ConocoPhillips (COP) announced that it has completed its acquisition of Shell Enterprises LLC’s prolific Delaware basin position for $9.5 billion in cash. After customary closing adjustments, cash paid for the acquisition is approximately $8.6 billion, with an effective date of July 1, 2021. The assets include ~225,000 net acres and producing properties located entirely in Texas, as well as over 600 miles of operated crude, gas and water pipelines and infrastructure. Estimated 2022 production from these assets is expected to be approximately 200 MBOED, roughly half of which is operated.

“This deal was justified on three key merits: it meets our rigorous cost of supply framework, we see a way to drive efficiencies from the assets, and the transaction makes our 10-year plan better,” said Ryan Lance, chairman and chief executive officer. “We believe the addition of these high-quality assets improves our underlying business drivers, expands our cash from operations, enhances our ability to deliver higher returns on and of capital, and lowers our average GHG intensity.”

Lance continued, “The completion of this acquisition caps off an exceptional year and significantly strengthens our company as we head into 2022. We welcome a new group of employees and look forward to integrating these properties into our Permian business and realizing the full potential of this transaction.”
