Daesung Industrial Co., Ltd.

- Petroleum gas division

As the Korean government changed the consumption energy policy in the 1960s to use oil modulus, Daesung Group established gas and petroleum division (respectively in 1964 and 1968) to yield to the national standard and to adapt to the new market conditions.
20 gas stations and 6 gas charge stations operate in Seoul. 19 gas stations and 8 gas charge stations operate in Daegu.

Operation of gas station and charge station

- Overseas resource development division

Established in 1947, we have been the leader of energy distribution in Korea. The search for foreign resources began with the investment to the Drayton coal Mining development in Australia in 1981. Drayton provides 400,000 tons of coal fuel for domestic consumption annually.

In January 1990 we created the oil exploration team handling investment and development for oil and gas field search. We participated in the discovering of the Libya oil field with estimated reserves amounting to approximately 600milllion barrels and is planned to start production by late 2003 with 3 other Korean corporations.

Furthermore, we started investing in Vietnam gas field with 7 Korean corporations since May 1992 with 100% holdings. We aim to produce the gas to supply the local generating plants in Vietnam.

Daesung Industrial Co. registered as a local corporation in the US to participate in the development of oil fields in Oklahoma and in Texas.

We participated in the development project of a marine gas filed in the Middle East in association with 7 Korean corporations in December 1997. The site, generating gas since 1999, has generated income through dividends since 2001. LNG will be supplied to Korea Gas Corporation. Over $ 1 million annual profit is expected.

We also participated in developing the Natural Gas in Siberia, Russia in September 1998 with 7 other 7 Korean corporations. The Natural Gas will be channeled to Korea through China by a pipeline. Three countries, Russia, China, and Korea, are assessing the business plan.

Since February 2002, US, UK, Italy, etc have been investing in the Kazakhstan oil field, the world's largest petroleum reserve area near the Caspian Sea. Daesung, in association with 5 other Korean corporations, is assessing plans for participation in the oil exploration. This plan is scheduled for initiation in the year 2003.

Daesung Industrial Co, as energy-experts, will constantly invest to secure oil for Korea.
