Tlou Energy gets environmental approval for Boomslang Project

admin No Comments

first_img Tlou Energy gets environmental approval for Boomslang Project. (Credit: Tumisu from Pixabay) Tlou Energy Limited is an ASX, AIM and BSE listed company focused on delivering cleaner electricity in Botswana and southern Africa using gas and solar power. The Company’s first proposed development is the Lesedi Power Project (“Lesedi”) which includes the construction of a power station and sale of electricity in Botswana. In addition, the Company has two large exploration areas designated Mamba and Boomslang.Boomslang Project – Environmental Impact Statement (EIS) ApprovedBotswana’s Department of Environmental Affairs (DEA) has approved the EIS for Tlou’s Boomslang project. The Boomslang Prospecting Licence PL011/2019 is located adjacent to the Company’s Lesedi power project.All proposed project activities outlined under the EIS have been authorised. These include:Drilling of core holes and stratigraphy boreholes;·    Conducting seismic and geomagnetic surveys;·    Pilot testing pods, monitoring wells and evaporation ponds; and·    Installation of pumping monitoring, gathering lines and evaluation equipment.Tlou believes the Boomslang project can complement the more mature Lesedi and Mamba projects, particularly given the presence of the highly prospective Serowe coal seam. The Lesedi and Mamba projects primarily target the deeper Morupule coal seam.EIS approval for exploration of the Boomslang permit (Tlou 100%) represents another key milestone for the Company. Successful exploration and development of the Boomslang area could facilitate Tlou’s longer term strategy of expansion beyond the current Lesedi project area.Lesedi Project – Commencement of DevelopmentThe Company plans to commence work on the development of the Lesedi project as soon as possible. Key stages to achieve first revenue are as follows:1.    Construction of the transmission line to connect Lesedi to the existing power grid;2.    Installation of substations at the Lesedi site and at Serowe to integrate with the grid;3.    Installation of generation assets at Lesedi;4.    Commissioning and testing;5.    Sale of first power.Following the recent capital raising totalling £2.6m, the Company now has funds in place to allow the transmission line construction to commence. Crucially, the raising has allowed the Company to control the timing of project construction and it can now commence work on the transmission line regardless of the time it takes for other current funding negotiations to be completed.Those funding negotiations continue to move forward. The leading candidate has confirmed that the proposal has progressed to the next stage including an assessment by specialist advisors and due diligence. This is a precursor to making a final investment decision on a $10m finance facility for Tlou.Transmission Line TenderAs outlined above, the first phase of development will be the construction of a transmission line to connect to the electricity grid. The line will be ~100 Km in length with a 66kV overhead cable. The route has been surveyed and full environmental approval is in place. The line will predominantly cross relatively flat, arid terrain with the last ~5 Km being through the outskirts of the Serowe township.The Company issued tenders for the construction of the transmission line and substations and expect to award the tender early next quarter. The leading candidates are located in Botswana and South Africa. Therefore, access to Botswana to commence the work should not be an issue even if the pandemic persists. It is further noted that Tlou may stand to benefit from the relatively free movement over the border from South Africa to Botswana should goods and services be required from outside the country (subject to health checks and quarantine procedures in the event of positive COVID-19 tests).10MW Power Purchase Agreement (PPA)The Company continues to have regular correspondence with the advisors assisting the Government of Botswana to conclude the 10MW PPA process. The advisors have confirmed that they are reviewing project documents including the draft PPA. The Company is focused on progressing this to a conclusion as soon as possible. The Company has already secured a 2MW pilot PPA with Botswana Power Corporation and has a grid connection agreement in place.Orapa Gas Supply TenderBotswana Power Corporation has issued a tender for supply and delivery of natural gas to the Orapa 90MW power plant, further demonstrating that Botswana is serious about getting on with business this year. The power plant provides power to the Orapa diamond mine – one of the largest diamond mines in the world. Orapa is currently running on intermittent grid power and emergency diesel generation. Anglo American PLC, owner of the De Beers group, and co-owner of Orapa along with the Government of Botswana, has publicly stated their objective to move to cleaner fuel sources. Gas from Tlou’s nearby discoveries could be ideally suited to assist with meeting their cleaner energy objectives. The Company will review the tender documentation and subject to meeting the eligibility criteria plan to submit a response. The tender closes in May.Tlou’s Managing Director Tony Gilby said: “We are looking forward to a productive 2021 with significant progress in key areas of the Company’s business being achieved so far. We have great expectations for the Serowe CBM play within the 100% owned Boomslang permit area and subject to funding we can drill to evaluate it with environmental approval secured.Tlou’s flagship Lesedi project continues to advance towards first revenue with funds secured to commence the transmission line linking it to the existing electricity grid. Project funding to install generating capacity and fund more work on the ground is anticipated in the near future.It is noted that gas developments within the highly prospective Mamba and Boomslang permit areas can be readily tied back to the Lesedi power station and in time could provide additional revenue generating opportunities for the Company. Our environmental approvals include gas gathering lines.We have a strong pipeline of projects that are gradually coming to fruition. The recent capital raise has allowed Tlou to better control our project development and provide a firm foundation for near term growth.” Source: Company Press Release Botswana’s Department of Environmental Affairs (DEA) has approved the EIS for Tlou’s Boomslang projectlast_img read more

