Its expertise and experience includes pipeline quality gas production; electric power generation; carbon reduction and offset credits; renewable energy credits; and LFG collection system operations.The listing of Montauk is as a result of its unbundling from parent company Hosken Consolidated Investments Limited (HCI), an investment holding group listed on the JSE.

The separate listing also provides Montauk with the opportunity to raise additional capital to facilitate future expansion, if required. Immediately following the unbundling, HCI shareholders will hold Montauk shares in proportion to their shareholdings in HCI.Donna Oosthuyse, Director – Capital Markets JSE says: “The JSE welcomes Montauk to the board, in what is a most relevant sector at this time. The renewable energy industry has become increasingly prominent over the decades. Regulators are focussed on the impact of industrialisation on the global climate, and governments are prioritising the use of alternate fuel sources. The energy sector is now concentrated on continually improving zero and low-emission technologies and there is an accelerated trend towards greener and more efficient energy generation.  We have seen significant investment in this sector of our economy over the past three years and we anticipate an increase in interest in the investment community in companies with this profile.”Other companies in the Oil and Gas sector - which has a total market capitalisation of R305 Billion, comprising 2.7% of the overall JSE market capitalisation – are Sasol, Sacoil, Oando, and CAMAC Energy.
