BATANGAS CITY – Officials of a firm putting up an oil depot terminal here committed to comply with government regulations on environmental laws following the groundbreaking of its property investment in Barangay Simlong over the weekend.

Ceasar Wong Chu King, director of the Wong Chu King Properties, said they will schedule construction of the project once they have completed the Department of Environment and Natural Resources (DENR) environment compliance certificate (ECC) and the appropriate permit from the city government.

“We will comply with all the local laws and we will comply with all DENR regulations. We will be very conscious of the needs of the barangay and we will give priority to the local people because our family is in the business for 75 years, which is a proof that we have a very good relationship with our people,” Wong Chu King said.

He said the 100-million-liter oil depot will be using state-of-the-art facility at a five-hectare lot of the Wong Chu King Properties in Barangay Simlong and would be completed in 18 months or operational by the first quarter of 2021.


“It’s very heart-warming and we feel very welcome to do business here in Batangas City. We look forward to a long term relationship with the city government and we look forward to serving the people of Batangas with this investment,” he added.

Mayor Beverley Rose Dimacuha thanked the firm for investing in the city.

“Our biggest asset is our people who are technically competent and very hardworking. We look forward to a stronger and lasting partnership with Wong Chu King,” Dimacuha said.

Dimacuha told the investor the city’s priority on environmental protection and disaster preparedness and the local government’s business permit processing as a national benchmark.

Batangas 5th District Rep. Marvin Mariño welcomed the oil depot terminal investment as “one of the most profitable investments of Wong Chu King Properties”.

He also assured his congressional district's and the city government support for the multi-million investment that would benefit the city and its residents.

Rodolfo Mendoza, Barangay Simlong chair, also expressed elation that the firm had chosen their barangay as host to the oil terminal project as this would open opportunities for the residents.

“Umaasa kami na tutuparin ng Wong Chu King ang kanilang commitment sa Barangay Simlong partikular sa health, sports at employment ng aming mga residente (We hope Wong Chu King would fulfill their commitment to Barangay Simlong particularly on health, sports and employment of our residents),” Mendoza said.