Tips for the Young Lawyer

admin No Comments

first_img August 15, 2005 Regular News Tips for the Young Lawyer Tips for the Young Lawyer Thoroughly investigate the background of a prospective expert Francisco Ramos, Jr. My biggest fear is to be sitting next to my expert at deposition, and under cross examination, hear him admit that, yes, he’s a convicted felon; or that, yes, his professional license was suspended; or that, it is true, his opinions contradict those he has given in other cases; or that, in fact, his credentials are bogus, and he is no more of an expert than I am.Imagine hearing that for the first time at deposition. This fear drives me to thoroughly investigate the background of a prospective expert. I do the legwork to ensure that I hire the best expert I can, an exceptionally qualified one who will help me win my case. To find the right expert, start with the following:• Decide what type of expert to hire. Before you start your search, you have to decide what type of expert to hire. If you are looking for a doctor to perform a medical examination, what do you want his specialty to be? Do you want him to have a sub-specialty? Hiring the wrong type of expert can result in great opinions from someone not qualified to render them.• Get leads from expert referral services. For a fee, expert referral services will provide you the names and contact information of several experts with the expertise you are looking for.• Get leads from local bar associations. Some local bar associations have expert databases. Generally, these lists are free to members. Furthermore, some associations will send an e-mail to its membership on your behalf, asking for the names of potential experts.• Get leads from friends. Consider compiling an e-mail list of your own, a list of friends who practice in the same field. When you need an expert, you can e-mail everyone on the list, requesting names of experts in a given field.• Get leads off the Internet. Go online, and do a Google search for the type of expert you are looking for. You will find plenty of Web sites dedicated to experts in your chosen field.Once you have the names of some potential experts, you need to narrow the field to the one or two experts that best serve your client’s interests. To do so, consider the following:• What do other lawyers have to say about the expert? Contact legal organizations and ask what their members have to say about your prospective expert. Some bar organizations have e-mail services that allow you to ask their members what they know about a given expert.• What do other experts have to say about the expert? When deciding on an expert, ask the prospects you interview whom they believe are the leaders in their field, the expert’s experts.• What does the public have to say about the expert? Type in the expert’s name on the Internet and see what you find. You may find an article about his vast accomplishments. Conversely, you may find an article about how he was arrested for Medicare fraud.• What do judges have to say about the expert? Do a national search for your expert on Westlaw to see if he has ever been the subject of an appellate court opinion. You may find a case limiting or striking the expert’s opinions.• What do juries have to say about the expert? Type in the expert’s name in the Westlaw database for Florida jury verdicts and see what his track record has been. When he testifies for the plaintiff, do the plaintiffs generally receive large verdicts? When he testifies for the defense, does he generally contribute to a defense verdict? Also, the jury verdicts you pull will have the names of the attorneys who retained the expert. Contact those attorneys to obtain additional information about him.• Ask your expert the tough questions. Don’t hire an expert until you speak to him. Tell him about your case and listen to how he can help you. Ask the hard questions about his credentials, his qualifications to testify in your case and any skeletons he may have in his closet. Have his opinions ever been limited or rejected by a court? Has his professional license ever been suspended or revoked? Has he ever been sued for malpractice?• Ask for references. Ask an expert for the names of attorneys who have retained him in the past. If he refuses, look elsewhere. Once you have references, call them and see what they have to say. Did the expert make a good witness at deposition? At trial? Was he cooperative? Was he accessible?• Pick apart the expert’s curriculum vitae. Review his curriculum vitae as if he were the opposing party’s expert. Where did the expert go to school? What advanced degrees does he have? Ask the expert for copies of articles he has written on the subject area about which you have asked him or her to testify. The last thing you want is an expert whose written opinions contradict the opinions you hope he or she will provide in your case.• Review prior deposition transcripts. Different services are available to obtain prior deposition transcripts of experts. Request one or two of them and see how the expert does under cross-examination.• Perform a background search on the expert. Perform an inexpensive background search on the expert, which will contain any prior arrests or convictions, the names of companies the expert has been affiliated with, and lawsuits in which the expert has been involved. H iring experts is a complex business. Experts want your client’s money, and some will exaggerate their credentials or expertise to get it. You need to do your due diligence and learn everything you can before taking the plunge. Which expert you hire can mean the difference between winning and losing. Choose wisely.
