Source: www.gulfoilandgas.com 10/1/2019, Location: Africa

Savannah Petroleum PLC, the British independent oil & gas company focused around activities in Niger and Nigeria, is pleased to provide an update in relation to the Seven Energy Transaction.

Final long-form documentation has been signed by Frontier Oil Limited ("Frontier"), Seven Uquo Gas Limited ("SUGL") and Accugas Limited ("Accugas") in relation to the restructuring of economic ownership interests at the Uquo marginal field and the operatorship of the Uquo gas central processing facility (the "Uquo CPF"), in line with the Company's RNS dated 20 September 2018 (the "Frontier Transaction"). The Frontier Transaction will result in SUGL assuming responsibility for all operations (including production) of the gas project at the Uquo marginal field (including, inter alia, control of gas-related capital investment projects, design and implementation of operations and production plans, as well as day to day gas operations at the Uquo gas field) and will retain 100% of the revenue from gas sales. Frontier will control all oil related activities in the Uquo Field and retain 100% of revenue from oil sales. Operatorship of the Uquo CPF will be transferred to Accugas. Following completion of the Frontier Transaction, the Enlarged Group will have effective operational control of the Uquo gas supply chain.

The key terms of the Frontier Transaction are as per the Company's RNS dated 20 September 2018. The Frontier Transaction is conditional upon completion of the wider Seven Energy Transaction, and is expected to occur following Transaction completion.

The principal remaining condition precedent for the Transaction relates to the execution of long-form documentation in relation to Seven Energy's financial restructuring, following which the Transaction completion process will commence. This completion process will follow the pre-agreed steps set out in the legally binding Implementation Agreement signed in February 2019.

Andrew Knott, CEO of Savannah Petroleum, said:
"The signature of the Frontier Transaction documentation represents the achievement of one of the final remaining milestones to be reached as we move towards completion of the Seven Energy Transaction. The Frontier Transaction is of strategic significance, affording the Enlarged Group increased operational control across the gas value chain and enabling us to maximise value from the Uquo gas field. I would like to thank the Frontier and Seven teams for their support in finalising this key workstream, and I look forward to providing further updates on the Transaction as we move towards completion in the coming weeks."
