UPDATED TRADING STATEMENT
Renergen has had a strong year and made significant progress on developing the Virginia
project. In particular, the project has developed from compressed natural gas to liquefied
natural gas, thus increasing the foot print for delivery of product and customer catchment area.
The total proven helium reserves have been defined at close to 6 billion cubic feet, and a
meaningful off-take agreement for natural gas has been secured with a blue-chip company for
use in its trucks. These developments were only possible through streamlining workstreams
and investing in the necessary manpower, skills and engineering required to bring the project
to where we are today.
As a result of streamlining efforts, the Company announced the impending write-down of the
Ivory Coast hydro project in our half-year results which will be reflected for the first time in our
full year results. Furthermore the increased expenditure required to develop the Virginia
project to its current status has also contributed, so despite the period showing increased
losses, overall the Company has made good progress on the main asset and is in a stronger
position now as a result.
