中国石化新闻网讯 据离岸工程网站9月9日消息 石油和天然气公司科斯莫能源周三表示,已同意以至多2亿美元的价格向壳牌出售部分前沿勘探资产权益。

壳牌将收购科斯莫在圣多美和普林西比、苏里南、纳米比亚和南非近海区块的权益,这些区块将先期支付1亿美元。该交易还包括在资产组合中钻取的前四口探井每次商业发现时应支付的或有付款5000万美元,总额上限为1亿美元。四口井中的三口目前计划在2021年开采。

科斯莫表示,公司将动用至多三分之一的初始收益,在墨西哥湾测试两个以基础设施为主导的高质量勘探前景,每一个都提供了一个低成本、低碳开发计划的枢纽规模潜力。

该公司表示,预计将使用剩余收益减少其信贷融通项下的未偿借款。

科斯莫能源董事长兼首席执行官Andrew G.Inglis表示:“通过此次交易,我们将继续将我们的勘探组合集中在已探明的盆地上,这些盆地具有较高、较短的回报率和巨大的资源潜力。这些收益使科斯莫加快了高品位勘探机会,同时加强了资产负债表,使科斯莫能够创造额外的股东价值。与壳牌签订的协议中的或有付款确保了我们在无需进一步投资的情况下,保留了前沿勘探的优势。”

交易预计于2020年第四季度完成,生效日期为2020年9月1日,并受包括政府批准在内的惯例条件的约束。

根据协议,壳牌将收购科斯莫在南比亚近海PEL0039区块45%的权益、南非NCUD区块45%的权益、苏里南42区块33.33%的权益。在圣多美和普林西比,壳牌将收购科斯莫在以下区块的股份:6号区块、11号区块、10和13号区块。

Shell Buys Kosmos' Frontier Exploration Assets for Up to $200M

Oil and gas company Kosmos Energy said Wednesday it had agreed to sell some of its frontier exploration asset interests to Shell for up to $200 million

Shell will acquire Kosmos’ interest in blocks offshore São Tomé & Príncipe, Suriname, Namibia, and South Africa for which will pay $100 million upfront. The deal also includes contingent payments of $50 million payable upon each commercial discovery from the first four exploration wells drilled across the asset portfolio, capped at $100 million in aggregate. Three of the four wells are currently planned for 2021.

Kosmos said it would use up to one-third of the initial proceeds to test two high-quality infrastructure-led exploration prospects in the Gulf of Mexico, each offering hub scale potential with a low-cost, lower-carbon development scheme.

The company said it expected to use the remainder of the proceeds to reduce borrowings outstanding under its credit facilities.

Andrew G. Inglis, Kosmos Energy’s chairman and chief executive officer said: “With this transaction, we are continuing to focus our exploration portfolio on proven basins that offer superior returns with shorter payback and significant resource potential. The proceeds enable Kosmos to accelerate high graded exploration opportunities while strengthening the balance sheet, positioning Kosmos to create additional shareholder value. The contingent payments locked into the agreement with Shell ensure we retain upside from frontier exploration with no further investment.”

Closing of the transaction is expected in the fourth quarter of 2020 with an effective date of September 1, 2020, and is subject to customary conditions including government approvals.

Under the agreement Shell will acquire Kosmos' 45% interest in PEL0039 block offshore Nambia; 45% interest in Block NCUD in South Africa; 33,33% in Block 42 in Suriname. In São Tomé & Príncipe Shell will acquire Kosmos' shares in the following blocks: Block 6 / 25%; Block 11 / 35%; Blocks 10 & 13 / 35%.
