Company Overview

A New Approach to Asian Energy


Lion Energy Limited is an ASX listed oil & gas exploration & production company focused on Indonesia, where it has been operating for over fifteen years. It has two existing conventional Production Sharing Contracts (PSC’s) – Seram and South Block A - and an early mover position in the fledgling Indonesian unconventional industry via four Joint Study Applications.

Lion’s leadership team has vast experience in the south-east Asian oil and gas industry, particularly Indonesia. In its recent recapitalisation, two Indonesian strategic investors, Risco Energy and Tower Energy, became substantial shareholders of the company.

Lion’s transformation from a conventional oil producer to an Indonesian unconventional oil & gas pioneer is supported by several key facets:

  • Declining conventional oil and gas reserves, increasing gas prices.
  • Competitive terms, government actively promoting exploration for unconventional oil and gas resources.
Clear strategy
  • Targeting shale gas/oil and tight gas/oil in prolific Sumatran basins, leveraging synergies in conventional exploration, infrastructure and market access.
Well funded
  • $9.5 million in private placement and public raising to fund exciting 2015 program (exploration drilling, appraisal wells and development drilling).
Dynamic new team.
  • The board, management and senior advisors having extensive experience and proven track records in the Asian energy space.
Impressive existing acreage footprint and clear growth plans
  • Strategic interest in producing Seram PSC (~75 bopd net).
  • 35% ownership of highly prospective conventional North Sumatran South Block A.
  • Rights to progress 4 unconventional joint study applications, multi tcf unrisked potential.
