Philippines' Q2 monthly allocation for domestic ethanol climbs 38% on year

Singapore — The Philippines' Department of Energy set local monthly allocations, or LMAs, for domestic ethanol production at 99,650 cu m for the second quarter of 2019, an official with a major Philippine oil company reported Thursday. This is 7.55% higher than Q1 2019, and 37.82% higher on a yearly basis. In total, 190,650 cu m was allotted for the first half of 2019. The Q2 LMAs comprise of 32,050 cu m for January, 34,250 cu m for February and 33,350 cu m for March, the Department of Energy document showed. "LMAs increased because the number of producers had climbed higher," an ethanol producer based in the Philippines said. Philippine oil companies are required by law to fulfill their domestic allocations before importation of cheaper fuel-grade ethanol is allowed. LMAs are determined every quarter, and oil companies in the country are allocated a purchase quota proportionate to their market share in the retail gasoline market. The Philippine domestic bioethanol reference price inched 0.02% higher on a half-monthly basis to Pesos 55.87/liter ($1,060/cu m) in first half of January, data released Wednesday by the Sugar Regulatory Administration showed. In comparison, the average imported fuel ethanol price for first half of January was $446.56/cu m CIF Philippines, S&P Global Platts data showed, which was less than half of locally produced ethanol prices. -- Donavan Lim,,
