Company news

Investment summary

G3 Exploration (formerly Green Dragon Gas) recently announced the signature of Supplementary Agreements with China United Coalbed Methane Corporation, a subsidiary of China National Offshore Oil Corporation (CNOOC), for the GSS and GSN blocks. The agreement resolves uncertainty over the allocation of historical costs. Management believes the agreement is a material milestone for the company, and that joint co-operation with CNOOC on the exploitation of the GSS and GSN blocks should lead to enhanced gas sales and greater certainty of cash flows for equity and debt holders. In the short term, the focus is on a Hong Kong listing.

Executive Interview - Green Dragon Gas

Industry outlook

G3E’s gas price is largely driven by domestic policy; however, we expect that in the medium term, domestic regulated pricing will trend towards LNG import price parity. We assume that current realisations ($7.5/mcf as a blended average of CNG and PNG prices) will remain until 2018, beyond which it will track towards Chinese LNG import price parity.
