MULTIPLE PHASE 2 HELIUM SALES AGREEMENTS SECURED
Domestic natural gas and helium producer Renergen is pleased to announce multiple conditional
helium sales agreements from its planned Phase 2 plant at the Virginia Gas Project.
Following the Company’s maiden sales agreement in April for Phase 2 helium, Renergen has
secured a further three take-or-pay agreements for the supply of helium for periods of 10 and 15
years with the following customers:
• Linde Inc.-15-year agreement
• Messer LLC -15-year agreement
• Helium24 LLC -10 year agreement
Renergen has now completed sales agreements for approximately 65% of the 5 ton per day
Phase 2 helium production at the Virginia Gas Project.
All contracts are based on a fixed US$/MCF price, escalating on every anniversary at the US
Consumer Price Index, which will commence from the date of first production anticipated to
commence in the fourth quarter of 2023. The cumulative volume of helium to be supplied under
the contracts is 196 containers per annum.
The agreements are conditional upon completion of a number of project development milestones
at the Virginia Gas Project (including completion of an EPC contract by the appointed EPC
contractor in relation to Phase 2 at the Virginia Gas Project) and either party may terminate due
to a delay in the commencement of production date. Furthermore, should the Company be unable
to deliver at least 80% of annual take-or-pay quantities during any consecutive six-month period
once the plant is operational, the parties may terminate the contract.
Commenting on this major Phase 2 milestone, Renergen Chief Executive Officer Stefano Marani
said “Adding these prestigious names to our customer list for Phase 2 production is an incredible
achievement and a testament to what the team is building at Virginia. These sales agreements
along with the iSi agreement in April accounts for a combined 220 containers per annum, which
represents 65% of design capacity contemplated in the Front-End Engineering and Design
(FEED) of the Phase 2 Project. Importantly, having long-term off-take agreements in place with
tier-one customers provides a strong foundation for the Company when we enter discussions
with lenders to approve project funding, as it eliminates a significant component of market risk.
“The Company has worked hard this year at systematically addressing its remaining execution
risks, from drilling to sales to construction, and we find ourselves in a significantly stronger
position now than ever before.” said CEO Stefano Marani.
