Despite these highly challenging circumstances, the Company has continued to make progress in a number of key areas and continues to adapt its business to operate, both in the current environment, and to develop its business strategies to deliver a long-term and sustainable business.

We still retain a sharp focus on costs and conserving cash but as commodity prices improve we will continue to invest in our assets where appropriate and to move ahead purposefully with our geothermal and hydrogen projects."
