for commercial, business  development activities  within that  region and  was 
directly responsible for  BG's businesses in  Tanzania, Kenya and  Madagascar. 
During his tenure with BG, he was also President of BG Asia Pacific, based in
Singapore, where he was responsible for BG's oil, gas and power businesses  in 
Singapore, Thailand, Philippines,  Malaysia and  China. His  responsibilities 
for  China  involved  signing  concessions  with  China  and  negotiating  the 
successful sale of assets to  CNOOC and Sinopec, thus developing  senior-level

Engineer and holds a first class  honours degree in Chemical Engineering  from

important time. The  Company has a  unique and prospective  set of assets  in 
China, together  with an  experienced and  committed team  ready to  take  the 
business forward. It  is an exciting  time of investment  and growth for  the 
Company and I look forward to bringing my gas industry experience to the board
to help Green  Dragon Gas  serve the  high-growth, high-value  gas markets  in 
China."

that the range of his  expertise and the breadth  of his experience are  quite 
complementary to our current board and  thus will be of great accretive  value 
to the Company. In particular his experience of operating integrated gas-only
focused businesses as well as his experience within the PRC combined with  his 
engineering background  will be  of significant  benefit. I  look forward  to 
working with Wayne as we  expand the scale of  the Company's operations as  it 
continues its development from exploration to production; his addition to  the 
board is timely."
