Australia’s LNG player, Santos, further clarified the media comments regarding a preliminary agreement between ENN and Harbour Energy (Harbour) for a joint bid for Santos takeover.

Initially, Santos said it was unaware of any agreements between ENN and Harbour.

ENN has since advised Santos that media reports were not an accurate translation of their announcement and should be interpreted as an intention to engage with Harbour and that no agreement has been reached between Harbour and ENN.

Santos confirms that the strategic agreement between Santos, ENN and Hony Capital (Hony) from June 2017 remains in effect.

This requires ENN and Hony to procure the exercise of voting and disposal rights attaching to their Santos shares in accordance with a majority recommendation of the Santos board in relation to a third-party change of control proposal.

Santos continues to advise that its shareholders take no action in relation to the Harbour proposal at this time.

In June 2018, Senegal will play host to the No.1 Annual B2B Upstream Oil & Gas event, which will bring together the senior decision makers from across the prolific West Africa region to discuss the trends and challenges currently facing the Oil and Gas industry.

Since the discovery by Tullow Oil in 2007 of the Jubilee Field in Ghana, the Upstream sector has refocused its efforts to explore similar plays around the entire West and North West African coast. These efforts were rewarded with Cairn Energy’s prolific discovery in 2014 followed by Kosmos’ in 2015. The West Africa region has the industry’s spotlight firmly focused on further unlocking the potential of this largely underexplored region.

Companies that will be looking toward further unlocking the deepwater hydrocarbon potential of West Africa include: PETROSEN, BP, Kosmos Energy, Cairn Energy, FAR, Total E&P, Premier Oil, Shell, Tullow Oil along with the Ministries and key solution providers.
