Updated and Corrected ASX Announcement

Reference is made to the Company's ASX announcement of 8 October 2019. The announcement was not complete in that it was released before the comments of NQGP the other party to the MOU were incorporated. The following version of the announcement now incorporates these.

Memorandum of Understanding signed to bring new domestic gas supplies to the North Queensland market

  • Blue Energysigns non-binding MOU with North Queensland Gas Pipeline to bring new domestic gas supplies to the North Queensland market.
  • Supply source- 216 PJ of 3P reserves in Blue's ATP 814PSapphire Block
  • Bowen Basin is the lowest cost east coast gas province for the development of 2C resources1
  • 15,000 PJof gas is estimated in the Northern Bowen Basin Gas Province: equivalent to 30 years of gas supply for eastern Australia at current demand
  • 3,248 PJof the 15,000 PJ in the Northern Bowen Gas Province are owned by Blue Energy
  • Blue continues to progress the southern pipeline route option

Blue Energy Limited (ASX: BLU) is pleased to advise that it has signed a non-binding MOU with North Queensland Gas Pipeline No.1 Pty Ltd and North Queensland Gas Pipeline No. 2 Pty Ltd (together referred to as NQGP) to facilitate bringing new domestic gas supplies into the strong Townsville market.

NQGP is North Queensland's only source of natural gas. The 391km onshore natural gas pipeline system transports gas from the existing Moranbah Gas Project in the Bowen Basin to power and industrial users in Townsville, Queensland.

As part of the MOU, NQGP will facilitate introductions to potential customers in Townsville for Blue Energy's Northern Bowen Basin gas reserves in the Sapphire Block of ATP814P, which is located in close proximity to the NQGP. Blue will also seek to negotiate access to the existing Moranbah Gas Project (MGP) and gas processing facilities to minimise infrastructure duplication and hence cost for end users in the event Blue is successful in signing new gas buyers.

This MOU will assist the development of the supply and delivery of new affordable domestic gas to North Queensland gas users (and facilitate the development of the Sapphire reserves), who are seeking to secure long-term reliable and affordable domestic gas supply as a primary energy source or as feedstock for manufacturing.

Blue Energy Chairman, Mr John Ellice-Flint, said "It is pleasing to be able to develop this opportunity to bring new domestic gas supplies to market given the Australian Energy Market Regulator (AEMO) forecast of gas shortages for the east coast domestic market, together with price escalation.

"The development of new domestic gas supplies to North Queensland will deliver regional economic growth opportunities through new industries such as the Imperium3 Townsville

consortium's proposed $3 billion 18 GWh lithium-ion battery cell manufacturing facility in Townsville. Imperium3 Townsville recently completed a Feasibility Study which has been submitted to the Queensland Government2.With the potential re opening of Queensland Nickel at Yabulu in Townsville3both projects will require substantial domestic gas supplies.

"Thousands of new jobs in North Queensland depend on reliable and affordable domestic gas supplies over the next 30 years and Blue Energy is determined to play a major role in supplying domestic gas to meet this demand. The royalties paid on domestic gas production flow to the Queensland Government".

BACKGROUND

New domestic gas supply for the Townsville market would initially be drawn from Blue Energy's ATP814P Sapphire Block which has been independently assessed to contain nearly 216 PJ of 3P reserves and a further 186 PJ of Contingent Resource, and is located only 12 km from the existing Moranbah Gas Project gas processing facilities and less than 2 km from gas field gathering infrastructure.

The broader Northern Bowen Basin Gas Province has a discovered resource of approximately 15,000 PJ of gas which is sufficient to underpin the east coast domestic gas market for the next 30 years, based on current market conditions. Blue's component of this estimate is currently 3,248PJ. Development of this Basin-wide resource and a single large diameter multiuser gas trunk line connection to the south would provide security of supply for east coast manufacturers and with this additional supply, will put downward pressure on prices. The additional gas availability would also generate the expansion of industry in the greater North Queensland region.

In this regard, Blue has received Queensland Government approval of the Pipeline Survey Licence 2037 from ATP814P to the Wallumbilla connection near Rolleston and is progressing this option.
