Changing the Landscape of Philippine Fuel Industry

For over sixteen years, SEAOIL has consistently been able to introduce more advanced and environment-friendly fuel specifications ahead of our competition. This includes the shift to unleaded gasoline (a movement strongly opposed back then but has now become an industry standard), introduction of low sulfur diesel to minimize harmful exhaust emissions especially from public utility vehicles, and the shift to alternative fuels like bioethanol gasoline and biodiesel.

Acknowledging the fact that petroleum or fossil fuel is a finite source of energy that is fast-depleting, SEAOIL espoused the use of biofuels and actively lobbied for it. Biofuels are renewable sources of energy that can be produced locally. They are sustainable and can significantly reduce our country’s dependence on oil producing countries for our supply. With enough support from investors and the government, the Philippines, being an agricultural country, can very well manufacture biofuels for local use.

Philippine fuel companies are currently mandated by the Biofuels Act of 2006 (R.A. 9367) to sell ethanol-blended gasoline and biodiesel in their retail outlets. SEAOIL started selling and promoting E10 (gasoline with 10% ethanol content) in 2005, way before the mandate. It also preceded the whole industry in blending diesel with coco-methyl ester (CME). The rest of the industry followed after the mandate.

Our product innovations enable us to achieve two goals: improve our products’ performance and help preserve the environment for the future generations. In the words of SEAOIL president and CEO Francis Glenn Yu, we did not inherit the earth from our parents, but instead it was borrowed from our children, so we should be good stewards of it.

Innovative, customer-focused and globally competitive, SEAOIL Philippines Incorporated is harnessing all its energies to become the leading force in the country’s oil industry.
