The Company is not intending to seek the approval of security holders for the transaction unless ASX requires it under Listing Rule 11.1.2 or 11.2, and is applying to ASX for a determination as to whether security holder approval is required under the Listing Rules.
Managing Director Paul Atherley Commented:  "The Ordos Basin is the beating heart of the world's fastest growing major economy and is one of the best places in the world to be exploring for gas right now. Any commercial discovery will be hooked into one of the major arterial pipelines that cross the basin. We are particularly excited about PAPL commencing drilling on one of few remaining blocks on the basin's eastern flank - an area that has seen spectacular recent discoveries."
