Blackstone share price soars on feasibility study

Earlier today, Blackstone announced the completion of its pre-feasibility study (PFS) for its Ta Khoa Refinery Project (TKR) in northern Vietnam.

Blackstone highlighted that the PFS demonstrated the project will require low capital intensity to produce Class I nickel at scale.

The company noted that the project will have a refinery capacity of up to 400ktpa of nickel concentrate and a 10-year life-of-operations. As a result, Blackstone will be able to produce battery-grade nickel for the lithium-ion battery industry.

According to Blackstone’s PFS, the life-of-operations revenue for TKR is estimated at US$14 billion. In addition, the project is estimated to produce an operating cash flow of US$4.5 billion.

Blackstone noted that an upfront project capital of US$491 million would be paid back in 1.5 years from first production.

Blackstone management highlighted the PFS as an important milestone towards achieving the company’s vision to integrate lithium-ion battery supply chains and enable a green solution from mine to consumer.
