South Pacific Inc. (SPI) is a 100% Filipino-owned company engaged in the downstream business of LPG industry.
Situated in an ideal and strategic location in Calaca, Batangas, SPI’s large storage capacity and ample draft of jetty makes it capable of receiving refrigerated cargoes from Very Large Gas Carriers (VLGC) which gives the company the most competitive gas cost in the country.
SPI, alongside its stakeholders, commits to continuously provide quality LPG products and to render the most efficient service to its customers in fulfillment of its Vision.
Geared towards amplifying its business, SPI is continuously making progressive efforts through expanding and establishing its network. To date, SPI also operates and maintains its terminal in Mandaue, Cebu and San Simon, Pampanga.
In 1998, the Ty family braved the LPG industry targeting the Cagayan Valley Region (Region II) as its main market. As business progressed, a network that spanned around 85% of the region has been established. Providing quality LPG (Liquefied Petroleum Gas) across the Island of Luzon, the company expanded its operations and built more refilling plants in the National Capital Region, Region I, Region III, and Region IV-A.
Together with the Calaca Industrial Seaport Corp. (CISC), owned by Udenna Group, SPI’s terminal is strategically situated in a multi-hectare Industrial Park located at Calaca, Batangas – an ideal and strategic location due to the deep portions of Balayan Bay and its own port capable of handling Very Large Gas Carrier (VLGC) with up to 14 meters draft or up to 55,000 deadweight tonnage (DWT).
With almost five(5) years of operation, SPI is the fastest growing LPG company in the Philippines. To date, it is continuously expanding in the Visayas and Mindanao regions in its commitment to constantly provide quality LPG products as well as to render the most efficient service to its customers.
