Tullow exits Uganda project, sells stake to Total for $575 million
Tullow Oil (TLW.L) said that Total (TOTF.PA) has agreed to buy its entire stake in their joint onshore oil fields in Uganda for $575 million as part of its target to raise $1 billion this year to tackle its $2.8 billion debt pile.
Tullow, whose shares have shed around 90% since last April and whose market capitalisation was around $285 million on Wednesday, will receive $500 million in cash and $75 million once a final investment decision is reached on the project, it said on Thursday.
An agreement on a tax issue with the Ugandan authorities, which had delayed the sale of a smaller stake in the project to Total for months, has been reached in principle, Tullow said.
“We are pleased to announce that a new agreement has been reached with Tullow ... for less than $2 a barrel in line with our strategy of acquiring long-term resources at low cost, and that we have an agreement with the Uganda on the fiscal framework,” Total Chief Patrick Pouyanne said in a statement.
Money from the sale will be used “to reduce Tullow’s net debt, strengthening the balance sheet and moving Tullow towards a more conservative capital structure,” the company said.
