InterOil Corporation (NYSE: IOC) and Pacific LNG Operations Ltd. have signed a non-binding memorandum with Energy World Corporation Ltd. (AX: EWC), which has a permit to construct an LNG Hub Terminal and a 300-megawatt (MW) combined cycle gas turbine (CCGT) power plant located on Pagbilao Grande Island, Philippines, to negotiate taking an ownership interest and establish an associated downstream gas sale, purchase, transmission and distribution services company. 

The LNG Hub Terminal is designed to be located adjacent to an existing power plant and consist of facilities for unloading, storage, regasification, and processing of LNG and/or regasified LNG of 1 bcf per day. The CCGT power plant is being designed to consist of 2 x 150MW modules and planned to be built in two phases. A key basis for exploring the partnership is that the CCGT power plant could be the anchor buyer of the proposed PNG EWC Joint Venture LNG facility, sourcing up to 500,000 tonnes per annum. 

The gas distribution services company would be established to purchase, transmit, distribute and sell LNG and/or regasified LNG on a wholesale or retail basis to the Philippine gas market. 

Phil Mulacek, CEO, stated, "We look forward to progressing our discussions to expand our existing relationship with EWC. The LNG Hub Terminal project and its associated LNG off-take agreement for base load power in the Philippines has the capacity to underpin the proposed PNG EWC LNG facility, assisting our progress toward a final investment decision for that facility."
