KrisEnergy Sells Stake in Indonesian Asset to BP
Southeast Asia-focused KrisEnergy has closed the deal to sell its 30% non-operated stake in the Andaman 2 production-sharing agreement (PSA) off Indonesia to BP for $15mn, it said April 8 in a statement.
The purchase price of $15mn is subject to a retention sum of $1.7mn which BP may use to offset any payment obligations of KrisEnergy which may become due between April 8, 2020 and December 31, 2021, the company said
KrisEnergy had agreed to divest the stake to BP in November last year but did not disclose the value of the deal at that time. The company reported in late October it had accepted a binding offer for the stake from a major international oil company, without revealing the bidder's identity.
Andaman 2 lies in the North Sumatra basin, covering 7,400-km2 in waters 200 to 1,950 metres deep. It is operated by the UK’s Premier Oil with 40%, while the UAE’s state fund Mubadala has 30%.
