In response, Antonio E. Labios, regional director of the Department of Energy (DoE) Visayas Field Office, said that the claims of the fisherfolks regarding the reduction in fish catch is yet to be validated and substantiated by scientific studies.
Labios said that 12 of the 14 barangays of Argao have passed resolutions endorsing the project and that meetings with the mayors of Argao and Sibonga, as well as that of the governor have shown that they are supportive with the project. "We just have to address the issues of the fisherfolks," he said. However, the four-day IFFM further discovered that the communities as well as local government officials were not consulted by the mining companies before entering the seas, in violation of several Philippine laws. It was also disturbed by reports that some local government officials are involved in unethical relations with the mining companies and that the military has been deployed in certain areas to intimidate and quell the growing citizens' movement against off-shore mining. Labios further claimed that based on their consultation with the Environmental Management Bureau (EMB) of the Department of Environment and Natural Resources (DENR), an Environmental Compliance Certificate (ECC) is not required for NorAsian to conduct the survey as said document is only needed once production is started. Regardless, NorAsian and JAPEX did their best to comply with environmental guidelines, which includes consultation with various stakeholders, claimed Labios. Labios said that they would soon be signing a Memorandum of Agreement (MOA) with the Municipalities of Argao and Sibonga so as to lift the recent cease and desist order imposed by the provincial government of Cebu as per Executive Order No. 09 signed by Governor Gwendolyn Garcia. Labios said that the purpose of the seismic survey is to minimize if not eliminate the environmental impact once the oil drilling is started. "The DoE and the service contractor do not shy away in addressing the concern of the fisherfolk," Labios said. Regional Director Antonio Labios of the Department of Energy in Central Visayas (DOE-7) said the agency is validating the claims of fisherfolk that their livelihood is affected by the NorAsian oil exploration activities. "Fish catch, according to the fishermen, is also affected by the season. The decrease in fish yield could also be permanent or temporary. We have to find that out," he told reporters yesterday. "We would get baseline data from the municipal fisheries and the BFAR (Bureau of Fisheries and Aquatic Resources)," Labios said. Labios said the target of the project is Argao town and that the agency already secured approval from 11 out of 14 barangays in the town. Apologies by Department of Energy in Central Visayas (DOE-7) regional director Antonio Labios and NorAsia Energy Ltd. representatives did little to appease the irate governor during a meeting yesterday. "No more surveys unless you come up with and show us a clear system wherein there will be no more miscommunication," Garcia told Labios and NorAsia officials. Labios, said there was a simple "miscommunication" in DOE's dealings with Galeos and Bacaltos. Labios told the governor that he would make sure that communication gaps are addressed.

But Department of Energy (DoE) Visayas director Antonio Labios clarified that NorAsian has been doing a location site survey, not a seismic survey, which was completed in 2007.
It would have to locate the drill site before the actual drilling could be done in the first quarter of 2009, Labios said. "The seabed must be examined to find out if there are obstructions like shallow gas. Shallow gas is dangerous as it could explode if hit," Labios explained. Labios said the Environmental Management Bureau (EMB) cleared the location site survey. He added that the ongoing survey would not damage the marine environment. On the issue of dismantled fish pens, Labios said the fish pens were deliberately placed in the area to obstruct the ongoing location site survey. Before the NorAsian vessel conducted the survey, he said, the company cleared the area and even paid P10,000 to each fish pen owner in the Sibonga area. However, Labios said the NorAsian people were surprised when several fish pens went up on September 4.

DOE-7 director Antonio Labios and Energy Industry Management Chief Saul Gonzales were named as respondents.
The guard later told the group that Labios was not around and that the group was not allowed to proceed to the DOE-7 office on the 11th floor. Department of Energy Visayas Director Antonio Labios explained this to members of the Integrated Bar of the Philippines during a dialogue. Labios said several sectors have been badly affected by the rise in the price of imported fuel in the past few months. In the case of oil exploration in the Cebu-Bohol Strait, Labios said Nor-Asian is the service contractor, through the Philippine Energy Contracting Ground on oil. Labios said that before a service contract is issued, the DOE checks the contractor’s records of environmental compliance in previous projects. Members of the Save Tañon Strait Citizens' Movement were disappointed when they were not allowed to go inside the office of the Department of Energy in Central Visayas (DOE-7) yesterday to personally hand the fisherfolk's testimonial letter to Regional Director Antonio Labios. Alonzo asked Regional Director Antonio Labios of the Department of Energy in Central Visayas (DoE-7) to review the list of names of Argao and Sibonga residents who were given financial assistance. Labios said the DoE-7 made a list and distributed the financial assistance. He said they would review the list anew and give assistance to others affected by the project. Labios said the oil exploration activity is part of the government's goal to reduce the country's dependency on foreign oil. He also said their agency screens all companies to determine their compliance with environmental standards. The letter is also addressed to Department of Energy 7 Director Antonio Labios, Lt.
