TOG 5, with a contingent led by Lt Col Gerson Lopez. Lopez informed Lt Gen Briguez that they came all the way from Legazpi City, in Bicol, one of the areas hardest hit by the successive three typhoons. Lopez was very grateful for the donations made by PNOC EC. They immediately made their way back to their Southern Luzon Area of Responsibility as soon as they had collected the goods, with a brief stopover at nearby Col Jesus Villamor Air Base, the PAF Headquarters.

Lt Gen Briguez reiterated PNOC EC’s continuing commitment to support all of the National Government’s relief and recovery efforts in every way.
