The project includes a liquified natural gas storage and processing facility, oil refinery and petrochemical plant, and a 1,200MW power plant, among others.

The Public-Private Partnership (PPP) project will be composed of 1200MW liquefied natural gas combined cycle power plant; chemical industrial park; water-generation manufacturing facility; LPG & Storage Terminal; 20M metric tons refinery; Petrochemical Complex; and a storage facility together with an associated Terminal and International Port and Cargo Terminal.

The project in Davao Oriental will rise in a 1,000-hectare area. The location is being considered strategic because of the presence of the Davao Gulf.
