Will Deuterium exploration really make the Philippines as the richest country in the world?

As early as 1986, there has been talks about the exploration of Deuterium in the Philippines. Dueterium, also known as the “white Gold in the Philippines”, is hydrogen water without Oxygen. There are many known uses of the deposit and Philippines is known to have the greatest amount of Deuterium in the world.

30 years have passed and still no Deuterium explorations is taking place. If Deuterium is said to be the “fuel of the future”?, how come the Philippines have not started taking advantage of it yet? Is it the key to our country’s wealth? Or is it nothing but a hoax?

Uses Of Deuterium

Deuterium gas is also called heavy Hydrogen because it is basically a heavier, and more stable isotope of Hydrogen. It is odorless, non-toxic, odorless, diatomic and highly flammable gas. It can be used in fusion power and nuclear power. It is also used in the production of hydrogen fuel that are now used in Canada, Germany and Sweden. Industries will benefit from it because it is also used in deuterated optical fibers, lasers, R&D laboratories and Semiconductor rims.

Only In The Philippines

According to Filipino scientist Anthony Halog, Philippines was identified as the country who holds the greatest amount of Deuterium deposits in the world, mainly because of its location. Most of the deposits are located in the Philippine Deep, an area in Surigao.

Halog said that the economic potential of Deuterium is limitless. Revenues amounting to US$34 Billion per year was projected if ever operations are fully implemented. It’s enough to wipe out the entire debt of the country in just one year.

Is It A Hoax? 

There are many theories as to why up until now, the potential of Deuterium has not been fully tapped. One is that the big oil companies and those in power have been preventing the Philippines from tapping this great wealth. Another theory is that studying Deuterium in one of the deepest trenches in the world is not an easy task.

A 1988 article from Manila Standard Today, Roger Posadas, dean of the UP College of Science at the time, sums it all up.

“A gauge of our country’s extremely unscientific culture and strong proclivity toward reliance on miracles as solutions to our national problems.”

Very well said.
Here’s an excerpt of the news where it states the benefits to the government and the Filipinos:


At 12 million barrels per day capacity priced at US$7.00 per barrel, this is US$84 million per day or US$30.66 billion per year, enough to wipe out all existing foreign debts of the Government in one year, revenue-wise in Foreign Exchange.

Public works, private construction, economic and financial booms are expected to happen in the Philippines in the same manner as those which happened in the Middle East and financial centers of the world from 1974 to 1984, with everybody earning their respective comfortable livelihood, while pricing basic prime necessities at reasonable and affordable levels.

Deuterium and Hydrogen Fuel is the final and lasting hope of the Filipino People and the Government to be great again. This untapped source of energy supply will make the Philippines one of the richest country in the world."

Jarius Bondoc in his article in the Philippine Star on 2004 said:

"Every time there’s an oil crunch, as now, people talk about substitute fuels. And such talk invariably leads to the most amazing substitute of all – deuterium – that comes from the most basic element and thus will never run out. It exists in large enough quantity for world use only in the Philippines. Once mined from the seas, it can put RP in the center of world trade, solve the debt crisis, and make billionaires out of long-suffering Filipinos. But as with many things Filipino, extraction of deuterium has yet to move from mere talk to real work. Only in the Philippines, indeed. "
