The following is a round-up of earnings and trading updates by London-listed companies, issued on Wednesday and not separately reported by Alliance News:

----------

Southern Energy Corp - Calgary, Canada-based natural gas exploration and production company - In the three months that ended September 30, net loss is $2.4 million, swinging from net earnings of $6.6 million a year earlier. Petroleum and natural gas sales falls to $5.3 million from $19.2 million. ‘Southern is in an extremely strong position in the fourth quarter of 2023, with prevailing natural gas prices having significantly increased and our balance sheet capitalized, enabling us to go after the organic growth opportunities in our portfolio,’ says Chief Executive Officer Ian Atkinson. ‘We continue to be encouraged by the outlook of supply and demand dynamics for US natural gas, as at least two of the upcoming Gulf Coast [liquefied natural gas] export projects, at Cheniere Energy’s Corpus Christi expansion and Golden Pass LNG have recently announced they are ahead of schedule. Southern is well positioned to capitalize on natural gas prices with production behind pipe which can be brought on stream in a short time frame and we are excited to continue to grow the business with our new and longstanding shareholders.’
