Motorists coming from the northernmost part of Luzon and headed south toward Pampanga or Metro Manila will soon no longer have to worry about their vehicles running out of fuel when they get onto the southbound stretch of the Subic-Clark-Tarlac Expressway. That’s because independent petroleum company Seaoil recently held a ground-breaking ceremony for its SCTEX Mega Station.
The service station will be built in collaboration with CityMall Commercial Centers, the mall development arm of Double Dragon Properties, which will put up a mall in the area to house restaurants, convenience stores and pasalubong kiosks.
To be located on the southbound half of the expressway in Concepcion, Tarlac, the Seaoil SCTEX Mega Station will sit on a two-hectare tract of land. It is expected to open "by the end of 2015."
"This is one of our biggest projects this year, and it is very significant because the agreement features the convergence of 100% Filipino-owned companies," said Seaoil chief executive Glenn Yu. "We are honored to partner with Double Dragon, one of the fastest-growing commercial and residential property developers in the Philippines."
