Development projects

Projects must meet stringent viability criteria, including environmental impact, sustaining capital expenditures and rates of return.

Our district consolidation strategy offers synergy potential with our other prospects and projects, reducing total capex requirements, whilst engineering and construction are carried out by our in-house teams.
