Strength in Numbers
Our footsteps can be found around the world with our strong network of affiliates. Our key affiliate Pacific LNG Operations Limited has been supporting us unceasingly since its inception in 2006. With collectively over 80 years of experience in managing multimillion-dollar energy projects, we are in a very favourable position in helping businesses and start-ups grow.
Clarion Finance was an early investor in InterOil Corp (NYSE: IOC) which drilled the largest vertical onshore gas wells in the world and was recently sold to Exxon. Pacific LNG Operations Ltd, which was incorporated by Clarion Finance in order to hold a direct interest in the concessions in Papua New Guinea (PNG), sold its interest in the PRL-15 gas field in 2014 for USD 900 million plus further payments.
In all of our ventures, we believe in building strong and lasting partnerships with our affiliates, clients and industry experts. And that is the cornerstone of our success.
