Tellurian Inc. (Tellurian) (TELL) ended the second quarter with $823 million of cash on hand. During the quarter, Tellurian generated $61.3 million in revenues from natural gas sales on an increase of production of approximately 47% as compared to the previous quarter. Subsequent to the quarter end, Tellurian entered into an agreement to acquire various natural gas assets located on approximately 5,000 net acres and including 44 producing wells.
President and CEO Octávio Simões said, “Tellurian’s business model provides a unique proposition amongst U.S. liquefied natural gas (LNG) producers. By having our own natural gas production, we create cash from domestic sales that we can use for further investment, and upon completion of Driftwood LNG, we have an economic hedge for natural gas purchases which creates additional value for our shareholders and Tellurian.”
“While Tellurian continues to add natural gas production and sales revenue, we are also progressing with construction of Driftwood LNG, having cleared the site and begun an extensive pile driving program to set the foundation for the first plant,” Simoes added.
