Po Valley Energy inches closer to gas production in Italy


Po Valley Energy Ltd (ASX:PVE) has had its most successful quarter to date, with exploration and development success and expanding its portfolio of hydrocarbon assets in Italy.

The Company is on the verge of becoming a gas producer in the under-supplied Italian market as it brings its first fields into production – with additional fields brought on-stream. PVE is on track to connect its first production wells to Italy’s national pipeline grid during 2009.

Low production costs, easy connection to an extensive pipeline grid and the historically strong price for gas in Italy intersect to paint an attractive reward profile for PVE’s investors.
