Santos has announced the sale of its Victorian assets to Cooper Energy for cash consideration of up to A$82 million.The sale will result in Santos exiting from offshore Victoria. In March 2016, Santos completed the sale of its interest in the Kipper gas field for A$520 million.

50% interest in the Sole gas field and the Orbost gas plant;

Santos’ share of production from these assets in the first half of 2016 was 5.2 petajoules of sales gas.

The total cash consideration is A$82 million, comprised of A$62 million at completion and a further milestone payment of A$20 million upon the earlier of a final investment decision on the Sole gas project or the receipt of cash proceeds from any sell-down by Cooper Energy of any of its interest in the sale assets.

Santos Managing Director and Chief Executive Officer Kevin Gallagher said: 'This sale is in line with our stated objective to rationalise and shape our asset portfolio in order to become a low cost, reliable and high performance business.'
