a glimpse of what we do
SK Liguasan Oil and Gas Corporation (SKLOGC) is a Mindanao based Exploration Company that aspires to extract the oil and gas deposits in the provinces of Sultan Kudarat, Maguindanao and Liguasan Marsh. Our main headquarters is in Lambayong, a thriving municipality in Sultan Kudarat where presence of oil and gas deposits is found mostly in its 27 barangays. Two barangays in Lambayong, Bilumin and Caridad are popular among petroleum explorers. It was in Barangay Bilumin (formerly called Barangay Gansing) where three wells namely Gansing 1, Gansing 2 and Gansing 2A were drilled by Anglo-Marine Co. a foreign exploration company from 1962 – 1972.
Mindanao based Exploration Company that aspires to extract the oil and gas deposits in the provinces of Sultan Kudarat, Maguindanao and Liguasan Marsh.
Our main goal in the years to come is to conduct massive exploration and extraction activities starting in Lambayong and onwards to Liguasan Marsh.
Our core values are honed by the requirements of the uncharted environment of oil and gas exploration.
The Value of Our Services
At SKL Oil and Gas, we share a set of core values – honesty, integrity and respect for people – which underpin all the work we do. The SKLBusiness Principles, Code of Conduct and Ethics and Compliance Manual help everyone at SKL act in line with these values and comply with relevant laws and regulations.
We testify to the veracity of this account because we found oil seeps in the Liguasan Marsh areas in Barangay Talitay, municipality of Datu Montawal and in Barangay Dalgan, municipality of Pagalungan province of Maguindanao. We also found methane gas in the municipality of General Salipada K. Pendatun (GSKP). Overall we identified twenty (22) sites in the Maguindanao-Liguasan Area that have potential for oil and gas deposits. Because of the passage of the new Bangsamoro Autonomous Region for Muslim Mindanao (BARMM) law in 2018 replacing the former Autonomous Region for Muslim Mindanao (ARMM), the peace and order in Liguasan has improved dramatically.
Our Vision and Mission
According to the narrative of an international geologist who is extremely familiar with the Gansing wells, Anglo-Marine Co. was able to drill up to 2,000 feet and at this depth large quantity of crude oil shot upwards. But they failed to drill deeper because huge gas pressure was hindering their effort. More than half a century ago, the drilling technology was not as sophisticated as of today hence the early pioneers abandoned the Gansing Prospect. It was also observed by industry experts that Gansing was not really subjected to a thorough Seismic survey.
Tukanakuden, a sitio in Barangay Caridad is where we found the abandoned Tukanakuden gas well. The Tukanakuden Prospect is near the two other gas wells called Sultan sa Barongis 1 (SSB1) and Sultan sa Barongis 2 (SSB2). While Tukanakuden is inside Sultan Kudarat, SSB1 and SSB2 are inside Sultan sa Barongis, a municipality of Maguindanao. It was in this area that intensive exploration operation was undertaken by PETRONAS of Malaysia and by the Philippine National Oil Company – Exploration Corporation (PNOC-EC) in 1992 – 2002. PETRONAS terminated its exploration because they were looking for crude oil and not natural gas, which they found abundant in this area. On the other hand, PNOC-EC capped their well because of security issues in 2002.
