Mediterranean-focused oil and gas producer Energean Oil and Gas has entered into a conditional sale and purchase agreement to acquire Edison Exploration & Production, an Edison unit for $750 million. 

Energean said in its statement that an additional $100 million will be paid following first gas from the Cassiopean development, offshore Italy, expected in 2022.

Edison will also receive an 8 percent royalty on profit production resulting from future discoveries made by upcoming exploration wells in the North Thekah Offshore and North East Hap’y Blocks, offshore Egypt.

Edison E&P’s portfolio of assets includes producing assets in Egypt, Italy, Algeria, the UK North Sea and Croatia, development assets in Egypt, Italy and Norway and balanced-risk exploration opportunities across the portfolio.

The Edison E&P portfolio adds working interest 2P reserves of 292 mmboe and 2018 net working interest production of 69 kboe/d, the statement reads.

The acquisition of Edison E&P on attractive metrics is in line with Energean’s stated strategy of creating the leading independent, gas-focused E&P company in the Mediterranean.

Energean said the group will have a total of 639 mmboe of 2P reserves and will be one of the largest independent E&P companies listed on the London and the Tel Aviv Stock Exchanges.

It is also expected to produce more than 140 kboe/d in 2021, when the Karish and Tanin development project comes onstream, with a trajectory to approximately 200 kboe/d once the Energean Power FPSO reaches full capacity.
