DOE-VFO Partners with LGU-Iloilo and Iloilo PNP against Downstream Oil Industry Illegal Activities

ILOILO CITY – The Department of Energy – Visayas Field Office (DOE-VFO), in partnership with the Iloilo Sangguniang Panlalawigan (ISP), Iloilo Provincial Police Office (IPPO), and the Bureau of Fire Protection (BFP) intensifies the government’s crackdown on illegal traders’ activities on petroleum products. These include the illegal retailing and refilling of Liquefied Petroleum Gas (LPG) into unregistered and/or non-compliant containers.

Energy Secretary Alfonso G. Cusi stressed, “The Department is closely working with LGUs and other law enforcement agencies to strengthen the DOE’s campaign against unsafe practices. The safety of our people would always remain paramount, especially given the danger to human life posed by the illegal sale of petroleum products.”

Recently, the IPPO and BFP arrested two individuals at a checkpoint in Guimbal for transporting a total of 1, 055 single-use canisters, illegally refilled with LPG and without the necessary Conveyance Certificate from the BFP. The DOE-VFO advised the Philippine National Police (PNP) to file criminal cases against the suspects for violating Batas Pambansa 33, otherwise known as “An Act Defining And Penalizing Certain Prohibiting Acts Inimical To The Public Interest And National Security Involving Petroleum And/Or Petroleum Products, Prescribing Penalties Therefor And For Other Purposes”.
