After receiving the approval of Gabonese authorities, TotalEnergies has announced the closing of its agreement to divest to Perenco Oil and Gas Gabon the Cap Lopez Terminal and non-operated assets of its 58%-owned affiliate TotalEnergies EP Gabon.

With this transaction, in an amount of USD 350 million before final adjustment, TotalEnergies EP Gabon is divesting its interests in seven mature offshore fields operated by Perenco Oil and Gas Gabon, along with its interests and operatorship in the Cap Lopez oil terminal, to Perenco Oil and Gas Gabon. The divested assets’ production stood at 8,400 barrels of oil equivalent per day for the first three quarters of 2021.

“This transaction is aligned with TotalEnergies’ strategy to enhance its portfolio by divesting mature, high break-even fields. TotalEnergies EP Gabon is refocusing on its operated offshore assets in the Anguille and Torpille sectors and remains a committed oil industry player in Gabon,” says Henri-Max Ndong-Nzue, President of TotalEnergies EP Gabon.
