CNOOC Signs $2.268B Agreement with SAPETRO

Tuesday, January 10, 2006
CNOOC Limited signed a definitive agreement with South Atlantic Petroleum Limited to acquire a 45 percent working interest in an offshore oil mining license ''OML 130'' in Nigeria for $2.268 billion, subject to adjustments. The purchase will be funded from the internal resources of CNOOC Ltd. OML 130 is covered by both a Production Sharing Agreement and a Production Sharing Contract, each of which governs a 50 percent interest in OML 130. SAPETRO is currently the sole contractor and sole interest holder in the PSC. Under the agreement, CNOOC will be acquiring a 90 percent interest in the PSC and hence, a 45 percent working interest in OML 130. Located in Nigeria, the world's fifth largest crude oil exporter, the Niger Delta region is one of the world's most prolific oil and gas basins.
