Vintage Managing Director, Neil Gibbins, said “We are extremely pleased that, firstly, the placement was heavily oversubscribed and, secondly, there has been such a strong early response to the SPP. In relation to the upcoming fracture stimulation and flow testing of the Vali discovery, preparatory work is well underway. At this stage we are on track to commence the stimulation of Vali-1 ST1, in early July, as previously anticipated. This is an incredibly exciting time for the Company as we look to transition from being an ‘explorer and appraiser’ to also a producer of gas. We have stated clearly and consistently that we are focused on being part of the solution to Australia’s east coast gas crisis, and we firmly believe that the Vali discovery will be the first of many discoveries to deliver on this goal”.
