AIM Investor: Nature Group (NGR)

First published in AIM Investor: the Water sector on AIM: Cleantech magazine, Volume 6 Issue 6 - December 2012

Nature Group (NGR) provides environmentally friendly wastewater treatment services for the oil, marine and process sectors, with environmental legislation leading to more interest in the company’s facilities and technology. Although NGR’s core port operations are in Rotterdam, Stavanger and Gibraltar, the company has been expanding geographically. A joint venture in Panama with Sociedad Latino Americana de Inversiones has started to build, and will operate a maritime waste logistics and processing facility. A similar joint venture is being discussed in the US region of the Gulf of Mexico.

In the oil and gas sector, NGR’s compact treatment unit (CTU) can process wastewater and used drilling mud on an offshore drilling platform. Another type of CTU, which processes produced water from drilling, can either be on-site or brought to the site at short notice and be up and running within hours.

Investment in expansion has held back short term profitability. In addition, an industrial accident in May 2011 at the waste treatment facility in Gibraltar led to the shutdown of operations there. Although this has not yet recommenced, it is hoped that a timeframe for repairs and the restarting of operations will be announced by the end of 2012.
