Kevin Gao, the Australian business manager of China Energy Reserve & Chemicals Group, stresses that supplying the Western Australian gas market will be the Chinese group’s priority if its takeover bid for AWE Limited succeeds. He has downplayed concerns that CERCG aims to primarily supply the Chinese market via its $A463m hostile bid. Gao adds that gas from the Waitsia gas field in the Perth Basin could potentially be shipped to Australia’s east coast if supply is surplus to demand in WA. CERCG is offering $A0.73 per share for AWE.
