TARGETING 500 liquefied petroleum gas (LPG) outlets by the end of 2014, independent oil firm Eastern Petroleum gas opened its pilot store in Cagayan de Oro last week.
The store, according to Joel Labado, area manager of Eastern Petroleum, is also the first outlet they opened here in Northern Mindanao and is owned by Alwin and Angelina Lim.
“We are hoping to expand here in the region. In fact, we are about to open in Iligan and more outlets.” Labado said.
Located in Sayre Highway in barangay Gusa, their CdeO outlet caters delivery within the city.
“Since we recently launched it here in the city, our promo price is P3,750 per set. And the great news is that when they buy the cylinder set, we can give them a full gas tank in exchange for their empty steel tanks and P1,” Labado added.
Eastern Petroleum is the manufacturer of the Eastern Composite (EC) gas. The first and only composite fiber glass LPG Cylinder in the Philippines. Manufactured from Norway, EC gas’ cylinder set is proven to be safe and economical.
EC Gas LPG cylinder is made of 5,000 layers of fiber strings times making it non – corrosive, translucent, visible and 50 percent lighter than steel tanks.
Also, it has an explosion – proof feature even when deliberately set on fire. Its custom built regulators stop LPG from escaping in case of a hose leak. The regulators block the opening and automatically dispenses when it is securely fastened.
Eastern Petroleum’s EC Gas is known globally for its safety features and for promoting “Safer Kitchens, Safer Homes” through their product.
“People are now positive with the benefits of safety and savings as proven by a number of positive testimonials from satisfied EC Gas LPG household and restaurant users. Some restaurant owners claim that they save up to 30 percent to 40 percent using EC Gas,” Fernando Martinez, Eastern Petroleum chairman, said.
Launched last year in the Philippines, EC gas LPG Cylinder was awarded as the most innovative product at the Entrepreneur and Franchise Expo 2014 held at SM Megamall last June 2014.
Eastern Petroleum exhibited the EC gas at the Kumbira 2014 in Lim Ket Kai Atrium hoping to attract establishments, home owners and culinary schools to patronize the product.
