Advent Signs Letter of Intent for Gas Supply
The non-binding LOI provides an initial framework for discussion, information sharing and negotiation towards a possible gas supply agreement by the fourth quarter of 2014. This timeframe corresponds with WARL's intended feasibility studies and financial investment decision timetable.
Commenting on the LOI, Advent's Executive Director David Breeze stated:
"This is an excellent development for Advent and its key onshore Bonaparte Basin assets EP386 and RL1 in the drive for their commercialisation. Partnership with a possible neighbouring aquaculture project of global scale and significance demonstrates an exciting future for the Kununurra region, along with shareholders of both parties. The possible provision of gas to WARL would separate Advent's commercial position from the volatility of global commodity prices and provide a stable platform for sustainable company growth. We look forward to working towards an objective that will have considerable benefits to both Advent and WARL."
WARL is a subsidiary of ASX listed CO2 Group Limited, and is working towards establishing a large-scale Protein Project for Asian markets named 'Project Sea Dragon'. Project Sea Dragon is a large-scale integrated land-based aquatic operation which will produce up to 100,000 metric tonnes of prawns for international markets. The experienced team in place was instrumental in developing one of the world's largest prawn farming companies in Saudi Arabia. Six million dollars have been invested to date on project feasibility, with site locations in northern Australia secured.
Advent's major shareholders remain MEC Resources (ASX:MMR), BPH Energy (ASX:BPH), Talbot Group and Grandbridge (ASX:GBA).
