Dart Energy Provides Update on Its European Operations

Dart Energy International Pte Ltd, the international operating arm of Dart Energy Limited, provides the following update on a number of key developments in its European operations, being:

  • Completion of BG licence restructure
  • Completion of Greenpark Energy acquisition
  • Exercise of option to acquire 2 CBM and shale prospects in Germany
  • Ongoing PEDL133 progress towards production and development
  • Appointment of Mr Mark Lappin as European General Manager

Commenting on these developments, Dart International Chief Executive Officer, John McGoldrick, said:

“Europe is a key area of focus for Dart Energy International and we continue to make great strides in terms of progressing our business in Europe, including successfully finalising a number of transactions and initiatives previously announced.

Our flagship project, PEDL 133 in Scotland, is progressing well, and we hope to begin generating first gasto- electricity revenues from that project in the coming months, with full field development to enable GSA sales expected to commence in the first half of 2013”.

Dart International has now successfully executed a European entry and consolidation strategy, emerging as a leading European CBM / shale gas business with one of the largest onshore licence holdings in the U.K. These markets represent a strong opportunity for unconventional gas producers, given that they are characterised by large gas deficits and thus a reliance on imported gas, gas prices which are currently amongst the highest in the world, stable regulatory regimes, and extensive and accessible infrastructure.

In summary, Dart International’s European business now comprises:

  • a large acreage position in the U.K. and across Europe, prospective for CBM and shale gas;
  • a substantial resource base, including a significant prospective and 2C resource position, and initial 2P and 3P reserves (all independently certified);
  • several projects with short lead times to commercial development, including in particular PEDL 133 project in Airth, Scotland and thereafter Greenpark’s PEDL 159 project in Canonbie, Scotland; and
  • Gas Sales Agreements and other monetisation options in place, with more expected to follow over the next 12-18 months.

Gas to Liquids

The volatile oil price has had a dramatic impact on the Gas to Liquids market and some large-scale projects’ operators have struggled to adapt to this unsteady landscape. Over the last 12 months, we have witnessed a few promising projects halt or even shut down altogether. However, whilst some doors have had to close, other doors are opening with interesting emerging markets on the new GTL field. A few companies have discovered ways to significantly reduce operating costs and prove to be commercially viable despite the current economic climate.

Against this backdrop, SMi’s 19th annual Gas to Liquids conference will discuss how GTL companies can work with the tumbling oil price and how they can build robust strategies and create effective alternative solutions to enable them to weather the storm. The programme will have a special focus on small-scale GTL projects, giving you the chance to hear first-hand success stories from leading GTL operators. The two-day event will provide the ideal platform for experts to discuss with peers what companies need in place in order to overcome today’s challenges, with leading industry figures dissecting cutting edge topics, including project financing, marketing of GTL projects and innovative alternative applications of GTL plants.
