Chevron undertakes fuel marking with BOC and SICPA SA-SGS Philippines

Chevron Philippines Inc. (CPI), marketer of the Caltex brand of top-quality fuels, lubricants and petroleum products, recently undertook live fuel marking at its import terminal in San Pascual, Batangas.

The fuel marking, held last November 11, 2019 and witnessed by officials from the Bureau of Customs (BOC) and representatives from the company and fuel marker consortium, SICPA SA –SGS Philippines, made CPI the first among the Big 3 oil companies to comply with the government’s fuel marking requirement. This aims to curb oil smuggling in the country by placing a molecular marker on imported, manufactured and refined fuel products namely, gasoline, diesel, and kerosene.

“CPI supports the government’s initiative to curb fuel smuggling through this fuel marking program. We hope that  this program will level the playing field among the industry participants and ensure that all oil companies pay the correct taxes and help build the nation,” CPI Country Chairman Louie Zhang said.

Following the recent completion of the implementing rules and regulations for the FMP, gasoline, diesel and kerosene will be tested for compliance with the prescribed dilution level, whether at the refinery, terminal or retail sites.

A strong believer of the famous adage “The youth is the hope of the nation,” SCG continues to invest in Filipino students through its Sharing the Dream program. Knowing that the children of today will grow up to become the leaders of tomorrow, SCG through its scholarship program hopes to help the youth obtain a well-rounded education that will shape them into the competent and responsible professionals and citizens the country needs.

Since its launch in the Philippines in 2008, the Sharing the Dream program has been granting educational assistance to more than 2,000 high school students from Batangas, Bulacan, Taguig and Tondo as a way of giving back to the communities where SCG operates. In 2018, SCG Sharing the Dream extended its scholarship grants to college students, both current and incoming alike, to encourage more students to pursue a college degree. In partnership with the Philippine Business for Social Progress (PBSP), SCG screened applications and carefully selected 10 awardees who demonstrated academic distinction and the makings of an excellent leader.
