Green Dragon Gas Ltd. has discovered that a number of wells were drilled on five of its six PSC blocks pre July 2013 by a number of Chinese CBM gas companies (the PSC in Guizhou was not the subject of such drilling). As stated in the Company's announcement on 10 July 2013, the Chinese government has reissued the licences covering the Shizhuang North (Shanxi), Qinyuan (Shanxi), Fengcheng (Jiangxi) and Panxie (Anhui) exploration blocks, as well as the commercial production block Shizhuang South (Shanxi). The Company believes that revenue and reserves from the wells drilled by these companies will accrue to the benefit of Green Dragon.
The Company has been in continuous dialogue with the PRC Government and its controlled entities China National Offshore Oil (CNOOC), CNPC, PetroChina and China United Coalbed Methane Corporation (CUCBM) regarding their drilling activities across the Company's PSC blocks. Through such communications, it has been revealed that these companies drilled a total of c. 1,500 wells across these blocks.
