Investment summary

Leigh Creek Energy (LCK) offers an option over the in-situ gasification (ISG) of an underground coal resource in South Australia (SA). Recent power blackouts in SA have highlighted the need for more baseload power generation capacity, while high electricity prices incentivise the monetisation of 2,964PJ of 2C ISG gas resource. On 31 March 2017, LCK announced that it had raised A$21.85m of new equity; net proceeds are to be used to fund the company’s pre-commercial ISG demonstration project. A new cornerstone investor has also been added to LCK’s shareholder register, China New Energy. Our RENAV of $0.26/share reflects this new source of funding.

Industry outlook

South Australian power prices have been volatile due to concentrated generator ownership, coal plant closures, limited import capability and higher than national average dominance of renewables. South Australia was the hardest hit state when energy retailers increased pricing by up to 20% in June 2017.
