Major Gas Find in Southland
TINY exploration company L&M Petroleum has found a much bigger than expected seam of coal gas in Southland -- a find that could be worth $500 million and rival the Kupe gasfield in Taranaki.
But investors seemed unimpressed, with L&M shares dipping 1 cent to close at 19c yesterday.
"The first seam has come in 50 per cent thicker and, according to the field geologist, the cores were 'fizzing with gas'," he said.
