    • $88,066 of third-party payables were settled via the issuance of 880,660 Units Shares as per the press release dated December 7, 2023.

Recapitalization Efforts

  • Equity raise of $849,622 closed on February 1, 2024 via the issuance of 16,992,440 Units Shares as at $0.05per Unit.

Advancing Green Hydrogen Production Efforts

The Charbone team has worked diligently to refine its technology and proprietary processes with the goal of delivering a network of 16 modular and scalable green hydrogen production facilities in strategic areas across North America by 2030. Development of Charbone's flagship green hydrogen facility, located in the City of Sorel-Tracy, Quebec along Highway 30's "Steel Highway," is set to come online in mid-2024. Production will follow a phased approach, gradually accelerating to produce approximately 200 kg per day once reaching initial full capacity. In the US, plant development will begin with the recently announced project in the Detroit, Michigan area.

"The decisions made to improve operational efficiencies have provided us with a clear path toward achieving several important milestones throughout the course of 2024," Gagnon continued. "I want to thank our shareholders and business partners for their support as we push forward with an exciting green hydrogen production agenda in the months ahead."

ASX Oil and Gas Stocks: 5 Biggest Companies in 2024

Experts are calling for continued price volatility in the global oil and gas market in 2024.

Thanks to factors including Saudi Arabia's voluntary oil production cuts and a drop in US commercial crude oil inventories, Brent crude prices rose to an average of US$94 per barrel this past September. However, concerns over worldwide oil demand growth and rising global inventories pushed prices down to US$78 in December. Heading into the second quarter of 2024, oil prices are riding an uptrend spurred on by rising tensions in the Middle East amid tightening supplies.

Oil prices may be surging, but natural gas prices have been on a sharp decline since November. This shift is particularly evident in mature markets, such as the Asia Pacific region, Europe and North America, which are experiencing reductions in gas demand as they sought alternatives like renewables and pursued improved energy efficiency.

Is Now a Good Time to Invest in Oil Stocks?

Investing in oil stocks can be a lucrative endeavor, but determining the right time to enter a sector known for volatile swings can be tricky.

Over the past five years, the oil market’s inherent volatility has been on clear display. Major declines in consumption brought on by the COVID-19 lockdowns was followed by oil prices surging to US$120 per barrel in mid-2022, as the world economy began to recover and Russia’s invasion of Ukraine led to the consequent sanctions on Russian oil.

However, in the first half of 2023, fears of a global recession gave rise to bearish sentiment over much of the oil sector and pushed prices as low as US$67 during the period. Despite a spike above the US$91 level in Q3, oil prices trended downward in Q4 to dip below the US$70 mark even with conflict escalating in the Middle East.
