What it owns


Curzon only has one asset currently, Coos Bay, a 45,000-acre coal bed methane gas project made up of leases in Oregon on the US Pacific Northwest coast.

A previous independent estimate suggested around 1trn cubic feet of gas is contained within the entire Coos Bay acreage, with some 273mln cu ft (mmcf) in the probable (2c) resources category.

Curzon floated on AIM in October 2017 with the idea to workover existing wells to start to generate cashflow, but has had a re-think.

Kaintz says the plan is re-evaluate how best to access the gas ‘we know is there’.

Elsewhere, Curzon is close to finalising a deal with Pared Energy on a project in South Texas, a site that has multi-TCF gas potential

Pared is a privately-owned specialist in Texas assets and Curzon will seek jointly to finance and develop the project.

In July, Curzon agreed to issue secured loan notes of up to £200,000 to high net worth investors.

The oil and gas firm said the proceeds would be used for working capital and to finalise negotiations and documentation associated with its planned involvement in Pared Energy’s Texas gas project.


What the boss says: Scott Kaintz

"The loan facility would assist the company in “bringing to fruition several months of work in laying the foundations for participation in the Texas Gas Project with Pared Energy”.
