Natural Gas From Maguindanao Could Make The Philippines The Next Dubai?

The Philippines has been known for undeveloped natural resources which experts say could bring enormous riches to the country. Just recently, President Rodrigo Duterte led the inauguration of the Alegria Oil drill in Cebu which can produce around 400 barrels of oil per day. This is expected to boost the income of the region and the country as well.
Another prospective natural gas deposits also found in Maguindanao's Liguasan Marsh. Maguindanao Rep. Zajid Mangudadatu said if fully developed, the natural gas deposits could make the Philippines the next Dubai.

The area beneath Lake Buluan in Maguindanao's Liguasan Marsh contains 68 billion cubic feet of gas, according to a government survey. It is also believed to contain oil and coal if deeper digging is made, said Maguindanao Rep. Zajid Mangudadatu.    The government distributed cooking stoves so that residents here can make use of the methane gas. Otherwise, it will just be wasted, Mangudadatu said in an interview on DZMM.    "Palagay ko in 25 years kayang-kaya madevelop iyan (I think it can be developed in 25 years). I am very optimistic that the Philippines will be the next Dubai," he said.    The Liguasan Marsh area has seen the bloodiest of clashes between government troops and Muslim rebels, including one encounter in Mamasapano town in 2015 that left 44 police commandos killed and scuttled peace negotiations.    Maguindanao folk are counting on the passage of a self-rule law in the south to enable the full development of the gas reserves.    "This is not just for Maguindanao province, but for the whole country," he said.

The Liguasan Marsh area has been a witness of the most dreadful of clashes between government troops and terrorist rebels, including the Mamasapano clash in 2015 that killed 44 SAF operatives and scuttled peace negotiations.

Residents of Maguindanao are counting on the passage of a self-rule law in the south enabling the full development of these gas reserves which may surely benefit not only Maguindanao but the whole archipelago.
