The Minister of Energy



The Commissioner of the Budget



The Treasurer of the Philippines



The Chairman of the Philippine National Oil Co.


To alleviate the temporary aberrations in the petroleum product supply situation, the Philippine National Oil Co. (PNOC) has negotiated the spot purchase from Kuwait of some 300,000 barrels of diesel oil and 150,000 barrels of naphtha.  The foregoing products will be purchased at spot market prices and it is expected that the PNOC would incur costs estimated at P 28 million over and above normal importation costs exclusive of the duty free importation savings in the case of naphtha.


In view thereof, the Treasurer of the Philippines is hereby directed to release for the purpose P 28 million out of the special fund created pursuant to Section 8 (j) of Republic Act No. 6173, as amended, to the PNOC.
