MANILA - The maintenance shutdown of the Malampaya gas field was completed safely and ahead of schedule, Energy Secretary Alfonso Cusi said Friday. 

“The measures undertaken helped avert any power outage as a result of the Malampaya shutdown," he said.

The energy chief said the public should continue to adopt energy efficiency and conservation practices to help cushion the impact of the shutdown on power supply.

The Malampaya Gas to Power Project supplies natural gas to five natural gas power plants located in Batangas.
