The Philippine National Oil Company was created on November 9, 1973 as a government-owned and controlled corporation founded under martial law Presidential Ferdinand Marcos to supply oil to the Philippines. Since then, its charter has been amended several times to include exploration, exploitation and development of all energy resources in the country. Wikipedia.

Tight gas reservoirs represent a significant portion of natural gas reservoirs worldwide. Production at economical rates from tight gas reservoirs in general is very challenging not only due to the very low intrinsic permeability but also as a consequence of several different forms of formation damage that can occur during drilling, completion, stimulation, and production operations. Tight gas reservoirs generally do not flow gas to surface at commercial rates, unless the well is completed using advanced technologies and efficiently stimulated. One of the major damage mechanisms in tight gas reservoirs is liquid phase trapping damage that is controlled by pore system geometry, capillary pressure, relative permeability and interfacial tension between the invading trapped fluid and reservoir fluid. The liquid invasion damage into the rock matrix reduces the near wellbore permeability as a result of temporary or permanent trapping of liquid inside the porous media, and results in low productivity in tight gas reservoirs. This study presents evaluation of damage mechanisms in tight gas reservoirs and the methods that can provide improved well productivity by minimizing damage to the formation. Numerical reservoir simulation is integrated with tight gas field data analysis and core flooding experiments to better understand the effect of different damage mechanisms on well productivity in order to propose the possible remedial strategies that can help achieve viable gas production rates from tight gas reservoirs.

Using recently gathered onland structural and 2D/3D offshore seismic data in south and central Palawan (Philippines), this paper presents a new perspective in unraveling the Cenozoic tectonic history of the southeastern margin of the South China Sea. South and central Palawan are dominated by Mesozoic ophiolites (Palawan Ophiolite), distinct from the primarily continental composition of the north. These ophiolites are emplaced over syn-rift Eocene turbidites (Panas Formation) along thrust structures best preserved in the ophiolite-turbidite contact as well as within the ophiolites. Thrusting is sealed by Early Miocene (~20Ma) sediments of the Pagasa Formation (Isugod Formation onland), constraining the younger limit of ophiolite emplacement at end Late Oligocene (~23Ma). The onset of ophiolite emplacement at end Eocene is constrained by thrust-related metamorphism of the Eocene turbidites, and post-emplacement underthrusting of Late Oligocene - Early Miocene Nido Limestone. This carbonate underthrusting at end Early Miocene (~16Ma) is marked by the deformation of a seismic unit corresponding to the earliest members of the Early - Middle Miocene Pagasa Formation. Within this formation, a tectonic wedge was built within Middle Miocene (from ~16Ma to ~12Ma), forming a thrust-fold belt called the Pagasa Wedge. Wedge deformation is truncated by the regionally-observed Middle Miocene Unconformity (MMU ~12Ma). A localized, post-kinematic extension affects thrust-fold structures, the MMU, and Late Miocene to Early Pliocene carbonates (e.g. Tabon Limestone). This structural set-up suggests a continuous convergent regime affecting the southeastern margin of the South China Sea between end Eocene to end Middle Miocene. The ensuing structures including juxtaposed carbonates, turbidites and shallow marine clastics within thrust-fold belts have become ideal environments for hydrocarbon generation and accumulation. Best developed in the Northwest Borneo Trough area, the intensity of thrust-fold deformation decreases towards the northeast into offshore southwest Palawan. © 2013 Elsevier Ltd.
