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.
