Latest With ASX-Listed Energy Players - LNG, FAR

The energy sector involves companies that are engaged in the production or distribution of energy and corporations that are in the business of exploration and development of oil & gas (O&G) reserves, O&G drilling and refining. The sector also includes secondary resources of energy, for instance, generation of electricity.

Australia has extensive energy resources from both renewable and non-renewable sources and the energy sector is a major contributor to the economy. There are several emerging challenges that could impact the prices and reliability of energy supply. The energy sector is impacted by a number of factors including development (historical) of energy supplies in each state and market conditions, in addition to exposure to international markets.

Let us discuss two ASX-listed companies operating in the energy space.

Liquefied Natural Gas Limited (ASX: LNG)

LNGL Welcomes Approval of Amendments to Vietnam’s PDP7: The company, on 27 December 2019, expressed its gratitude for the recent approval of the amendments to Vietnam’s Power Development Plan 7 (PDP7), which incorporated DeltaOE’s proposed 3,200-MW LNG-to-power project into the plan. This approval has cleared the path for DeltaOE to negotiate and confirm a 25-year power purchase agreement (PPA) with EVN to support its project, thereby empowering LNGL and DeltaOE to finalise a binding sale and purchase agreement for delivery of 2mtpa of U.S. liquefied natural gas from Magnolia LNG.

Magnolia LNG EPC Contract Extended: The company at the end of November 2019 unveiled the extension of the validity period of its current binding engineering, procurement, and construction contract, with the lump sum turnkey EPC US$4.623 billion contract providing an installed EPC cost/tonne of US$525 now valid through 30 June 2020.
