CNOOC Elects not to Pre-empt Sale of Assets in Uganda

Source: www.gulfoilandgas.com 5/28/2020, Location: Africa

Tullow Oil plc announces that CNOOC Uganda Limited (CNOOC) has informed both Tullow and Total that it will not pre-empt the sale of Tullow's assets in Uganda to Total.

On 23 April 2020, Tullow announced that it had agreed the sale of its assets in Uganda to Total and that CNOOC had rights of pre-emption to acquire 50% of these assets on the same terms and conditions as Total. CNOOC has now informed Tullow and Total that it has elected not to exercise its pre-emption rights. Accordingly, there are no changes to the previously announced transaction or timeline and Tullow continues to expect the transaction to complete in the second half of 2020.

The transaction remains subject to a number of conditions, including approval by Tullow's shareholders, customary government and other approvals and the execution of a binding tax agreement with the Government of Uganda and the Uganda Revenue Authority that reflects the agreed tax principles previously announced. Tullow will now look to progress the tax agreement following CNOOC's decision not to pre-empt.
