The Malampaya Gas Project supplies 35 to 40 percent of Luzon’s power needs. Regulators constantly monitor the plant’s performance to ensure reliable and world-class operations.

Led by a group of competent individuals, the plant focuses on “Right the First Time and No Mistakes” policy. The culture is practiced by every employee every day. Several measures including morning calls, coordination meetings, and Health, Safety, Security, and the Environment (HSSE) safety reviews are observed. The comprehensive process ensures a seamless alignment from management to front line contractors. To supplement the great work done in the workplace, OGP has established a positive relationship with fenceline communities through targeted communications and social performance programs.

The keys to this team’s success are collaboration, authenticity, growth, and outstanding performance. This has resulted to a highly motivated team evidenced by high feedback scores in the Shell People Survey. Capable site leaders and a robust succession plan help achieve the plant’s aim—to provide continued exceptional service that exceeds customers’ expectations.

The UI impact award is a global recognition program that helps drive the right behaviors across UI in the areas of Safety Leadership, Environment and Social Performance, Portfolio Value, Project Delivery, Product Optimization, and People Effectiveness.
