58 of 63 Shell stations in Cebu now open

·3 min read

TWO weeks after Typhoon Odette (Rai) hit Cebu, more gas stations are now back up and running in Cebu, according to an official of a major oil player.

“Currently, 58 Shell stations are already open. This is the most number of sites open since Typhoon Odette,” Llex Jay Denia, district manager for southern islands of Pilipinas Shell Petroleum Corp., said Friday, Dec. 31, 2021.

“For Metro Cebu, we already have six stations that are in operation 24 hours,” he added.

Denia identified the stations operating 24 hours as the ones in Jose Rizal North Basak, Lawaan, MC Briones Southbound, Minglanilla, Salinas Lahug and Talamban Road.

“For Upcountry Cebu, all our stations in Cebu Province are already open,” Denia added.

For its non-fuels business, Denia said 23 of its 25 Select stores were also open, as were 15 of its 23 Shell Helix Oil Change + facilities.

Last Dec. 20, four days after the storm, Denia had said that of 63 stations (not 62 as earlier reported) Shell has in Cebu up to Bantayan in the north and Carcar City in the south, 50 were already capable of operating.

However, only 32 stations were operating due to the heavy traffic hampering the delivery of fuel inventory from Shell’s Mandaue City depot to the stations.

The heavy traffic was due in part to long lines of people trying to access fuel for their vehicles and generating sets after the storm caused a province-wide blackout.

The long lines have since been reduced with the reopening of more stations as well as the restoration of power by the Visayan Electric in more areas in the metro that has reduced the need for fuel to power generators for residential, commercial and institutional use. (CTL)
