Chevron Philippines Inc. (CPI), marketer of Caltex brand of fuels and lubricants, wishes to assure the public that it has enough fuel supply to service the needs of communities living in Visayas and Mindanao who were severely affected by Typhoon Odette.
While some Caltex stations were badly hit by Typhoon Odette, most remain operational and are continuously serving the needs of consumers in these areas. In strong collaboration with its retailers and marketers, CPI is working hard to address remaining logistical, supply chain, and infrastructure challenges, in order to reopen more Caltex sites in the disaster hit-areas.
“It is indeed a very challenging situation most specially to our countrymen in Visayas and Mindanao who were intensely affected by this typhoon. Our commitment to provide these fuel requirements and serve the needs of these communities remain our top priority,” said CPI General Manager and Country Chairman Billy Liu.
“We sincerely ask the public’s understanding and patience as we work double time to assess and repair the damages, and eventually re-open our remaining closed sites. We are working with various government agencies like the Department of Energy (DOE), various local government units (LGUs) and the Philippine Coast Guard (PCG) to address logistics, supply chain, and manpower concerns,” added Liu.
CPI also remains committed to providing assistance to typhoon Odette victims by donating to the Philippine Red Cross (PRC) for disaster relief and recovery efforts, and by supporting other humanitarian efforts like bringing food and water to the affected areas.
