Energy World share price soars as project recommences
The company announced today that, after a 4-year ordeal, it can recommence work on its mid-scale modular LNG facility in Indonesia, the PT. South Sulawesi Project (PTSSLNG).
The Planology Department of the Ministry of Forestry completed a formal review of the historical land documentation that maps where the project is located. In 2017, this land was incorrectly categorised as forestry land.
In today’s announcement, Energy World confirmed that the site has been re-confirmed as industrial land. The company also advised that it is now being encouraged to recommence project construction, along with associated commercial discussions.
To date, US$343 million has been invested in the PTSSLNG project (excluding finance and soft costs). A further US$35–50 million is necessary to bring the first 500,000 tonnes per annum (tpa) of LNG into production. The company stated that it’s confident it can use project debt to obtain additional funding.
Energy World expects the project to rapidly expand to a 2 million tpa production rate using future funds generated from LNG sales.
According to the release, its first LNG sales will occur over the next 18–24 month period.
