Liquefied Natural Gas Ltd (LNGLY) Quarterly Highlights for June 2016

Perth, Australia (ABN Newswire) - Liquefied Natural Gas Limited's (ASX:LNG) (OTCMKTS:LNGLY) (LNGL or the Company) focus continues to be threefold: complete marketing of Magnolia LNG's offtake capacity to progress this project through financing and into construction; finalize Bear Head LNG regulatory permitting, engineering, and the marketing of liquefaction tolling capacity; and preserving our existing liquidity through effective cash management. The LNGL executives and staff are committed to delivering these key objectives.
The Company's total cash position as at 30 June 2016 was A$71.4 million and there is no debt.

The LNG industry is currently challenged by an LNG supply / demand imbalance. However, the Company's business model of mid-scale LNG export projects, using our wholly owned patented OSMR(R) liquefaction process technology, positions the Company for long-term global success due, in part, to our industry leading low cost solutions.

I look forward to meeting our shareholders who are able to attend the presentations this week in Sydney (25th July), Melbourne (27th July), and Perth (28th July), which we have highlighted in an ASX release on 6 July.
