Source: Company estimates as of yearend 2018. Average gas price US$8.98/Mcf for producing blocks.

USD/RMB FX Ratio of 6.8.

Note: Net gas reserves and NPV estimates are based on company's participating interest in the blocks.

Note: 5% escalation applied per year to future operating costs, capital costs and sales prices.

 

Highlights:

 

·     Total net proved 1P (P90) of 134 Bcf valued at US$ 682M (2017: 98 Bcf)

·     Total net proved + probable (P50) 2P of 409 Bcf valued at US$ 2.5B (2017: 377 Bcf)

·     Total net proved + probable + possible (P10) 3P of 2.1 Tcf valued at US$12.59B (2017: 2.0 Tcf)

·     Best net contingent (2C) resources of 668 Bcf and Best net prospective resources of 1329 Bcf

·     Average wellhead gas price (inclusive of subsidy) of US$8.98/Mcf (RMB 2.16/m3)

 

The reserves estimates have been prepared by the company's team of engineers on eight coal bed methane exploration and development blocks namely GSS, GCZ, GSN, GQY-A, GQY-B, GGZ, GFC and GPX.

Randeep S. Grewal, Executive Chairman and Founder commented:

 

"Our large asset base is well accounted for in the released annual reserves report which continues to reinforce the potential of our quality and well positioned asset base in China.

 

In addition to the US$1.3 billion invested into the two commercially producing GDG gas blocks in partnership with our partners CNOOC and PetroChina, we have a further US$275 million invested into our large exploration portfolio. In accordance with our business plan, we expect to divest our producing blocks and continue to focus on the appraisal of our large exploration acreage. 

 

Our twenty-two years of consistent dedication to developing CBM in China continues to be strongly supported by Government commitment to this vast domestic clean energy resource. We continue our commitment to working closely with our partners CNOOC, CNPC and PetroChina to conclude our focus on developing the remaining exploration blocks and de-risk the development profile across our vast acreage."

 

G3 Exploration Ltd; Exploration & Development Assets

Reserve volumes reported as at 31 December 2018 specifically includes Guizhou block (GGZ), Shizhuang North block (GSN) and Qinyuan block (GQY A&B) where the exploration team has made significant progress towards the exploration and development of CBM across the regions. The estimation of reserves and resources reflects the following achievements during 2018:

·     Guizhou block (GGZ) exploration program concluded the Chinese reserve report successfully.

·     12 wells placed online in Shizhuang North block (GSN).

·     400 sq km of 2D Seismic added with an additional 14 wells drilled in Qinyuan block (GQY A&B) for a total of 69 wells drilled.

·     Exploration portfolio of 23.7 TCF of Gas in Place discovered.

 

Guizhou Province is located in southern China and currently sources the majority of its gas needs by pipeline from other provinces. As such, prices in Guizhou attract a transportation premium to encourage the delivery of gas to the province. It is expected that gas sourced and produced directly in Guizhou will also benefit from this premium as it is a factor in determining city-gate end user pricing, making these assets even more desirable.
