Corporate Update

The Company has been informed that a winding up petition (the "Petition") has been presented by GIC Limited to the Grand Court of the Cayman Islands seeking the winding up of Green Dragon Gas Limited ("GDG"). GDG is a wholly owned subsidiary of Greka Gas China Limited ("GGC"), which in turn is a wholly owned subsidiary of the Company.

The Petition seeks the winding up of GDG on the ground that it is unable to pay its debts on a cash flow basis, and nominates the Company's Joint Provisional Liquidators to act as the Joint Official Liquidators of GDG. The Petition is listed to be heard on 13 and 14 October 2020.

GDG, in which the Company invested $342m, is an intermediate holding company of all the Group's producing assets which specifically include the GSS (Shizhuang South) and GCZ (Chengzhuang) blocks in Shanxi province in partnership with CNOOC and CNPC respectively.

The Chairman and CEO of the Company, Randeep S. Grewal, commented: "The Board of the Company is in support of the relief sought in the Petition and expects such action to provide the Company's stakeholders with fair market returns upon the sale of GDG assets."
