Renergen raises $6.72 million to progress South African gas discovery

The company is an emerging helium and domestic natural gas producer which holds the rights to rich renewable natural gas fields in South Africa.

Renergen Ltd - Renergen raises $6.72 million progressing 2019 gas discovery
The placement will be settled on January 30, 2020

Renergen Ltd (ASX:RLT) has raised $6.72 million in a placement of 5.6 million chess depositary interests (CDI) with proceeds to be used to further a gas discovery made at the Virginia project in South Africa last month.

The placement price of $1.20 per security represented a 4.7% discount to the 30-day VWAP and was well supported by Australian and New Zealand offshore investors.

The funds raised will be used to further explore the discovery made in December 2019 while drilling in the sandstone and this included 12% helium levels.

“Well placed” for production

Chief executive officer Stefano Marani said, “With the construction of Phase I well underway and on schedule, we are well placed to commence production of 2,700 GJ of LNG and 350 kilograms of helium per day by mid-2021.

“We have maintained for a while now that the sandstone deposit had potential and last month’s discovery certainly enhances this view with the level of gas flow and helium concentrations achieved.

“Given the findings have been better than expected, we are now reviewing the data and planning how to maximise the flow potential of this area of the production right, as this will inform the magnitude and timing of Phase II.

“It remains the company’s ambition to become a globally significant producer of liquid helium, and the successful capital raise today allows us the extra flexibility to ensure that we consider all possible angles.”
