So what on earth is causing this share price explosion for Nuenergy today?
Indonesian approval lights a rocket
Nuenergy’s explosive opening this morning can be put down to an ASX release the company made today. It came out just before market open. In this announcement, Nuenergy stated that it had received an “advance notice” of a virtual ceremony that will take place on 17 June.
The company states that it “has been proposed” that the Indonesian government’s Special Task Force for Upstream Oil and Gas Business Activities will grant approval for Nuenergy’s Plan of Development 1 at its Tanjung Enim Block in South Sumatra.
The Tanjung Enim Block houses a deposit of coal bed methane, which Nuenergy is planning on developing. The company tells us that this will “mark the first grant of a plan of development for CBM in Indonesia. Nuenergy states that this announcement represents “an evolution from an exploration to a development phase” for the Tanjung Enim Block.
Nuenergy’s chief executive officer, Dr Ian Wang stated that: “This development represents a major step for the company and Indonesia’s CBM industry to transition from exploratory into a commercial phase.”
Nuenergy has promised to make a further “detailed announcement” on 17 June. Depending on a final grant of approval, that is.
