Petronas Gas becomes controlling shareholder of Dialog's PLNG-2 unit

KUALA LUMPUR (Dec 16): Petronas Gas Bhd (PetGas) is now the controlling shareholder in Pengerang LNG (Two) Sdn Bhd (PLNG-2), a special vehicle which used to be wholly owned by Dialog LNG Sdn Bhd, which is in turn a wholly owned unit of Dialog Group Bhd. 

In a Bursa Malaysia filing this afternoon, Dialog said PLNG-2 has ceased to be a subsidiary of Dialog Group following PetGas' subscription of 780,000 ordinary shares - representing a 72.22% stake in PLNG-2 - for RM780,000, cash. This means that Dialog LNG now only holds 27.78% in PLNG-2.

"The intended equity shareholding of PetGas of 65% and Dialog LNG of 25% in PLNG-2, as earlier announced, will be achieved upon subscription by State Secretary, Johor (Incorporated) (SSI) of its 10% shareholding, which is expected in 2015," said Dialog in its filing. 

According to the shareholders' agreement signed on Nov 14 this year, PLNG-2 will be restructured whereby PetGas will acquire 65%, Dialog LNG to hold 25% and the SSI to hold the remaining 10%.

PLNG-2 will develop the liquefied natural gas (LNG) regasification facilities comprising of a regasification unit and two units of 200,000 m3 LNG storage tanks with an initial send out capacity of 3.5 million tonnes per annum of natural gas at Pengerang, Southern Johor, for about RM2.7 billion. 

As at 3pm, Dialog shares were four sen lower at RM1.28 with a market capitalisation of RM6.34 billion. PetGas was four sen down at RM21.20, giving it a market capitalisation of RM42.07 billion.
