Source: www.gulfoilandgas.com 12/7/2021, Location: Europe

INPEX has agreed to enter a stock transfer agreement with Diamond Generating Europe B.V. (DGE-NL), a Dutch registered, wholly owned second generation subsidiary of Mitsubishi Corporation, and acquire a 50% stake in the Luchterduinen offshore wind farm and a 15% stake in the Borssele III/IV offshore wind farm operating off the coast of the Netherlands. This agreement was made through INPEX Renewable Energy Europe, newly established in the United Kingdom with the aim of promoting INPEX’s renewable energy business in Europe. The completion of the agreement is subject to the fulfillment of conditions precedent determined by the stock transfer agreement including approvals by Dutch authorities and others.

The Luchterduinen offshore wind farm is located 23 kms offshore Noordwijk and has been in commercial operation since September 2015 with an output scale of 129 megawatts produced by 43 3-megawatt units.

The Borssele III/IV offshore wind farm is located 22 kms off the coast of Westkapelle and has been in commercial operation since January 2021 with an output scale of 731.5 megawatts produced by 77 9.5-megawatt units.

INPEX seeks to enhance and emphasize renewable energy initiatives, which is one of the business pillars outlined in the company’s 'Business Development Strategy - Towards a Net Zero Carbon Society by 2050' announced in January 2021.

INPEX will accelerate its initiatives aimed at its geothermal power generation business, which can utilize the technologies cultivated by the company through oil and natural gas development, and its offshore wind power generation business, which makes use of the company’s experience in constructing and operating offshore floating facilities gained at overseas worksites. Through the acquisition of these assets, INPEX will actively work on further reforming the energy structure towards the realization of a net zero carbon society in 2050.

While the impact of this acquisition on INPEX’s consolidated financial results for the current fiscal year is expected to be minimal, the acquisition is expected to contribute to INPEX’s consolidated financial performance over the medium- to long-term.
