CNOOC to Bid on Nation Energy

Friday, January 13, 2006
CNOOC is likely to bid for a Kazakhstan oil company just days after it unveiled plans to spend $2.3 billion on offshore oil and gas assets in Nigeria, www.TheStandard.com reported. CNOOC is eyeing an offer for Nations Energy, an independent oil producer based in Canada. The move by CNOOC comes after the company announced the acquisition of a 45 percent stake in oil and gas fields owned by Nigerian oil company South Atlantic Petroleum earlier this week. The deepwater fields are contained in a 1,295-square-kilometer tract off the Niger River Delta and contain estimated recoverable reserves of 1.1 billion barrels of oil equivalent. Nine-year-old Nations first bought assets in Kazakhstan in 1997. It operates OJSC Karazhanbasmunai - Kazakhstan's ninth-largest oil producer - in the west of the country on the Caspian Sea. The company has sunk about $370 million into the Central Asian operation. The fields produced 48,000 barrels a day as of March 2005, and output is expected to climb to 80,000 to 90,000 barrels a day by 2007. (SOURCE: www.TheStandard.com)
