Loyz Energy To Grow Into A Sizeable Independent Energy Player
Loyz Energy, said it will be able to expedite its plans to grow into a significant independent player in the upstream energy sector. This came after the company divested its sanitary ware business, which was held under its wholly owned subsidiary Sim Siang Choon Hardware, for $9m in March. This will enable the company to focus all its resources on strengthening its position in the exploration and production segment as a sizeable independent player. Executive director of Loyz Energy, Adrian Lee, said that the company will be drilling its first well in North Dakota in the US, and it will also commence gas production at the Baola field in India. The drilling programme in the US fall under a participation-and-exploration agreement inked in Aug-12 with Rex Oil & Gas and Norway-based Fram Exploration to develop the latter’s leases in North Dakota and Colorado. Loyz Energy expects to see an impact on its revenue and cash flow from 4Q13 onwards.
