The board of AWE Limited has given Mineral Resources three days to match the $A602m cash offer from rival suitor Mitsui. Meanwhile, Beach Energy CEO Matt Kay has declined to comment on whether his company could join in the bidding war for AWE. The two companies jointly own the Waitsia onshore gas field in Western Australia, and Kay says Beach has no preference regarding its future partner in the project. However, he adds that Beach is monitoring the takeover battle to ensure that the interests of its shareholders are protected.
