During the last week, Po Valley Energy, an Italian gasfield development company, made its debut on the ASX. The proceeds from the sale of shares will be used to carry out a gas field development program in Northern Italy. The company has a rapidly expanding pipeline of new projects and has a growing project portfolio. This makes it a good investment opportunity for investors in Australia. The ASX has a history of regulating energy companies, but it’s important to make sure you’re aware of the risks involved before you buy.
