'A huge amount of work has been completed so far this year and much remains to be concluded during the remainder of 2021. Having secured a long-term LNG sales agreement with Afriquia Gaz, we have established a route to market for our gas and following completion of the proposed $18M loan from Afriquia Gaz, the Company will have financing for the Sound Energy share of the Phase 1 development. With important catalysts to come in the near term, I look forward to updating shareholders further as we progress towards the development phase of the project and to becoming a revenue generating business. I would like to thank all our staff, contractors, partners, noteholders, shareholders and other stakeholders for their commitment and support. I feel confident that Sound Energy is moving in the right direction and is building a business that will deliver real value for our investors by playing our part in fuelling the energy transition.'
