4 June, Business Times: Rex expects to reap revenues from oil production
"Rex International chief executive officer Mans Lidgren says: "When the oil price was US$27 to US$30 per barrel, there was no way we could take these assets to production and profit. So, we had to sit back and wait until oil prices came back. We always believed it would... it was a question of timing. Three years on, now we are concentrating hard on getting our assets to production because if oil prices stay where they are, we can produce profitably and bring good revenue to the company.""
"According to him [Rex executive chairman Dan Brostrom], Rex's technologies have high predictive capabilities of dry wells, which saves oil exploration teams time and money. To drill an offshore dry well could cost at least US$20 million – an outlay that can be saved if "a couple of hundred thousands" spent doing a study with Rex's technology shows a low likelihood of finding oil there."

"Not that many companies of our size are pre-qualified in Norway and I think is right to say that our technology played a very important part in us getting that pre-qualification," said Mr Dan Broström, executive chairman of REX.
As CEO Mans Lidgren recounted: "We have used our technology-led, de-risked exploration approach to build a cluster of investments in the Rolvsnes area in the North Sea. They are close to existing pipeline infrastructure, so that upon more discoveries, commercialisation can be fast-tracked."

"Singapore-based Rex International Holding Limited, the majority shareholder in Masirah Oil Limited, which owns and operates Block 50 off the Sultanate’s eastern seaboard, says it sees the potential to commence production from a key offshore discovery next year.
"The evaluation of the development programme for the GA South-1 discovery in Oman is ongoing and will continue until the first half of 2018. Should the evaluation be positive, the Group will aim to start production from GA South-1 in 2019,” said Rex International in its newly published 2017 Annual Report."

"Måns Lidgren, CEO of Rex International Holding, said: “PL818B, like the Rolvsnes discovery, is located near to Johan Sverdrup, one of the five largest oil fields on the Norwegian continental shelf, and adjacent to the producing Edvard Grieg and Ivar Aasen fields. "We are very pleased that LPA now holds stakes in a cluster of investments in this oil-prolific area that already has pipeline infrastructure in place, allowing a fasttrack path to potential commercialization and return on investment when we make more oil discoveries.""
