Chevron Announces Sale of Interests in Chad and Cameroon
SAN RAMON, Calif. -- June 13, 2014
Chevron Corporation (NYSE: CVX) today announced that its subsidiary, Chevron
Global Energy Inc., has sold its 25 percent non-operated interest in a
producing oil concession in southern Chad and the related export pipeline
interests to the Republic of Chad for approximately $1.3 billion. The sale
closed June 13.
“This sale demonstrates our focus on strategically managing our portfolio to
maximize the value of our global upstream businesses,” said George Kirkland,
vice chairman of Chevron Corporation.
“These assets have played a significant role for Chevron in Africa for the
past 14 years,” said Ali Moshiri, president of Chevron Africa and Latin
America Exploration and Production Company. “They have been a profitable part
of our portfolio for many years. The combination of current market conditions
and the size of the assets relative to our portfolio make this an ideal time
for a divestiture.”
The transaction includes the sale of the Chevron subsidiary’s interests in
seven fields in Chad’s Doba Basin, which in 2013 had an average net daily
crude oil production of about 18,000 barrels. The sale also includes the
Chevron subsidiary’s approximate 21 percent non-operated interest in a
pipeline system that transports crude oil to the coast of Cameroon as well as
associated marine facilities.
