Company Overview

D3 Energy’s focus is on the exploration and development of the its initial asset, ER315 located in the Free State Province of South Africa. ER315 has the potential to be a supplier of much needed natural gas to South Africa for its current energy needs and progress towards energy transition.

In addition to the natural gas potential, D3 Energy has identified significant helium content in the gas identified in ER315. Current world-wide helium shortfalls have created a high price environment for helium, meaning that any volumes proved up in ER315 could yield substantial additional value from the project.

Global Helium Supply and Demand

  • Classic case of demand outstripping supply
  • Current demand growth of around 5-6% is double expected supply growth
  • Total market expected to grow from 6BCF to just over 8BCF in 2030
  • Tightening supply will have an obvious effect on price

Recent exploration activity

 Methane is the other major gas component ranging from 79.0% to 86.4%.

d3 Energy Checklist

  RBD10 flowed gas at a stabilised flow rate of 126 Mscfd for a 36-hour period with no evidence of decline.

d3 Energy Checklist

 RBD03, an historical borehole drilled in the 1980’s flowed at an average stabilised rate of 81 Mscfd over a 60-hour period with no evidence of decline.
