This paper is a scoping of public interest issues in Philippine oil and gas production. It is a preliminary examination of these issues for the use of Bantay Kita and other civil society organizations concerned with the extractive industries.
The scoping was instructed by primary data from interviews with key informants and secondary data—from relevant laws, reports from the Department of Energy (DOE), and other documents and literature.
