Anglo-Eastern Plantations PLC - producer of palm oil and rubber across Indonesia and Malaysia - Says own production of fresh fruit bunches 460,800 tonnes in five months to end of May, down 3% on year ago. Says plantations in North Sumetera with younger palms performed reasonably well, while plantations with older palms in Bengkulu and Kalimantan experienced a drop in production. The crude palm oil ex-Rotterdam price averaged $1,650 per tonne in the period, up 47% year-on-year. At June 10, the CPO price ex-Rotterdam closed at $1,660. ‘We expect the ex-mill price in Indonesia to improve after the government issued guidelines and regulations on 14 June 2022 to accelerate the shipment of palm oil following the lifting of the export ban. However, we expect a pullback in the CPO price as crop production improves further in the second half of the year,’ it says.

We recognise the pressure challenging markets and falling share prices place on investor portfolios and are respectful of this whilst still enthusiastically articulating our progress and our ambitions,’ says Chief Executive Paul Johnson.

Echo Energy PLC - London-based energy company focused on Latin America - Is granted up to two further months to publish its annual accounts for calendar 2021. ‘This additional period is in view of the adverse impact of Covid-19 having resulted in delays in the ability of the local Argentinian Santa Cruz Sur joint venture entity in which Echo holds a 70% interest to provide information to its Argentinian auditor,’ it explains. Expects to report 2021 revenue of $11.1 million, flat on 202.

This is good news for the CS Project. Whilst we were confident that the CS Natural Pozzolan would pass Caltrans’s testing procedures, this is an important step forward as many concrete specifiers look to this list as an independent endorsement when specifying for a wider range of non-Caltrans projects,’ says Executive Chair Patrick Cheetham.
